Does a freshwater aquarium need an air pump?

While it isn't necessary to have an air circulation pump for a freshwater aquarium, it is beneficial for most setups. Air pumps provide essential aeration, ensuring a healthy oxygen level for fish and beneficial bacteria. They also create surface agitation, which aids in gas exchange and prevents the water from becoming stagnant. The need for an air pump will largely depend on the aquarium size and the efficiency of the filtration system.

Can I use a single pump for multiple purposes, such as filtration and water circulation?

Yes, a single pump can be used for multiple purposes in freshwater aquariums. Many modern aquarium pumps are designed with adjustable flow rates, allowing you to customise their function for filtration, water circulation, and even powering additional accessories like UV sterilizers. This versatility simplifies the setup and helps maintain a well-balanced environment for your aquatic inhabitants.
