Here's a good substitute for your water pumps and power heads. The Marineland Flexible Bubble Wand from Pet Store, which measures at 48 inches in length, is a flexible strip of plastic that allows you to create bubbles anywhere you like. It is similar in appearance to a regular tube, except that this is more elastic, and it will give your aquatic inhabitants more space to breed and swim around because this can be shaped into any size or form. You will hardly notice this.
The Marineland Flexible Bubble Wand works by expelling air from the bottom of your aquarium. This creates bubbles, which force dirt particles to adhere to them, and flow upward where they will be filtered by your skimmers.
The Marineland Flexible Bubble Wand also develops a healthy and constant water flow around your entire aquarium. This is quite beneficial for your aquatic inhabitants because they are assured of a good oxygenation when there is a continuous circulation. Plus, with regular use of this product, your fish will soon enjoy a home that is filled with the nutrient that they need.
With the Marineland Flexible Bubble Wand, you can save the trouble of buying a power head or a wave maker to assist your skimmers. This product can do their job better at a lower price.
