A challenge you face as an aquarium
owner is consistently keeping the water clean and healthy for your fish. If you neglect that task, a film of protein will form on the water surface, blocking off vital light and fresh oxygen from reaching the fish. You'll end up with not just a dirty tank but also sick -- or worse, dead - pets and underwater plants.
But when you're a busy person, keeping your aquarium clean at all times takes a lot of work and eats a chunk of your time. Or does it? Not when you have the right tool like the Eheim Surface Extractor from Pet Store
! It removes the stubborn layer of protein off the water surface, improving the flow of oxygen and light into the aquarium. All you need to do is install it in your tank and watch it take care of that unsightly (and unhealthy) film of oil floating on top of the water.
How does it work? Water in the tank enters the Eheim Surface Extractor through the floating intake that lies just below the surface. Then, the extractor's built-in strainer cleans the water. It's a great addition to your current filter system, and at less than $50, it's surely a bargain!
It skims off the protein layer which forms on the water surface, improving oxygen exchange.
