Filtration is a very important process for any aquarium system. A filter system ensures that dangerous toxins don`t accumulate in the water to prevent health risks for your fish life
. In a natural world, there are no mechanical filters or devices. It uses biological filters. Indigested food, decaying fish/plant life or fish excrement all accumulate in the water. However, they get attacked by bacteria which break downs the harmful ammonia and other harmful chemicals into less harmful but useful compounds.
This chemical compounds are then absorbed by plants as fertilizers. Plants are eaten by fish and it starts the whole process again. In the natural world, it is clean, seamless and integrated. The cycles of life and death are interwoven. There`s no need for mechanical filtration system.
