Because aquarium water gets dirty fast with protein, algae, waste, etc., frequent water changes and regular clean-ups are not enough. You need to put a filter system
in place to make sure that the water remains clean even when you're away at work during the day and asleep on your bed at night.
A great filter you can use is the Nu-Clear 530 Canister Filter 25 Micron Mechanical Filter from Pet Store
, which you can use for personal or commercial purposes. It can also work well with other filters, in case you feel that your aquarium needs more than one filtering system.
It filters out floating particles in the aquarium for as long as it's turned on, so you can feel secure in the knowledge that your tank is kept clean even when you're not around.
The Nu-Clear 530 Canister Filter 25 Micron Mechanical Filter has a body made of sturdy PVC and a lid clamp made of stainless steel. The clamp stops any leaks from happening, so that any filtered dirt remains secure within the canister and will not return to the aquarium in any way.
This filter is known to last for a long time because of its durability, but Nu-Clear still offers a two-year warranty for your additional peace of mind.
