When you own an aquarium, you probably feel like a plumber. How? Because a modern aquarium has many differing pieces of equipment that works harmoniously together for the whole system to remain healthy and in optimal shape. The most important equipment is the pump which moves oxygenated water around making sure your fish and plant life
is healthy. The next piece of important equipment is the aerator that pumps in oxygen thru your aquarium.
The larger your aquarium is, the more oxygen you need pumped in or aeration done. The third piece of equipment is the filter. The filter pumps water thru a membrane that has activated carbon or some sort of filtration media. It needs to do this to make sure that dissolved threats to your fishes' health - like ammonia and other harmful toxins - are taken out of the water. So there is this coordination between these three important pieces of equipment to keep your aquarium healthy. Since there is a lot of tubing involved, you would need a check valve.
