The compressor is considered to be one of the most important fixtures for the aquarium. It is intended for saturation of water with oxygen. If you have an aquarium large volume, the device you need to install a powerful. If there are live plants, at night they need oxygen. The fact that all the air that they process carbon dioxide day required, due to the lack of reaction of photosynthesis.
Night significantly increases the level of carbon dioxide. The inhabitants of the aquarium require additional source of oxygen. The compressor is able to compensate for this loss. By visual inspection, it is a device that produces streams of bubbles rising from the bottom of the aquarium. The smaller the size of these bubbles, the more they give of oxygen the water. The compressor being in operation, significantly improves the circulation of water, thereby creating a uniform temperature distribution of water in the aquarium.
The choice of compressors is small. They are outdoor and built-in aquarium. The difference between them is almost there. It is just that integrated, publishes extraneous noise that is very suitable to a person who appreciates silence during sleep. However, it needs careful care, cleaning once a week and check the tightness of the joints. The outer compressor in such careful care is not needed. There are aeration devices and battery powered, they are designed to ensure that during transportation of Pets, do not leave them without oxygen. In General, the compressor can not be set, however, only if you are a professional aquarist. To achieve this rather easy. Indeed, in the aquarium, it is necessary to create all conditions for generating oxygen. You need to choose the right number of fish and plants, and then creates the right environment where everything is balanced.
The nebulizer compressor can best attach to the bottom of the aquarium or to the wall, but closer to the bottom, on a special suction Cup. Next, connect the oxygen hose to the gun. Then remove the air tube through technological hole in the aquarium to the compressor.
Install the compressor outside of the aquarium, according to the recommendations. Do it so that the water level was below the instrument. If you are not able to install the instrument properly, then check the compressor check valve. It prevents the ingress of water into the device. After all, if the compressor is installed below the water level in the aquarium, the liquid may enter the instrument, leading to its failure.
