Aquarium Water Movement

By February 3, 2013

Follow me on:

Aquarium water movement is not often considered, but it should be. Anytime you are starting a new aquarium, part of the planning should be building in good water movement. Many problems that occur later on can be prevented by careful planning. Even if you have a well established aquarium, it's not a bad idea to review the water movement in the tank. Are there dead spots were debris is collecting? Have you noticed that water in some areas of the tank are noticeably warmer or cooler than other spots? If so, perhaps you need to consider increasing the water movement in your aquarium.
