Advantages and disadvantages of micro-filters for aquariums

Surely, aquarium players will not be unfamiliar with the word micro filter for aquariums. But the effectiveness and effects that it brings are not well known. To know the pros and cons of the micro filter for the aquarium, follow the article below.
1. What is a micro filter for fish calves?
Microbiological filter is a very magical filter for small aquariums. Like aquariums with guppies, bettas or aquariums. 
Microbiological filter is a filter that acts as a residence for microorganisms to help decompose organic substances in the water discharged by ornamental fish, making the water environment always clean, without fishy odors. help farmed fish grow and develop well.
2. Why make a home for microorganisms?
Because in fish farming tools or equipment such as plastic tanks, glass tanks... Most of these devices have flat surfaces. Makes micro-organisms unable to live. Leads to inability to reproduce.
Microorganisms are so small that they cannot be seen with the eye. So their houses are often filled with items with tiny holes. The honeycomb has burned, Filter porcelain, apricot porcelain, matrix stone, Filter cotton
Therefore, the microbial filter will use materials that create a home for microorganisms. The addition of oxygen creates a stream of water that pulls the food at the bottom closer to the microorganisms so that they work more efficiently.

+ Balance the microflora in the aquarium.
+ Suitable for small aquariums such as guppies, because this fish cannot withstand the force of strong water currents, so it cannot be used with a regular filter.
+ To help save electricity, you can use a small oxygen blower and still use it for 4-5 micro-filters.
+ Microbiological filter has a small capacity, so it is not effective for large fish tanks.
+ The suction is weak, so you can only suck up small fish feces like dust particles, but can't absorb heavier dirt.
Note: The problem of weak suction can be overcome by increasing the oxygen blower to generate more blowing force to create a stronger suction power as you want.
