Regent Aquarium filters

If you are searching for a filter, Regent Aquarium filters come in a wide variety of different types, so that you can get the filtration you require, regardless of the size of the aquarium that you own. Before you purchase one of these filters, however, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.

First, Regent aquarium filters should only be used on aquariums without young fry in them. As these are power filters and Bio wheel filters, they are unacceptable for use in a tank where there are really small specimens that could be sucked up into the filter and killed.

If you own Regent aquarium filters with bio wheel capability, there is several things that you should know. First, you need to make certain that you have all of the parts required to make use of the bio wheel. In many cases, the Regent filters do not come with the bio wheel pre-installed. On account of this, you will need to purchase a bio wheel, the bracket and the two ball bearings required for most of the bio wheel set ups. However, some of these filters require more parts, or a different type of bio wheel in order to function properly. If you are wanting to add a bio wheel to your filter, you need to consult the manual to make certain that you have everything that you need.

Once you have your Regent aquarium filters installed and operating in your tank, there are several things that you will need to do in order to get the most benefit out of the filter. First, you will need to make certain that you are keeping up on your water changes. As your tank is not a natural environment, you need to make certain that you are removing all of the excess waste products from the tank on a weekly basis. Dependent on the species of fish present within your aquarium, it is possible that you may need to do water changes on a bi-weekly schedule. In addition to this, you will also need to clean the motor at least once a month, and take the care to rinse the filter media in old aquarium water.

If you do all of these things, your Regent aquarium filters should be able to handle all of your filtration needs within the aquarium, providing a good environment for your fish.
