For aquarium hobbyists or budding reef keepers, a healthy tank starts with water movement. And that’s where the Maxi-Jet comes in.
A life form such as coral must have water circulation. The flow of water brings food to the coral as well as removes the coral’s waste. For aquarists wishing to reef build, water movement is necessary for coral reproduction.
In freshwater tanks, many species of fish like moving water, as flowing streams are their natural habitat. To replicate this in an enclosed tank environment, water must be pumped to mimic their natural environment and increase oxygenation.
With its 3-in-1 design, the Maxi-Jet offers a circulation pump, a power head and a utility pump. The motor is encased, so the Maxi-Jet can be fully submerged if needed.
For maximum value, the Maxi-Jet is essential for setting up and maintaining healthy freshwater or marine ecosystems.
Maxi-Jet water pump is an important addition to a freshwater or saltwater
aquarium tank. Here’s why.
Movement and Circulation
their own natural environment, fish and coral require water movement. Corals
are semi-stationary as they mature. Therefore, corals require turbulence in the
water to transport food to them as well as to remove their waste.
kinds of fish have flowing streams as a native habitat. Water movement provided
by a pump simulates a current in which they can swim.
Benefits of a Water Pump
Water Temperature. Warm water tends to float to the surface while cold water remains near the
bottom. The movement of water results in an even, steady temperature throughout
Cleaner Aquarium. Water movement helps prevent the build-up of algae, which tend to proliferate
in stagnant water. Additionally, if the pump is directed at the aquarium
floor’s gravel, debris such as uneaten food is lifted and can be filtered out.
Aeration. When the power head is
directed towards the surface, the movement of water increases the incorporation
of oxygen in the aquarium, which tank inhabitants will appreciate.
for a wide range of applications, such as circulation pump,
power head and utility pump (all parts included), a Maxi-Jet provides maximum
versatility for budding fish tank hobbyists or more experienced aquarists.
