Filters are a major integral part of any aquarium or pond system. All filters do two things, firstly they remove particle debris from the aquarium or pond and secondly once matured they have a biological action, which naturally breaks down fish waste. There are many materials and techniques involved in filter designs, the first is the very simple air driven sponge units, these are very effective in small aquaria, especially for the aquarist that likes to breed his or her fishes, where the matured sponge filter will provide the ideal dining table for small fry. Similarly the internal air driven Box filter is a very efficient method of keeping the water in small aquaria clean and clear. Moving up the scale the next filter type is the internal power filter, these have built in electric pumps to draw the aquarium water through the filtering material. These have the advantage over air driven filters in that they draw a greater volume of water through the filtering material. The ultimate and most sophisticated are the external canister filters; these come in a range of sizes and output to suit just about any application. Here at Midland Waterlife we aim to provide a full and comprehensive range of filters, accessories, spare parts and consumables, to ensure that your tropical fresh water, tropical marine or for your outside pond systems are fully maintained.

Tropical fish aquarium
Many of today’s aquarium manufacturers produce a wide range of aquariums, which are suitable to house both fresh water and salt water fishes, but because of the tremendous amount of competition between manufacturers, it is therefore you the customer that ultimately benefits in both price and value for money. Even the smallest aquaria come complete with a filter, hood and lighting and with larger set-ups the whole package can consist of the aquarium, the stand or cabinet it sits on, external canister filter, heater and lighting. Basically the only thing left to add is water substrate and fishes. We have a fairly large aquarium display area where we show a wide range of designs and styles, including fully matured demonstration models to show what can be achieved in the confines of an aquarium and our staff are full qualified to advise on all aspects of keeping and setting up tropical aquariums.

Or may be you would like to add a touch of glamour and install a set of submersible lights to highlight the pond on warm summer night.
