What is a filter carbon for a fish tank?
A filter carbon for a fish tank is to help the fish breath and it clean left over from the fish. Hope it helps
Yes you do need a filter in your fish tank ifyou don't the tank will build up dirt and the fish will die. Also when you get a fish tank you need to clean it out then fill it with water then put the filter in and wait 24 hours. This helps to ensure that the tank is somewhat stable before adding fish.
That depends on the filter, but in general you can. Most tank filters are simply designed to remove debris suspended in the water. Many have activated carbon as well to absorb smaller impurities that would not be trapped in any filter. Some filters are designed for salter fish or for reef tanks. However, a freshwater filter will work, but it may not be the best filter for the tank.
What do you do if your fish tank really stinks and why does it... ive had the tank set up for about a week with fish in it i know it probably has something to do with cycling the tank...?
Should you get a new filter for your fish tank or will they be ok if you just change the water regularly?
A carbon filter is a good idea in any fish tank as it helps to keep the water oxygenated for the fish. You can get one at any pet store which sells aquarium supplies. An example of a store that may be found in many cities is Tisol. They generally carry a good supply of all aquarium products including carbon filters.
Betta fish will not be harmed if they are in a filtered tank. If the new tank is about the same size as the old tank you should use the old water or most of it in the new tank. If the new tank is larger so you have to add lots of new water then you should fill the new tank with the new water and let it sit (preferably with the filter running)…
