Silent Air B11 Aquarium Air Pump - Battery Operated - That Pet Place

The thing your tank needs the most is air. Your fish consume oxygen and produce carbon dioxide. Most of the oxygen enters the aquarium (and co2 leaves the aquarium) by gas exchange at the water surface. The excess co2 gasses off into the room and fresh oxygen enters the water. With good air exchange the aquarium reaches equilibrium with the levels in the air around the tank, and for the most part, doesn’t vary too much. Good air exchange is the result of good flow in the tank and agitation at the surface of the tank. When the power goes out, so does most of your gas exchange. This isn’t a huge issue for most aquariums if were talking about a short period of time, but the sooner you can get that water movement and surface agitation back up and running the better.
A battery powered air pump is one of the things that should be in everyone’s kit. They are inexpensive and can save you a boatload in the event of a power outage. At around the $20 range they are probably cheaper than any piece of livestock you have in your tank. They generally come in two different flavors, automatic and manual. With a manual battery powered air pump like the , you put batteries in the air pump and it starts pumping. The batteries are its only power source. Simply submerge the end of the airline tubing down in the tank and let it bubble. As the bubbles rise to the surface they will not only produce some movement of water in the tank but they will cause ripples on the water and agitate the surface of the water, promoting air exchange. Not only a life saver in the event of a power outage, but the is a great option for long rides home from the fish store or frag swap.
