Aquarium Oxygen Reactors

Oxygen in an aquarium is the key to a successful and vibrant array of fish and plant life. You may not be able to see it, but it is one of the most important parts of maintaining the life inside of your aquarium. Without adequate oxygen supplies, your aquarium is bound to run into problems that could result in loss of fish life and plant life. That is why reliable aquarium oxygen reactors for your fish tank is vital. 

Importance of Oxygen in an Aquarium

The purpose of an aquarium oxygen reactor is to deliver oxygen to your aquarium while preventing water from splashing into the light or out of the nano aquarium. Shrimp or fish whose natural habitat is in naturally flowing water, need that flow to be recreated when their new home is in a nano aquarium. The VIV oxygen reactors are designed with an emphasis on functional beauty, where each VIV glass piece is handmade in China by skilled glass workers. The pieces are formed from crystal clear borosilicate glass, the same material used to make high end lab equipment. Japanese glass craftsmen carefully hand finish each VIV part to the highest standards with smooth edges and attention to the smallest details.

In addition to adding an aquarium oxygen reactor, there are other symptoms of low oxygen to look for and fix to help keep your aquarium as healthy as possible. Some issues that can lead to low oxygen levels are overcrowding of inhabitants, high water temperature, stagnant water, free-floating waste buildup, low light for live plants, and using chemicals that are not ideal for your aquarium. It is important to create an oxygen flow in your aquarium because stagnant water can create lower oxygen levels, resulting in fish distress. Accompanying a good oxygen flow system with a good filtration system can create a healthy aquarium.

Oto catfish, dwarf rasboras, ember tetras, ghost shrimp, Amano shrimp, bamboo shrimp, and red cherry shrimp are all different species of fish and shrimp that would benefit from a nano aquarium with aquarium oxygen reactors. Since the VIV oxygen reactor requires an air pump to operate, the air pump pushes oxygen into the aquarium while keeping it from splashing out of the rimless tanks or splashing water into the light. The VIV oxygen reactor attaches to the aquarium glass wall with two suction cups that come with the reactor. There is also an air stone attached, which gradually diffuses the air into the tank. We offer different options of tubing and air pumps to accompany your aquarium oxygen reactor, creating the best option for your aquarium.
