If your fish are suffering from new tank syndrome, and the only filter on your aquarium is an external 'power' filter which uses cartridges, we recommend considering a second filter for backup filtration now, and in the future, when your aquarium may be more heavily stocked. An air-driven sponge filter is a very economical choice.

Battery powered pumps come in handy. We lost power for a day and didn't lose any fish, fresh or salt, without having a generator. Battery powered pumps run on 2 D-cell batteries. Electric pumps require 110 (120).

Undergravel filter assembly diagram from Keeping Murphy Out of Your Aquarium Copyright 1997, All Rights Reserved.

What comes with an undergravel filter? The filter plate, lift tubes, the connectors that mount lift tubes to the plate, air line and/or a hard air tube, (enough to get from tank bottom to gang or T valve), air stones and carbon cartridges.
Why are these all Economy undergravel filter plates? The more expensive plates often have fewer slots for water to flow through. I have found that they do not filter as effectively in my heavily stocked tanks, and low levels of nitrite followed water changes, regardless of gravel size. I added power filters to supplement them initially, but have been converting my tanks back to the Economy plates found on this page.

For Fishless Cycling of your freshwater or marine aquarium.

Everything Fishy only carries one brand of cycling product, but we no longer try to ship it often. Order direct from Fritz unless you must have it shipped via postal service. (yes we can get it to Hawaii cheaper and fresher) - because it is the most reliable, and has been consistently effective for the ten years we've been using them in our customer tanks, without problems or bad batches. Ask your public aquarium whose culture they use when they set up a new tank - no matter how large. I am confident they will answer Fritz.

This study and my research agree. Fritz-Zyme naturally processes ammonia and nitrites with real nitrosomonas and nitrobacter bacteria that multiply in your tank. Other products contain heterotrophic bacteria or enzymes, and recommend that you add them once a week, so the enzymes that DON'T multiply can process the ammonia and nitrites, and starve your bio-filter. Use on new tanks, cycling tanks, and when medication damages your biological filter. 6 month maximum shelf life makes these products unavailable in large chain stores. Fritz-Zyme 9 for Saltwater contains nitrococcus bacteria, compare to the label on competing brands. Other sizes available.
Compare to $9.00 for 16 oz of products containing enzymes and millions of heterotrophic bacteria, that do not form a healthy biological filter. There is NO comparable product. (and major university studies agree.)

Filter cartridges are found on the page at Media.html. They are added to our inventory via email requests. You ask for it, we order it. We can get a cartridge for almost any filter made.

Monthly maintenance on your freshwater tank, or bi-weekly maintenance on your marine tank, will help to keep it, and your fish, healthy and attractive. We accept special orders for supplies and equipment. If they pass our testing standards, we will stock them on a regular basis.
