• Guide water & plant care

    Introduction into a fascinating hobby

Your underwater paradise needs love, care and attention

For humans, air is the basic necessity for life – for fish, it is water. Since the engineer Gunther Eheim invented the aquarium suction filter fifty years ago, it has been possible to maintain this basic necessity in the aquarium to ensure exotic ornamental fish can not only survive, but thrive.

Clean, healthy and suitable water in the aquarium is largely dependent on the equipment. There are many biological and biochemical processes that play a part in the ecological cycle of an aquarium – including water care and plant care.

These processes, and their importance, are briefly summarised in this Guide.
