Pet Fish Care : How Do I Get Rid of Bubbles in My Fish Tank?
Hi, I’m Hunter from the Austin Aqua-Dome.
There are a number of ways to get rid of unwanted bubbles in your fish tank. The most obvious
way would be to switch from an air powered filter to a electrical power filter. That
will run quietly and without putting any bubbles into the tank. Some bubbles will arise from
water that has become soiled by fish waste and dissolved food, this can cause a oily
scum at the top of the water and filter and bubbler’s will intensify this effect. In fresh
water, to solve this, you would want to do water changes or replace your filter cartridges.
In salt water, the same goes but there are other ways to remove the bubbles by using
special filters called protein skimmers, which will pull out the oils that lead to these
