Strainers or filters are important for the well-being of your fishbowl. They continue the nitrogen cycle working and assist to maintain your tank residents fit. Filter media is everything embedded in a filter that alters the quality of water flowing through it. There is variation in media presented, certain species can be selected to make a beautiful space in your aquarium.
