The order of installation of filter media
a. The first compartment (A) useful coarse cotton filter media to trap / catch coarse particles derived from aquarium water. In the area meant that yellow is the installation of glass mica which has been hollowed out.
b. The second compartment (B) bioball media as a medium for growing bacteria. Mucus inherent in bioball is nitrobacter who grow useful to improve water quality. Bioball made to filter wet and dry by its creator, made lighter and floats in water and is used in large quantities.
c. The third compartment (C) Zeolite media useful for capturing dissolved materials, such as: gas, dissolved organic matter, and the like. This compartment is a compartment of the longest to get water that pass through the media zeolites have sufficient time span. Magnitude size (size) of zeolite which is preferably used in the form of small granules. The smaller the grain will be more extensive surface area so it will be more extensive contact area between water and zeolite, effectiveness is achieved
d. The fourth compartment (D) activated carbon media works the same principle with the zeolite that is useful for capturing dissolved materials, such as: gas, dissolved organic matter, and the like. Similarly, the size of activated carbon (AC), use the smallest grain grain only.
Oxygen solubility management.
Dissolved oxygen is a key water quality parameters at a magnification of shrimp in ponds. Tiger shrimp habit is to have activity at the bottom of the water. Dissolved oxygen especially on the pond bottom water of not less than 4 ppm. Fluctuations in dissolved oxygen content is determined the density of the organisms in the water, especially phytoplankton and other aquatic plants that are primary producers. To keep the dissolved oxygen remains in optimum condition is to memanfaatan process of photosynthesis, the use of aeration by way of setting the waterwheel.
Waterwheel is required for:
1. Supply of O2 in water
2. Oxidizing base surface
3. Creating and oxidized dirt suspended in the water column
4. Set the water flow and determine the buildup of organic sludge
5. Eliminate coating of water by temperature and salinity and dissolved oxygen homogenize
