Submersible Filters

A submersible filter is an aquarium internal filter, like a small power filter that sits inside the fish tank.

A submersible aquarium filter covers basic fish tank filtration and circulation needs for many non-sensitive fish. An internal fish tank filter has the advantage of not spilling or leaking water. An internal fish tank filter usually houses a filter cartridge or small chamber that holds a filter sponge or pad and activated carbon. Many submersible filters have adjustable flow to suit different environments.

Submersible filters make great turtle tank filters, a basic vivarium filter, or amphibian tank filter. A submersible filter can sit low in the water and is easy to maintain. However, it should be regularly cleaned, as the small internal filter can get dirty quick, especially as a turtle filter.
