Recirculating aquaculture systems are technically designed to provide recirculation for aquarium and fish tanks in order to maintain best environmental hygiene for the aquarium.
Recirculating aquaculture systems are best to be installed in large aquariums but they are expensive choice for small projects. They best work for the places with large set-ups Re-circulating system consists of a varied set of components that makes the plant work better and safe for use.
Building components involve following important things to be installed if there is a need to get a plant fit for recirculating.
A shed is properly built to accommodate the filter plant. It is necessary that there is a safe shed or building spot for the filtration plant. It will make the plant work in safe settings to provide a long lasting service.
A water pump is also required in order to get the water circulating and pumping into and out of the aquaculture. Water pumping is an essential part of the circulating system as it is a key to transfer the water from and to the aquatic situation.
A constant electric supply is essential for the plant to function properly and consistently. It is necessary to pump into waters and lighting needs for the plant. It is necessary that you have three phase electric supply for the aquaculture re-circulating system.
Emergency power supply
There is also a great need of an emergency power supply like a generator or an emergency power supply to keep the circulation ongoing without interruption.
Oxygen producing component
Providing a constant and optimum level of oxygen for the water is essential to keep fishes healthy in the aquarium.
Supplying only air is not sufficient because it may affect the oxygen level and lower its value from the required oxygen component of the water in the fish tank. In order to provide a healthy environment in the fish tank a constant supply of oxygen is provided along with the circulation of the water.
Mechanical filtration component
Another important part is the mechanical filtration plant that is installed within the plant. The mechanical filtration is installed in order to remove the waste products from the water and get the water clean and clear to help prevent clogging and deposition of waste products in the tank and keep the fish tank clean hygienically.
Biological filtration part
Biological filtration plant is used to remove the ammonia and nitrites from the water. It is because these components are poisonous and can harm fishes and result into problems related to that of fish health. Biological filtration plant helps nitrify the compounds into nitrates and clean up poisonous compounds.
A lighting part is also there to help maintain the day and night effects in the water tank to provide the aquatic environment a natural light cycle as it is present in natural habitat. The light in the aquatic culture is regulated through proper timings properly distributed to provide light for a predetermined period for giving the best environment to the water tank.
