Sponge Filters & power filters

Filters play a very important part in not only keeping your aquarium clean but they also provide oxygen to the water. There are several different types of filters to chose from.

Sponge filters are the most popular amongst hobbyist who keep shrimp and raise fry due to them being the safest. Sponge filters also provide a food source for shrimp. 

Other power filters such as the hang on back filters are also a popular choice over all and can be used for shrimp but you will need to use a pre filter sponge on the intake to keep the shrimp, especially baby shrimp from being sucked up into the filter.
