Because many mechanical filters require an air pump to operate, you may also need to think about pumps along with the previously mentioned freshwater aquarium equipment. Like other components, air pumps also come in several models and sizes. Air stones and power head pumps, for example, help aerate and keep oxygen levels up. A good rule of thumb is to always base the equipment you are procuring on the size of your tank.
A fourth essential component is the substrate. You might think substrates are simply decorative elements in an aquarium system but they are actually also essential to a healthy environment. They can impact the chemistry and filtration of the water as well as the well being of all the life in the aquarium. Two to three inches of gravel at the bottom of the tank would work wonders in a freshwater aquarium.
