Intake Strainers for Fish Aquariums

While caring for fish is a very fun and rewarding experience, not all aspects of maintaining a fish aquarium are obvious tasks like removing the water and adding clean water or using a water testing kit to check for bacteria and toxins. Cleaning and maintaining fish tanks must be done when you have fish for pets, and as you learn more and more about cleaning a fish aquarium, you’ll discover there are parts and supplies you never knew you even needed. You may think all you need is a tank some water, some fish, some food and some tank decorations and you’re all set. That is not the case. There are many little pieces of equipment you’ll need to keep your fish tank up and running smoothly to keep your fish alive and well. One piece of equipment you’ll need is what is called an “intake strainer,” which is available now right here on the Zen Pet Supplies website.

Intake strainers are designed to prevent debris from entering and clogging your fish tank’s system. We have a number of durable, high-quality intake strainers at affordable prices. They come in different shapes and sizes and they get the job done. Our intake strainers feature a low profile screen that’s molded of the highest impact-resistant PVC (polyvinyl chloride) eliminating the chance of finding hidden cracks when filling your aquarium with water. What makes the intake strainers we carry so popular is that their versatile, low profile screens simply press right into place. You don’t have to worry about your fish getting caught in or passing through the intake strainers in our current inventory because even though they are priced low, they are of the highest quality and you can rely on them to prevent debris from getting into your fish tank’s system and causing problems by clogging the system.
