Hi, this is Ashlee from Pet Planet in Riverton, Utah. I am here to show you how to set up a filter for your tank. One thing that you want to know is that your filter is most...your most vital part of your tank, especially if you're doing sensitive fish, like your sensitive tropical fish like neons or tetras. One thing that your filter does is it helps take up the water and filter out the debris and the bad bacteria that may be in your water, as well as hold good bacteria in your tank still to keep that balance of bacteria. Now, I'm going to show you how to put this filter together. This is your most basic filter for a 10 gallon. It will come with two parts like these. This is a magnet that helps the motor pull in the water. So as the motor goes, this pulls with the motor. First of all, you do want to put these pieces in to get the filter ready. So you're just going to want to slide it in right here. It goes in pretty easy. And then you just want to connect this filter bottom part to it. Now, when you do that, now you want to put this on the back part of your tank. So you want to make sure that this part of your filter is inside the tank. So you just basically stick it in there and you want to make sure that your cord is protected from any water leaks that could cause an electrical fire.
