  • Can my fish survive without filter?

Can my fish survive without filter?

Asked: David H. Pare, Last Updated:

The rule of thumb is that fish that live in ponds in the wild can survive without a filter, while fish from streams and rivers cannot because they need a current to generate enough oxygen. All non-air breathers will die in an unplanted tank as soon as available oxygen is used. This usually happens in a few hours.
