This master test kit is one of the must have top aquarium products for all fish keepers. You need to always test your water and know what is going on with the nitrogen cycle. How much ammonia you have how many nitrites and nitrates you have. Where is your PH at? All of these things you need to know about your aquariums and is really the first thing you should buy along with your aquarium even before buying live fish. You can tell if your aquarium is properly cycled before adding fish.
I will always highly recommend every fish keeper to have on hand a master test kit and fully know how to test your aquarium water but that being said, these test strips do a pretty good job and have proven to be pretty accurate as being another top aquarium products. The test strips have proven to be super convenient and quick which really helps if you have multiple tanks to monitor.
This is a great product to have on hand for adding water or when you are doing water changes. This definitely works really well and will keep your aquarium in top notch condition! Definitely one of our favorite top aquarium products!
Fritz Aquatics FritzZyme 7 Nitrifying Bacteria for Fresh Water Aquariums is what I use in my aquariums when starting off a new tank to give it a boost with cycling. I also will add a bit from time to time to give my already established aquariums a boost. This is a great product that I personally feel does help, is a good buy and belongs as another one of our favorite top aquarium products!
These breeder boxes are super neat for live fish and I use them all the time to separate fish in my aquariums or even when preparing orders and I need to fast the fish before shipment. These hang on breeder boxes allow you to separate fish or shrimp out of the main tank and still stay in the same water. Definitely one my highly used top aquarium products in the fish room! The water flows in by use of air on one side and trickles out on the other side keeping a constant flow of fresh tank water. You can separate fry or fish out into separate sections in the larger breeder boxes as well. They come in three sizes small, medium and large. I prefer to use the medium and large ones the most and find the smaller ones a bit small for me personally although they are still useful. These are awesome and I use them all the time!
Lee’s break resistant specimen container also known as a dip and pour is my go to item when catching live fish for orders. The container conveniently hangs on the side of your aquarium allowing you to have both hands free while chasing down that elusive pleco or other speedy fish. Although these containers are a bit expensive they are heavy duty and made to last so you will definitely get your use out of them. Definitely one of my favorite and go to top aquarium products! These are a great buy and I own both medium and larger ones both are used regularly. I prefer the larger ones but you really can’t go wrong with either size!
This little tool is by far the most worthwhile device I think I’ve used yet. Not only does the Mag-float come in different sizes but also comes in glass or acrylic models that you can add a scraper onto. When the cleaner inside the tank becomes separated from the glass it just floats to the surface for easy capture! The mag-float works amazingly well and everyone with an aquarium should have one of these, I put it in my must have category of top aquarium products and it’s definitely worth the money!
This glass and acrylic cleaner has no ammonia in it like many other glass cleaners so it will be safe for use to clean up your aquariums and keep them looking beautiful. This stuff works well and I highly recommend it as another favorite of our top aquarium products !
The Python clean and fill system is a total game changer. Super easy to hook up to your sink and is the best when it comes to water changes and filling up your aquariums. This is a must have and is highly recommended!
This is the smaller siphon only set up that is perfect for smaller aquariums and spot cleaning. I use this with 5 gallon bucket you can get at Home Depot. The mini size is best for nano tanks and won’t really work for larger aquariums. Luckily it comes in different sizes so choose the size that will work best for your set up. The squeeze bulb works well to get the siphon going which is also highly recommended.
This is the perfect tool to get your symphony started while using the Python gravel vac. Definitely a must have because who really likes sucking on a hose and getting aquarium water in your mouth?
The Fluval E Electronic Heater is a great heater and of high quality. The heater comes in different wattage depending on the size of your aquarium snd has a digital read out for temperature. I have had no issues at all with this heater and it keeps my tank at the perfect temperature for my leopard frog plecos which require a higher temperature in the 80’s. It stays consistent all the time. I think these heaters are high quality and do a great job another great choice and belongs with other top aquarium products.
These Tetra Whisper air pumps work great and are really quiet. I have multiple of these pumps in different sizes and have had no issues with them so far. For the price these are totally awesome pumps. Just get the air pump size for what you need and aquarium size and you will be good to go!
This air pump really is a work horse, I use this one to run multiple aquariums with no problem at all. Not only is this air pump fairly quiet, it also puts out a lot of air. If you need something with some decent air flow that can handle deep aquariums or running multiple aquariums or air accessories then go with this. This would be the biggest air pump I would invest in before getting a linear piston air pump. If you have just one aquarium or need less air flow go with a smaller pump. This is a great buy for the price!
The Finnex Stingray is an all around awesome light for growing most low to medium light plants and is a great bang for the buck led light. It comes in a lot of different size options including a clip on light. (If looking for a clip on light I would recommend the finnex sting ray 2 due to having more power and the moonlight setting.) This Stingray is a low profile great looking light that I use in most of my aquariums because it is economical, looks good and gets the job done. I highly recommend this light.
This is the clip light version of the Finnex Fugeray planted plus light and includes a moonlight setting. I own a few of these and they work great and grow plants very well. I have also used it on thecMarinelsnd 5 gallon portrait aquarium to upgrade the lighting on it. This is great little light that I highly recommend!
This is the newer more advanced model of the Finnex StingRay light. It is more costly but also way more powerful and comes with a brilliant moonlight setting. I have a few of the clip light versions of these lights and they work awesome on nano tanks like the Marineland 5 gallon portrait or even just the Aqueon 10 gallon tanks. These are great light and a good in between if you are not ready to step up to a more expensive light.
This is the Cadillac of aquarium plant lights, yes there are more powerful lights for different applications but this Fluval Plant Spectrum 3.0 has a ton of lighting features as well as control through Bluetooth. if you want a serious light that is a bit more expensive packed full of features that’s high quality, this is your light! Comes in various different sizes so pick out the one perfect for your aquarium. I love these lights for in my home and showing off my main aquariums not in the fish room.
