Aquarium and Fish Tank Supplies
The essential aquarium products for your fish tank
One of the most important aquarium products for any fish tank is a good filter. A filter will help to keep the water clean and healthy for your fish. It's important to choose a filter that is appropriate for the size of your aquarium.
A water pump circulates the water in your tank, which both helps keep it oxygenated and helps manage ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels that can become more dangerous for your fish in areas of poor circulation. Most pet fish can only last 2 days without a water pump. Live aquarium plants and an air pump can also help if your fish still need extra oxygen, but they shouldn't replace a water pump.
Tropical fish species such as guppies, mollies, cory catfishes, clownfish or neon tetra, that live in warm waters should have an air pump, as oxygen evaporates faster in warmer temperatures.
If you're keeping tropical fish or cichlids, you'll need to invest in some heating equipment, as part of your fish tank supplies. Tropical fish need warm water to thrive, so it's important to choose an aquarium heater that is appropriate for the size of your tank.
Of course, you'll also need to buy food for your fish! There are a variety of different types of fish food available on the market from flakes to pellets and even snails. Most are labelled by coldwater, tropical water fish or specific species when you're shopping for aquarium supplies in Australia. Click on the product to learn more.
