    7. A hollow tree trunk habitat if you're going for more of a natural, rustic vibe in your fish's aquarium. The wide holes in the tree trunk provide ample room for your small fish to swim through.

    8. A water conditioner to use when you're setting up your aquarium or changing the water because it makes tap water fresh by detoxifying heavy metals and removing chlorine and chloramines. It also repairs your fish's protective coat that could get damaged from handling or fish fighting.
