    This filter has a multi-stage filtration system that delivers mechanical, biological, and chemical aquarium filtration for an ideal environment for your fish.

    Promising review: "The Marineland penguin 350 is a great filter. I had originally got one for my 75 Gallon tank housing an Oscar. Oscars are very messy fish, especially during feeding. After a year, it is still performing wonderfully and keeping my water crystal clear, while also keeping ammonia and nitrite levels at zero." –Joel Gonzalez

    Price: $27.09

    3. A vitamin supplement for your freshwater fish that may enhance their colors, stimulate their appetite, and even promote increased growth. We love strong, healthy fish!

    The bottle of vitamin supplement

    Promising review: "I purchased a baby Oscar from a local chain pet store, and honestly she didn't look that good when I got her home. She was tiny, and weak, and I put her in an isolation tank to grow out. Within a few days of using this product the first time, she was eating well, stronger, and her colors were brighter. She is now a good 3 inches and almost ready for the 'big kid' tank." –B.R.

    Price: $40.37

    4. A Spongebob Squarepants house so you can start your very own Bikini Bottom world. Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Your goldfish, that's who.

    A reviewer's photo of their betta fish on the leaf hammock

    Promising review: "This Betta Hammock is the perfect addition to my betta's tank. Within the first day he was resting on it and even built his bubble nest right above it. I didn't even have to move it around, he instantly gravitated towards it. The leaf is sturdy enough that it does not bend down and soft enough that it does not have sharp edges." –Amazon customer

    Price: $6.76+ (available in four colors)

    6. A container of tropical fish food with shrimp flakes for maximum flavor. Bon appetít, little fishies!

    The container of fish food

    Promising review: "You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. This version doesn't break down or dissolve too quickly to be eaten by the fish and even stays intact long enough for my bottom feeders to get to it. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. Great price as well!!" –J. Pieper

    Price: $3.59+ (available in .42oz, 1oz, 2.2oz, and 7.06oz containers)

    7. An artificial plant that looks so real, your fish may actually think they're at the bottom of the ocean hiding from that other fish they keep seeing on the walls of the tank. "This fish looks just like me... it's weird."

    Promising review: "Will never use ugly waste trapping gravel again! Don't force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! This is perfect for fish to forage through, especially goldfish, and is really beautiful to look at. Did I mention this brand won’t annoyingly be sucked up by your syphon?" –Jennifer

    Price: $13.99 (available in a one or two pack)

    9. A container of food for your koi, ornamental goldfish, and other outdoor fish species. This food provides the nutrition your fish need for a long, healthy life and the floating sticks make it so easy for them to eat and digest.

    The fish food

    Promising review: "My fish, both large koi and a few small goldfish, love this food. After a few weeks my wife and I could easily see a difference in the brightness of their color....noticeably brighter. The sticks of food float and soften upon water. I highly recommend it to anyone needing food for their koi or goldfish." –Michael Turner

    Price: $2.37+ (available in seven sizes)

    10. A set of six glowing jellyfish to bring your tank to life at night. They float so freely and gracefully, guests might think you have a real jellyfish tank! I know you don't, but they don't need to know that.

    Promising review: "My betta loves it! He plays and snoozes beneath its mantle cap. He does carry a food pellet to it and attempts to "feed" it!

    Promising review: "This thing in my fish tank makes me ridiculously happy. It looks cool with the aquarium light on, but even cooler when the main light is off. I have both on separate timers, and keep the volcano on for several hours after the main tank lights shut off. I experienced NO issues with it. It is heavy, easy to install, and works like a champ. WAY cool!" –justdeb1107
