Not so long ago the small aquarium market was dominated by the glass goldfish bowl
. Fortunately for fish lovers, small aquarium products are now available that combine all the great features previously available in larger systems. Here are my favorite packages.
Small, but not too small for a school of fish, the Eclipse 12 partners bio-wheel filtration with a lighting unit, for an all in one package that is hard to beat. Set up is simple, and maintenance is a breeze due to the top loading design of the filter.
The compact eleven by fourteen inch footprint of this aquarium makes it a great gift
for a college student in an apartment or dorm. Don't be fooled by the small size, it features the same great combination of the Marineland bio-wheel and lighting as the larger models.
Composed of easy to clean glass, the classic 10 gallon Leader is still the industry standard for small aquariums
. A variety of hoods, filters, and other accessories can be packaged with it to create a unit that suits the unique needs of any owner.
The tiny two gallon Explorer is the best alternative yet for the traditional goldfish bowl. No other aquarium this size contains a filtration system that is comparable. Suitable for small coldwater
fish, it is available in a variety of colors.
One of the new kids on the block is the All-Glass Mini-Bow. Available in several bright colors, kids will love this little tank, and parents will love the price. Comes with a packet of water conditioner as well as mini-packet of fish food.
