Cool Aquarium Products You May Not Know About, But Should! – VOLUME 1

Hello Folks, Robert from Marine Depot here
and thanks for watching. Keeping a fish tank definitely takes some
effort, especially if you want to create something that is worthy of discussion among your friends and family. Thankfully, here at Marine Depot we carry a huge variety
of products specifically designed to make your aquarium keeping experience just a bit
easier. We compiled a list of our favorite unique
and super helpful aquarium tools that you may not even know existed that will surely
make your life easier. Keeping your equipment in tip top shape is
important for the longevity of the product as well as the health of your tank. Having your pump fail or go out on you can
be a real pain especially if it happens at a time when driving to your local fish store
to pick up a replacement is not exactly an option. We recommend that you thoroughly inspect and
clean all the pumps running on your aquarium every 3 – 6 months. By doing this, you will remove calcium build
up that can shorten the total lifespan of a pump and even cause a failure. The Tunze Cleaning Set is a great little kit
that includes various tools that are specifically designed to help you clean your pumps. While the kit was made by Tunze specifically
for use on their Turbelle line of pumps, the tools are actually perfect for just about
any pump on the market. The kit includes various size bottle brushes
that are perfect for cleaning out little notches are crevices, some citric acid solution with
a spray bottle to help remove calcium build up, as well as a cleaning cloth to wipe down
your tank. The larger brushes can also be used to clean
out your skimmer neck and those hard to reach areas of your sump or filters. Feeding your fish is one of the more pleasurable
daily duties that come with keeping an aquarium. For many of us, feeding the tank may be the
only chance we get to observe and enjoy the tank on a regular basis. The Innovative Marine Gourmet Gadget Kit is
a set of three different feeding tools that help take the hassle out of feeding your tank,
no matter what type of fish you have to feed. The Gourmet Defroster is a magnetically mounted
frozen food dispenser that allows you to throw in a chunk of frozen food and adjust the rate
at which the food is dispensed from a central location. This helps you get food to all inhabitants
of your tank and keeps the food out of your filters. The device can also be used as a feeding ring
by simply removing the clear cylinders. The Gourmet Grinder is a very unique tool
that allows you to quickly and easily grind up and dispense flake or pellet food into
your aquarium without ever touching the food. The grinder holds a wide variety of flakes
or pellet and just push the button to grind up and dispense food. The little water level indicator tells you
how far to submerse the grinder which then dispenses the food underwater and prevents
the pellets from floating on the surface and going into your filters. Have you ever bought the wrong size pellets
for your fish? Well the gourmet grinder is the perfect solution
to make use of that food. Finally, the Gourmet Grazer which is a magnetically
mounted seaweed holder that secures seaweed inside your aquarium to allow your herbivorous
fish to naturally graze on the food throughout the day. You can then quickly and easily remove any
uneaten seaweed which will prevent nuisance algae as well as nutrient level spikes in the tank The Marine Depot Frag Cave is another cool
product that allows you to grow and mount corals in your tank without having to stare
at an industrial looking frag rack. Lets be honest, not all of us have the time
to keep a separate frag tank but that doesn’t mean we should miss out on the fun of trading
corals with our friends. The Frag cave is a fired ceramic cave that
looks like a natural rock. It is available in two sizes, one for up to
6 frags and one for up to 10 frags. Each frag plug can easily be removed and replaced. Once introducted into your tank, the cave
will provide and excellent habitat for your fish and inverts and will seamlessly blend
into the rest of your aquascape. A Coral Viewer is a simple device that has
been around for a long time but not all of us really understand that benefits of having
one at home. In fish stores, these devices are used to
get a clear top down view of corals for sale. They also offer a unique angle for photographing
your corals from the top down. The little acrylic chambers can also double
as a container for temporarily holding frags, defrosting frozen food, or even acclimating
new arrivals! The ability to integrate a wifi camera into your aquarium controller has been around for a few years. Up until now, we have not seen a submersible
version of these wifi cameras available at such an affordable price. The new Ice Cap Reef Cam is a submersible
wifi camera that allows you to view and monitor your tank directly form your smartphone or tablet. The camera hooks up to your home wifi network,
and you can then log in to the app and get a live view of your tank
from anywhere in the world! Not only is the useful to check up on our
tank when your are away, it also allows you to show off your
hard work to aquarium hobbyists everywhere. Be sure to check out the “New Items” section
of our website because Marine Depot is constantly bringing you guys the best aquarium gear we
can find. Did you know that we add anywhere from 3-5
new products per week to our website on average and this is why you will always find something
new here at MD. I do appreciate all of you for watching and until next time, Take care and happy reefkeeping!

  1. Great list, thanks for floating these nice products to the top. I will have to look more into the IM feeding tools and the IceCap cam.

  2. These are great items! Several of these I never thought about using, the Tunze cleaning Set and the Gourmet Gadget Collection are two that I will add to my future purchases. Actually, I will get these all but first things first. 🙂 Thanks for a great video!
