It’s that time of the year when I take a look at the best aquarium equipment as voted by the TFCG readers over the last few months.

Everyday readers of this blog purchase Filters, Heaters, Lighting, and Fish Supplies so I decided to go through everything purchased over the past year and put together on a huge list of the most popular freshwater aquarium equipment.

The below products are not necessarily my favorite recommendations however they are the most popular. Whenever possible I have provided some links to a few of my product review articles for additional information.

Top 3 Most Purchased Pieces Of Aquarium Equipment This Year

Before we get into the big list there were three items that were purchased far more than any of the other items on this list they were;

  1. The AquaClear – Fish Tank Filter
  2. MarineLand 5 Gallon Portrait Glass LED Aquarium Kit
  3. Marina Betta Submersible Heater

I personally love the AquaClear Filter and use it on most of my tanks and I love it. You can see it here on my 10 gallon planted tank. So it’s no surprise to see it as the number one piece of aquarium equipment.
