It’s that time of the year when we take a look at what Filters, Heaters, Lighting and Fish Supplies have been popular with our readers over the last few months.

The following is a compilation of the most purchased items on Amazon – by the TFCG community.

Popular Aquarium Filters.

Suprisingly we see the Tetra Whisper Filters holding down spots 1, 3&4.

However Kollercraft Tom Mini Aquarium Filter is making a strong case for top spot in this category with sales between the two brands almost equally split between the two.

As expected we see entry level filters at the top of the list with the higher capacity filters lower down.

Popular Aquarium Heaters.

Hydor and Aquartop are by far the most popular brand of aquarium heater with 8 of the top 10 spots going to either Hydro or Aquatop. With The most common wattage being the 50W heater.

Popular Aquarium Thermometers.

With thermometers we didn’t really see a top brand and the total sales were roughly the same from brand to brand.

However, the popularity of digital thermometers seems to be rising. Brands like the [easyazon_link identifier=”B00GR0LKN8″ locale=”US” tag=”ryweightlos03-20″]HDE LCD Digital Fish Tank Aquarium Thermometer[/easyazon_link] saw a big jump.

[easyazon_image align=”right” height=”340″ identifier=”B0002568UE” locale=”US” src=”https://www.tropicalfishcareguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/41FXp7PMtRL.jpg” tag=”ryweightlos03-20″ width=”340″]When it comes to thermometers, it really boiled down to (no pun intended) preference for digital, floating (Pictured Right) or the good old sitck on the side of your tank (liquid crystal) thermometer.

Popular Aquarium Air Pumps.

As expected the Tetra brand ranked very high in this category.

Although Tetra has dropped down to second spot it is clear from past lists that the [easyazon_link identifier=”B0009YJ4N6″ locale=”US” tag=”ryweightlos03-20″]Tetra Whisper Air Pump[/easyazon_link] is by far the pump of choice by hobbyists.

[easyazon_image align=”right” height=”250″ identifier=”B008AZV7GI” locale=”US” src=”https://www.tropicalfishcareguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/410Oh1WzX7L.jpg” tag=”ryweightlos03-20″ width=”250″]Notable is the top spot going to the [easyazon_link identifier=”B008AZV7GI” locale=”US” tag=”ryweightlos03-20″]SunSun UV Submersible Pump[/easyazon_link] (Picuted right) which could really be in it’s own category for UV sterilizers.

However it did very well when compared to air pumps across all brands.
