It measures roughly 6.5 x 17.5 centimeters and weighs 5.2 ounces, making it great for tanks that hold up to 20 gallons of water.

If you’re a fish tank aficionado you are probably familiar with bubblers. They are a great way to get supplemental oxygen circulating, keeping your fish happy and healthy.

The built-in, color-changing LED lights will give your stream a beautiful glow that will have your fish dancing in no time.

We just couldn’t help it, we had to include this Spongebob Squarepants set. The novelty and nostalgia were too great to pass up.

Each item is made from durable resin that will hold up in fresh or saltwater tanks. The houses are roughly 6 inches tall while the revered restaurant measures 3.5 x 3.7 inches; great sizes for any small or medium-size tank. Your fish can explore in and around each structure while you reminisce about your favorite cartoon.
