6 great gifts for any aquarium owner

With the holidays just around the corner, ’tis the season for shopping. Gifts for aquarium owners aren’t available just anywhere, though, so you might have to do some searching to find the perfect present. Even the experienced aquarium connoisseur will be impressed by some of your sleuthy online finds, and we’re here to help you find them. Here are six fin-tastic ideas to help get you inspired.

FL!PPER DeepSee Aquarium Magnifier Magnetic Viewer

If you know an aquarium owner who loves to show off their fish, you can’t go wrong with the FL!PPER DeepSee Aquarium Magnifier Magnetic Viewer. Ideal for fish photography, this small tool easily attaches to any aquarium for hands-free magnified viewing of the goings-on inside. It’s safe for use on glass or acrylic tanks. Watching fish just got even more exciting, now that you can watch closely.

MingDak Fish Aquarium Light

Many aquarium owners already use lights to decorate their tanks, but lights like these make a great gift you won’t find in many other places. The MingDak Fish Aquarium Light is a remote-controlled LED strip that’s safe to mount underwater, so your fish won’t be bothered by the light. The included remote lets you change the color of the lights for endless mood combinations.

Lychee Aquarium Automatic Fish Feeder

Help your fish-loving friend relax this holiday season with the app-connected Lychee Aquarium Automatic Fish Feeder. Your friend can fill the feeder and forget, thanks to an adjustable timer that feeds fish right on schedule, whether it be hourly, daily, or weekly. All they’ll need to get started is a smartphone to download the app and knowledge of the right feeding schedule for their fish.

Back to the Roots Water Garden

For the aquarium owner who has everything, a self-cleaning, food-growing tank will surprise and impress them. The Back to the Roots Water Garden is a “mini aquaponic ecosystem” that supports life both above and below the water. The tank stays clean thanks to the filtering qualities of the plants (choose your favorite houseplant or succulent), while fish waste fertilizes the growing greens.

Not only does your fish get a new place to explore, but you get to watch your plants come to life, too.

Aqueon Algae Cleaning Magnet

Every aquarium keeper will have to deal with algae at some point, and regular scrapers just don’t cut it. Corners, nooks, and crannies are hard to reach, and, even though heavy-duty scrapers are available, you might have to get your hands wet to clean the tank. Aqueon has developed the latest in algae-cleaning technology, which uses magnets to wipe away algae even in tricky places. You hands can stay dry, and thanks to the magnet, the scrubber is easy to retrieve after each use.

Penn-Plax Castle Aquarium Decor

When in doubt, aquarium decor is never the wrong way to go when gift giving. This Penn-Plax Castle Aquarium Decoration is a hand-painted resin playground for fish that gives them places to frolic and hide. It can be set alongside other Penn-Plax pieces to create an entire underwater kingdom — the gift just keeps on giving! The detailed design of the castle makes it a beautiful accent for any home tank, so you know you’re giving a gift that your friend or family (or fish!) will appreciate.

Decking out an aquarium for the holiday season is a great way to spread the cheer, even for fish. Any aquarium owner is sure to love the unique gifts on this list, almost as much as their aquatic buddies will. Happy shopping!

Amazon is back with another series of Prime Day offers, but this time the focus is on holiday deals and it's called the Prime Early Access Sale. There are a plethora of brands and sellers offering discounts, and it's a great time to jump on anything you need before the major holiday sales kick off. But listen up pet owners! If any of you have been waiting around for a great deal on a smart vacuum, particularly one that allows you "set it and forget it," well, now's the perfect opportunity! Roborock's S7+ smart robot vacuum with the auto-empty dock is part of the main event, which means it's on sale for an incredible price.

From October 11 to October 15, you can grab the S7+ for 28% off. Normally $950, the price is now $680, which nets you a cool savings of about $270. If you're not familiar with Roborock's excellent smart vacuum, it's both a mop -- with Sonic Mopping Technology -- and a vacuum that can clean for up to 180 minutes per charge. More importantly, it comes with the auto-empty dock that allows the vacuum to continue cleaning, hands-free, for up to 60 days before the dock's dustbin and bag need to be emptied. That's a long time and a lot of personal hours saved right there. Check out the deal yourself below, or keep reading to learn a little more about the S7+ robot vacuum and dock.

Don’t let a lack of time keep you from having a clean home

Admittedly, it's difficult to clean and avoid compromise when you have a beloved pooch or cat wandering around. Having a furry member of the family is fantastic but it does add to your cleaning routine. They're naturally messy, whether it's that time of year where they're shedding fur or they've just rushed through a muddy area outdoors they really shouldn't have, a clean home can be a challenge. The same is true if you have kids, as they also have a penchant for messes. If you skip cleaning one day, you'll have more to clean another day. Moreover, you can only kick that can down the road so much before you're living in filth and squalor.

Fortunately, there's an answer, and a convenient one at that. With the Roborock S7 Max Ultra patrolling your home, there's truly no reason why you need to compromise. It's designed to help you keep your home clean, your pets happy, and your time still your own. It's an incredibly convenient robot vacuum that will save you time and effort not only by keeping the house clean automatically, but also because it leverages several smart features -- like self-cleaning or self-emptying for the dustbin. We're seriously impressed and we're excited to tell you all about it.

No compromise: Saving you time and effort
These days, there's no shortage of robot vacuums. Sure, a cheap and small robot vacuum will help a little when it comes to cleaning up dander and allergens, but you're almost certainly going to spend more time than you'd like cleaning up brushes on the device or simply having to order it around. That's before you even consider how well it cleans. If that cheap vacuum does a poor or ineffective job, well, guess what? You'll still be doing a pass or two around your home with a broom or mop.
