As we approach the end of the year we’d like to draw a spotlight on the benefits of using aquaria kits can be so beneficial to your aquarium and lifestyle. There are many reasons to look into buying a kit to facilitate your aquarium needs but here are the top 4:
1. Save Money
If there is one main benefit of utilising our kits, especially in these difficult financial times, it’s cost efficiency! Many of our kits give you the ability to culture your own zooplankton and phytoplankton. Once these cultures are up and running, you will never have to purchase these products individually again. As a result, you will end up saving lots of money in the long term. Our most popular product for culturing zooplankton including; rotifers, copepods, and daphnia is the Home Culture System. Our most popular product for culturing phytoplankton is the Marine Algae Culture Starter Kit and Freshwater Algae Culture Starter Kit.
2. Save Time
Some of our other kits including the; Acclimation Drip Kit, Auto Top-Off Kit and Drip Feed Kit have the ability to save you time in daily life. They take the tedious parts of the aquarium hobby and leave the fun parts for you! These kits also ensure that while you are away from the aquarium, things will be taken care of. For example, the Auto Top-Off Kit is perfect for Tropical Aquariums that evaporate over time. Instead of setting reminders to add water, the kit will automatically refill water to the perfect level.
3. Build Aquaria Skills
By engaging in a kit, you automatically create an opportunity to build your aquaria knowledge and skill set. Our kits make it fun and easy to do this. The variety of Brine Shrimp Hatching Kits we have available is the perfect example of this, it’s a great way to understand how brine shrimp hatch, while also providing an abundant food source for your tank.
4. A Fun Way for Kids to Learn
This year we launched our first kids hatching kits. These kits have been a huge success with kids all over Australia and even internationally. Daphnia kits are great for all kids, especially younger kids as they are easier to hatch. Triops kits are best for older kids looking for a challenge, as they usually need to be dehydrated and rehydrated 2-4 times to see them hatch! The wait is well worth it as you will witness a tiny dinosaur species come to life in front of your eyes. You can find out more about the Triops hatching Kit here and the Daphnia hatching kit here.
