Growing preference for technology-integrated products

Aquarists and hobbyists are using technological advancements, whereby
equipment used for recreating aquariums is becoming smaller, more
efficient, and smarter. This is also, making it easy to maintain and
clean the aquarium. Aquariums are being designed to be compact and are
designed to house corals and delicate reef vertebrates.

Life-supporting equipment such as filtration systems and lights are
integrated into the aquarium tanks or in the hood of the aquarium. This
provides reliable performance without compromising on the aesthetic
value of the aquarium. Auxiliary devices help in maintaining ideal water
parameters. These devices are also designed to be compact and small,
which is ideal for smaller aquariums.

Energy efficient aquarium accessories are being designed to offer
maintenance-free performance for aquarists and hobbyists. For instance,
light fixtures use integrated low-wattage LEDs,
light fixtures with high output rely on energy-efficient electronic
ballasts, and titanium heat exchange coils are used in aquarium chillers.

New programmable, smart devices are being used within the aquarium
equipment. For instance, electronic submersible heaters are used, which
help in maintaining accurate water temperature by sampling aquarium
water temperature. Programmable digital feeders and canister filter
capable of self-diagnosis are some of the aquarium products available in
the market. Smart
such as aquarium control systems help hobbyist to
control other high-tech devices and help them manage pH, conductivity,
dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential parameters, and lighting
simultaneously. “High-end models can be connected to the local network
so that an individual can view and modify the current controller
programs from any Internet-enabled computer,” says Arushi.

Rise of aquascaping

The aquarium market is experiencing a trend of re-creating tanks based
on various themes and backgrounds, where coral reefs, big rocks, plants,
and exotic fish are used to decorate the aquarium so as to fabricate an
underwater world in one’s home. The aquarium is refashioned into a
desert scene in water using large rocks, soil, and fish. They are also
creating aquariums with wood and low lighting. The trend is mainly
developing in Japan and Indonesia.

With the increase in the trend of aquascaping, the demand for aquarium
accessories is expected to increase during the forecast period.
Aquascaping contests are also being organized by various associations to
encourage beginners and experienced hobbyists to display their
creations. For instance, Aquatic Gardeners Association organizes
aquascaping contest every year. ISTA International Aquascaping Contest
conducted in Taiwan also promotes aquascaping by encouraging hobbyists
in Taiwan and around the world.

Innovations in decor items

The demand for different and innovative aquarium accessories is
increasing as most of the aquarium purchases are done to suit personal
aesthetic preferences. Underwater lighting using LED bulbs is one of the
popular innovative aquarium accessory available in the market. The
aquarium is illuminated with the help of these lights, which also use
less electricity and produce less heat as compared with the standard
lighting systems. LEDs come in a wide variety of colors and make good
displays if they are skillfully hidden behind or under other décor items
in the tank. These lights are waterproof and can be used as the main
lighting bar positioned in the tank, rather than on top.

Glow in the dark aquarium accessories such as artificial plants, stones,
gravel, artificial jellyfish, glowing pebbles, ornaments, are also
available for hobbyists to incorporate in their aquariums. The glow in
the dark pebbles are made from special material that is heavy enough to
sink and lie on the floor of the fish tank and is made from
fish-friendly and non-toxic materials.
