Power Supply & Power Strips for Aquariums

If you’re a fairly inexperienced aquarist, you will soon learn that there are MANY pieces of fish tank equipment, products and supplies you’ve never heard of, let alone know what you’d possibly need them for. That’s where we come in. On our website and on our blog, you’ll find out all sorts of cool, useful information about fish and other aquatic life and how to care for them, and you’ll also learn about the massive number of aquarium supplies you never realized you even needed. You experienced fish owners out there know the number of fish aquarium supplies seems endless. For instance, did you know that you might need a power strip for your aquarium? Power strips and timers for aquariums are fairly simple pieces of equipment, but they may prove to be indispensable once you learn how they are used and what benefits they offer. Zen Pet Supplies carries a number of aquarium power strips (with and without timers) that are of the highest quality and are quite affordable.

Once you start setting up your aquarium, you’ll soon realize there are a lot of pieces that require power. Beware that water and electricity are a very dangerous combination—lethal, in fact, so it’s absolutely imperative that you set up your aquarium in a safe way that keeps all electrical sources away from the tank’s water. Aquarium power strips allow you to plug in pumps, filters and other pieces of equipment in a safe, organized way that will keep you and your fish out of harm’s way. Many of our aquarium power strips have built-in timers making caring for your fish much easier. Timers allow your tank to function properly when you can’t be there to turn equipment on and off at specific times.

You can choose a very basic timer or a more advanced one; regardless of which type you choose, you can depend on the timer to keep your lights on a regular schedule whether you’re home or not. Having a light timer built into a power strip or surge protector is a huge advantage because the equipment is protected and your aquarium’s schedule is kept on track. Even our aquatic pets need a regular schedule of light and darkness and sleep/awake time. In addition to analog and digital timers, Zen Pet Supplies’ current inventory also includes a splitter cable that makes it easy to add more LED strips or whatever type you choose. When it comes to aquarium power strips and timers, you’ve come to the right place because we have a nice selection for you to choose from, and if you don’t see a specific type you need, please check back soon because we update our inventory on a regular basis.
