You don’t need to break the bank to afford to keep a basic aquarium. Big Al’s believes that premium quality basics like water conditioners, filter media, fish food, and maintenance tools shouldn’t have to cost you a flipper and a fin. That’s why we’re doing our part to make home aquarium keeping more affordable for all of our customers with our own Big Al’s brand product line!

Big Al’s supplies aspiring fishkeepers with all of the necessities – we’ve reached out to our vendors and worked closely with them to bring you the absolute best value possible on products of the kind of reliable quality that we’re comfortable with putting our name behind. As aquarists ourselves, we know that you’d rather pay for substance over style, and we also know what your aquarium needs and what it doesn’t. That’s why we’ve trimmed off the unnecessary excess to keep our products simple and priced low, opting instead to let our customers pocket those savings.

Big Al’s products can help you:

  • Make your tap water safe and biologically rich
  • Keep your fish well-fed and happy
  • Maintain beautiful, lush looking plants
  • Preserve the health of your filtration system
  • And retain the natural, crisp beauty of your aquarium

All of which are why Big Al’s brand tools, foods, treatments and media are the perfect low-cost solutions for beginner and experiences aquarists alike.



Our water treatment system will make your tap water safe by neutralizing harmful chlorine, chloramines, and heavy metals, all while giving your fish a comfy coat of aloe for protection. This system also helps breathe life into your water by boosting the beneficial bacteria responsible for the breakdown of fish wastes. Using this treatment will help safely digest detritus to keep your aquarium and filter clean.

Big Al’s filter media maintains our core philosophy of keeping things simple and effective. Water polishing filter media needs to be replaced often, as it is responsible for keeping your water looking crystal clear. We know that means you’re going to need to change it frequently, so our plush sheets of cut-to-fit filter floss are sold in bulk sizes in order to keep that filter flowing full force, rather than trying to stretch extra time out of your clogged filter pads. We also carry foam inserts in various sizes to take care of larger waste particles and prevent the floss from becoming clogged too quickly.

You’ll also want to give your tank’s glass a quick scrub, and we’ve got you covered with our durable tank scrubber sponges.
