  1. Question for everyone... Imagine you're designing "the ultimate version" of what literally amounts to a Rubbermaid or Sterilite storage containers specifically for use with the fish hobby. What types of "features" are mandatory? What types of things make sense for your own use, but might not make sense for every hobbyist? What do you feel like is the "right size" for your own personal use? I might have to sketch this one out and get the design brain going. I'd really like to hear some use cases. For my own experience, I use my tub(s) almost daily. I use buckets with lids as tubs as well. There's a lot of things I use daily, other things that might make sense for longer term storage. I think there's two or three designs here that work extremely well and/or present an opportunity to make the hobby easier, especially for someone with an injury who might need something specific to make the hobby possible. Daily use: that cart that jimmy showed off, on wheels, with specific things made to hold and store things you use daily or weekly. (For me these are buckets with lids on a stool) Semi-regular storage: Think of the things inside of your aquarium stand itself. What would you keep there and is this the "best place" for it to be stored? Long-term storage: larger items, hardscape, things not used regularly but where something like a hot garage might not make sense. This is what I use my "fish tubs" for. (I have two of these)
  2. Feeding BBS every night to the fishroom was starting to get laborious using a pipette. The first thing I did to cut time was to stopping rinsing BBS after hatching and I've seen no difference in my tanks, never going back to rinsing haha. I wanted something that was one handed operation and didn't drip on the floor. I could use a small pitcher but I wanted more control and be able to feed quicker than pouring. I settled on trying these no-drip, bottom dispensing, squeeze bottles. I think these are what Subway uses for their dressing as well. I've been using them for a couple weeks now. I'm pretty happy with the performance. I fill the bottle directly from my Ziss Hatchery. I can open a lid with one hand, squeeze a good shot of BBS with the bottle and move right to the next tank. Cleaning is easy, I simply fill it with tap water, give it a good shake, squeeze some clean water through the tip and dump out the rest.
  3. You can only use scissors for so long so I finally made the move & ordered a set off Amazon. After some back & forth I went with a full set from Hosmide. I was sold on the first cut
  4. I have some how removed the coating on my plant tweezers with hydrogen peroxide. The metal underneath is a bit rusty. Is it safe to use in my shrimp and fish tank?
  5. Hey Folks, I thought I'd share something I did to help keep me organized. I have been testing my water more regularly lately and found I had settled into a standard list of equipment. In order to protect the finish of my wood desk and keep things together I was using a plate from the kitchen. This worked but it wasn't the best for moving from the upstairs tank to the down stairs and vice versa. Also there wasn't much working room. I stopped by a local craft supply store today and found a plastic box designed to store 5x7 photographs: This was a nice size. It has room for my tubes, pipette, cell tray common test cards with room to spare. With the lid open there is even a nice place to put the caps of the test chemicals such that they won't leave a blue ring on the counter top! The thin profile also allows me to tuck this away when not in use. Happy fish keeping! 🐠
