nabokovfan87 Posted June 29, 2022 Share Posted June 29, 2022 (edited) 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) Edited June 29, 2022 by nabokovfan87 Punctuation Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
