nabokovfan87 Posted November 1, 2022 Share Posted November 1, 2022 (edited) Hey everyone, I had mentioned elsewhere that I got this for myself a bit ago as something I wanted to have a central location for some tools I used on my aquarium. It's been about a month now and let's just say I've gotten myself a lot more accustomed to having a place for things and things in their place. I wanted to show this off, poll the group, and hopefully this thread can help out a new hobbyist and provide a good gift idea if you know someone who is a hobbyist and might need something like this! I know in his recent video Pecktec had mentioned how when he does a new aquarium setup for someone he includes a care package and I blame him for the inspiration for the following question!You're setting up a new tank for someone and you are filling out a cup of items for them to use with the aquarium, what do you include in yours and what would you want to provide for an aquarist starting out in the hobby?In mine:Note: This was put in place so I wasn't using a specimen container for this task! -Aquascaping tools -Pipette -Turkey Baster (think of it for food / small siphon) -Actual Scissors (so I don't use plant ones) -Some kind of superglue for plants is always right there -Measure / shot glass (great for meds but also defrosting frozen food) -Clip/clamp for hoses that isn't going to be scary strong to use -toothbrush -some kind of paintbrush -1/8 tsp measuring spoon (1/4 works well too) for dosing buffers or meds -measuring scoops with long handles -Cup is made of stainless steel (or ceramic would work) as to minimize issues with water if it does get wet -scraper / blade holder (mine is not in the cup, but usually next to itMy recommendation: -Scissors -Brush -Toothbrush -Clip -Plant Scissors -Plant Tweezers (straight) -Plant Tweezers (L-Shape) -Pipette for meds -Measuring Spoon for meds (I keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in the stand as well) -Flashlight (near this, potentially in the cup) -Superglue (near or potentially in the cup) -Bonus Awesome item: Wet erase marker for writing on the tank Edited November 1, 2022 by nabokovfan87 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
