ok, back on topic. Go to your local college book store and get a dissection kit. It comes with tweezers, scalpel, hemostats, and many other cool toys. Also, if you need something to grab bristleworms out of shells or rocks, find a nurse or doctor to get you some skin hooks. They'll know what they are. They work amazingly. Also, surgical scissors do not rust and if you are cutting pads and they get loose, they are easy to tighten. Any syringes make excellent dosers.

Siphon Hose Holder

There are other 'fish tank' hose holders out there, but check this out instead. It is stainless steel, strong, and coated in silicone so hoses grip. Attach it to a 5gal bucket and the hose wont jump out when the suction is released.

A standard 5/8" siphon hose slides in perfectly from the side. You can feed upto a 3/4"od hose also. $7 at cooking stores. (Sur La Table, Crate&Barrel, Container Store).

Don't buy an extra one to hold you spoons, it stinks at that. Gimmicky uni-tasker in the kitchen. Alton would hate it, as do I.

You can find a number of handy little "dosers" in the pharmacy section at Kroger. They have little bottles with measurements on them, and similar items to the one posted from Walgreen. Also, some of the stores catering to teachers (I forget the name, there is one in the Petsmart Shopping Center at Northlake) have some helpful items, like small beakers and flasks. I also used to have some very small plastic brushes (I think from a bird supply store), that were perfect for cleaning small openings and hoses. I lost mine (a danger because they are only the size of a toothpick) and haven't been back to the bird store. I really miss those brushes (if anyone has seen them lately).

Also, I use a lot of bamboo barbecue skewers. Sometimes to move things a little, and to clean out anything hose or opening too long for my little brushes.

+1 on the skewers. Ayt walmall, $ for 100 and they work great for scooting things around. I also use mine to feed anemones. I just spear the grub and let the nem pull it from the skewer. You can zip tie them together too for extra reach.

very cool new product! check it out!
this would have limited use for my 55 (but I'm still going to get 1), but for those of you that have those big bad tanks, this would really add to your aqua-scape!

American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Calibration Fluid

American Marine Pinpoint Salinity Calibration Fluid

This is one of the best possible ways to calibrate your refractometer. Most refractometers have you calibrate with distilled water but this only lets you know that your refractometer is accurate at 0ppt/1.000 specific gravity. With this product you can now know with certainty that you saltwater ppt/specific gravity is correct

Great thread. I would just like to add that, with the exception of specialty items exclusive to the saltwater hobby, I can get most of the items we use in our area of interest from the suppliers of my plumbing buisness way cheaper than any of the retail stores you guys might visit. I don't mind passing that along. Anyone interested can PM me with a list of what you need. Alot of the things can be had for FREE. I have ungodly amounts of PVC pipe and fittings. You name it, I probably have it. Way too much to list. DIY guys? Bring it!

For us reefers with plenty of 5 Gal buckets around, this is a steal and works well.

Happy Reefing.
