Useful Items

Around this time of year Home Dept and Lowes sells remote controlled outlets for Christmas lights. I use them on my water tank pumps when I transfer freshwater to the saltwater reservoir, use a pump to mix the saltwater, and then transfer saltwater to the main tank. There are other applications but its nice to be able to use a key fob to turn pumps on and off.

Just a note, don't put this on a pump that's intended to stay on all the time--if your electricity goes off the pump will not come back on automatically.

Great idea for a thread. I think the turkey baster is the most useful tool in my arsenal.

Where would one find a corner over flow box? Not the hanging kind, but the permanent fixture kind.

There are several people who can build you one. Fish Scales (a sponsor) can do it for you, no prob. Also there are a few really good DIY guys here. You'd be happy with the results from Chris (Fish Scales 2) or Grouper Therapy, without a doubt.

Battery powered pump with long pump stalk.One of the best things I have bought! Mine has lasted for a year so far. Plastic impeller is at the end so siphoning is a breeze...

The guy at petco had me get these things for starting up my tank o.o! What else could I use? Should I return the siphon and get the one you posted?

Thought I'd reintroduce this thread. Going to be using these for my probe wires, peel and stick to the inside of your stand. Good for things that need to be removed often.
