The only problem with the bins is I tend to say to myself "hmmmnnnn, I could put fish in there".

I've thought the same thing myself, but only viewing from top into black is not much fun. Though it would help with algae. I originally used the bin for my WCMM Project when I lived in Ontario.

:whistle:

As already mentioned:
Buckets, tweezers, nylon strainer, and my hands.

Not already mentioned(?) but I can't live without:
disposable plastic cups (use these to take water samples, catch fish, dissolve meds)
medicine cups and syringes (for dosing ferts, meds, ammonia (cycling))
mini turkey baster (for feeding bloodworms, presoaked pellets and to suck up detritus from nooks and crannies)
air tubing (for drip acclimatising fish)
black elastic bands (for attaching plants to driftwood)
crocheted-edge hand towels (for adding that extra class when wiping down, at least I haven't re-gifted them, ma!)

I get all the old towels...they're either turned into "car" towels or "fish" towels. I have to admit, I'm pretty "low-rent" though...my edges are not crocheted. :D

Greta B: The WCMM Project was "White Cloud Mountain Minnow" Project I ran outdoors when I lived in a more "tropical" (Southern Ontario is referred to as the "Banana Belt". I lived in Windsor, ON previously) climate. Unfortunately, due to extreme heat and humidity it turned out poorly but I gained some valuable inside on breeding tropicals outside and the following year, I installed a 150GAL pond and moved all my breeding (and Aquarium Plant Growing) to this pond for the duration of the Summer.

Sorry, I'm all out of crocheted-edge towels, but I do have a surplus of crochet-covered clothes hangers if anyone is interested.

I actually prefer the crocheted hats with the beer can panels. My grandmother made me one of these when I was about eight. :roll:

She did not! :biglaugh:

My grandmother used to make doorstoppers out of bricks with a similar technique, too... plus the coathangers, and quilts, and all kinds of stuff!
