One Important Husbandry Tool

Postby Philsuma » Tue Jun 07, 2011 5:58 pm

It's......baaaaaaaaaack. :D



One item per post....anything that deals with the hobby, that you can recommend. Lights, Modifications, tools, containers...you name it.

My first item...I consider absolutely indispensable .It's just that important and valuable.

the laser Temperature "Gun"

I use the Pro Exotics P.E II

WOW...on sale for only $35.00 ?!? How can you afford to NOT have one ? Even if you have 1 tank, or 30 vivariums and a frog room. A must have. It saves small green,yellow,red,blue,orange....lives !

The simple wooden toothpick. I use these things almost daily. Mounting plants, dipping out spirulnila, poking a tad once in a while, flipping a leaf here and there...all kinds of uses. I even lay one on the last FF cup that I feed out of as I cycle through sets of cultures just so I can remember where I was.

I'm going with the NEBO 220 lumin Redline led crazy bright flashlight.
I'll give multiple NEBO flashlight reviews later. Very worth while.

Not a tool, but springtails and leaf litter cure many bad mistakes.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

Borrowed from planted aquaria-
Long tweezers for planting in larger tanks.
Green cotton thread for tying plants onto wood.
A good misting spray bottle that lasts longer than a week :x
Variety of zip ties for tying up loose cords, mounting things , etc.
