I use airline hose and a suction cup to make those. I did have to buy some connectors but it works the same. The suction cup holds it in place.
I just bought a 20 gallon trash can and wheeled dolly for water changes (Amazon). I toss a table cloth over it when done and it passes for an accent table.bitseriously said:Home Depot has wheeled platforms for garbage bins!
Wow that's something. I love the juxtaposition of the fresh plants growing so tropical like and the snow on the trees outside the window!Jack B Nimble said:

I never knew there was such a thing, that’s awesome!! Non-aquarium plus an add-on diy. So do you float these in a larger tank, and is the bottom sponge fed by simple air line?coralbandit said:I use 5 g bucket paint strainers as breeder nets .
I have a dog who gets forest walks every day, so we have a ton of dog towels, and they do heroic duty around my tanks. During changes, there’s on in the floor, one on the table, and one on my shoulder.Logan.t.Foster said:The towels I just used to clean up the 5 gal bucket I spilled on the floor.
Lol that's exactly how I cut the milk jug to hold my bio waterfall on my tank.NYFishGuy said:1 gallon milk containers, when cut as pictured its very sturdy when using the handle.
Top use: Cleaning sponges!
I found myself cleaning sponges in the water drained into a 5 gallon bucket couldn't get all the gunk out because the whole volume of water was instantly contaminated.
Now I use the milk jug scoop out .5 gallon (fits into 5 gallon bucket easily) squeeze sponge in there, dump into another 5 gallon bucket and repeat.
Other: Fish moving/ acclimation ect, small water transfer
Net /wet stuff storage
Maybe: small fish breeding rack tanks?
Great idea, unless your in California, then you would be a criminal if you did that.Guanchy said:

TWO great tips here. I like that the rod is long enough to place and retrieve without getting into tank, and the net idea is great also! Can you shaper pics next time?mattgirl said:I use the wand off a minI blind for holding down Elberts zucchinI and for putting freeze dried blood worms in a piece of netting wrapped around the end of it to feed my assassin snails. Corys love it too so the assassins have hurry as fast as a snail can hurry to get their share. For those that don't know...that is Elbert over there in my avatar
