For me, disposable gloves. I got mine in Sam club for $5/box. It is food grade and there are 500 gloves in a box. I use it for everything so that my hand is not wet. No water contamination too.

on one particularily hot summer night I sat down with a small foam cooler, about 8 feet of tubing, and several cold packs and made my own chiller. It worked great!

RocketSeason: No, unfortunately. I use it for feeding, or maintenance. I do have another arm long aquaglove for water change.

Hey, I have two of those cups and I use them for thawing food out as well. Great for mysis shrimp and formula two thaw detail.

Cheese grater is good for frozen squid to get smaller pieces.

My favorite tool is the fish room. I finally cut a hole in the wall and converted my powder room into a fish room with a big slop sink and shelves to make water etc

I think I'd also have to go with the turkey baster! Great for the occasional dust off the rocks work.
