You can make one with extra airline tubing.

Well you should be going out today for that ammonia test kit, so just pick up some airline tubing. Heck of alot cheaper than buying those premade ones.

Really? The one I saw was $40. hey if you can get it, go for it. Just make sure you get to petco today, we need to know your water parameters, including ammonia.

I ordered my aclimator from dr fosters an smith for like $2. An ammonia tester of some kind is def needed. I'm also interested in how you will aquascape your tank, I had a tough time deciding on my 75(still not satisfied). Corner tanks seem like a whole other beast. Good luck an keep posting pics!!

You've got plenty of time to get it the way you want. I just yanked out every rock I had yesterday to get my anenome out so I re-did my tank. LOL It's easier before you get fish so work on it now.
