If you are asking what a leatherman is.. the finest pocket knife / tool since the swiss army knife. I could not get by with out my leatherman.

I picked up a extra-long pair of wooden tongs at the dollar store. Now I can pick up my snails and other things from the bottom of my tank. (a big help since the aquarium is at work).

My favorite scrubbing utensil is a plastic looking brillo pad. It does not scratch the glass and makes short work of algae growth.

a big-ol stainless steel bowl. When changing filter media or taking parts out for cleaning I always have my trusty bowl next to the tank to put the parts in. Much less dripping on the floor in the living room and across the kitchen.

Yep, I had one a while ago, but one of my teenagers took it to do something with it and I haven't seen it since. I'm thinking I'll have me another one that no one knows about by tmorrow afternoon

Leathermen is a multi tooled pocket knife. Very handy indeed.
