DIY: What Tools?

What general tools are required for aquarium DIY projects of any type? Building a sump, making lights, creating your own CO2 or calcium reactor..

I'm just trying to see a list, since I've never done a DIY anything and we don't really have any tools in our house except for stuff like hammers, screwdrivers, and maybe a wrench.

Saws, drills...what's the best for aquarium-related tasks?

55g freshwater - tetras, catfish, loaches
10g freshwater - firebelly newts

hmmm band-aids. lots of band-aids

thats kind of a little too braud of a question. glass cutter for making things out of glass, acrylic scoring tool for making things out of acrylic. Drills are handy for lots of projects. A good hacksaw can be your best friend for PVC. Measuring tape for just abou any project. A table saw or circular saw if you plan on making anything out of wood. HTH
