For fun: Most important equipment in Aquaria

Hey all,

I just would love to see what tools or equipment that is absolutely vital to your aquarium keeping? Just add one item with a why please.

This could be helpful to new people in the hobby.

Item: bucket
Why: The bucket is more than tank setup, water changes and gravel cleaning. It's an emergency quarantine tank. It's a drip tank for when acclimating new fish. It's a place for filter media when cleaning filters. It holds all other equipment when not in use.

Anyone else?

Test tube stand. Without the stand, you will occasionally knock over a test tube and break it, and they are *expensive* to replace. Also if you have more than one aquarium, you can fill your tubes and add your drops all at the same time while keeping the source straight.

the tiny computer is full of delicion!
