The best test kit organizer, hands down.

I just thought I would share my great experience with finding this tool box / organizer at Home Depot. It's made by Husky and has removable compartments, stands on the top part so it doesn't fall over when open, and the handle locks it so that in case you forget to latch the front and pick it up, you don't dump it. And I've forgotten to latch it several times - it's still followed by the GASP!! and SIGH...

Here it is:



And open:



A close-up of the compartments:



Here's what I have in it:

Salifert Test Kits:

pH
Nitrite
Nitrate
Phosphate
Alkalinity
Calcium
Magnesium
Iodine

Plus all the sample and titration syringes, vials, spoons, color cards, and instructions

API Test Kits:

Ammonia
Nitrite
Nitrate
High pH
Phosphate

Plus all the vials (about 9 of them) and tops, and color cards

Seachem Test Kits:

Iron
Silicate

Other supplies:

3 sample cups
Salinity Refractometer
Rubber Bands
Binder Clips
Razor Blade for fragging softies
Syringe for injecting Aptasia w/lemon juice
Flashlight
That part of the API test kit for holding the vials (cut out of the holder)
Pen
Stickies for marking water levels (to calculate water drop for PWC)
Wire Cutters
Teflon Tape
1/4 C Measuring Cup
And I'm sure there's something else in there.

There's an empty space in the lower half for a full sample cup, I can squeeze another in if I need to by re-arranging the kits, and a third in the holder that they're in. Nice since I maintain 3 tanks.

I also was putting my Hanna pH/TDS meter in by the refractometer, but the storage solution slowly leaks out, so now I keep it vertical.

Just had to pass on the wonder kit of all test kit organizers!!

My first thought was "Wow, that's ridiculous", but, thinking about it, I could probably fill that box if I put all my aquarium paraphernalia in it. Fewer test kits, but more other stuff.
