Hi all, like to add, I use many plastic container large and small. Most are mainly semi-transperant bowl for keeping food. They are good for keeping aside moss of various type till you need to use them again. But have to water change often. Or Ministry of Envoirment will give you a ticket for breeding mosquito. Hee Hee....

You can add a small fine fishnet. It's useful for scooping up trimmed plant leaves like hairgrass' leaves.


Thumbs up to Calvin!

Yeah man, HG is a hassle. Even though use net to scope, sometime the HG will stuck to the tank along the water level and need to use hand to remove them from the glass.

The credit card can help here. It's not so bad if you remove them immmediately... but once they dry and stick there...

Don't worry, it won't stratch your glass. And stubborn algae like green spot algae, attached themselves so hard to the glass that you cannot remove it by simple wiping with your fingers. That is when your card comes into play.

this is very interesting and good thread that so commonly sought after yet so far never seen it anywhere (whole planted tank forum in the world)

With this, people can simply buy a box and put everything in it and dedicate them as planted tank kit..

just to add on, with no pictures..
1) an unwanted bowl with spoon (to mix nutrients before adding into tank)
2) newspaper, for u to place ur plant during maintenance and simply wrap up the unwanted ones for disposal
3) buckets (how many will depends on the size of ur tank, the more the merrier)
4) small spare tanks (this is optional, but u need a hospital n a nursery)
5) Spare light tubes (you wish you have them with u especially when the bulb gives way during festive season)
6) sharp pen knife (for splitting plants)
7) cable ties (S, M, L, XL), you never know when you need these and they are very handy
8) Strong stainless steel sissor that will not go into water but for cutting misc things and plants with thick stems
9) Cloth.. I always hang at least 2 "Good Morning" cloth around when working..
10) Thin fish line, disposable chopsticks, SS wire mesh.. u will need them to shape ur tank..
