This thread is for everyone to post some praise for the equipment that has simplified, saved or in any other way helped out you aquarium keeping.

I'll start first. My beloved drop checker. I just installed it two days ago. It is such a snap to visually see how much CO2 I currently have in the tank. My plants are happy and pearling.

I don't know about simplified, saved or in any other way helped out my aquarium keeping, but I LOVE my inline CO2 diffusor. I installed it last weekend on my 75 gal tank. My bps is right around 1 and I have a bazillion micro bubbles flowing around the tank.

...decent lighting. For years I lived with the light that came with the tank, supplemented by bendable doctor's lights. A few years ago I upgraded to PC lighting and just recently to T5's. I love the T5's. I'm in lighting heaven! :D (Thanks Niko!)

For me, it was switching from diy to pressurized CO2. Eliminating making that solution every other week, and the 'snot' cleaning from the yeast/sugar solution was huge! Not to mention the stability it brought to the tank.

My Eheim canister filters with quick release valves have made my life so much easier (and quieter). First I had HOB filters and then powerheads with quickfilters and both were difficult to remove from the tank for cleaning without making a huge mess. After I got my first Eheim I started hunting everywhere for good deals on them so I could get them on all my tanks.

I also like my pressurized CO2 but as the owner of a large tank I am very much in love with my Python. On the other hand the plants in my tank love my T5 lighting. :)

So far, my Python water change tool and power saving 6700K bulbs. they fit right into those crappy hoods that come with 5 and ten gallon tanks and give great light for the fish and plants!

Soon I will be buying a eheim and some t-5 lighting for my 20 gallon.
