Helpful tip!

Hey guys, just wanted to let you guys know that a really quick and easy way to measure out specific amounts of medication/water/anything for the aquarium is to go to your local target pharmacy, and ask for a 5 mL syringe. They should give you some, assuming you ask nicely ;) but I found that these are extremely helpful and accessible, and they'r nozzles are made for taking up liquids, and not needles. Hope this helps!

I've got a 1ml syringe which works perfectly for making just 1 gallon of treated water.

Yep I have a number of those things wandering around my room. I have 10mL ones kinda like this most pharmacies will give them out for free or charge you like 50 cents. I use them for whatever. Dosing fertilizers to target feeding of bloodworms. I also use like 1 to 3 mL pippets from walmart for finer things since they have a long narrow tip. Use a really small one to feed bloodworms to carnivorous plants. Tip is to narrow for the bloodworms to fit through to they stick nicely on the very tip of it.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
