New things I got for the tank.

Recommended Posts

Since I will be going away to college this upcoming fall I've been getting things for the tank ready, mainly getting a timer for the light. I actually found the timer in my house because at one point my one aunt kept leaving the straightner on. You pretty much set what time you want whatever it is to turn on and to turn off and then you plug it in and the plug to whatever into it, so far it has been working great. I also just recently saw a post of cl in the free section that someone had a bunch of aquarium stuff on the curb in boxes. It seemed like it was older things and that it has been sitting around for awhile, but I found a bunch of goodies:) I was going to take a filter since they had three but the parts were everywhere and I didn't know what went to what. Here are a few photos of the things I got though.

I thought the little creature(can't think of what they are called right now) was cute and same thing with the fish haven. Then I picked up two pieces of drift wood, which I've wanted to get for awhile but they are usually expensive and the castle I thought I could maybe use for a different tank setup.

I then got a few rocks( I probably won't put the green ones in my tank) and a few airstones and some air tubing. Also I got a bag full of these things that are plastic but looks like rock that you can choose how you stack them. Another thing was the heaters that they had. I personally haven't seen ones like these and most likely will try them out before I use one in my tank but they didn't look to bad so I thought why not. I'm pretty sure you can't submerge them, which is ok. Also they are made by supreme heetmaster and penn plax. Downfall is they don't have the temp on them like my other heater only low or high with lines in between.

They had a bunch of light fixtures and I picked up this one because it did have a bulb already(but either the fixture doesn't work or it's the bulb), but it's not that big of a deal if it doesn't work I just figured I could use it for my 20 gallon long when I set it up. I believe the fixture is 30 inches long and it's made by perfecto. They had a bunch of filter media that wasn't even open and so I grabbed the foam inserts.

There are a few things that I got but didn't show which was a few plants and a breeder box. The plants I'm not sure if I will use because parts are breaking off, but I thought that most of the things I got were good finds espcially for free. Thank you for reading and if you have any insight on the heaters let me know and also if you have any ideas on how I should setup the decor in my tank that would also be helpful:)

That I got or that they had out? I roughly got 20+ items I would say and they had 7 boxes full of things.

Are these for the goldfish tank?

Remember to fill all of the hollow ornaments with sand or gravel and silicone something over the end so that the fish don't get in and so that the water doesn't stagnate or become a debris-magnet.

Yes it is. I honestly might not use any of the hollow ornaments in my goldfish tank, but if I do I will put something over the holes.

Some of those things look pretty useful! Good for you! :)

I definitely agree about the hollow ornaments--I wouldn't use them either.

Yea I'm glad I saw the post and once I got home I saw that someone had a 55gal tank with all the equipment for free near by, but I just got my 40 recently and don't have room for another tank sadly.
