DIY Substrate Leveler

Just thought I'd share something I made today.

Materials Needed:
Chopsticks (the ones you get at take-out places will suffice)
Card of some sort (I recommend a petco or petsmart card because their thinner than a credit card)

Total Cost: $0

Time to build: About 5 minutes (writing this thread took longer)

Step 1: Gather materials

Step 2: Cut the wide end with the razor

Step 3: Bend the razor to slip the wood

Step 4: Insert card of choice

Petco card

Petsmart card

Bigger Petsmart card

In action in my new Fluval Chi that I picked up yesterday during Black Friday at Petsmart

And it floats!

Thank you for taking the time to read through the thread
