Default 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)
Razor

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
