Anything else for my Amazon cart?

In my Amazon cart I have a Nicrew light, the dimmer/timer that goes with it, and a set of three aquascaping tools. I also have a clip on macro lens for my cellphone, it's cheap, I figure it's worth the chance of getting some better tank photos. I rarely order things online, so I'm trying to think if there's anything else I should order now as it will be months before I order again.

Good bargains you like on Amazon (Canada) that I should look for?

Are you the type of person who likes to have some fish meds on hand just in case? If so, then there might be some things you could pick up along that vein.

Do you already have whatever testing supplies you want to have?

Just throwing out some thoughts.

Yep, water testing and fert are 1st things that come to mind. Will assume this is for a planted tank being as your asking in this forum. PH, GH, KH, nitrate, phosphate, and ammonia and nitrite if you fixing to cycle a tank.

I would say its always nice to have some meds on hand- If you end up adding new fish and poof! problem city.
  • Bacterial: API Fin & Body Cure Freshwater Fish Powder Medication 10Count Box
  • PArasitic: API General Cure Freshwater and Saltwater Fish Powder Medication 10-Count Box
  • API Super Ick ...
On my amazon if you buy these together there isa deal on them. Of course this wont work for everything- but it at least gives you a first line of defense.
  • Air pump in case you need to make a quarantine tank in a bind.
Consider what you might want in the future.... Equilibrium, Prime, Phosphate test/GH/KH

Giving back creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone more successful (as long as they cycle!)
7 Tanks and counting..... plus all these critters to feed critters
