Your favorite non-fish tool?

Those home-depot buckets dont count :P

I like sphatetti tongs and needleless syringes

sphagetti tongs for handling dead snails and moving stuff (specifically burying stuff in gravel) and syringes for med dosing and squirting snail nests. I dont use needles

Haha - I was just going to post 'chopsticks win!'

Well-rinsed yogurt containers with snap-on lids of various sizes. I use a lot of those, for cups and for storing plants during 100% water changes in Demyx's tank, storing fiddly extra bits of stuff in, food, supplies... I just make sure to rinse them super well in hot water before use.

Plastic milk containers with built in handles. I keep pre-conditioned water in those, very useful.

You didn't say *how many* favourites! :p

My biggest favourite is the syringe. I also use it to measure water into those little API test tubes, and to suck up and dispense thawed brine shrimp.
