Unpacking and Installing the Small, but Necessary Aquarium Equipment

You can hear all about some of the small, but necessary aquarium gear on Aquarium Tip Tank Podcast 009. However, I ordered all of the aquarium equipment that I need for my new saltwater fish tank and it happened to arrive a few days ago! As always, we’ve decided to share some pictures and insights about unpacking this aquarium gear!

The first box opened actually contained the waterproof floor mat that was eventually placed under the tank stand to protect my carpet. It is the floor mat that can be seen under all of the boxes and aquarium equipment in the next few pictures. The second box to be opened contained the Aqueon Aquarium Water Changer and one bag of the CaribSea Arag-Alive! Live Aragonite Reef Sand. Three bags of the CaribSea live sand were ordered, but the other 2 bags came in a separate shipping box.

The next box of the day had the Aqueon Pro 150 Aquarium Heater, the Marineland Light Timers, the thermostat, some zip ties, and the Belkin 12 outlet Surge Protector.

The one thing that hasn’t yet arrived? The RO/DI water filter. Many updates are yet to come!
