I took a hiatus from the hobby for the past two years and will be restarting a new tank. As such, there are a ton of simple items I'm going to have to buy again. Before I do, I figured I would check here in case anyone wants to do some "spring cleaning". I'll be updating this list as I remember items I'll need. Shoot me a message with what items you have. Will likely need to be shipped to VA.

1: Test Kits for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate - just need this to monitor the beginning cycle. As such, don't need that many tests.
2: Test kits for calcium, phosphate, kh, magnesium
2: Refractometer
3: Black Box LED light
4: Magfloat
5: Any leftover bacteria in a bottle products (stability, microbacter 7, dr. tims, etc.)
6. Small powerhead for mixing (something like a maxijet or another robust easy powerhead)
7. 10-20lbs dry rock
8. Fish pellets (will be using for cycle, if I can't find, I'll likely just use pure ammonia).

Bought my Dr Tims One and Only bottles on Chewy.com ( bought a bunch of the 2 oz bottles which are much much cheaper than any of the other aquatic sites). Don't forget to buy the Ammondium Chloride as well.

Thanks for the offer, I've now sourced the dry rock, fish food, refractometer, light, and bacteria.
 

Are you taking preventative measures to keep nuisance algae at bay?
