"64.8L Passionately Curious": Tools & Equipment Hunting

Budget for this project has been much expanded from my initial plan. Hence, I decided to source online for some 2nd hand tools and equipment to save cost. Pretty fun the hunting game, however I got to travel here and there to collect the items. After purchasing some items, quite a good amount of money has been saved. OK, followings are the few stuffs that I got last week.

I got an Ocean Free CO2 system from a member of AQ forum. The set looks pretty new as the previous owner said he only used it for about a year. Well, it includes: Ocean Free CO2 cylinder (empty) + Solenoids Valve + Bubble Counter + CO2 atomizer (freebies).

I have not tried nor tested it yet because the CO2 cylinder is currently empty. I might need to find a place to re-fill or exchange the cylinder. I checked with Nature Aquarium and found out that they do 1-on-1 exchange of CO2 cylinder regardless the system bought from them or not, as long as it is the same type of cylinder. Alternative, there is a place at Boon Keng called Bioplast that does the CO2 re-fill, too. Hope that all will be working well after re-filled. :)

Another important item I purchased last week via Carousell was the UP-Aqua Pro Z Series LED Light Z-20 (60cm). The light is in good condition with all LED works and nice outlook. Can't wait to try it on the tank.

Testing the light, all of LED works
Also, got some freebies from the lighting seller. I think it could be useful later, too. :)
Small glass cup for plant with suctions. 
Reference solution for CO2 checker is also the one I need
Last but not least was the Seachem Matrix Filter Media that purchase from Carousell as well. Quite a good deal for a brand new bottle. :)

That was all for last week shopping. This week I plan to hunt for some other items, so excited me. The more I read and learn about aquascaping, the more thrilled I am. :)
