cheap redlight/nightlight flashlight for looking at your tank...

This was kind mentioned in another post, but figured I would put it here for all to read. This is just about as cheap and easy as it gets. Auto parts stores sell that red and clear tape to repair your tail lights. Its about $3 for more than you could EVER need to do this. and heres the hard part.....take any flashlight and apply tape to lens. Done. Simple cheap way to look at the night critters without tipping them off that they are being spied on.

Next month, how to make the worlds best skimmer using chewing gum, a paper clip, a toothpick and duct tape.

You can actually do the same with a washable red crayola marker if you dont find any tape handy :) Just color over the lens that covers the bulb
