"64.8L Passionately Curious": Tools & Equipment Hunting Game

Projection of budget has been much expanded from my initial plan. Hence, I decided to source for 2nd hand tools and equipment online. Pretty fun the hunting game, but also quite tired sometimes going here and there to collect the items. After purchasing some items, quite good amount of money has been saved. OK, 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 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).

Brand new CO2 atomizer diffusers as freebies but might not
I have not tried or 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 is a place in Boon Keng called Bioplast that do the CO2 re-fill, too. Hope all will be working well after re-filled. :)

Another important item I purchased last week via Carousell was 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. Might be nice to use later on.
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 for some more items to be in. I didn't know that process should be this interesting. The more I read and learn, the more excited I am. :)
