yep, those are test tube racks all right. I hope I don't actually have so many test tubes from test kits that I need to buy one. It takes me almost an hour to test al my tanks now.

LOL! I know what you mean!

I'd like to have one of those racks that has drying dowels on it so my test tubes can dry upside down between testing. I've got six test kits and expect to have a couple more in the future . . .

Good call. Hook up with one of these and a turkey baster and life is good.

Thanks goes out to whoever mentioned the turkey baster thing...I love it.

Speaking of all the test kits, does anyone have a good idea for organizing them all? I'm not talking about the professional kits that come in a nice container, rather the kits you buy one-by-one, or buy a master test kit that doesn't come with a good organizing system/device.

Any ideas? A small plastic container with partitions?

I am no professional but I have that master kit with all the organization spots. The test tubes always seem to stay on top of the color cards on my stand or in the bathroom drying out.

I would have to suggest using some sort of tackle box, like the one used for fishing. They have trays and a big bottom for the bottles.
