Johnny answered you, but just so you'll know I didn't ignore your direct question, yes. I have 115g, 90g and 70g aquaria and I use a Python--Aqueon makes one too, in my view if you're considering buying one get the Aqueon, they are better made when it comes to the faucet attachment. Whichever, it attaches to the tap (they have adaptors to fit various types, but in my experience if you can connect it to a laundry tap that has proper threads it is much better) and water can by syphoned out using the water flow of the tap; you turn the valve and it reverses and fills the tank. When I start filling, I squirt the conditioner into the aquarium. I have done this for 15 years, doing 50% water changes, and we have heavy chlorination in our tap water (nothing else fortunately) but I've never had any issues. B.
