Greetings, any suggestions for submersible pump, water changing idea..
Hello, I have recently gotten back into keeping an aquarium, although it has now expanded: I have a 20 gallon and my latest aquisition: a 56 gallon column. The 56 gallon is just coming off a treatment for a fungus on one of the mollies: it seems to be doing well. (It is also new and I'm having some mild problems with low level ammonia). But enough of that, I am not here to discuss the problem(s) I'm having: the fish do appear to be doing well..
Does anyone have any suggestions for a small submersible pump safe for the fish that I could use to pump the clean water into the aquarium?
Also, does anyone do this: I have 3 - 5 gallon buckets I keep in the basement full of water. One has a small heater in it to keep the water the same temp the tanks are at. I use this for the exchanges. Depending on whether I am doing the 20 gallon or the 56 gallon, I use some or all of the water. For the 56 gallon I use all the water from the heated bucket. I move the heater to the next bucket, and fill the original bucket with cold tap water, put a lid on loosely, and let it sit to allow the choline to evaporate out.
Can anyone tell me how long this takes with a 5 gallon bucket btw?
Thanks, and hello to y'all
