This is a discussion on I finally got it! within the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> Yeah, fortunately somebody has resealed it since its original purchase. I wish I could speak with the original owner so I could ask WHY ...

Yeah, fortunately somebody has resealed it since its original purchase. I wish I could speak with the original owner so I could ask WHY it was done....but yeah, it has been resealed on the inside. :)

How do some of you guys with even bigger tanks do your water changes? I used a rubber-maid container and marked it off in 10 gallon increments, but WHEW! :P
As Tracy would say "In One Word" Python!!!

Yeah that's what everybody has been recommending to me....I think I will have to break down and pay for it.

First I have to save for better filtration before I can worry about easing up the pain of my water change. :P

Right now I have 2 Oscars, 2 Plecos, 1 Jack Dempsey, 1 Senegal Bichir, 1 Blue Gourami, and 2 Africans that may or may not stay in there. I'm going to let these grow up a little bit and see how space is, but I'll probably add something else on down the road.

as far as water changes go, i just run a hose from the out-take of the tank to the sink and let it drain (thanks gravity!) or just hook up a hose to a syphon and let gravity do its work again. I get better suction with gravity than with the python faucet attachment, i HATE that thing!

Your water pressure may not be that great. I get allot of suction when I have the faucet on. Fortunately, I have a TV in the basement, which is where all the tanks are at. So I usually just turn on the faucet to start the suction, then turn off the faucet after awhile and let gravity works on it's own. It's allot slower, so I just watch TV for awhile. Since I use my water change/filling setup, I don't have to worry about over draining the tank.

Yep, I'm very.....unconventional....with my stocking, but I make sure nobody is being picked on. The oscars would be the last thing I worry about, though. The Jack Dempsey chases the gourami about once per day, but when it catches up it doesn't bite him.
