As I will be living in a 3rd floor apartment.. haha. From the living room to the kitchen or bathroom it's maybe 25ft? Or less? Or more? not sure.. I havent checked.. Ill be moving into my new apartment soon haha. Not soon enough however
I use syphons for my 10g right now and put it into a 2.5 bucket haha. Guess that means Im old school? Funny about that is.. Im probably the youngest on this site. lol
At any rate, Ill find a cheap hose to use for syphoning out of my 75, and for filling.
Thanks for the replies!
Aqueon and Python come with a 25-foot initial hose, and you can buy additions in 25-foot lengths. It takes me 3 (75 feet) to get from my laundry room sink to the fish room. And, you need a faucet on which you can screw a hose. Some kitchen faucets can't do this.
A 75g tank is very heavy, water weighs i think 10 pounds per gallon. Be careful where you put the tank on the third floor, unless you're in a concrete building. The tank has to be across the floor joists, not parallel, or it may suddenly end up in the apartment below.
