Is there a window downstairs close to an outside water spigot? With a Python vaccum it may make water changes easier. I used fivegallon buckets for years and just recently got a python with a used 80gal. I kick myself at each water change for not getting one sooner. I simply used five gallon buckets to siphon out 25 percent of the water and then placed a mark on the aquarium with magic marker,When using the python I can draw off water down to that mark. The only draw back is that To add dechlorinator you really should add enough to treat the whole tank BEFORE switching the python to fill. Or at least that's how I do it. No negative results thus Far :) .
