I actually put together an order for Pets and Ponds. I'm not putting it through until Wednesday when the tank is safe and sound in my basement (I'm paranoid)

But by purchasing 2 filters, 2 heaters, airpump, 2 decorations, thermometers, suction cups, vacuum, and media from Pets and Ponds vs Big Al's, I save $170.

If I had purchased everything from Big Al's (where I bought the tank), I would have had to buy half now and half next month. What a savings!

I have an old python, and when I put up my 55 gallon this summer, I had to buy an new 60' hose - to get to the nearest faucet. I wound up getting the tubing at Lowes hardware for about 0.55 cents/foot. And no, I didn't loose any pressure for filling or draining.

I have a garden hydrant closer to most of the tanks than the kitchen sink, and would probably have more pressure connected to it. Do those of you with Pythons use a mix of hot and cold water?

Yes, I use an instant read thermometer to check the temp, so it's within on degree of the reading on my tank.

I usually fill with water than is just a tad cooler than the tank. I use my hand to gauge temperature. I take a small container of tank water to the tap, and adjust the warm until the water running out (with the python still draining the tank) is close to the tank water and on the cooler rather than warmer side. This stimulates most fish, as it replicates a tropical rainstorm, which is one reason why we see increased activity and very often spawning the night/day following a water change.
