Man, you must have some awesome arms to be using buckets! I tried buckets for a few weeks and I got sick of it and made my own water changer (it's a glorified hose, hahaha).

Yeah its pretty heavy work. I use a hose when the weather is better, my garden loves fishwater! But in winter it just makes icebergs.

WoW, Sky. I lift weight and I won't handle 40 lb buckets of water over waist high. My drain is a 2 gallon plastic jar (16 lbs= one bowling ball). I refill with a one gallon jar. My 10g is shoulder high, so I don't mind making several trips.

An official water changer is probaly the way to go, I just hate the thought of spending 50$ on a rubber hose. Not that I don't have the $$$, its just my father would kick my a if he saw me shell out cash instead of doing a little (ok, a lot) of hard work! He was born in the early 1930s , hieght of the great depression, and if he were alive, I'm sure he would be disgusted by my " wasting" money on fishtanks. In memory of him I try to keep everything as low tech and chemical-free( and yes, as cheap) as possible.
