I recently discovered that replanting my goldfish plants are much easier if I have a boost.
For sure! I have to stand on a chair and reach down into the tank. The problem is, it isn't elbow deep, it is armpit deep and when I am above the tank looking down through the water, I can't see where I need to snip. It proves to be quite an exercise jumping down off the chair and back on and so forth. I was hoping there was something fantastic out there that I was somehow missing out on. lol Life is easier with the right equipment. Like trying to do water changes on a big tank with a bucket rather then a hose. Get the hose, it is easier and you are more apt to change the water often. I would groom my plants more often if it wasn't such a chore. I am too old for the chair dance for sure. ha ha
SomedudeAtHome, I am glad you said that. I saw that and wondered how well it would work. That is why I love this forum. I can get product review without having to spend a fortune on things that don't work. :)
