Just a heads up: A 15 gallon Barrel HEAVY!
Ok so i have a 30 gallon tank, but its in the basement of my home, with no sink or drain anywhere around its actually two flights of stairs between a drain/faucet and the basement...my thought was, "why use a 5 gallon bucket and run up and down the stairs 3 times twice a week to do 50% water changes, when with a 15 gallon Barrel, you only need to take one trip"
The 15 gallon Barrel came in the mail, brought it down to the basement and started gravel vacuuming and doing a 50% water change, bucket got filled and went to move it up the stairs.....it wouldn't move at all...tried both hands, lifting with my legs, dragging it to the stairs, etc., nothing
So now i have a 15 gallon bucket filled with dirty fish water next to my tank.....that i can't move
Moral of the story:
Water is heavy
