Do you then return water to your tank directly from the faucet? This is my number one concern, because my water temp fluctuates so fast -- could be warm one minute, then very cold or very hot the next minute, also the water pressure is not constant either. How long does it take to replace, say 10 gallons of water?

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

Hmmmm LOL> I just do it the good ole' fashioned way. I have a little 3 foot syphon hose and I just put my bucket on a chair next to the tank and put the end of the hose in the bucket and do my gravel vac. Once the bucket is full, empty it, then keep on going. Then to add water I just carry the bucket carefully to the tank and pour er' in...LOL. None of this 75 feet hose bussiness. Haha.
