If you can get a Lee's Ultimate Gravel Vac or similar, the water changes for the bigger tank will be less hassle. I got the 25' kit. It syphons directly from the tank into your sink. They're about $65 or so but well worth it when having to do large water changes. I have an 80gal also & mine had to be done daily, 25%, for 2 weeks, and it's still being done until the water tests good for ammonia & nitrites. By the way, this happened during a week long stint in the hospital and then a week at home from chemo/rad treatment. I had someone else do it because I was/am unable, but I supervised. It's a hassle but not too bad to save your fish and tank. Good luck.
