Does anyone else feel satisfied when doing a water change?

I love water changes! Every week I love watching the siphon suck up all the dirt. It's so fulfilling! Feels like a great accomplishment every time! Makes maintenance something to look forward to lol

If it makes you feel that good do it everyday. Better still start a garden and water it with the fish water.

I hate doing water changes, but I do them because I don't want my fish to suffer.

I absolutely hate water changes lmao. Bringing myself to start doing one takes a lot but once I start I can't stop cleaning/maintaining my tank haha. It's just the initial push to start the siphon that I have trouble with and now my sink is more then 25' from my cichlid tank so back to luggin buckets around for a little while

Matt, I'm sure you know this but... They do have a 50' water change hose and you can always buy more hose.

I hate luggin buckets.
