Easy way to add water.

Its hard to dump water in from a 5 gallon bucket, plus it always tears up my plants, and you can't siphon it in because of gravity, anyone found an easy way to add aquarium water back in.

Yeah but my room is upstairs and the nearest sink doesn't unscrew. I would need a 100 foot cable. Do go downstairs to the kitchen sink.

my python is only long enough to reach my 55 in the living room, i use buckets for every other tank. what i do takes practice. tilt the bucket against the tank and pour it with one arm and use your other hand to pour the waterfall into so it doesn't stir up the water too much

I Like the water pump idea. At this point I dump water from 2.5 gallon bucket into a medium sized mixing bowl. Takes a little bit of time

If you have something taller use a small piece of hose to siphon the water in to the tank.
