I also use big pitchers for filling 1-30Gallons takes a lot of time but it's worth it last time I filled my tank with hose it fell out of tank and a ton of water got on my carpet and made it smell :/

I used a hose connected to my faucet with a hose adapter. Filled up a 75g FW tank in 10 mins. Hose was $10 and adapter was $3

This would be the way to go. Much cheaper then a python. But a python also has a gravel vac

You can turn it into a python by getting a regular gravel vac for $7 and finding a hose that fits over the place the shorter tubing was at
