I finally broke down and bought a python. No more buckets for me, YEAH! I used it for the first time this morning and I must confess my water change took longer than normal cause apparently I'm a little "challenged." LOL
Who knew something so simple could turn so complex when wielded by one who is special.
Anyway once I figured everything out and got things working right it was very exciting. I expect my future water changes are going to be much easier and faster than before! No more dragging huge rubbermaid containers around the house with water splishing and sploshing in every direction!!!
