Another bane is starting a siphon. I haven't found the parts yet to rig my garden hose up to be a python, so my current water change method on the 56 is to start a siphon the old fashioned way, with my mouth, on a 50 foot garden hose just so I don't have to deal with so many buckets to change water on that tank. Just went outside and spent 15 minutes getting a siphon started, but now I get to sit back and watch the water level slowly get lower before I hook the hose up and refill. At least I have no worries about matching temp, it's so hot outside that the water in the hose comes out pretty warm. Man I need a python...
I hated the changes too, but I made a little DYI last week, and even though I don't love the water changes , I don't mind them nearly as much. What I did was this, I bought a large siphon with the priming ball on it, removed the hose from after the ball, and attached a standard 5/8 garden hose I bought at Wal-Mart for 10 bucks. You have to cut one end off the hose, but that's why I bought the cheap one. My tanks are upstairs in my house, so I run the hose out over the balcony, squeeze the priming ball 2-3 times, and let it run. I was able to do a 50% change on both my 55 and 37 gallon tanks today in about 30 minutes.
