If you are one of the lucky ones with a threaded faucet for suction lol. takes me an hour and a half to do 50% on my 75g with a python just a good ole siphon.

I'm sure you could use an Aqueon changer on it. It has several adapters. Haven't encountered a threaded faucet, neither internal or external threads, that I couldn't use it on

So I have deal with my mother when she's feeling well enough. I take the water out of the tanks and siphon the debris which she hates and she fills the tanks with the hose which I hate. That way I can siphon while she fills and it goes faster. Otherwise I siphon all the tanks and then fill all the tanks at once. Kinda of a pain because I use different siphons on different tanks to avoid cross contamination just in case.

I can't exactly say how I "feel" about waterchanges.
I change water,no doubt.
I like the signature of an friend;
"Change as much water as you can as often as you can"
Many breeders just do this without real attention.
It is water change day (again) and I will change as much as I can today.
I'll definitely do over 50% on over 600 gallons this weekend.
No PYTHON here and ALL water prepped before installed!
I still have a little automation to help,like rolling rubbermaids and pumps.
Pumps to pump in ,pumps to pump out,pumps just to circulate all the water!!


Most breeders list waterchanges as #1 in the program.

I dose Prime just prior to filling the tanks. I dose for the tank size not the amount of water I'm adding. I have a digital thermometer to monitor temp.

The water should a week stale be . Filled with the shower, (chlorine escapes). About a week it takes to room temperature and loses the residual chlorine. This is very well tolerated by the fish.
