When I was do my pwc's on my small tanks I use a premarked painters bucket from a home improvement store. It has the gallons listed right on the side so you can take out exacly what you want and know exactly how much to put back in. I go by 3g pwc's since I can't lift the bucket with more than that! LOL

Glad some of my posts have been helpful. I do tend to ask some basic silly questions so it should enlighten those who dont' wanna ask.

Good Luck! keep us updated with what you end up doing!

Fluidized sand bed filter (FSB), yeh I usually put a mark on all my tanks and always take it too that also built a collapsable stand to have my bucket above the tank and use a hose to siphon it in I'm 6'2 but hella lazy to hold a bucket anymore been in and outta and looking in to aquariums for over 15 years (always fresh) and didn't like the bucket getting set on the rim of the tank I think I'm paranoid but better safe then sorry lol seen a buddy stand in a tank suspended on each end and stack rocks to his height that was over 200 pounds in a 20 gal then take some out and jump up and down and still hold water lol craziness
