an ode....to my new python

O' hark thy Python
I love you in the most special way
You make my aquarium sparkle
With your great suction

O' Python thy wonderous cleaner
you refill my tanks with such ease
I do not know howest I was without thine
Your power is unmatched

O' how my fish love thee
Swimming in thine flow on refill
and singing your praises after cleaning
Thank you o' python, Thank you.

I bought a Python as part of my setup with my new tank. I've never lived without a it, so I guess I can't truly appreciate how great it is.

I have 5 tanks running, 3 waiting to be set up.

I weigh 100 lbs soaking wet. And have been doing maintenance with a manual syphon and buckets. I also live in a loft and two tanks are upstairs and two downstairs.

Thus, before my glorious python, I would:

Fill 5 gal bucket, run downstairs, empty over balcony.
Fill 5 gal bucket in tub upstairs, run downstairs, fill tank.

imagine doing 15-40 gal water changes this way. imagine this on 5 tanks.

Thine Python is a godsend.

Cute poem FP!!

I have a couple questions about refilling on water changes. Do you put a thermometer @ the end of the hose to check temp, and does ity remain fairly consistant?.....are all the tanks close to the same temp? And what do you do if the the water supply is chlorinated?

TIA

I hand check the temp. Yes, it is not as accurate, but i think it is pretty darn close. and the fish are happy happy.

I add dechlorinator in the stream when refilling.
