Aqueon or python water changer?

I haven't used an automatic water changer before. I am upgrading to a 75 gal freshwater community tank with ecocomplete as the substrate. The height will be 21" and believe I would need an extension either way. I am making myself crazy trying to decide. What do you use and/or recommend?

It's not to hard. Al you use is a water hose and a few y joints with the on/off valves. Then an adapter for your sink faucet.

If the price difference isn't a big deal to you get the Python. The hose is much more flexible and overall it's just a little higher quality IMO.

+1 on the python over the aqueon the extra cost is more than worth it.

Thank you. I haven't ordered anything yet. Any suggested accessories? I noticed suggestions for a brass adapter and a siphon on amazon

It comes with a brass adapter (another nice thing about the Python). The package will have everything you need...no accessories necessary.
