Unc I'm gonna do that. I have a home Depot a mile away and I can just run my short siphon hose out my front door and empty the 40 gal bins out my front door into the front yard as my tank is right by the front door. The way my house is laid out its basically 2 blind turns into my kitchen from the tank so I'd be having a panic attack every time I was using the python

The best to use are brute trash cans they will hold up to the weight of the water very well

Why not just run the hose from the tank out the front door to drain and get a faucet to garden hose adapter and a brass garden hose valve to refill

That is pretty much the system i used except i had a unused washer hook up and drain in the basement that i plumbed up to drain and refill from the same hose

I couldn't get my Aqueon to work to refill the tank and my husband recommended grabbing the garden hose, which I didn't even know could be done. SO, lol when my Aqueon breaks for good I'll go that route!

Also, thanks guys! Marshall is kind of my favorite too. I'm not used to this new behavior yet though. It'll take some time. Lol

I use a python attached to a garden hose run to the toilet and gravity drain the tank

I do WC on my 55 gal using my filter... My tank sits right next to my kitchen sink so it's easy to just pump out water and pump it back in. Takes me 10 min to do 50% WC on my 55 gal

Looks like someone's having a temper tantrum, lol.

Nice looking O. And love that bit at the end: "I was talking to the fish!". LOL.

Lol I was terrified to put my hand in the tank when I first took over my mom's Oscars cuz they always attacked everything I stuck in the tank then one day I touched them to try to hand catch them to move them from the 55 to the 130 and now they stay away from my hands like I got some kind of fishy plague :-)

Tera gets that response from the fish in my profile pic, Jack, but for a completely different reason.

Jack hates water changes and tries to go hands and the siphon. One day he went Tera's hand, and Tera lightly flicked his nose. Doesn't bother him with water changes, but his behaviour towards him hasn't changed at all apart from that. Still loves him. Second in line for glass 'pats' after Doc, lol.

I still nearly get bitten, lol.
