i have a 150 gal tank. If I do a large water change what are some ideas for the water? I have been filling 5 gallon jugs with water to use, but to do a 25-50 percent change I would have to pump it in from a hose and then the temp would be too low and I am concerned the fish would go into shock. How do you folks do it?

Btw running a Fluval 4x canister and I am super impressed with it. Easy clean, great engineering, and easy cleaning. Just my $02

The easiest thing would be to get a Python or Aqueon water change system. On filling the tank try to match the tap water temperature to the tank temperature as close as possible. Treat the water with the dechlorinator prior to doing your refill for the whole volume of the tank. Prime is the conditioner of choice.

Got my python yesterday and tonight will be its first usage. Looks like a simple, well thought out device. I had to buy the 100 footer due to distance to water source, but beats carrying 5 gallon water hugs.

Thanks for all the helpful tips
