    I enjoy cleaning my fish tanks. Not only because it is good for the fish and tank in general but Idk. I just like cleaning the water and tanks. Anyone else feel the same? Is it weird? I just like making the ground and water nice and clean and it makes my loaches come out too. It's not a " chore" for me. I like it. It makes all my fish happy and active

    I do and don't. Lugging buckets of water and making a mess is not my favorite.
    What I like more is seeing things get sucked on the filter. I don't know why, but it's very satisfying to see debris get eaten in the filter.

    I loved it when I had a 29gallon tank. I've swapped to a 72gallon tank and now it's more like a chore. Looking to invest in a python type set up to take the work out of it...

    I use a python to clean my tanks to I guess I dont have that mess. Theyre really good to use for large tanks

    I have a python hooked up to a slop-sink. It's great for cleaning my 55 gal.

    With such a big tank, you can get the Aqueon water changer, the lalafoo changer or python. But the Aqueon water changer was like 20$ @ Amazon & 24$ @ Petsmart. good prices right now. And you wish you’d had bought one yrs ago when you get it, make water changes so much easier.

    I just like keeping the tanks clean & stink free. And fish appreciate it also. It was a chore when I used buckets, not after I switched to water changer!

    I can't use water change systems on my faucets, so I have to use buckets.

    Unfortunately, my bathroom sink faucet is rectangular and the mesh strainer thing doesn't come off, either, nor are there any threads on it.

    Hard to tell from the photo. What side of the tank is that? Kinda looks like mold or fungus maybe??
