The Tank is not your personal waterdish

    My Dad's cat Batman was staying with me when he was on vacation. Batman decided that my QT tank (currently being used to grow out some amazon swords) was the perfect height to drink from without having to bend over

    The tank is not on the floor. Batman got up onto the table it is sitting on. Here is a picture showing a wider view.

    Maybe you can train him to drink a lot of water from it all in one day, and then you have half of your water change already done for you. Then just add some more water back in, and your good to go.

    Even for a small 5 gallon tank that is a bit much to ask for from one cat.

    I have three cats and they all prefer water direct from the aquarium, with an occasional drink from a bucket of RO water. The water bowl is rarely used except by the dog.

    In fact there is a small 3 gallon tank near their cat tree on a low shelf under another aquarium, I leave the top off of it and just have plants in it, no betta or other fish. So they drink from that and not one of my other tanks, I have them fooled for now. The tank has a little bio wheel that has become a favorite cat toy, I indulge them and when I see it somewhere around the house I put it back on the tank, it doesn't stay there for long.

    Knew those biowheels had to be good for something.
