    Its 11 at night. I woke up at 6 30 fro school. Got off school worked from 2 30 to nine. Got home took a shower. Did some basement cleaning, did a little homework and fixed a lamp. Now im doing water changes at 1 30 with a sprained wrist and a 5 gallon bucket. Fish be thankful ,

    On the bright side i have gotten my probally very obese clown knife hooked off feeder goldfish and onto shrimp pellets.

    I feel your pain.
    Back when I was running 200 tanks, I was doing, on average, 300 gallons worth of water changes a day. EVERYDAY.

    Yeah but you can use your mind powers to do it all at once :p. Not to mention the elves.

    For a lot of it, I was draining into buckets.
    Some of the wild species xiphophorus I was working with go 30-40 $ a fish.
    So all drained water out of those tanks, went into a bucket instead of a Python.

    And the elves I was using at the time were lazy and untrustworthy.

    And I thought changing water on a 60, 40, 30, and 3 was a lot of work. But I beat the bucket system. I siphon the water right out the window out to the lawn and the hose comes in the window.:;bk

    Without dedication would it still be fun?

    The easier something is the more boring it becomes

    I put the Prime in the tank after the siphon is done, but before I start adding water. Prime is safe in 5X the needed dose, and I never do THAT big a water change. I have never had a problem with it and my fish are growing and are healthy. I keep the water pristine this way.:usaflag:

    Did you at least have a python?
     
  15. Dino Fishlore VIP Member

    Yes, and it is used on the bigger tanks with no fry.

    oh the fun of water changes! lol Thats usually my saturday fun. so far it works well, but once I get more tanks up it may get split up around the week more.
