    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

    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:
