Ever try using a hose on the shower? And it's cheaper than the python.Shawnie said:mine are tomorrow..python won't fit my fancy sinks...but hey it comes with the obsession right? (buckets stink though!) LOL
yes sirdarksol suggested that and it won't fit either....I know there is some hardware we can buy but the bf doesn't want to mess with the fancy nozzles so ive comprimised (seeing how he lets me have so many tanks) and just deals with the buckets...funkman262 said:Ever try using a hose on the shower?

my dogs drink out of mine(old fish tank water) if I leave it sitting on the floor LOLlyndra said:Anyone else have problems with their cats at waterchange? My cats ruined a bucket of water I was trying to get to the right tempreture by playing in it and spilling half of it, leaving a nice layer of hair in the water..... Then when I was using the syphon, one was batting at the water surface and knocked the hose out of the bucket and onto the towel... Wetting the carpet.
When I get home later, I could post some pics of what I did.Shawnie said:yes sirdarksol suggested that and it won't fit either....I know there is some hardware we can buy but the bf doesn't want to mess with the fancy nozzles so ive comprimised (seeing how he lets me have so many tanks) and just deals with the buckets...

As for the fancy nozzles, you have two options that I know of and there's not much needed for either and they're real simple to set up and easy to use.
1st option: Simply connecting a diverter to the shower. The shower-head stays in place and when you need to do a water change, you screw in the hose, click a button and it diverts the water from the shower-head to the hose. Cost, about $15 plus hose I believe.
2nd option. This is what I did. I purchased a 1/2"(female)-to-3/4"(male) connector for the shower. Then I got a quick-connect kit that comes with 1/2" connectors. You screw the 1/2"(male) connector to the shower and a 1/2"(female) to to the shower-head and you can just click the shower-head on (or simply pull to remove). Then for the hose, you need a 3/4"(female)-to-1/2"(male). Then you can connect the 1/2"(female) quick connect to the hose and voila. When you want to doa water change, you simply pull off the shower-head and click in the hose. Cost, I think it was about $12 plus hose.
This probably doesn't make any sense the way I babbled on but if anyone wants me to explain it better, let me know and I'll try to come up with a step-by-step with pictures and all of the materials needed.
By the way, I hope nobody took this seriously. I was actually expecting to get a bashing for this one lol. Hopefully, I'll be able to do a 25% water change tomorrow. I think it's been about 1.5 weeks and the API test shows that the nitrates haven't really changed since after my last water change ??? But I guess you can't fully rely on those things anyway.funkman262 said:I just do a 100% wc every 4 weeks
