I recently set up a 55 gallon tank, it cycled rather quickly with my api quickstart and a couple zebra danios. ( I did test this, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, about 10ppm on the nitrate last test).

But boy feeding those zebras red food on white sand, I would be sure they ate all of it, and what they didn't eat I got out with the suction of a straw, but of course, fish produce waste, in this case, nice red waste. And I was going to invest in a python so I didn't have to lug around buckets and risk stressing my fish by having to pour water in, but after looking at my faucet (and unscrewing the strainer) im not sure a python will fit... actually im positive it wont.

heres a pic, sorry for the dirtiness. if anyone can think of a way to make it fit please share, thanks.Faucet.JPG

I bought something like this when I built my Python-like water changer. I thought the Python brand water changers came with dual-threaded adapters, though. Your faucet isn't anything special or unusual, so the adapter you need may be included. I just like the quick-connect because it's brass and it has an aerator built in so it can stay on the faucet permanently so I don't have to remove the aerator and adapter every time I do a water change.

Edit: I just checked, and Python brand water changers do come with an adapter that should work fine for your faucet.

I had the same problem and never got a Python to work with any faucet in my home.

So now I use a pond pump to create suction.
