    Love that in 650 sqft of premium living space, there is still and always room for tanks!

    lol i am lazy but use buckets as I have to pre-setup my water for SA dwarfs so ph has to come dddooooowwwwnnnn... i use a big powerhead and a long hose to pump tank water into a drain in my furnace room (lucky that my fish room is in the basement).....for filling i use the same powerhead but have another hose that reaches my tanks from my 25g water bucket. I do 75-100g per week so this is 3 or 4 times process. Usually my water is setup in 24 hours so i do water changes wednesday and sunday. Thank buddha no more carrying buckets of water...!!!

    Wow that's so weird to me that people use buckets willingly. Python for me. Even on my 10 gal tanks and my shrimp tank. It's challenging trying not to suck up any shrimplets. Just remove water and in with tap water.

    I use a pump from a bucket in the sink to my aging barrel and then another pump from my aging barrel to my tank .... but I do use a bucket when siphoning poop off the bottom. so I guess I am 50/50
