Water Change Technique?
So I've been wondering this for a while. Whenever I do water changes, I can't seem to do it gently enough. Typically, I vacuum the old water out, and then I fill a 5 gallon bucket up, dose it, and use a small bowl to transport the water from the bucket to the tank. I try not to splash things around a bit, but I always seem to disturb the substrate and small plants a little.
Is there a gentler (and hopefully easier) way of doing this?
