better way to change water
I'm getting really sick of doing weekly water changes the way I do them.
My tank is 29 gallons. 29 minus 5 gallons displaced by substrate and other stuff and I end up changing about 24/2 = 12 gallons.
I siphon into a five gallon bucket, which is quick and easy.
The part that is really getting old is re-filling 12 one gallon milk jugs, or rather one one gallon milk jug twelve times.
I want some way to run the water straight from a water source, my sink I guess, and into the tank, but also get the chlorine and chloramines, etc., out of the water.
So how do you do your water changes? I need some solutions and fast.
