Re-doing your tanks.

i was wondering how long it took you guys to redo your tanks? i just spent 12 hours hunched over my 75 gallon holding down floating driftwood and coming up with an ingenious way to keep it down ( it involves a cardboard box, a shoelace and a piece or two of tape ) and planting and replanting my hc feild only to find out it would have been better just to leave it in clumps as i must have lost about a pot of it when it floated up. Anyways i was wondering how many of you have ever had your arms in an aquarium at 4 in the morning after having them in it for 12 hours already having your driftwood all float up ripping up plants merrily as it floats to the top. (i can really appreciate Tom Barr spending 20 hours sitting in an aquarium balancing on one knee)

Honsetly how many hours do you spend re-doing your tanks (the poll might only work for say tanks larger than a 40 gallon ?)

Also you guys must have some fun sotries about redoing your tanks
