    Default I need to do a water change

    I really do, but I'm hoping I'm not alone.

    That was my thought. Heck, if I had to use buckets I wouldn't even be able to keep fish. I do draining and refilling with the help of pumps. If fish keeping becomes a chore you will burn out.

    No no, just saying that I didn't end up doing one yesterday, hence brutal. Python has been a part of my life for years.

    Would never be able to keep discus using buckets for water changes.

    Towards the end of my dicus owning days, all my tanks were almost fully automated. After pulling my back out a couple of times and just simply getting frustrated/tired/lazy about the whole process, i ended up routing a water feed line right next to my tank (H&C) and a added a PVC drain pipe that was plumbed right to the back of the tank which just required a turn of a knob. WC's on my 75 was like 10 minutes including vacuum.
