    Instead of vacuuming with the Python hooked to the sink, use gravity to siphon into a large (very clean) bucket...then any unfortunates who get sucked up can be netted out of the bucket, and back into the tank.

    See!! You just confirmed they need a smaller tank! I do 25 gal every water change...that could take a very long time...

    You're welcome, LOL...yeah, that amount will take a little while...but it goes quicker than you think...I use to do about that amount, or a little more, but it maybe took 15 minutes tops....plus, I save tap water doing it that way, and I use the old bucketed water to water my plants and roses

    PS Sorry for hijacking your thread, firefly, lol

    Neat pictures! I am impressed how they kept the seeds on the courgette/zucchini until the very end... yeah, it doesn't take much to impress me really.
    People say if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all... Then they wonder why am I so quiet.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
