changing water . . .
When changing water one needs to remember: Nothing works as good as
flushing the commode. and
Change as much of your water as often as you can.
I try to syphon off as much water out of each tank as I can and then
fill with changing water. I would like to use the water outside in
the lawn or flower beds. That is something I could work on. (Carrying
buckets, no I don't think so.) One can never get back to the water
quality one started with except by exchanging all of the stuff in the
commode. I learned this from talking to Ed Warner and watching him in
his fish room.
Clean water = healthy fry, this was and continues to be their
equation and mine as well. Leaving behind a fraction of the previous
tank water leaves behind the fractional waste as well. Over time it
continues to build and continues to alter the environment.
If one does this regularly there is no problem with shocks. But it
does take attention to the fish room.
Changing water for me is pumped into the tanks with a submersible
pump from a 55 gal plastic drum of thiosulfate treated temperature
controlled water. In Texas in the summer months, hot water comes out
of both taps. I had a greater problem of controlling the temperature
in Ft Worth than anything else.
