Used gear score! Aqueon water changer

I just scored with a craigslist purchase. The guy was selling a complete setup for his friend. Out of numerous items I am most excited about the aqueon water changer. I had been wanting one but unable to fork over the money for it since I have been doing just fine with $6 worth of buckets and a $8 gravel vacuum. I just used this contraption for the first time and I must say thus thing is awesome. It was do easy to change water and vacuum waste with, I want to do it again. I changed 50% in a 29 and a 20 in like 15 minutes and I feel I was going slower than the thing will go. I'll stop, it's a cool thing. Here's a list of everything I got for $100. Gotta love craigslist.

56 gallon column style tank and stand with glass lids and light
Fluval 305 canister filter with extra boxes of media
Aqueon water changer
Various decorations(fake plants and rock inserts)
Air pump
250 watt heater(marineland stealth which I believe was recalled)
Cleaning tools
Various chemicals and food(aquarium saltautolinker.com autolinking image, flake food, water treatments...)
A fishkeeping book
Bubble bar

I think I scored bigtime!

Re: Used gear score! Aqueon water changer

I think you did too! I love my aqueon changer. So easy and fast! I save water by running the hose to a toilet and letting gravity do the rest. Then dose the tank with prime, adjust the temp at the faucet and fill er up!

Re: Used gear score! Aqueon water changer

If I didn't have my python I would never do water changes and all my fish would die and I'd rage-quit the hobby and start drinking continually and lose my job and have to distill my own bourbon in an old fishtank which would explode and set the place on fire and kill me.

Good thing I have my python water changer!!

Re: Used gear score! Aqueon water changer

It's a must for larger tanks. I do 60% min. changes on my 2-125s and my 75g and there is no way I could do with buckets. I could, it just wouldn't be any fun.

Re: Used gear score! Aqueon water changer

I use a python for refilling my tanks but recently bought a huge diameter hose - like 1.5" hose that I attached my python vac tube to and OMG the suction I get thru that sucker is amazing. I run it out the front door and vacuum my tank. I have to hurry a little because it has such suction power that I will run out of water before I finish on my 75 gallon. I love it though because I have gravel and I like to see the gravel really churned up inside the tube to ensure all the poopers and gunk get sucked out of my tank.
