Hi Guys, I tried using my new python water changer for the first time yesterday, and it worked great (so much better than buckets), but I wasn't sure what to do with the water conditioner. If I add it before refilling the tank, will it mix with the new water and dechlorinate it? or will it react with the air and not work on the new water? If I add it after the water change, could the brief exposure to chlorine mess up my cycle? In both of these scenarios the fish would be out of the tank for the change, of course :3. How do other people here manage conditioner with python changers? I'm thinking there must be some obvious method that I'm not thinking of. Thanks!
Did another water change last night with my new Python. I hope whoever invented Pythons made a bazillion dollars and retired happy, because it's just about the greatest invention I've ever encountered in the aquatic world. I think back to the "olden days" of fishkeeping when I lugged buckets from bathtub to tank and back again, and started siphons by sucking on the tubing (often getting a mouthful of dirty tank water in the process, yuck!) and I just shudder. Never again will I be without my trusty Python by my side. Astro and Hula are done with their QT and are thriving. The two of them seem to like each other a lot -- they're rarely apart in the tank, but instead swim almost everywhere together. Astro (the calico butterfly) has a teeny bit of wen on his head, and it seems to be yellowing. I think it must be the New Life Spectrum that I'm feeding them. I don't mind it, since he's a calico, but if he was solid white I'd be ordering some Pro-Gold pretty darn quick. Pro-Gold has never discolored my fish, and I like white fish to be white-white-white. But anything looks good on a calico, you know? Speaking of calicos, this ranchu just bowled me over when I saw it listed for auction last night. The black fins and the vivid red coloration are way beyond stunning. Whoever bought this fish is lucky indeed. I need to take updated pics of my fish already -- they've grown! Hula's bubbles are mostly orange now, and they're noticeably bigger. And Astro is beefing up and getting a nice big tummy. It's amazing what plenty of food and good clean water can do, isn't it?
