I got a Python!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so many of you had tried to teach me how to make something like a Python on my own...But I'm going to be honest - I suck at DIY stuff. I get bored, agitated and tend to take shortcuts and everything falls apart and I throw in the towel.

So when my mum offered me $200 to spend on whatever I needed for the fish...

I got on Ebay and ordered myself a python. Being in Australia the shipping cost more than the python itself...

But I just used it for the first time and it's brilliant! No more messy lugging buckets or getting someone to hold the hose while I run to turn it off. And I don't need to worry about whatever might be lurking in the hose. It did take me a little bit to get the hang of it, I accidentally blocked it up with gravel at one stage :P But once I got in the swing of things the water change went so so much faster. I think this is one of the most worthwhile investments I've made for my goldies x3 (and it will be a huge help for my axolotl tank too! I had actually being considering rehoming him because I was finding it so hard keeping up with two large tanks, Now, no worries x3)

:Congrats:

I confess to being extremely poor at DIY myself, so these ready made things are amazing! :)

what a feeling eh? that's how i felt when mine got shipped over a few years ago :D congratulations. be sure to cover the siphon when you are not cleaning, ie, just emptying.. many fish have died or been seriously harmed having been sucked up by accident.

Know that feeling all too well! One of my old goldfish died in an accident with the regular syphon :( So will definitely be covering it when only removing water!

The single best investment you can make in this hobby. I've had mine going on 9 years now and it still works just as good as the day I bought it. Worth every penny and then some. :D

I'm so happy you got one! I love mine!

When i first got it, it took some tinkering to get used to. I ended up spraying the living room with water, at some point. Then, I wasn't paying attention, and I almost over flowed the tank. Lol! It's really funny, sometimes. ;)

I'm afraid if I didn't get one I'd eventually have had to give up my fish :( I'm not allowed to lift more than 5kg and my dad normally took the buckets of water out for me, but he isn't as well anymore, has bad shoulders and knees and it was a real struggle :(

I'm so glad I got the python x3

Thats kinda what happened to me after my last car accident... Cant lift anything more than 10 pounds off the floor and 20 off the counter... my back has gotten better but thats with alot of rest and using the python... I had a 80 gallon tank I was filling up with buckets :o
