Tank Refilling

I clean my tank once a week about 50% of the water, now, I don't age my water because that would mean having about 20-30 buckets over the floor. Instead, because the garden hose is close to the tank, I drag it through the kitchen and stick it in the tank to refill; usually I take the fish out while I do this because I don't know whether or not it's bad for them.

Would it be possible to leave them in there while I fill the tank up directly from the hose?

Moving them out is just such a pain; and catching them...

Thanks guys

edit: I prime it once it's refilled, then add the fish usually.

It is pretty much the same, as I don't heat the tank, and ph is exactly the same.

Excellent :D

So you guys add the dose of water conditioner then refill?

I guess that makes sense.

I fill my bathtub up with 5 gal jugs the night before "tank day" and do water changes "old school" :flex:

Haha! We don't have any tubs here, it's like a communal shower room XD

Oh my gosh, I can't imagine.

But yep, just add in the water conditioner as you are filling it up.

Done :mytank1:

I added a little extra dose of prime before filling the tank up.

My psycho fish were swimming under the hose current; like directly under! I nearly had a heart attack! But they are fine.
