It kinda grosses me out... if you use the same airline each time, you're still getting shrimp poo in your mouth!

I was hoping for some magical, non mouthed way to get a siphon working lol

Ew!! You don't have to put your mouth on the hose, you put your hand around the hose creating an airtight grip & put your lips on your hand, if you do it right you don't even get water in your mouth :victorious:

Also, if you fit the auto waterchange system you won't have to ever do it again :victorious:

But its tooooo complicated!!!

Was looking at potential water change systems for my soon to be discus tank, but i don't think it'd work on a display tank, without ending up looking ugly

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
