Just to add on, I do keep a cane (those which mummy used to cane the kid) by my tank side. They come in handy when you want to kill snails or shift something small in the tank when you don;t want to get your hand wet. They can reach all the way to the bottom of the tank.

Anyone mention this? Long hose. Long enough to reach toilet. For water change and refill.

I thought about long hoses before but then mine are smaller tanks so pails are ok. Its "safer" also as I prefer to let the anti-chlorine/chloromaine settle for a few minutes first. Having the hose directing the water into the tank straight away seems quite unnerving for me. Well, unless you got the RO unit which we don't really need it in Singapore.

Oh, I use pails and wipe the base before I transport it around the house. But I did play with the idea before in my head for a bigger tank like a 4 footer since pails are not feasible at all.

Hahaa, for me, i used long hose and connect it to the toilet while doing WC. Drain out the water and fill in the water with that one hose. Fast and easy.
At least i won;t splash the water onto the floor, my mum has no chance to scold me.
