    Hi All

    I am going to start water changes this weekend & need some plastic buckets - where can I get near midrand?

    I need 20 Lt buckets for now - does anyone have old buckets they get when buying salt?


    thanks
    Mark

    Not sure about Midrand. there is a plastic world in 4ways and lifestyle - Randpark ridge.

    Every size you would ever want

    I would personally get bigger buckets. You'll quickly outgrow those 20 litre buckets. What is use is about 10 metres of 25mm clear tubing to siphon the water into a drain and then attach the tubing to a pump to push water into the tank. One word of caution is to keep some of your old water in case you take out too much water. You can use this old water to top up the oversight
