If the bowl is large enough for a net, I assume it is large enough to fit a siphon/vacuum into it and do water changes.
One question I have is, how do you fill the tank up?
You are right. I just run some clear airline tubing though the bowl opening to the bottom of the tank and siphon off about half the water.
To fill or refill the tank I have to tweek the airline tubing a little run it up though the opening to the very top of the tank and slowly suck out the air and pour in the water at the same time.
Very good question. I'm surprised no one else has asked that.
I actually have some mini valves I was thinking about installing one at top, and one at bottom to make it a little easier. But it would be a little less clean looking.
I also thought of making an acrylic half circle lid with mini hinges to cover the hole.
They have a clear acrylic hinges and valves...But I have already invested a lot of time and energy and im ready to be done.
