water change question

Hi all. I have a water change question. I purchased a vac to get rid of the dirt in my future 10 gallon tank. How would I get water back into it? Use a bucket or is there something I can buy to make it easier? Thanks.

Sorry but a bucket or bowl is the only way :P Or you can always buy a python, which you attach to your sink and it refills it for you.

In order to change 20% of my 10g, I use 2 milk jugs. They hold 1g each and are easy to pour, plus I can just add all my water additives in and give it a good shake to dissolve it.

In fact, I have a milk jug for each of my tanks. Before water changes I kick back in front of the tv while I measure and add all the conditioner and ferts for each tank.

I use old spring water jugs. I refill them right after my water change so they're ready for next week. I find that's easiest.

I use spring water bottles, but my school uses a Python. I think it's easier and faster to use the spring bottles for smaller tanks and the Python for ones 20+
