I've been hearing about this around and about on the forum... and I can't buyh pythons here in korea, so I was thinking about a DIY one to build here or at least when I move back to teh US.
Bear in mind that I am on an allowance budget for ALL of my fish stuff and I am a scrooge.

Here's a topic I posted on the subject, and got some good responses: http://www.aquahobby.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=48933

Just a comment: I've seen you harp on others about using the search function:

dude... I don't want to be rude but you need to look through the other 300 topics that deal with this subject in the chemistry and eqipment forum.. or use "search"

So I'm wondering why you didn't follow your own advice? Wink

Whoops! Embarassed My bad!! I must've been really, really tired the day I wrote that. It was actually another member who wrote the quote I posted. Embarassed Wink

Anyway, sorry again and I hope the link I posted was at least helpful, even if my attitude was not!

A number of responses in that thread indicated it would cost the same/more to build your own python than to buy one and I really have to caution that this depends on where you live. Due to the configuration of my home I needed a 50' Python and here this costs almost $100. I built my own for a quarter of that cost using these instructions.

Good luck, they're wonderful!

I built the DIY Python using the instructions from the cichlid site above. It works great and everything can be found very easily.

haha Nik- that was my quote... someone just caught me on a bad day with their substrate changing question... I mean- it's stickied! and it has been talked to death on this forum, dug up, re-animated and talked to death again!

*EDIT- just so I can pretend this is on-topic- the second choice for a DIY python looks much easier to do IMO

Hi, I just wanted to mention that I've heard that some garden hoses are infused with anti-algae chemicals that might harm the fish and plants in your tank. I'm just going by what I've heard, but wanted to mention it, since I didn't see that in the article.

May I ask where you managed to find the waterbed fill & drain kit (blue thing). I stopped by my local Walmart tonight including my local hardware store (Home Depot), and did not manage to find this "fill & drain kit" adapter. Plus is there a way to contact the author of that DIY Python article?
