Here at Devotedly Discus we don't do water changes in the conventional manor. We have a sump system, and the sump has a hole cut in it and an overflow pipe to the drain. At the other end of the sump our HMA filter is set up to constantly feed the sump with clean water, so every litre added, a litre is flushed away.
