Here is a simple effective "Hands Free" water change setup.
How it works is:
1. Aquarium end is connected as shown.
2. Other end is connected to bathroom tap with a hose connector.
3. Turn ON tap for 15 seconds then turn OFF and disconnect the hose and leave it near the drain. Water will start draining from the aquarium.
4. To fill water back connect the hose back to the tap and turn it ON. Turn OFF tap and disconnect when aquarium is full. Water will again start draining. Then remove hose from aquarium and roll it up from aquarium end so that water in the hose drains as hose is rolled up. No mess water change is done
Since the shot glass is placed at the end of the hose there will be no disturbance to substrate and fish will not escape since gap between shot glass and hose is small.
Tip : When buying hose for aquarium water change buy sturdy hose, if you squeeze and leave it should regain shape. Many shops these days are selling thin walled flimsy hose so shop around till you find sturdy hose.
