Hmm... this'll chill the main water though... Does depend on how much water you're changing though.
Fill a plastic bag with the conditioned water you want to add, floatit in the tank until it reaches the same temp as the tanks existing body of water, and then release...?
Just get a 'floating themometer' thingie, fill up yer bucket 1/2 way with cold water and boil your kettle. Add the hot water until you get the right temp, add your tap-safe (I use stress-zime myself - with it's aloe vera to chill out my fish )... put it into the tank...
What fish have you guys got? I have Cichlids (love my Oscar Ozzy! He's getting bug and fat now)...
I think i'll do a quarter change, and i think it's a 70 litre tank.
That's pretty much the way i was going to do it, but i thought there might be a better way!
At the moment, i've only got 4 neon tetras and 2 sunrise platys. One of the platys (the female) is a bit plump. I thought at first it was dropsy, but it's not getting worse, so i think she might be with child. Though i'm not sure how long she'd be gestating for.
I might get a couple more fish in a couple of weeks. Not really decided what i'm going to get. Defo want a clown loach and a red tail black shark at some point though. Also quite partial to silver sharks too.
