When you have an aquarium, one of the biggest challenges you'll face is draining it. There are several reasons why you would need to drain a tank: One, you need to change the water. Two, you need to clean the tank. Three, you need to transfer your pets to another tank. Four, you need to remove waste water from the tank. Five, you use a reverse osmosis filtration system. Whatever your reasons may be, draining is a part of the processes you need to do when managing an aquarium.
