I clipped this from Richard T. Pon's article "An Introduction To Aquarium Plants."I perform weekly water changes of between 50% to 75% per week (remember to use a hose and not a bucket)

Can anyone tell me why I shouldn't use a bucket? My planted tank will be going in my office, and I will be using a bucket since I'm not going to run a 50' hose into the kitchen. So I'm curious. Disturbing the substrate/roots perhaps?
