I sure hope toothpaste and toothbrushes kill fish germs as well as plaque because that's what I end up doing after sucking up mouthfuls of the nasty stuff.

It's not that big a deal. I use my mouth to start suction every time. You should have no problem getting the hose in the bucket before the water reaches the end.

Lol, I'm not sure why gravity failed me. I followed all instructions, but it wouldn't work. So I mouth suctioned *shivers* this was my first time with a gravel vac, by Diablo I had it down so I didn't get a mouthful, but the 10 gallon.......big mouthful. And it makes changes so much easier 0.0 I nearly thirded(?) my time.

Another way to start the vac is to put your finger over the end then fill the tube with water, then stick the other end in the tank and remove your finger. Normally I just suck the end because its easy and I've never had an issue with getting water in my mouth after doing it one or two times... but this way works just as good.

That other method is too difficult in my opinion, especially in smaller, shallower tanks. It rarely works for me. My mouth works better.

*snickers*

Yeah if your tank is anything less than 10 gallons it's hard to do that method. In all honesty if you really stop to think about all the gross things that go in your mouth a little fish water is nothing.

True. It doesn't bother me. It's normal to me now. It doesn't bother me one bit. I do it without thinking.

As long it doesn't hurt me I'm fine with it. This is a small one, so it only works for 5-10 so I really can't do that method.

I spit more than a baseball player after I get some fish water in my mouth. Ptooey! This from someone who lets her cats lick her on the lips. Talk about double standards, hahaha.
