you can always fill the siphon thing with other waters .. from ur bathtub .. sink .. hose .. bottle water .. you don't have to suck up tank water to get the thing to start

then use ur thumb to block the end .. and ur palm to block the other end .. put ur hand in the tank .. and then let go ur thumb into ur bucket

You can swipe the tube in the water so you get a little water in the tube, then allow it to travel down the tube a little bit, then put it straight in the water. It should start a siphon but there is a knack to it.

I hate the word "soon." really doesn't narrow down the time frame at all, for all I know "soon" could mean weeks for you while I'm thinking hours. gahhhhhhhh

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

I seriously hope that's not your vase housing goldfish (which grow to a foot long and live for 15-20 years in the right care and are pond fish)

Worked concessions at the Lincoln Air Show yesterday. It was a lot of fun, especially since we had a front and center view of the show. I had never been to one before so it was particularly spectacular for me, especially the blue angels! What was really nice was the fact that during the major events, people stopped coming to the stands, so we could watch the action. lol... Buuuut the reason I'm in the rant thread for this one is because I have an awful sunburn from it. Great farmer's tan lines, and a couple of my moles got sunburnt. melllllanoma. melanoma. melanoma. Woo, hypochondria. And I almost lost my voice because I was yelling back orders for 8 straight hours.

@ ollie, I can assure you those are NOT her goldfish. :P

The thought of sunblock didn't even occur to me. lol I didn't think I would a.) be working the front end/cashier
b.) facing east, direct sunlight for an extended period of time. There was a tent for a reason!! lol
