LOL...usually it's the human worrying about getting nasty water bacteria into their mouths. Mouth siphoning is safe for the fish, granted don't do it after you've taken a shot of your favorite whiskey!

It's the most convienent, easiest, and efficient way to create a quick and low flow vaccuum system to suck out dirt/poop/dirty water. No machines involved at all....just the pure pull of pressure & gravity taking its course.

There's a better way to start the airline tubing to siphon without sucking the water with your mouth - What I do is fill the airline tubing with water and stop the water flowing out by placing a finger on one end (water inside tube before plugging with finger). Then place that end (with finger still on the end) into the tank or wherever you're siphoning from and the other end into an empty bucket or bowl. Release your finger and gravity should the rest... The water should flow out of the tubing....

Hope this helps :)
