So I wound up switching to gravel per my boyfriend's suggestion. We (I) are realizing how annoying this is. I need to make one of those fairly expensive tube siphons that have the tubing on it. The only thing I have akin to what I need is part of my filter.
Anyone have any suggestions on where I can get the tube for it? I have the hose or can get more if what I have isn't enough. Iirc, the things from PetSmart/PetCo are around 20-30$ (I also have a bad habit of exaggeration without intention). I have an idea of rigging it together, but just that key part I'm not sure about.
