Then fill it back up, treat it and wait for it to be at room temperature. You don't need a siphon now, but I would recommend it for a bigger tank. Strainers are wonderful for rinsing out gravel. But if it's a temporary situation, I don't see a need to get one. The swishing will be good. :)

+1 to that. The swish and dump method is what I do for my small tank as well :)
