That water suction technique thing shown in the vid, where she fill's the syphon up and put's her hand over the other end...those not work, well for me it didn't!

Easiest to suck on the end until water flow's up the syphon then be quick to drop the other end in a bucket, be careful not to swallow any...dirty fishy water give's u mad cramps, dunno y but it does.

Apparently there are small hand pumps you can use as well so that you do not have to suck on the end. http://www.petco.com/product/109715/...And-biUbe.aspx

Cool they did not have those back then!
I have the mini self start syphon, that u bob up and down really fast in the tank and the water is supposed to start flowing by it's self...but as I learn't everything break's down eventually. So if u don't wanna be running to the petstore all the time...

I'll look in to those!
