Try pouring water in it to prime it-then use your thumb as the control valve-open and close as needed to get the water moving while holding over your waste water bucket..That is how I have to prime my 100ft python I use with gravity flow to drain outside...I have a 1gal jug of water to pour in it to prime..gets it going pretty fast....
I finally got all the new water change recommendation written up-along with a new NPT, nitrogen cycle Betta specific, reasons for fin damage with treatments, care on a budget, care in 1gal tanks, reason for SBD with treatment recommendations, difference between S/S with natural treatments, importance of supporting immune response, hard to spawn Betta with tricks and spawning triggers, Betta nutrition from birth to mature Betta and many, many more...Boy, I guess I do need to write a book....A member offered to help me write one a year or so ago...I should take em up on it...Not sure where to put any of this or if it is even wanted anymore....
