DIY Tube-siphon

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.

This is dumb, but try craigslist. I got a large sized siphon for $10, although the ones at Petco should not be that expensive...

... *Swears.* I really should not go off memory. Bad idea if I do.

Can I get a mod to lock this or something?

You can get one at walmart for 10$, which is almost definitely going to be cheaper than making one. :) And you're right, the ones at petco/smart are ridiculously overpriced. :)
