Buckets are like 3$ and their lids like 1-2$. Siphon depends on make, model, and size, but mine was 8$.
On my way to work, can chat for like 30 mins-ish...
I use 5 gallon buckets and a siphon to get the water out of the tanks...but most of my tanks are up pretty high..so even if I get the bucket on a chair or something it is hard to get it to siphon out
of the bucket and up
into the tank..so I usually fill jugs...Would probably be a pain in a bigger tank though!
