xD I know what ya mean about the syphon... I got one recently and the 1.5g I have is too small for me to be able to get the water flowing on it's own... So I have to suck it out, and sometimes I don't get it away from my mouth fast enough!! >.< I end up spitting over and over and I freak out about the idea of swallowing any kind of spit til I'm able to rinse out my mouth xD It's ridiculous... I usually try to rinse out the siphon as much as I can after I use it, though... Luckily the 5g I just got is tall enough for me to get the siphon going without having to do that ^.^ The sucky thing, is I have to get a bigger bucket, otherwise I'm gonna have to do it twice and the second time around, I'm not able to get it started on it's own x.x
That rant aside, I'm so excited for you ^.^ The huge 90g with loaches!! I'm so envious!!
