I use a piece of airline tubing so I have more control. I keep a finger over the draining end so if I accidentally get a shrimp I can block the output before they wind up in the bucket.
Would draining the water into a large fish net be easier? If I tried keeping a finger on the draining end I'd likely have water all over my floor, I've learned the hard way to keep the end of the line all the way in my bucket...
