I Still use a small hand held gravel vac to siphon water from 10 gal quarantine but use python and or pond pump with section of garden hose for simple water changes when vaccuming is not needed (not overfeeding) I really don't mind the occasional mouthful of tank water,, It's those damn trumpet snails that get caught up that don't go down so well. I sometimes wonder if i don't have a whole passel of em growing in my belley.

Yeah the trumpets going up the tube are a real pain! But you don't need to do the tank water tasting thing you know. You fill the tube hold it up til the water runs out and put your finger over the end to stop it then fill the tube again keep it submerged and take your finger off and it runs out. But then you prob. already know this :O)

if you do it right you can clearly see the water coming before it hits your lips. i guess theres nothing wrong with alittle detritus breath.

yay! water beautifully clear after water change last night, but nitrite readings still up a little and nitrates still high at about 30 but I'm hoping it'll be ok when I test the water tonight. I'm really cutting down on the amount I'm feeding the little guys cos I think with the live food they get is what's sending the nitrates sky high! Just the two small feeds a day - see how it goes. Fingers crossed!!!
