Yes, Yes, I know better. It was just the situation, it worked better. Rather, I thought it would. ha ha

Well, the tank is clean, the fish are happy and I just ate a few globs of Peanut better to get that taste out of my mouth. It was a taste stemming in my head mind you as I have already washed out my mouth and cleaned my teeth.

Yes FishJoey, I did solve the snail population. My Assassins did their job with amazing efficiency and now all that is left is empty shells on the gravel floor. On occasion I see one but... I can live with what might be in there now. My Assassins are still in there too so the population will be keep way in check. Now, if only they would work on the Guppies. lol Just kidding.

Inga, if you're using a Python why are you sucking on it to start the siphon? Hook it to the sink and turn on the faucet. lol

Back in my bucket and hose days I sucked water once....ONCE. lol I thought I was gonna be sick

Hey, when you do crew, you look for any way to reduce the weight of the boat... even if that includes no water bottles. After a 5 mile race, it kills ya. ;)

The first time I used my gravel vac, I couldnt figure out how to get it to work without sucking on the hose to start it...and of course I got a big mouth full and swallowed some. For a week later I had myself pysched out thinking I could still taste the evil tank water! I wanted to puke every minute just thinking about it!!

I tell you what though...even though I have still yet to manage to get the damn gravel vac to work by pumping it in and out of the water, I have become a pro at starting the syphon by mouth!! LOL

'Because the attachment doesn't hook to my sink or tub. The faucets are square (stupid design) I still feel Yuck this morning but I know it is just a mental thing. The idea of the yucky water in my mouth., Thankfully it wasn't dug down into the gross gravel and I keep my tanks pretty clean normally. It is just the idea of the fish, snails and worse... the dead Tiger Barb from yesterday. Sushi anyone?
