It is just the idea of the fish, snails and worse... the dead Tiger Barb from yesterday. Sushi anyone?
Oh, I see. Well, I hope you had yourself a stiff drink to kill any bugs you ingested.

I find that a nice lemon drop martini does the trick.

I don't know what it's called, but I do have a backup siphon that is operated by a hand pump in the middle. You just give it 2-5 pumps and it does the rest of the work on it's own. It doesn't hook up to a sink like a python does, but that obviously doesnt make a difference for you. I got it in petco. The only downside is that it is pretty short and probably wont reach your sink, but there may be longer versions available.

Haha am I the only one not all that bothered by it? I am pretty good at avoiding that scenario, but when it does happen, oh well IMO. I often eat food anyway during water changes.

I use my mouth to start the siphon when I do water changes, and often get a little taste of water. Not when I first start, but when I start siphoning the second bucket of water. There's sometimes some water in the hose from the first bucket that I don't notice, and when I start sucking, I get a mouthful of it. It doesn't bother me though... not anymore than drinking water from a stream.
