alittle clear tubing from a hardware store should work just fine. you prob. could even rig up a soda bottle on the end to help sift through gravel.

You can usually just pick up the gravel vacs for about $15-20 the $50 models should be the python models that drain and fill from a sink.

Wallymart carries a gravel siphon for about $8.
