Great video. One point to make though is that everyone needs to keep the end of the hose above the water instead of it being submerged when refilling your tank. I use a plastic clamp to secure my hose to the tank frame to keep it above the water line. If you leave the end submerged and you lose water pressure due to a water main break on the utility water system, all of your water and small fish can be sucked back into your plumbing and even back into the water system, contaminating it. This is one example of what is known as a cross-connection. Thanks again for your informative video.

Aloha friend. I followed your link and i got this for 6 bucks plus a waterbed conditioner. Dont know what i will do with the conditioner because i dont have a waterbed. lol….Thanks for the link man, dont have to use buckets anymore!!!!!!! I saw many DIY attachments and it wasnt worth the trouble to make. Sometimes the simplest tip can be very helpful. Thanks man.

Hello there :} Monique here from Australia :} Yay I have my Blue Magic thingy :} Just wondering if you could tell me please what are the 2 supplied ( Blue Magic ) black rubber rings for ? What is the size please ( Diameter) of the hose & hose adapter needed. Just love your idea DIY as I’m 55 & tired of buckets Lol & on a pension . Cheers from Down Under Monique
p.s. My Blue Magic set didn’t come with any faucet adapter’s :{ , just a blue attachment, I think to put in a water bed.

Heroin Harvey says:

Those things are usually garbage and shoot water out of every or nook and orifice. For me any ways.. i built my own out of pvc and ball joint valve for 8 dollars works like a charm no leaks

Aqua Apprentice says:

Awesome, I will need this in the future. Thanks for the tip.

Julia Rivs says:

For some reason I can only get the Blue Magic to add water back into the tank. I can’t get it to siphon for anything! Ugh.

Chris Cichlids says:

I love DIY projects and thanks for sharing this information. 😀

Richard Portelli says:

Great video, Will the automatic siphon you show still work if the tank water is lower than the drain point?

Freshwater Fish Freak says:

It could be disasterous…dun dun dun…

Down the Worm Hole says:

ohh wow neat!

Rachel Smith says:

This is amazing. I’m kinda sceptical that i won’t need to do any annoying pumping motion to syphon the water out. I don’t understand how me turning the tap on will help the water drain! Wicked vid

Garden Spider says:

Thanks, never use this method because I thought it wasted too much water.
Does this method also create enough suction for vacuuming the substrate.
Thanks again!!

V. Stag says:

Mary Kendrick says:

Hi Thanks will look for this method to buy .As i am actually 73 and obviously on a budget with my monies.. Is it best to buy it off Amazon? I am in the UK .Thank so much.

Dusty Hartl says:

Bogdan karpovich says:

Sasquatch Aquatics says:

You can shove your python in the cut off end of that hose. I do that to water the garden.
