How to Syphon or Siphon Water

Using a piece of hosepipe as a syphon to easily siphon All the water out of my fish tank

This can be used for a partial or full water change just make sure you get all the air out of the pipe and cover the end with your finger untill its over whatever you are collecting the water in.

Obviously this can also be used on any liquid for any purpose.

    Wow!, nice trick. No more sucking in hoses. Last time, I got a big gulp of fish soup, yuck. Seriously, wash your hands after and before touch fish tank's water, you don't want to trade off bugs with your fishes.
