The turkey Baster, a man's best friend!

They are perfect for feeding your frogs blood worms, and making sure other fish don't eat them first.

They are BEAUTIFUL for sucking up your newborn fry and moving them from tank to tank.

They assist you in cleaning your sand substrate, and making the tank PERTY!!

They even have measuring marks on the side for any of your measuring uses.

They can pick up decaying leaves and any other small debris.

Moral of the story:
Turkey Baster=

I always recommend a turkey baster for those with a smaller tank. Even my 10 gallon is a pain for gravel vacuuming. Of course, that may be because it is divided...

Let's not forget about the baster's little brother - the medicine dropper. Great for those time when you need a little more finesse.

Wow. I never thought about it for cleaning the substrate...
Yup!! I use it mainly for sand, so that way I don't have to stir the sand up and have all that floating in the water... so I clean the sand, then siphon my water for my regular water change maintenance
