Water siphon keeps disconnecting

Attached below is a picture of the siphon that keeps disconnecting. The points where it meets the hand pump in the middle always slips undone. It does not seem tight enough, how can I fix it?

I would try zip ties, myself.

Cut off a couple inches and reconnect. If its still loose tyraps will work. But that tubing is the real problem. I have one like that and have not used it in years. But I took the squeeze pump with me and got some nice fairly soft flexible tubing in the home store.
So much better and it will actually stay in your bucket. The original tubing gets very stiff.

Ok, I will get tube from a hardware store. Another question, how can I get my floating betta hide to stay in place?
