View attachment topfin gravel siphon.doc Hi friends, I've had my very first fish tank (29 gal freshwater) for 2 months now and has been doing couple of PWCs where I had to carry the water bucket to dump the water into my front yard which is just 30 feet away. So that got me into wondering if anybody has tried to extend the siphon hose longer so that, like in my case, the water will go into the grass rather than a bucket next to the aquarium. That way I don't have to carry the water bucket at every water change time. Has anybody tried to do it this way and the siphon still works? I have a top fin gravel with an easy start up siphon ball. If the siphon will work with an extension hose, then I will definitely go and buy and extension vinyl tube. Thanks.
