I can take a pick of mine when I get home. But my setup is pretty simple. I have a short (about 6" long) small diameter tube attached to a 3 way stopcock and a longer tubing (about 4 ft) leading from the stopcock to the container. I simply hook the unit to the side of my tank, open the stopcock and siphon the water through the tubing. Then I simply adjust the stopcock to the desired flow and place the longer tubing into the container.
I also place a small heater in the container.
Let the water drip at a very slow pace (about 2 hrs for fish, longer for inverts) until the PH, SPG and temperature match. Once they do match, you may place the animal in the system.

Guess it'll be the new rule for Marine specimen introduction.

Thanks for the help!
