It's really quite simple podge387 . You'll want to drain and store most of your water in buckets. Net the fish and place them in the buckets with the tank water. Then while refilling your tank with the stored water, place the fish back in their tank.

just make sure the buckets have only been used for the fish, no soap or other chemicals.... have fun.... I know I did when siphoned out most of the water in my tank...... I had to suck the end of the siphone to get it to work and got fish water in my mouth.... yuk.....
