I discovered something magical (AKA how not to suck up fish water when siphoning!)

So I did not feel like dealing with nasty water in my mouth today when starting a drip. Instead, I used kid's medicine stuff. It works well on just regular 1/4 in tubing. You need a dropper and one of those non-pointy syringes for liquid kid's medicine.

Put the air tubing on the end of the syringe

Then you just squeeze the bulb on the dropper (slowly works better) and like magic! Water!

It's not a dumb question if you ask it.
Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?
