Yeah, don't do that. If you have no other way then just use something to stir the water around.

I've seen this suggested on here and I'm not 100% on how to do it but its an amazing idea.
Remove filter media to a bucket. Drill small holes in bottom of bucket. Suspend bucket above tank. Start a siphon, and put the end into the bucket. Keep siphon running as needed. Instant filter+aeration! Saves the fish AND the bb.

The only thing to that would be you need a pump there is no way to move the water up to the bucket

If it's really bad and power will be out for a long time, go to Walmart or any place that sells fishing supplies and buy a livewell aerator ( it's a water pump that mixes water and air). Around 30 bucks.

Hook it up to a 12 volt battery and it will circulate the water quite well.

It's a good thing to have around in these cases. Also makes moving a tank from house to house or room to room much easier too since you can aerate the buckets the fish are in.

Do not blow into the air hose. It won't hardly do anything except add CO2 to the tank and also possibly make you pop a blood vessel blowing so hard. Also, it can cause a back siphon in the line.

I think she means you siphon tank water down to the bucket, then sit the bucket on the tank corner and let it all drip back in through a small hole.

When it's near empty, siphon water back down to the bucket, and start over.

You'll just have to figure on a way to plug the hole while you siphon to fill the bucket.
