Sounds simple! What size tubing should I use?

And what size tubing should I use for the water change if I use a Maxi-Jet 600 or 900 to pump the new water in?

I am going to start doing this as well, could be the reason I lost a Shrimp!

Where is a good place to purchase this tubing and the airline valve?

walmart will work. If you want my setup you will have to go to Lowes or HD

You'll also find tiing the toobing in a loose knot will work quite well. Loosen or tighten to alter the drip speed. Fancy's fine, I just like cheap better.

Cheers
Steve

Airline tubing only comes in one size, and if I ever knew what it was...I've forgotten, I want to say 3/16ths but I'm likely wrong. As for putting on a maxijet pump...try 1/2 ID nylon tubing, if it were me...I'd go to the LFS and try a couple different sizes on...either ask them to use one of their maxi jets (out of the box) or bring your own, doubt they would have a problem with it if you buy the tubing from them.

Would this work for the valve?

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...1&N=2004&Nty=1

Plastic valve

OR THIS! Airline control kit? The Green one? That has a suction cup, and a valve!
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...1&N=2004&Nty=1

Do I have the right idea here?
