1. That I can't get the new gravel siphon I bought today, since the one we already have is too big for this small tank, to work! Arghhhhhh! I don't know who this whole process is more traumatic for, me or the fish. The only water I'm getting out of this "self starting" siphon is what I am splashing all over the floor and counter trying to get the flow going. Anyone have any helpful tips? And no I am not going to put my mouth on the end of the tube and suck.
2. When I came online to check out siphon tips, I noticed here that my sitemeter/counter is not showing up. I just played around in Sitemeter and alternated with html code and java code and it still isn't showing up. What the f%#$?????
Okay-I have to go try to put my fish tank back together without blowing another gasket.
Edited to Add: The damn siphon is going back to Petsmart. There must be something wrong with it. Yesterday Jake suggested that the larger siphon had a long enough tube to reach from the kitchen to the bathroom sink and after trying it today, he was right. It has a "magic" attachment that you connect to the faucet which gets a vacuum going. We couldn't attach it to the kitchen faucet because of the type of faucet/sprayer we have. So pretty much I bought the new one for nothing and to rub salt in my wound-I should have listened to my husband's suggestion. Damn! Add that to the list of what's annoying.
