Making changes to goldfish tank



Really want a new fish. But really don't have room for one. 55 gallon with 3 BN's and 3 goldfish.

So yesterday after I finished my kitchen I started removing gravel so I can put in my blue rocks. How do you all get out those last few pesky pieces of gravel? I want it ALL gone before I add my blue stuff in.

Can I tell you how funny this is?

I just pulled out all my gravel, and I was just about to open a new topic to ask how to get out the last few tiny pieces!!!!

use the siphon without the attachment to suck out the last of the gravel (just the tubing)... works like a charm!

Hidr, did you get those last few pieces out? I couldn't!

Thanks, Tithra--that's a great idea. I'll have to try that out tomorrow. :)

Yes, the siphon tube alone will suck up anything. But be very careful -- it's very strong, and it will hurt your fish if you touch them.

I had my finger over the tube, like I was misting with a gardenhose. :) It worked like a charm, but the water went out so fast! I had 15 gallons out of the tank before I stopped, and I still see a grain or two--lol!

That was a great idea, thanks to all of you!
