DIY - Throw away your turkey baster!

Just want to share my instruction video on how to make a small tank siphon, that is super effective and easy to clean up.

Great video. You could probably use a BIC pen for the vacuum wand if you wanted to use the same idea on a small shrimp bowl.

Just remove the cap from the back of the pen and attach the air hose, and remove the ink, leaving the hollow narrowed tip.
