I have a standard 2.5 gallon, and I use the hose that came with my gravel vac. I just don't use the gravel vac itself. I put the bucket on the floor, and create a siphon from the tank to the bucket. When I refill, I put the bucket on top of stack of books next to the tank so it is higher than the tank. Then I just do the same siphoning from the bucket to the tank, and I hold the end of the hose against the glass so it doesn't disturb the substrate.

On my nanos of that size, as mentioned I use a hose somewhere between airline and filter size, but to refill I just refill with 1 gallon water jugs and pour it in over the top that comes with the jug. It sprays around and doesn't disturb anything.
