Hi Shireen,

Just thought I'd share what works for me...I use a python and I have a lot of 
fry, but I figured out a way to keep from sucking up the fry...I insert the 
output end of a Wal-Mart gravel vac into the input end of the gravel vac, and 
then I use the gravel vac to suck up the water.  Since the gravel vac tube 
going into the python tube is not an airtight fit, the suction is very gentle 
and slow.  So while it might not be a quicker solution, it would be safe for 
your fry (you just gotta watch out for them or let the gravel vac tube sit on 
the bottom, not allowing any curious fry to look inside and get sucked up) 
and would possibly save yourself from further injury...which is 
important...what would the fry do if you injured both your arms????
