I bought a "self starting" gravel siphon a while ago to help keep my aquarium clean. I lost the instructions... Some of my fish are sick, and I really need to clean the gravel to help get things under control. But I'm unable to get the gravel cleaner working. I looked online at the company's description and it says to "put the tip in the water and move it up and down." Of course this does nothing.

I tried draining all the air bubbles from the tip, and then moving it up and down, and a few drips of water dribbled out the other end, but stopped as soon as I stopped moved the nozzle up and down. And to add the problems, there was a great deal on Zebra Danios ... and well.. I need to clean my tank even more now! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. If anyone has experience with the kind I'm talking about, please let me know. I previously had experience sucking on one end, but I always got gross aquarium water in my mouth. I didn't have any luck with that method this time.
Thanks in advance,
