    I have mostly fine sand in my tanks. Will it suck up the sand and drop it back down as it does with gravel or will it suck the sand all the way out of the tank?

      Sand will be sucked up with just about any gravel cleaner. It is best when cleaning sand to either hover over the sand or to kink the hose every time the sand goes up the tube to allow the sand to drop back.

    How do you start the siphon?

    • A:

      The other option is to submerge the entire device into the aquarium, put your thumb on the tubing end while keeping the "sucking" end in the water, then (while keeping your thumb on it )quickly draw the tubing end out and into a bucket (once in the bucket, remove your thumb). This will start the syphon and it will continue sucking.

      With either a siphon starter bulb such as #52615 or by simply sucking on the end of the tubing.
