:For those of you who use them. I picked one up to make the cleaning and changing job quicker (I have a 2 year old daughter, anything to make life easier and quicker is a god send HA HA) Do any of you have any suggestions for preventing sucking up my rocks with the water? Maybe some kind of mesh to cover the vac end that will let dirt and gunk pass but not rocks?
It shouldn't suck up the gravel. Do you have a battery powered, or the kind you hook to a sink? I have a Python (sink kind) and its not powerful enough to suck up gravel. Place end in gravel (it may start to suck some up alittle) and lift it out gently kind of shaking it to loosen gravel from siphon, while dirt and everything else gets sucked up. I use mine for newts. Really wouldn't use gravel in with frogs. Though I dont see what it would hurt with tadpoles.
