    Turkey, you may want to edit the link to your tutorial so that it actually takes you to the first page. :)

    BTW, nice job on condensing these.

    LiveAquaria.com has the drip method and the standard method which are both interesting, too.

    I just looked, now they are 5.99

    My siphon I use for water changes has a ball pump and a valve on the end that I can set to a steady drip. This method is so much easier than the bag method, it makes way more sense.

    I just wanted to comment here because I've always done the bag method in the past, never really thought there was any other way people did it.

    However I tried Piscine's method the other day, and not only was it a lot simpler to set up than I thought, it also worked like a charm! By the end of an hour I had a calm, colourful school of tetras who only freaked out a little when I netted them out.

    Great method, great advice, and I will be using this everytime I add fish from now on. Thank you!
