    Buy youself a length of small bore airhose and an airhose screw clamp....Start the syphon, use the clamp to regulate the drips to 1 - 2 per second...job done :)

    I knot the airline tubing as opposed to using a clamp, works well for me!

    after the dripping for 3 hrs, why not just pour the fish into the tank, as opposed to netting them... the "mini tank" should have already had the equivalent of multiple water changes by then right?

    I never add shipping water, whether it contains bag buddies or not.

    Where do you get an airline screw clamp? I was looking, but couldn't find one, wound up going with this in line valve that leaks like crazy.
