    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?

    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.
