Need a feeder tube for coral

Post by Burgess' on Mon 07 Mar 2011, 8:23 pm

Does anyone know where to get a feeder squirt tube locally or have any recommendations on something to use to feed coral? Checked Petsmart and Petland in Tyler and they don't sale anything. Anyone know of a website that ships cheap and quickly that has them??

I'm looking for something nice to use as well. Not a typical syringe and not a turkey baster, but something in between. Long and a larger opening like a turkey baster, but syringe style at the end. Can't find anything local either. :-)

What if you did a piece of tubing either reinforced, or attached to the end of something with a syringe at the top. Or maybe some plastic pipette attached to a syringe.

Can get any size syringe at medical supply place for a few bucks and the tubing surely wouldn't cost you much either, but I would think a smaller syringe would be easier to handle with one hand and then you could have the extension of either the stiff tubing or whatever the flexible tubing was attached to to keep your hands out of the water.

Just a thought.


EDIT: Or what about one of those "flavor injectors" that you can get to inject marinade into turkeys?

I use a turkey baster from Brookshires though. It's good for cleaning off your rocks too.

If you go to Target and get a bulb syringe for sucking out a baby's nose you can insert a long piece of ridgid airline tubing and use it. I use this and it is very effective, accurate and CHEAP.

Niiiiiice. I even have one left over with only minimal buggers. ;-)

I'm going to try that out for sure... with a new one.

Yea you could give your tank the flu or something with an old one.

You can get all sizes of syringes at your local vet.
