    Werner - try the following:
    - take a plastic Coke bottle and cut the top (top 15cm) off - place this top in reverse back into the rear section of the Coke bottle - that the top/mouth of the Coke bottle is pointing inwards...

    Then place some meaty food into the bottom of the Coke bottle...

    Put this whole contraption into your tank....
