    This may sound like a dof question, but where can I buy a turkey baster. I have been to a few shops and usually get a blank face reply when I ask for a turkey baster?

    I live near Northgate in GP.

    Thanks

    Buy at Builders warehouse one of Johnty Rhodes squirter bat sticks. All colours, red blue green etc. pull the handle, sucks in water, push squirts water. Lock the handle in place and hit anybody who sticks their hands into the water over the head.

    Got one at Boardmans Northgate.

    Works great for keeping the kids away from the tank :p

    Kevin, is that the proper turkey baster, or the toy from Builders Warehouse / Pick a Pay / Makro?

    Most good kitchen shops stock them. I find that the cheap plastic ones are best as salt perishes the rubber part anyway over time. The more expensive ones have very sturdy squeezee bits which get tiring to use, they're also often are made of steel. (Not so good with salt water).:)

    Add some rigid tubing to the end so to make it longer and saves your hands going in and out the water as well.

    well, easier is to use a small Hailea pump, with thin flexible hose. Just stick the pump to the inside of the display. Then you just need to move the pipe to wherever you want to blast the rocks.

    Just, Do not take the pipe out while the pump is running.... Yeah, don't ask
