I'll update if anything goes wrong but so far so good.

Eheim 3531090 Final Thoughts

"Love this set!"

A little tricky with the hand pump. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. I'm really happy I bought one of these.

"Love this scraper."

AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. It was on low so I put it on high and found that the unit would be ok. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! This is built tough, so that time may be a while. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily!

"Works great."

Try getting floating pieces of poop into a small slit of an opening. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Going to purchase the larger size in the future. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. It is versatile, as I've used it in a 55 gallon, 35 gallon tank and a 1 gallon tank. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. Size wise, the Medium is good for a 40B.

Lefunpets Final Thoughts

"Not a bad little pump."

We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro.

"- Very easy to use."

I am no longer spending half the day to clean all my tanks. I almost spent more and got the big name brand one. No snails or shrimp would stand a chance. I happily and heartily recommend this product. This is my second review but since this is a great product I'll do it again. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately.

"Everything work good."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. It came with 2 attachments, a plastic one and a metal razor one.

"I love this product!"

I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. So as a hobbyist I started with 1 tank and now have 7. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too! I bought the large one and it makes quick work of alge scrubbing. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set.

Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I had to make a few passes over the built up stuff. I have 6 tanks 130 gallons, 85, 75, 55, 39 and 20 gallons. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. I wish i had bought this the first time. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. The other attachment are great as well.

"Best effect."

One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. The scrapper will float if detached from the magnet. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Works really well and is very powerful. No snails or shrimp would stand a chance. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

  • Pawfly Aquarium Fish Net with Extendable 9-24 Inch Long Handle for Betta Fish Tank
  • Telescopic handle allows you to reach the bottom of 9 to 24 inch deep tank without dripping hands.
  • Solid flexible handle built with 304 stainless steel won't get rust or bent. Excellent net for skimming small debris or leaves from marine aquarium and pools.
  • Soft Fine Nylon netting reducing the risk of injury while transferring delicate fish, especially suitable for betta and newborn guppy.
  • Frame size 6" W x 5" H with 4 inches deep pocket is great for up to 4 inch fishes.
  • Hanging ring added on handle end so that it can be simply hang up when done.

"Otherwise it works great."

My 5 gallon pea puffer tank had some algae on the glass sides. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. I would recommend this to my friends. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket.
