"Fast and easy."

It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. This tool helped me clean all the glass in about 2 mins. No options to purchase them, they look useful. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

"Added my stress coat."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"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.

"So very disappointed!"

Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. A little tricky with the hand pump. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! I am using this on a bare bottom tank.
