"I totally recommend this."

I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. That said, the results were excellent. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. It is versatile, as I've used it in a 55 gallon, 35 gallon tank and a 1 gallon tank. Light weight and many attachments for different uses. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product.

"It's very easy to hold."

This tool helped me clean all the glass in about 2 mins. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! I found that it's difficult to use. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. So as a hobbyist I started with 1 tank and now have 7. I will buy again, when the time comes.

"Worth every penny."

I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake. I'm really happy I bought one of these. I used the plastic one when I tried it today. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient.

"Best effect."

A little tricky with the hand pump. Try getting floating pieces of poop into a small slit of an opening. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. This tool helped me clean all the glass in about 2 mins. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out.

"It was easy to assemble."

It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Works really well and is very powerful. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know.

"Good purchase."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I will buy again, when the time comes. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. You won't go wrong with this product. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. I would definitely recommend this product.

But this AQQA Gravel Cleaner system is AMAZING! 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. I am using this on a bare bottom tank. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

It costs every penny that I paid for it. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. Going to purchase the larger size in the future.

"Then wipe off!"

The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. Shrimp are sensitive and need small water changes. I wish i had bought this the first time. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. For this tank, the magnet is too strong. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean.

"Works great."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. I found that it's difficult to use. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. A little tricky with the hand pump. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.
