"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.

"This works much better."

5 hours even adding water back to tanks. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. Has good suction and decent build quality.

"Who knows."

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Size wise, the Medium is good for a 40B. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. My puffer attacks the python when I'm cleaning. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them.

"Fantastic."

But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I have to drag it across the tank and it fights me.

Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. I am very pleased with this product!

You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large.

"Amazing product."

The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. The other attachment are great as well. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

"So very disappointed!"

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. And it's true- it has very good quality and nice equipment. The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used!

Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. 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. I have several of these for multiple tank sizes. If you do not mind a rough ride, then perhaps you can try this one. I wish i had bought this the first time.
