NICREW HXS-01 Final Thoughts

"Just look at the pics."

Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. You won't go wrong with this product. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. For the water pump part, it has strong power, it works great. I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. I found that it's difficult to use.

If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. I may modify mine to be more robust.

"Did this process 3 times."

Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. I have to drag it across the tank and it fights me. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! The scrapper will float if detached from the magnet. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this.

"I still like it."

We have 3 fish tank in my house, so he has been using the cleaner every day. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! This thing cleans the glass on my tank quickly and efficiently. I happily and heartily recommend this product. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

"Fast and easy."

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. It was on low so I put it on high and found that the unit would be ok. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video.

"But it's so cumbersome."

I am using this on a bare bottom tank. 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely.

  • Aquarium Gravel Cleaner with Clips, Quick & Easy Assembly, Long Nozzle Manual Water Pump, Great for Frequent Water Changes, Fish Tank Cleaning Kit for Saltwater and Freshwater

  • ✔ ELIMINATES UNPLEASANT FISHY SMELL --- We all love the look of our pet fish, but the fishy smell is a different story. The best way to keep your aquarium fresh is by regularly cleaning the gravel and substrate of debris. Fish waste, excess minerals and leftover food can get caught and begin to cause an unpleasant odor.

With such a long nozzle, there is no need to worry about getting your sleeves wet or spilling water.

With the help of these efficient mounting clips, any 8mm to 16mm hose or tubing is firmly held in place for quick and easy tank cleaning.
  • ✔ USEFUL FOR A VARIETY OF SUBSTRATES --- More than just a simple gravel cleaner, the easy prime suction pipe works on many types of tanks and different kinds of aquarium or terrarium substrates.

"I used one tube."

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. That said, the results were excellent. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. It came with 2 attachments, a plastic one and a metal razor one. I would recommend this to my friends. Size wise, the Medium is good for a 40B.

"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.

Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water. I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too!
