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.

NICREW N12250 Final Thoughts

"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.

Works very well to clean algae from the glass. No options to purchase them, they look useful. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. Also equipped come with a lot of accessories,. I'll update if anything goes wrong but so far so good. Try getting floating pieces of poop into a small slit of an opening. I will buy again, when the time comes.

"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.

"Everything work good."

The other attachment are great as well. The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. Works really well and is very powerful. I have several of these for multiple tank sizes. I found that it's difficult to use. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass.

"Then wipe off!"

I am using this on a bare bottom tank. It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium.

"A solid 4 star product!"

The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. That said, the results were excellent. This vac is incredible, a power stronger than most of the canisters and sump filters. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place.

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

"My tank is only 3 Gal."

It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I almost spent more and got the big name brand one. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I may modify mine to be more robust. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set.

"They both work great!"

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I almost spent more and got the big name brand one. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. This is good for taking out the bull and then finishing with credit card.
