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.

"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.

"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.

Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Light weight and many attachments for different uses. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

"For that price."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I have several of these for multiple tank sizes. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water.

"I will try again."

A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. I am using this on a bare bottom tank. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! I almost spent more and got the big name brand one.

  • IREENUO Fish Tank Gravel Vacuum Cleaning, Electric Aquarium Gravel Cleaning, Battery Operated Siphon Pump Water Changer with 3 Pcs Replaceable Mesh Bags
  • MULTIFUNCTION GRAVEL CLEANING TOOL --- IREENUO aquarium vacuum is the ideal cleaning tool, which is a 3 in 1 multifunction siphon pump for cleaning gravel & algae and changing water. Make your cleaning fish tank effortless!
  • AUTOMATIC WORK BY BATTERY --- Different from traditional cleaner, which requires manual pressing to work, IREENUO fish tank gravel cleaner is powered by 2 batteries (2 C/LR14), which is faster and more convenient. But please don't use it continuously for more than 30min to preventing motor damaging.
  • EASY TO USE --- The aquarium gravel siphon can be installed easily according to the icons. To get the strongest suction, please keep the current water level between the min and max water level on the handle before you press the power button. Only that can it work with strong suction at any water level.
  • ADJUSTABLE TUBE LENGTH --- Three tubes of different lengths can be freely combined with a tube buckle, the maximum length of the combination of the tube is 73cm. Suitable for small, medium, and large aquariums.
  • ❗ ❗ ❗ NOTE --- To make sure the service life of the fish tank siphon pump, do not use it continuously for more than 30 min and do not sink the battery compartment into the water. To make sure strong suction, must keep the current water level in the min and max water level line before you press the power button.
  • The excretion of fish feces and the accumulation of metabolic waste from aquatic plants lead to turbid water quality in fish tanks, which affects fish life.
  • Garbage hidden in the gravel is difficult to clean, powerful suction of cleaner can absorb them by water flow. You can cleans the fine impurities in the gravel quickly and easily.
  • The traditional manual water changer is time-consuming and laborious, which is inefficient. An electric fish tank cleaner can help you drain the water in the tank faster.

"Who knows."

Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. If this company ever needs a spokesperson I am their man. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. This tool helped me clean all the glass in about 2 mins.
