"All you need."

It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. It is versatile, as I've used it in a 55 gallon, 35 gallon tank and a 1 gallon tank. I am using this on a bare bottom tank. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"Works great."

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"The thing is huge, too."

If this company ever needs a spokesperson I am their man. My puffer attacks the python when I'm cleaning. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. The cleaner is very easy to install, and it is multifunction. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place.

"Best effect."

One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. The scrapper will float if detached from the magnet. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Works really well and is very powerful. No snails or shrimp would stand a chance. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

  • Solid flexible handle built with 304 stainless steel won't get rust or bent. Excellent net for skimming small debris or leaves from marine aquarium and pools.

"I still like it."

Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water. Going to purchase the larger size in the future. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy.

"Great cleaning device."

I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model.

"I love this product!"

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I bought this cleaner for my husband and we got this in 15 days before. 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 had to make a few passes over the built up stuff.

"So very disappointed!"

The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. This is my second review but since this is a great product I'll do it again. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

SunGrow First Impressions

"Best effect."

It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. So as a hobbyist I started with 1 tank and now have 7. A little tricky with the hand pump. The cleaner is very easy to install, and it is multifunction. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long.

  • SunGrow Rubber Aquarium Gloves, 22” Long Latex Gloves Keep Hands and Arms Dry, Waterproof, Comfortable Medium Size Gloves, Elastic Band Holds Tight, Practical for Aquarium and Household Use
  • ✔ MORE EFFECTIVE THAN SCRUB BRUSH --- Using a long scrub brush to clear dirt from your aquarium may be suitable for quick work, but for a thorough process, it is best to put on some gloves and get in there yourself. SunGrow’s 2 Rubber Aquarium Gloves are perfect for reaching deep into your fish tank and wiping all the nooks and crannies of your underwater environment with a handheld scrubber.
  • ✔ KEEPS HANDS AND ARMS DRY --- At a length of 22” (56cm), the pair of SunGrow Aquarium Gloves keep your hands and arms dry when working in your fish tank. Depending on the size of the wearer, the rubber gloves reach above the elbow on most people, making it easy to roll up your sleeves and get to work. The waterproof latex ensures that no water seeps through and your hands remain dry during the entire process.
  • ✔ CAREFULLY HANDLE SENSITIVE ORGANISMS --- Some aquatic organisms are highly sensitive to touch and don’t like to be moved around much. When working with live coral, anemone, life rock, and other delicate marine life, it is best to use rubber gloves like these from SunGrow. Wearing gloves will protect both you and your aquatic pets and plants.
  • ✔ HIGH QUALITY LATEX MATERIAL --- Keeping durability and convenience in mind, the SunGrow Aquarium Gloves are constructed using only the highest quality rubber latex. This superior material is waterproof and will not leak. It is possible to poke holes in the rubber, so avoid anything sharp or pointy. The long-lasting pair of gloves can be used and reused for years when cared for and kept properly.
  • ✔ ELASTIC GRIP BAND FOR EXTRA SECURITY --- At the top of the long latex aquarium gloves is an elastic band that tightly yet gently grips onto your arm. The arm grip not only provides extra security by holding the glove in place, but it also restricts any stray splashes of water from getting in through the top of your glove.

"Lesson learned."

Going to purchase the larger size in the future. My puffer attacks the python when I'm cleaning. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. I bought the large one and it makes quick work of alge scrubbing. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. I happily and heartily recommend this product.
