"Great product."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I used the plastic one when I tried it today. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. I am no longer spending half the day to clean all my tanks. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

  • Penn Plax Aquarium Fish Net – Aqua Blue Quick Catch Mesh Wire Net Safe for All Fish – 4 Inches
  • Aquarium fish net is safe for all fish.  Fine nylon net lining is designed with their safety in mind.  The 4 inch net is a great size for many different size fish and aquariums.

  • Handle is covered in vinyl adding to strength and length of the 13 inch long fish net, so you can catch the fish much easier.  Net measures .40"D x 4.15"W x 13"H.

Penn-Plax QN4 Final Thoughts

"Took him an hour."

You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews.

Penn-Plax QN3 Final Thoughts

"Great cleaning device."

I bought this cleaner for my husband and we got this in 15 days before. It costs every penny that I paid for it. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. I am using this on a bare bottom tank. This thing cleans the glass on my tank quickly and efficiently.

"Who knows."

I had to make a few passes over the built up stuff. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. A little tricky with the hand pump. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. I would recommend this to my friends.

"Otherwise it works great."

Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. My puffer attacks the python when I'm cleaning. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering.

"Otherwise it works great."

My 5 gallon pea puffer tank had some algae on the glass sides. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. I would recommend this to my friends. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks.

"Added my stress coat."

It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. Made water changes so much faster and did not have to accidentally swallow water. A little tricky with the hand pump. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. I used the plastic one when I tried it today.

"All you need."

This is built tough, so that time may be a while. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient. This vac is incredible, a power stronger than most of the canisters and sump filters. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. And it's true- it has very good quality and nice equipment.
