Penn-Plax QN4 First Impressions

"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.

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.

"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.

"TIME SAVER!"

Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Also equipped come with a lot of accessories,. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. I would recommend this to my friends. Definitely worth the money spent on the product.

"Works great."

Try getting floating pieces of poop into a small slit of an opening. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Going to purchase the larger size in the future. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. It is versatile, as I've used it in a 55 gallon, 35 gallon tank and a 1 gallon tank. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. Size wise, the Medium is good for a 40B.

"Love this scraper."

I have several of these for multiple tank sizes. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately.

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I happily and heartily recommend this product. The cleaner is very easy to install, and it is multifunction.

"It was easy to assemble."

If you do not mind a rough ride, then perhaps you can try this one. You won't go wrong with this product. And it's true- it has very good quality and nice equipment. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot.

I am no longer spending half the day to clean all my tanks. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. Has good suction and decent build quality. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. It costs every penny that I paid for it. For the water pump part, it has strong power, it works great.
