"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 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.

"Very simple."

I have 6 tanks 130 gallons, 85, 75, 55, 39 and 20 gallons. The cleaner is very easy to install, and it is multifunction. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I may modify mine to be more robust. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well.

"Will order pebbles."

Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME! Has good suction and decent build quality. I may modify mine to be more robust. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective.

"Love everything about it!"

I bought the large one and it makes quick work of alge scrubbing. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. For the water pump part, it has strong power, it works great. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"Oh my gosh!"

I'll update if anything goes wrong but so far so good. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. The scrapper will float if detached from the magnet. I am very pleased with this product! I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways.

"Otherwise it works great."

Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I almost spent more and got the big name brand one. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

"The thing is huge, too."

For the water pump part, it has strong power, it works great. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do.

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. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated.
