It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Changing water and cleaning the tank is a joy now. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well.

"Cleans well and quickly."

I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too! I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. You won't go wrong with this product.

"Doing an 80."

I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I am using this on a bare bottom tank. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice.

"Best effect."

Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. It costs every penny that I paid for it.

I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Cleans everything, drains a tank in no time at all. Has good suction and decent build quality. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Also equipped come with a lot of accessories,. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used!

"Amazing product."

It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I found that it's difficult to use. I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot. THE ABSOLUTE BEST PART IS THE SUCTION POWER AND TIME SAVING.

"Would def recommend!"

That said, the results were excellent. I happily and heartily recommend this product. It came with 2 attachments, a plastic one and a metal razor one. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I may modify mine to be more robust.

"Works great."

I was able to get behind most of my plants no problem when cleaning the glass. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. It came with 2 attachments, a plastic one and a metal razor one.

  • New Upgraded Version - More powerful and less Messy
  • It is ideal for cleaning mini/nano fish tanks or small betta fish tanks

  • Free lifetime tech support from GA, USA
  • The plastic vacuum tube is only 1/4 inch wide, which is smaller than most of other cleaning vacuum cleaners.

  • This upgraded version includes a flow restrictor which let you control water flow easier than ever.

It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. That said, the results were excellent.

"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."

The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Light weight and many attachments for different uses. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. I have to drag it across the tank and it fights me. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I can reach my hand in, but it seems to stress her out.
