"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.

Tetra 77344 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Next turn on faucet."

THE ABSOLUTE BEST PART IS THE SUCTION POWER AND TIME SAVING. This thing cleans the glass on my tank quickly and efficiently. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. I'm really happy I bought one of these. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake.

  • Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Cleaner, Fish Tank Glass Cleaner, Floating Clean Brush with Handle Design
  • Magnet aquarium cleaner can handle for 1/8" - 1/3"(3mm-8mm) thickness of glass, Suitable for bedroom small fish tank, book room small fish tank, student bedroom small fish tank, children's ornamental small fish tank
  • More convenient and fast cleaning of dirt and scum in water tank.And it won't scratch the glass.This product can not only clean the fish tank, but also clean the windows and walls. It also has a very good effect.
  • The strong magnetic force makes the internal cleaning brush follow the external handle. Don't worry about the internal cleaning brush falling off,It will float on the water automatically. When you don't want to use it, you can pick it up directly from the water. It's very convenient.
  • When the cleaning is finished, no need to take it out. The brush is waterproof, just need to adsorb it on the glass, do not worry about brush damage.
  • Note: Because the product has too much magnetic force, it is necessary to rotate the two brushes 90 degrees and then separate them.Such a method can avoid injury.

"Worth every penny."

I'll update if anything goes wrong but so far so good. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. If you do not mind a rough ride, then perhaps you can try this one. You won't go wrong with this product. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

"Good purchase."

Light weight and many attachments for different uses. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too! I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I bought the large one and it makes quick work of alge scrubbing. I cleaned it in the sink then cleaned my other 20 long tank. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

"Anyway, he loves it."

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. The other attachment are great as well. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake. I have 6 tanks 130 gallons, 85, 75, 55, 39 and 20 gallons. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores.

"Cleans well and quickly."

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too! Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. I bought one of these by mistake and I am so eternally grateful for that mistake.

"Save money."

One swipe each way and the glass was, literally sparkling clean. Works really well and is very powerful. For this tank, the magnet is too strong. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. I used the plastic one when I tried it today. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do.

"Don't do that!"

I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. It makes my water changes in my tanks much easier and convinient. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said.

"Works great."

Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. I have several of these for multiple tank sizes. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off.

"So very disappointed!"

I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Water changes and cleaning can be a pain we all know. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.
