"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.

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

Liveek Final Thoughts

"Cleans well and quickly."

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I may modify mine to be more robust. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. Works very well to clean algae from the glass.

"I love this product!"

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I bought this cleaner for my husband and we got this in 15 days before. The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. I had to make a few passes over the built up stuff.

"So very disappointed!"

The sock included is ok, I use a fine filter media bag because it's easier to clean. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. This is my second review but since this is a great product I'll do it again. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. It's like comparing sweeping your carpets to actually vacuuming them.

It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. If this company ever needs a spokesperson I am their man. I used the plastic one when I tried it today. I am very happy with this as it gets deep down in the gravel,and does the job fast. No snails or shrimp would stand a chance. I love the little blue handle for this glass cleaner, too!

"For that price."

I am using this on a bare bottom tank. Even with my now-bare-bottom tank, the attachments were very ineffective. I'm really happy I bought one of these. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. We have one from our siphon vacuum and it truly completes this set. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

I saw this cleaner on another forum and figured I would give it a shot. I'm very happy with it, and definitely recommend. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. AQQA multifunctional vacuum cleaner makes its job absolutely well. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model.
