"Do recommed end it."

Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. But strength wise, I should have gotten a Large. That said, the results were excellent.

"I just can't use it."

Works really well and is very powerful. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. It was on low so I put it on high and found that the unit would be ok. I bought the XL version for my 75gallon long. A quality product and if you have a tank, this cleaner is a must. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. I'm really happy I bought one of these.

"TIME SAVER!"

Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. Try getting floating pieces of poop into a small slit of an opening. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. I happily and heartily recommend this product. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

"Fantastic."

Scrubs away even the toughest alge. This is built tough, so that time may be a while. I have 6 tanks 130 gallons, 85, 75, 55, 39 and 20 gallons. It will also flip to the side of the tank as shown in another customers review video. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. I'm really happy I bought one of these. Shrimp are sensitive and need small water changes.

"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.

API 21 Final Thoughts

"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.

"But it's so cumbersome."

I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Size wise, the Medium is good for a 40B. It will take a few runs to get most of the algae off. I gotta say, this vacuum water cleaner gets the job done. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. 5 hours even adding water back to tanks. Going to purchase the larger size in the future.

"So very disappointed!"

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Does not come apart easily like some others I have had. No options to purchase them, they look useful. If I had to purchase again, I would try the smaller model. With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! I cleaned it in the sink then cleaned my other 20 long tank. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

The issue is that the sponge also blocks any debris from entering. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. The other attachment are great as well. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The scrubber is identicle to the material used in velcro. Scrubs away even the toughest alge. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

It knocks out green algae pretty easilly. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Works very well to clean algae from the glass. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. The only reason for the 4 starts instead of 5, no English directions. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands.
