"I highly recommend this."

It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. A little tricky with the hand pump. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again.

AQQA Final Thoughts

"It's so easy."

Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

"Love everything about it!"

This gravel vacuum works very well. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I may modify mine to be more robust.

"It works perfect!"

This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one.

"Finally, I found this."

I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I wish i had bought this the first time. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice.

"Both worked great."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again.
