"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.

"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 got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it.

"That's all i want."

I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.

"Both worked great."

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. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

"So that was MY BAD."

The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. This thing does both at the same time and quickly.

Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing.
