"Cleaning is so EASY!"

It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom.

"We shall see."

I am so glad to have this for my fish care. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. They more than helped me resolve my situation. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores.

"They are very well made."

Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! I should have believed the other reviews. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.

"Just saying."

Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy.

"Would def recommend!"

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor.

"This works really well."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. I found that it's difficult to use. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank.

Aqueon Final Thoughts

"I have double stands."

I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. They more than helped me resolve my situation. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

"This will not rep!"

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. I just pump the water directly into my sump. I would definitely recommend this product. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance.

I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part.

"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.
