"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.

"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.

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. As you can see from the photo, it works great!

"That's all i want."

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

"Lesson learned."

You fill the chamber with filter substrate. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I should have believed the other reviews. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. They more than helped me resolve my situation. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.

"Great design."

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I knew siphoning would be an issue,. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely.

"Very easy clean up!"

The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.
