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.

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.

"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.

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.
