"IT's SO easy to use."

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy!

"It really helped a lot."

What I love about this is the water return function. I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze.

"It is junk."

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. I found that it's difficult to use. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used!

"I just can't use it."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket.

"And it worked great."

It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc.

It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. At first I was furious with this thing. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. What I love about this is the water return function.

"Exactly what I needed!"

I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is!

The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean.

"I have double stands."

Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. They more than helped me resolve my situation. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going.

"Would def recommend!"

I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Prolly also easier to use with larger hands.

"Still working great."

The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I may modify mine to be more robust. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. This gravel vacuum works very well. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I just left the spongy looking one. Returned, but agreed to try another one.
