"Both worked great."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

"So I gave it a shot."

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze.

"Great value!"

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I found that it's difficult to use. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I just pump the water directly into my sump. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank.

"And it keeps flowing!"

It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Returned, but agreed to try another one. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs.

Jhua Final Thoughts

"I love it."

So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible.

"I LOVE this thing."

I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank.

"IT's SO easy to use."

I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free.
