"Cleans well and quickly."

Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! I would definitely recommend this product. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

Happie Shop HS Siphon Pipe Final Thoughts

"Very easy clean up!"

In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. As you can see from the photo, it works great!

2. Siphon Gravel Cleaner Aquarium Fish Tank Vacuum Water Changer

WAGA First Impressions

"I'm so happy this works!"

I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. And the price is more than reasonable. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. What I love about this is the water return function.

  • Siphon Gravel Cleaner Aquarium Fish Tank Vacuum Water Changer
  • 1. Put water changer in the fish tank on the other end of the water outlet in the bucket.
  • 2. Open the tap (without the tap can be omitted this step).
  • 3. Extruded lightly the gas chamber and adjust the inlet position to the water intake in time.
  • 4. Remove the characteristics of the feces or sundries in the fish tank.

"It really helped a lot."

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I wish i had bought this the first time. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. They more than helped me resolve my situation.

"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. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. This thing does both at the same time and quickly.

"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.

Python 10EX First Impressions

"Great customer service."

The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Returned, but agreed to try another one. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable.

"Becareful not to do this!"

What I love about this is the water return function. I may modify mine to be more robust. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff.

"I love this."

If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.
