"Well worth it."

I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls.

"I totally recommend this."

This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. And the price is more than reasonable.

"It comes today."

I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy.

"But it's so cumbersome."

I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.

SunGrow First Impressions

"IT's SO easy to use."

If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. I wish i had bought this the first time. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Doesn't work."

This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"Great customer service."

I just left the spongy looking one. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use.

"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.

  • COODIA Electric Auto Aquarium Gravel Cleaner,4 in 1 Automatic Sludge Extractor Water Changer for Fish Plant Tanks,DC12V Safe Voltage 18W
  • 4 in 1 design that it combines the gravel cleaner, water changer, alge cleaner and waste extractor. Ideal for complete aquarium cleaning or quick spot maintenance
  • With the pump installed close to the end allows you to clean the tanks with lower water leavel compared with other cleaners.
  • A strong pump easily removes particles from topmost layer of substrate without disturbing the bottom layer of gravel.
  • The filter bag collects the particles and dirts while the clear water is returned to the tank. Easy to take apart for cleaning.
  • Unlike the other electric cleaners, this COODIA grave cleaner runs on DC 12V, which is safe voltage provided by an adapter( the input of adapter is 110V)

"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.

Emma Mall First Impressions

"I LOVE this thing."

I have large fish and large fish make large poop! I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation.

"Debris gets sucked up."

I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. As you can see from the photo, it works great! So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Returned, but agreed to try another one. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going.

"So I gave it a shot."

The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. You won't go wrong with this product. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I would definitely recommend this product. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"If so hit helpful."

I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I have been looking for this for years. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products.

"That's all i want."

I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.
