"I recommend the vacuum."

It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks!

  • IREENUO Fish Tank Gravel Vacuum Cleaning, Electric Aquarium Gravel Cleaning, Battery Operated Siphon Pump Water Changer with 3 Pcs Replaceable Mesh Bags
  • MULTIFUNCTION GRAVEL CLEANING TOOL --- IREENUO aquarium vacuum is the ideal cleaning tool, which is a 3 in 1 multifunction siphon pump for cleaning gravel & algae and changing water. Make your cleaning fish tank effortless!
  • AUTOMATIC WORK BY BATTERY --- Different from traditional cleaner, which requires manual pressing to work, IREENUO fish tank gravel cleaner is powered by 2 batteries (2 C/LR14), which is faster and more convenient. But please don't use it continuously for more than 30min to preventing motor damaging.
  • EASY TO USE --- The aquarium gravel siphon can be installed easily according to the icons. To get the strongest suction, please keep the current water level between the min and max water level on the handle before you press the power button. Only that can it work with strong suction at any water level.
  • ADJUSTABLE TUBE LENGTH --- Three tubes of different lengths can be freely combined with a tube buckle, the maximum length of the combination of the tube is 73cm. Suitable for small, medium, and large aquariums.
  • ❗ ❗ ❗ NOTE --- To make sure the service life of the fish tank siphon pump, do not use it continuously for more than 30 min and do not sink the battery compartment into the water. To make sure strong suction, must keep the current water level in the min and max water level line before you press the power button.
  • The excretion of fish feces and the accumulation of metabolic waste from aquatic plants lead to turbid water quality in fish tanks, which affects fish life.
  • Garbage hidden in the gravel is difficult to clean, powerful suction of cleaner can absorb them by water flow. You can cleans the fine impurities in the gravel quickly and easily.
  • The traditional manual water changer is time-consuming and laborious, which is inefficient. An electric fish tank cleaner can help you drain the water in the tank faster.

"If so hit helpful."

You won't go wrong with this product. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.

"It is fine for my needs."

Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

"Great for 75 gallon."

It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. What I love about this is the water return function. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"I recommend the vacuum."

It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is!

"Great price!"

I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up.

"Great price!"

I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. They more than helped me resolve my situation. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive!

"At about 2."

Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! I may modify mine to be more robust. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while.

"Cleans well and quickly."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"I am so glad I did."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"And it keeps flowing!"

This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. At first I was furious with this thing. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae.

It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. And the price is more than reasonable. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process.

"Hope this helps."

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. I may modify mine to be more robust. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.
