"Cleans well and quickly."

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.

KASAN Final Thoughts

"I just can't use it."

The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process.

SunGrow First Impressions

"It works great!"

I should have believed the other reviews. A little tricky with the hand pump. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place.

  • SunGrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit with Priming Bulb, 2-Minutes to Assemble, Facilitates Frequent Water Changes, Perfect for Cleaning Small Fish Tanks
  • ✔ GOOD AQUARIUM KEEPING AT YOUR DOORSTEP — No more scooping up dirty water with a pail; that can be messy. SunGrow Aquarium Cleaning Pump kit is a system with a hand controller that helps you clear out your tank efficiently and quickly by having the features you definitely need! This is suitable for maintaining both freshwater and saltwater tanks. Each part is meticulously designed to give you the best aquarium cleaning experience you can possibly have.
  • ✔ ROUTINE MAINTENANCE MADE EASY — Every SunGrow fish tank substrate cleaner comes with a short nozzle, nozzle net, flexible standard tubing, operation/pump bulb and discharge hose. While all these parts can be adjusted and modified as per your needs, the operation bulb or the hand starter is its unique component that sets it apart from other similar items in the market.
  • ✔ FREQUENT WATER CHANGE ENSURES HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT — Without water changes, your fish health may have an adverse impact. But, with the kink-resistant siphon cleaner by SunGrow, you can do it frequently and it will not take much of your time. This no-spill system is made high quality to not let aquarium fish get hurt or even disturbed while it is being used to transfer water.
  • ✔ 2-MINUTES TO SETUP — The short nozzle feature of SunGrow Aquarium sand and substrate cleaner is perfect when you want to replenish or drain water out of your tank. Just place the nozzle in your tank. For convenience, attach it with a suction cup. This will make work easier for you because you don’t need to hold it while draining out water! Press on, or squeeze the pump bulb 5 to 7 times and the water will start to flow out of the nozzle. See the description below for more details.
  • ✔ HASSLE-FREE STORAGE --- The flexible siphon pump helps preventing the small gravel and debris from going into the hose. Not only that, after it has done the deed, it won’t give you a hard time thinking where you would store it, as it can be placed practically anywhere! With its strategic portable design, you can keep it in any place you want where you can easily access it the next time you need it.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"I just can't use it."

If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK!

I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. But this thing is amazing the suction is crazy! It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank.

HEEPDD Final Thoughts

"It has two connectors."

So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light.

"Would def recommend!"

Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it.

DERCLIVE 1097194/120204RJQKGB Final Thoughts

"It's a great product."

I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. That said, the results were excellent. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing!

BETTA Jnk070 First Impressions

"THEN I FOUND THIS!"

The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. And the price is more than reasonable. I would definitely recommend this product. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands.

BETTA Jnk070 Final Thoughts

"Exactly what I needed!"

I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. I found that it's difficult to use. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. I just pump the water directly into my sump.

"Hope that made sense!"

This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium.

I wish i had bought this the first time. That said, the results were excellent. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. I found that it's difficult to use. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning.

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK!

I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily.
