"4- Finally a solution!"

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I found that it's difficult to use. As you can see from the photo, it works great! I just pump the water directly into my sump. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.

Koller Products TM1096 Final Thoughts

"But it's so cumbersome."

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. And the price is more than reasonable. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE.

"I LOVE this thing."

I should have believed the other reviews. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. Returned, but agreed to try another one. I just pump the water directly into my sump. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning.

Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well.

"Fantastic."

The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I found that it's difficult to use. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly.

"Still working great."

It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. That said, the results were excellent. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

"Sweat and hardwork."

This thing does both at the same time and quickly. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new.

"Research tank set up."

It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. At first I was furious with this thing.

Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy.

20 gallon long also means more ADFs! Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level.

"It is fine for my needs."

Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it.

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.

"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.
