"Etc etc etc."

This gravel vacuum works very well. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"We shall see."

Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. I may modify mine to be more robust. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly.

"I recommend highly."

I just left the spongy looking one. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible.

"From aquarium to sink."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly.

"No suction."

It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. I would definitely recommend this product. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful.

"It was such a pain."

This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers.

The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

"No spills and SO easy!"

I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank.

"Cleaning is so EASY!"

I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

"I have double stands."

Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said.
