"Love everything about it!"

I just left the spongy looking one. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! 20 gallon long also means more ADFs!

It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.

SLSON Final Thoughts

"Wish I found this sooner."

Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use.

"Hope this helps someone."

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. I should have believed the other reviews. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. I have large fish and large fish make large poop!

"But it's so cumbersome."

I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. As you can see from the photo, it works great! The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen.

It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water.

I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. Returned, but agreed to try another one. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews.

I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever.

"Both worked great."

I have large fish and large fish make large poop! It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I just pump the water directly into my sump. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing.

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. I would definitely recommend this product. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.
