"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! I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. 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.

I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. I have large fish and large fish make large poop!

SLSON Final Thoughts

"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!

"Great customer service."

I have been looking for this for years. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box.

"Cleans well and quickly."

My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! At first I was furious with this thing. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank.

Tropical Science Labs 731555990057 First Impressions

"It works great!"

Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. I wish i had bought this the first time. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon.

"I totally recommend this."

What I love about this is the water return function. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used!

Fluval 11077 First Impressions

"Cleans well and quickly."

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze.

"It's a great product."

I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze.

"Marvelous."

I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"Both worked great."

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. That said, the results were excellent. And the price is more than reasonable. I may modify mine to be more robust. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use.

"Research tank set up."

The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews.

"I love this."

If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum.

  • Easy to use- Our fish tank cleaner is a powerful, effective unit at water change, It comes with an extension accessory so you won't have to get your hands wet even if the water is deep.

"I have a 4 gallon tank."

I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. I would definitely recommend this product. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! That said, the results were excellent. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

"I love it."

I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. What I love about this is the water return function. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

As you can see from the photo, it works great! I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. You won't go wrong with this product. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. This gravel vacuum works very well. I may modify mine to be more robust.
