"Debris gets sucked up."

Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I just pump the water directly into my sump. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank.

SSRIVER Final Thoughts

"The primer pump works."

I wish i had bought this the first time. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"It works great."

It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I may modify mine to be more robust. And the price is more than reasonable.

Sera 8560 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend this."

What I love about this is the water return function. Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. This gravel vacuum works very well. With this 12 Volt aquarium cleaner that apprehension is eliminated. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said.

"Turned my normal 3."

I wish i had bought this the first time. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. I am so glad to have this for my fish care. They more than helped me resolve my situation. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"Still working great."

So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I had a couple of problems as it was the first time I have used anything like this.

"Great value!"

The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. I've gone though dozens of aquarium cleaning gadgets and products over the years. I have been looking for this for years. At first I was furious with this thing. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.

  • BILIEASY Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Water Changer with Powered Filter Durable Easy Vacuum Fish Tank Cleaner (Blue)
  • EASY AQUARIUM GRAVEL CLEANER- Clean easy to operate without any efforts. With on/off flow control tap design, it is easy and convenient to use. Make it easy and fun to change water in a fish tank
  • MULTI-FUCTION POWERFUL PURPOSE-Water changer, sand washing and decontamination this fish tank cleaner can be used for multiple purpose, 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.
  • EFFECTIVE POROUS SCREEN-The water inlet is equipped with porous filter net, which can effectively prevent the suction of sand, stone, fish, water grass, etc. in the process of changing water. Meanwhile, it can let the water, fish dung and other sundry matter in the tank come out through the suction hose of filter net, and play the role of changing water, washing sand and decontamination.
  • LONG HANDLE EASY HOLD- Lengthened hose for all sizes of fish tank attach 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.
  • KEEPING A BETTER ENVIRONMENT- Easy to Install & Use: Just connect all the accessories together one by one, it also come with a manual. It is ideal for water changing and gravel cleaning, giving your fish a nice living environment.

"Marvelous."

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. 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.

"Great price!"

In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. The assembly instructions for this unit are unquestionably clear and precise.

"Becareful not to do this!"

I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean.

"Well worth it."

Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I would definitely recommend this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house.

"Then you vacuum."

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going.

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.

8. Lee S Aquarium & Pet Ultimate Super Pump

Lee's S11580 First Impressions

"Hope this helps."

Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I would definitely recommend this product.

Python First Impressions

"Very easy clean up!"

The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again.

Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Which was why I'm so glad I got this one. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks.

"I recommend highly."

The hardest thing to do is wrap up the cord to store it after use. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean.
