"Fantastic."

I have been looking for this for years. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. At first I was furious with this thing. I should have believed the other reviews. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs!

STARROAD-TIM Final Thoughts

"Cleans well and quickly."

I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. If it isnt working for you, try without the micro pad in and do a great clean. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

STARROAD-TIM Final Thoughts

"That's all i want."

I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. 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. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process.

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution.

"Very simple."

As you can see from the photo, it works great! I just pump the water directly into my sump. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. I may modify mine to be more robust.

UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"I LOVE this thing."

I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank.

"GRAVEL CLEANER works!"

If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank.

Corner Biz Aquarium First Impressions

"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.

"Just saying."

I am so glad to have this for my fish care. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable.

"I love this."

If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

I just pump the water directly into my sump. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore.

"Lesson learned."

I would definitely recommend this product. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. I love this setup and how easy it was to use.
