"Becareful not to do this!"

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Returned, but agreed to try another one. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up.

"Still working great."

And the price is more than reasonable. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I knew siphoning would be an issue,. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning. I would definitely recommend this product. My tank was beyond maintenance work with alot of decay and algae.

"Sweat and hardwork."

In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part.

"Research tank set up."

It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. At first I was furious with this thing.

"They are very well made."

I found that it's difficult to use. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! I should have believed the other reviews. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! I would recommend this due to the fantastic job it has provided for my needs.

"Cleans well and quickly."

I found that it's difficult to use. You won't go wrong with this product. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing. I love this setup and how easy it was to use. At first I was furious with this thing. This is how I got the NICREW power vac to work with sand and large poop. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation.

"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.

"Just saying."

Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive! It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. You fill the chamber with filter substrate. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium.

"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.

"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.

"Good purchase."

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff. 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. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The suction is great and the valve at the end is perfect.

"From aquarium to sink."

I would definitely recommend this product. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I just pump the water directly into my sump. Needless to say there was a lot of muc on the bottom. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system.

"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.
