"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.

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.

"But it's so cumbersome."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I have been looking for this for years. Putting the thing together is really intuitive and easy. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer.

"Quality materials."

Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. You won't go wrong with this product. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"Works great."

I am very satisfied with how the aquarium cleaner operates and highly recommend it. I am so glad to have this for my fish care. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going.

It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. That said, the results were excellent. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I learned that the best control was to shorten the device as much as possible. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

I just pump the water directly into my sump. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation.

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

"It is fine for my needs."

I found that it's difficult to use. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. So I use the NICREW power vac in between water changes and it works great! I just pump the water directly into my sump.
