"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.

"We shall see."

I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I like the fact it is not draining the water when you vacuum. Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. I may modify mine to be more robust. Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy.

I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. This gravel vacuum works very well.

"Another tip."

Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Connections leak over time so I have to put some silicon joint while I join them. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable.

Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I don't use the sponge and filter pad that came with the device. I was worried I would have to keep unplugging and plugging in through out cleaning.

"Sweat and hardwork."

This thing does both at the same time and quickly. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. Within a half an hour my tank almost looked brand new.

"Wish I found this sooner."

It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I highly recommend this product for all aquarium keepers. I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. I would get suction for a few seconds and then it would trickle to nothing.

Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. I have a 29g aquarium and it does suction quickly as others have said. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again.

"I recommend the vacuum."

I love the extendable attachments for my larger tanks. It's easy to put together, easy to use, easy to clean. I fell in love with African Dwarf Frogs when they were in a 10 gallon in my kitchen. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I got a bunch of sludge out of the bottom of my aquarium. It filters out the solids and returns the water to the tank.
