"I love this."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I have large fish and large fish make large poop! Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. The costomer service for this company is wonderful.

WALOTAR Final Thoughts

"Lesson learned."

You fill the chamber with filter substrate. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. The last two pictures display the suction cup with its perforated screen inside it. I should have believed the other reviews. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. They more than helped me resolve my situation. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal.

2. Python No Spill Clean and Fill Aquarium Gravel Tube Hose Extension, 10-Feet

Python 10EX First Impressions

"Great customer service."

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. It siphons the water out of the aquarium very quickly. Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Returned, but agreed to try another one. It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable.

"Becareful not to do this!"

What I love about this is the water return function. I may modify mine to be more robust. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. Maybe if another piece was included to attach to the right after the shutoff.

Python 30GT First Impressions

"Another tip."

I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. It just takes a little bit of trial and error on your part.

"Great value!"

A little tricky with the hand pump. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I'm thinking of other ways this could be used! I would definitely recommend this product. It's well worth reaching out to Nicrew to exchange or find a resolution. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive!

Adnikia First Impressions

"It's so easy."

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! Its made the water changes on my 55 gallon and 20 tall so easy. What I love about this is the water return function. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

"4- Finally a solution!"

This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. The water gets filtered in the chamber and then RETURNED BACK TO THE TANK! Next time, I'll lay towels down around the tank. It would get clogged with leaves and such but that's expected.

"Hope that made sense!"

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! Idk what other people are talking about that it barely pulls. It got clogged with a small plastic container that got caught in the disposal. The telescoping tube will extent to permit a larger tank to be effectively cleaned. I wish i had bought this the first time. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier.

"It works great."

Ohh I also use it to add water to my system. Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. I also used this LinkinsLegacy cleaner in my kitchen sink. You won't go wrong with this product. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning.

"Debris gets sucked up."

Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while.

"It really helped a lot."

Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review.

I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! I can't believe a marvelous thing such as this could be so inexpensive!
