"Very simple."

I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver! The trigger can be pulled on and off and it shakes the gravel for you. I just left the spongy looking one. The vacuum power is amazingly strong, yet adjustable. Even straightening this it would just close at this point again. I have a 20 gallon long tank at floor level. I have large fish and large fish make large poop!

Yokgrass Final Thoughts

"Doesn't work."

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! I've done the siphon vacuum attempts with 3 different products. I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. It's also pretty slow going, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If for some reason this one fails, I'll just buy it again. I even decimated my snail problem with this thing.

"This item is wonderful."

Hard for small hands like mine to grasp and use easily. Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I would definitely recommend this product. I only needed 2 pumps to get the flow going. I lose about 5 gallons a week due to evaporation. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. I do not write a ton of reviews but I HAVE to review this amazing time saver!

"Well worth it."

Wash the sponge out a few times and then add the micro. I would definitely recommend this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. This electric gravel vac was the best solution for my set up. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house.

"Well worth it."

As you can see from the photo, it works great! I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. You won't go wrong with this product. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. This gravel vacuum works very well. I may modify mine to be more robust.

Aquarium H2o Final Thoughts

"The thing is huge, too."

Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. This thing does both at the same time and quickly. Anyone giving this product a bad review is not using it properly. It doesn't do as good a job cleaning the gravel like a gravity suction siphon. I may modify mine to be more robust.

"No spills and SO easy!"

I learned that the hose attachment was great at removing water from the tank. The suction is great as long af you're letting gravity work. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. Cleaning a tank is the worst part of the fish owning process. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank.

"Cleaning is so EASY!"

I did add a hose from an old gravel cleaner to reach my bucket. Using a bucket to remove old water and then fill up bucket with new water. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. If you have a HUGE tank, though, it will tank you a while. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy.

Wasted an entire morning taking it apart, checking everything etc. I wish i had bought this the first time. This thing does both at the same time and quickly.

What I love about this is the water return function. I have a glass bottom aquarium with no substrate. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. In saying that I get build up of solids in certain parts of my tank. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. This was super easy to assemble and use right out of the box.

"Good purchase."

Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. I was using a 110 Volt aquarium cleaner before I purchased this one. 20 gallon long also means more ADFs! We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. I have never cleaned the rocks or changed the water in my aquarium so effortlessly. Best gadget i bought for cleaning tanks! If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video.

"I love this."

I just left the spongy looking one. If, like me, you can't get suction going on a low-tech vacuum, get this thing! They more than helped me resolve my situation. The only draw back, wish it came with a longer hose or attachment to make it longer. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. Takes me less than 10min to clean my tank with this method. The filter loads up really fast, so it's not much good for recycling water cleaning.

"But it's so cumbersome."

Most of the poop just sits on the top the sand substrate in my tank. Compared to how I was cleaning before, this made cleaning my tanks a breeze. My previous gravel vacuum from Petco was horrible. And the price is more than reasonable. I can't believe how inexpensive this most awesome thing is! So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. Maybe I'm using it wrong, but I got water EVERYWHERE.
