Aqua KT First Impressions

"No doubt, it is worth it."

I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. It does the job I need it to,very effective. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it.

Aqua KT Final Thoughts

"Wish I found this sooner."

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily.

"So not too durable."

The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. The speed of water removal works for cleaning an occupied tank. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Great product and would highly recommend!

"Research tank set up."

The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. It doesn't try to eat the rocks like the triangular head does. I wish i had bought this the first time. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots.

"No doubt, it is worth it."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions. Love the item and recommend this seller! Simple, lightweight design does exactly what it says it will do. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away.

"I just can't use it."

Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! It got clogged a few times and i had to take it to the sink and run water through it. It was easy to use and really did the job! I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"I purchased two of these."

It does the job I need it to,very effective. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. Great product and would highly recommend! It quit working after the second use! It does the same work, only better and in half the time. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products.

"I will try again."

Best fish maintenance product I have purchased. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I take that off to hit the fine crevices. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided.

"Works so easily."

Now, the water change is a piece of cake. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. That will show you which parts go were.
