"No doubt, it is worth it."

Maybe this will make me not put them off now. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. Best fish maintenance product I have purchased. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. This is definitely a better tool overall. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. I got this one until my son broke my siphon.

Friendly Fish Company Final Thoughts

"Love everything about it!"

And suddenly it began running again! I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. That will show you which parts go were. - Multiple head attachment for different tasks. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it.

"This works really well."

I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless.

"Don't do that!"

I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well.

4. uxcell Fish Tank Hand Squeeze Cleaning Water Change Cleaner Pump, 1.6m

uxcell a13120400ux1121 First Impressions

"Fantastic."

It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. The water from the front yard garden hose is cold.

"Oh my gosh!"

This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. It was easy to use and really did the job! It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. It quit working after the second use! Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

"Multiple uses."

I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I wish i had bought this the first time. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one!

  • Aquarium Gravel Cleaner with Clips, Quick & Easy Assembly, Long Nozzle Manual Water Pump, Great for Frequent Water Changes, Fish Tank Cleaning Kit for Saltwater and Freshwater
  • ✔ ALL INCLUSIVE AQUARIUM CLEANING KIT --- Everything you need to properly and effortlessly change your aquarium water is included in the all-in-one gravel cleaning kit by SunGrow. Not only do you receive the long nozzle, durable Rhinox tubing, priming bulb and discharge hose, but also a pair of high-quality mounting clips.
  • ✔ ELIMINATES UNPLEASANT FISHY SMELL --- We all love the look of our pet fish, but the fishy smell is a different story. The best way to keep your aquarium fresh is by regularly cleaning the gravel and substrate of debris. Fish waste, excess minerals and leftover food can get caught and begin to cause an unpleasant odor.
  • ✔ EXTRA LONG, FLEXIBLE NOZZLE --- Because the flexible vacuum nozzle in the practical SunGrow Aquarium Maintenance Kit is an extra long 4.5 feet (135cm), it makes cleaning your fish tank even easier. With such a long nozzle, there is no need to worry about getting your sleeves wet or spilling water.
  • ✔ EASY TO USE MOUNTING CLIPS --- Each aquarium water changer is easily mounted to the rim of your fish tank or bucket using the included pair of blue tube clips. With the help of these efficient mounting clips, any 8mm to 16mm hose or tubing is firmly held in place for quick and easy tank cleaning.
  • ✔ USEFUL FOR A VARIETY OF SUBSTRATES --- More than just a simple gravel cleaner, the easy prime suction pipe works on many types of tanks and different kinds of aquarium or terrarium substrates. The high quality siphon works on quartz gravel, sand, vermiculite and crushed coral for reef and brackish water tanks.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"That was a bit confusing."

It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. You won't go wrong with this product. I wish i had bought this the first time. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. The best thing is I don't need to shovel gravels out to clean the bottom of the tank. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month.

6. Marine Aquarium - A Virtual Undersea Paradise

Encore Software First Impressions

"Wish were a tad longer."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product.

"This was perfect."

I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using.
