"Don't do that!"

I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks. It works great and was fairly inexpensive compared to other similar products. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often.

Gulfstream Tropical 909004 Final Thoughts

"It's so easy."

It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. Great product and would highly recommend! Now, the water change is a piece of cake. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"Marvelous."

Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! That will show you which parts go were. I found that it's difficult to use. You won't go wrong with this product. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth.

"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.

"MONEY SAVER!"

The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. I had to put the goldfish into the other 5-gallon tank, and then do the water change. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! This is definitely a better tool overall. Once put together, I tried it immediately- it was AWESOME!

"Vs hard plastic part."

I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice.

The nuisance has certainly yielded me from cleaning tank more often. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. This hose would be over kill for 20 gals or less but I have 40 gal tanks.

It does the same work, only better and in half the time. You can't get a better product for such a decent price! I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. 5 gallons- it works amazingly well. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes.

"Exactly what I needed!"

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank.
