"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.

"Totally recommend."

I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I really love this gravel cleaner for water changing and gravel cleaning. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it! I got this one until my son broke my siphon. So this thing has alot of parts and poor instructions.

"YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM."

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. I got this one until my son broke my siphon. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. So much better than my smaller python.

"Ouch, lol."

When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. Definitely like the bulb for starting suction easily. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. I wish i had bought this the first time.

"Ouch, lol."

This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. Maybe this will make me not put them off now. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice!

"It was easy to assemble."

Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. The easy siphoning of fish debris used to be a pain to do. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Best fish maintenance product I have purchased. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful.

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! I'd recommend this, but it just takes a little practice. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. It quit working after the second use! I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing.

"Cleaning is so EASY!"

I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. My prior one took several squeezes and I had to hold a finger over the outlet.

With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place.

I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty.

"For that price."

You won't go wrong with this product. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. When I used it to get the water out, I found out it has pump function. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.
