"Multiple uses."

The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy. Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners.

"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.

"Everything looked great."

This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning. I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I bought this one and I absolutely love it.

I liked the idea of this product when I saw it, and decided to take a chance. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. I bought this one and I absolutely love it. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues. Thank you for making my job easier. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water.

Seachem 214 First Impressions

"Just look at the pics."

I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. Sometimes I would get tank water in my mouth. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. This is definitely a better tool overall.

"Ouch, lol."

I was using a regular siphon gravel cleaner and it was painstaking. 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 think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. It quit working after the second use! I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners.

"Good purchase."

I THINK most likely it came from the factory because it had a industrial smell to it. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! You won't go wrong with this product. Great product and would highly recommend! I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. This siphon really sucks, and I'm glad I bought it. I found that it's difficult to use.

"Took him an hour."

I think this vacuum is a smart design by someone. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. The pump works very well too, two squeezes and it's siphoning.

Seachem 1469 First Impressions

"Wish were a tad longer."

Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I didn't see any grease or anything, but it smelled like it. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. I felt comfortable cleaning both my 10 gallon and 55 gallon tank. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.

"Easy to use."

This way I could empty into a 5 gallon bucket for mini water changes. But all in all, I'm relieved and happy! Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. So after I received my replacement tool, i did a water change with it. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah.

With this product I was able to do it by myself quickly and easily! Thank you for making my job easier. I'm only using this to siphon my aquarium water during water changes. The water gets going fast too so be careful lol thanks so much! You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze.

"This works really well."

Definitely not for the common colored gravel found at pet stores. 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! That will show you which parts go were. We have a snapping turtle and I was having to clean his tank 2-3 times a month. The shower head also has a nice pressure control on it to make it Spray more or less. It's really a super super great tool.

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.

8. HEEPDD Pipette Dropper, Fish Tank Water Changer with Prolonged Pipe Aquarium Pipette Feeder Water Cl...

User Ratings: 78

HEEPDD First Impressions

"Mine's just 5."

The vacuum insn't too loud which is good, and has very good suction. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. Soft tubing, large debris basket, hand pump to get it to flow. I gotta say tho that it's really powerful. I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. It pulls out the dirty water and debris but doesn't take your substrate with it.

"So I gave it a shot."

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 put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. I am very pleased with this product! It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. Suction is amazing and I don't have any issues.

Very impressed with their responsiveness as they stand behind their product. I wish i had bought this the first time. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. It is not good to let the goldfish encounter the cold water directly. And suddenly it began running again!
