It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. Ignore the orang plastic clip that attaches to a bucket.

"This item is wonderful."

I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. Aside from that, i am very happy with the product and would encourage you to get it! They have plenty of suction to clean an inch or so off the ground. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again.

"That was a bit confusing."

I have a 55 gallon turtle aquarium and this works awesome for it. I got this to replace my previous siphon, which was falling apart and pretty nasty. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I let everything soak in water and washed with safe dish soap before using. You can see the debris coming up the tube like an elevator- hahah. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors.

"Great idea."

Maybe this will make me not put them off now. It's really a super super great tool. It finally broke after 10 years of use so I could justify buying a new one! This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. I put the water from the from yard into a 58 qt bin first. It does the job I need it to,very effective. I haven't tried all the function tools this kit provided.

"Nothing bad to say."

Definitely worth the money spent on the product. The shower mode make more oxygen just like an airstone. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. But It always ended up messy with water on the floor. All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. Love the item and recommend this seller!

"It's so easy."

I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. Gets the turtle poos and I dont have to empty my tank every 2 weeks! Once you practice with it some its a really nice thing to have. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running.

"So worth the money."

You can't get a better product for such a decent price! Hopefully my replacement works and I can change my review. I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. This has made it a lot easier to clean our fish tank. It's too small, just wash that baby out at the sink. The item's weren't dirty or greasy or anything, but the smell was pretty strong. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

Two Little Fishies 481549 First Impressions

"Vs hard plastic part."

Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water. I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. I could see it working for 10 gallons, especially with a little experience. It quit working after the second use! Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. Perhaps if it gets a piece of sand in the pump then it freezes or seizes. Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium.

"Would purchase again."

Almost a must have for anyone with an aquarium. I washed mine with mild dish soap and the small was gone. I put it together in a cinch and was off and running. The costomer service for this company is wonderful. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. It was quiet and I could sink it into the aquarium and stir up the substrate. I found that it's difficult to use.

"Gets it going fast."

I had to shake the substrate out of the bottom inch of the tube only twice! I LOVE IT SO MUCH I'm getting another for the fish tank at my Mom's house. Now, the water change is a piece of cake. It kept coming off and made a mess on the floor. I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. I used a plastic hose from home depot as this black hose is worthless. The best thing is I don't need to shovel gravels out to clean the bottom of the tank.

Works as advertised and was delivered faster than estimated. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. Love the item and recommend this seller! I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water.

It made the water change in our 55 gallon tank so much easier! 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. I had a manual pump before that used suction pressure to suck out all the water. Maybe this will make me not put them off now. I have several divided tanks and I struggle to get the normal syphon in to clean. I wanted another one but amazon just wants me to return it.

Python is good too but this is fast, easy and light. Water changing+ vacuuming, you can use it as powerhead to make more water movement. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. I found that it's difficult to use. Makes cleaning my daughter's turtle tank much, much easier. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze.
