"Great hose."

I pushed the tip down into the substrate and pulled the ditritus out right away. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. It quit working after the second use! So much better than my smaller python. Definitely worth the money spent on the product.

UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"Finally, I found this."

I did not receive the glass scraper with mine, but don't think I'd use it anyways. Easy peasy and clean up is a breeze. Great product and would highly recommend! Great product and would highly recommend! I just don't know why I didn’t order it sooner. Once you get the tank water flowing out of the tubing. The best thing is I don't need to shovel gravels out to clean the bottom of the tank.

2. 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.

"I love it."

All it takes is a couple of pumps and the water starts flowing. The bucket clamp also doesn't work very well. I even separated the tubes and used it to clean my small 5 gallon! Like I said can splice more hose on to reach to the outside or wherever. I may still return this BUT I'm going to try once again. I have gone through two others and they lasted about a month. Most of the time I just took out half tank then top off with fresh water.

"But it's so cumbersome."

It is simple, but not without being a very thoughtfully designed product. Instead, I would suck from the end of the tube until water came out. Product arrived really quick and is packaged nicely. Had a minor issue which their service department addressed immediately. Prolly also easier to use with larger hands. I did have to cut one of the tubes to make it a little shorter but that was easy. Product seems to be well made and should work a long time with reasonable care.

"This was perfect."

And kind of shook it and tested it by plugging it in. The suction tube is plenty long to reach all over in the'hard to reach' spots. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. This one doesn't lose suction, and is easy to use. It eliminates spilled and dripping water on my carpet and floors. Definitely worth the money spent on the product. It did however do a better job than the gravel vac i was using before.

"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.

"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.
