NICREW HXS-01 First Impressions

Turned my normal 3.

So, I bought a 20 gallon long and transferred them from the 10 gallon. In saying this it's nice to not lift those heavy buckets to the top anymore. It has adjustable flow as well which helps between my gravel tank and sand tank. This little tool helped so much my bare bottom tank looks great again. I would recommend turning your filter off during the process. If you've never used a gravel vac, get this product and watch a YouTube video. I knew siphoning would be an issue,.

NICREW HXS-01 Final Thoughts

Great value!

It will suck up a little bit of sand, which is expected and acceptable. Python overkill for that size but it has it's place. Gets under decorations between plants and in corners. Do what I did, and do, and so many others have stated in their reviews. Gravel cleaning has become so easy and mess free. I hope that I do not need another but I would purchase again without hesitation. I also found that the angled attachment clogged way easy.
