With the Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Aquarium Gravel Cleaner, performing quick water changes is super easy. The self-priming intake tube efficiently separates debris from gravel for convenient cleaning. A simple up and down motion of the intake tube quickly primes the hose to start water flow. Just the right amount of suction is applied to lift and agitate the gravel. Debris is effectively separated, pulled away with the flowing water and disposed of while the gravel falls back down to the aquarium floor. Changing the water and removing debris from gravel is part of necessary maintenance for a healthy and balanced aquarium.
Self-priming—just us a simple up and down motion to start water flow.
Includes 6-foot flexible hose with hose clip.
Helps maintain a natural balance in the aquarium environment.
Convenient self-priming intake tube makes it easier than ever.
Efficiently cleans debris from gravel for a pristine habitat.
The product arrived in excellent condition and on time. Does the job. Chewy was so great to work with too, when I ordered the wrong size at first.
Great for my planted tanks!!!

I love this small tip! I decided since it was cheap I should try it. I will never use anything else. It's suction is good and I even use it on my 30 gallon. So happy with it!
Broke right out of the box

The first time we used this product and it broke as soon as we tried to use it.
Hard to use
on Feb 23, 2020
I have no idea how you're supposed to engage the suction on this thing. I got it because the standard-sized gravel vacuum I got empties my 5.5 gallon aquarium in about 3 minutes, and I just wanted something to suck up the snail poop on the bottom. The directions say to "quickly move it up and down" or something, but that just splashes water all over the place.
I ended up shoving the smaller sucker onto the tubing of my larger gravel vacuum that has a little hand pump attached, making it actually usable. I wouldn't buy this on its own.
It fell short to my expectations

It lacks suction power. The waste doesn't even make it to the top of the tube. The water drains very slow. The hose is long but it's section is very narrow. That's a big part of the problem. I will not recommend it.
Perfect for my 2.5 gallon

I bought this for my 2.5 gallon tank that my Betta is in. It works as I expected and cleans my tank really good
WAY BIGGER THAN EXPECTED

WAY BIGGER THAN EXPECTED make sure before you buy this to read the description for the price I expect it to be smaller I ordered for a 5 gallon tank and it shows up and it is ment for 55 gallon tank so read description before you buy

This pump did not work at all, and baffled our resident scientist, as the physics should be very basic. There is no logical reason for it not to work as intended, and we checked the tubing for holes, and trouble-shooted with online videos to no avail. At least it was inexpensive.

Two of us tried to use this product vs. our previous Aqueon Siphon that contained the bulb to start the water flowing. This product only stirred up the debris on the bottom of the tank instead of removing it and is unhealthy for a fish tank environment.
Does Not Work

It worked the first time I used it to remove water, but just stirred up the debris. It did neither when trying to use a second time.
