Description

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.

Key Benefits
  • 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.

    Aqueon Siphon

    By Elisabeth on Dec 29, 2020

    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!!!

    By Midgie on Jul 18, 2020

    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!

    Hard to use

    By John 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

    By BigBoyDad on Apr 6, 2020

    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.

    Baffling Physics

    By SoCalGirl on Jul 9, 2019 top1000Contributor

    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.

    Review on 5/20/2019

    By LMade on May 20, 2019

    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

    By Ashley on Mar 31, 2019

    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.
