So I had trouble getting this to work too because I was used to other aquarium siphons. I was able to get it work and it does work well but I had to watch a video on Aqueon’s channel before it worked. The trick is to fully submerge it up to the blue cap and then shake the siphon while in the water, up and down like you’re shaking a pen to get ink out.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this for my 3 gallon tank. It was very hard to get it to start siphoning and once it did start to siphon the suction was so minimal it did not clean my tank. I followed their instruction for getting it started and that didn't work. I started it the same way you start the larger vacuums in the same brand and that worked. The suction was so weak, that when I finished my water looked worse than before I "cleaned" it. Do not buy this product.
it doesn’t work

I know how siphons are supposed to work, and we did everything right but this thing does not physically work. No vacuum is created. We had to end up filling the tube and turning it upside down, but that was so slow so in the end we ended up using buckets anyway. Don’t waste your money.

Perhaps I got the wrong size for our beta tank, but I was not able to get this vacuum to do anything.
Too wide for small tanks

The head of the vacuum is too wide and the hose unmanageable
