Description

With the Aqueon Siphon Vacuum with Priming Bulb Aquarium Gravel Cleaner, performing quick water changes is super easy. This useful siphon efficiently separates debris from gravel for convenient cleaning. A simple pump of the priming bulb 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
  • Includes a convenient priming bulb to help start water flow.
  • Includes 6-foot flexible hose, hose clip, intake tube and priming bulb pump
  • Helps maintain a natural balance in the aquarium environment.
  • Efficiently cleans debris from gravel for a pristine habitat.
  • Large enough for aquariums that range 15-55 gallons.
Precautions

For Glass Aquariums Only. Do not us on acrylic, plexiglass, or any surface other than glass. Do not use on dry surfaces. Rinse pad with tap water before and after each use.

    Excellent addition to my cleaning arsenal

    By Christo on Feb 25, 2021

    I had a previous version of the without the priming bulb, which worked fine, but often scared the fish, because you had to quickly plunge the collector tube into the water multiple times to get the suction to begin working...sometimes difficult to do. The Priming Bulb makes all the difference! With a couple of quick squeezes, the siphoning starts, and you can begin cleaning the gravel. Works great, even when the water level of the tank gets low.

    Small Siphon for Quick Water Changes

    By Shelly on Jan 18, 2021

    Bought this small siphon for maneuverability after changing to sand substrate. I have used it probably 10 times and only experienced one time that it didn’t prime in the first 3 pumps. The suction is a little low for getting some of the heavier debris, but it does the job.

    By Jrop on Jan 25, 2021

    Gravel/Siphon

    By Piper5mths on Oct 13, 2020

    I bought the Python one bc the one I had was cheaply made. The Python works excellent it has great suction to clean the gravel. It is alittle awkward to use at first bc it’s stiff not very pliable. Once you get the hang of it you’ll love it !! I absolutely recommend giving it a try!!

    Hard to use

    By RobnKit on Jul 23, 2020

    This pump is very hard to use. The part that holds the tube that goes into the bucket doesn't fit and it keeps coming out of the bucket making a mess on the floor. It's also hard to pump the water to get a good flow started. I found it's better to just take out the water off the top and change and clean it that way.

    It was damaged when I received it.

    By Meemo on May 27, 2020

    Doesn't suction at all. There is no plastic piece inside the tube to stop items from being sucked into the hose (like, idk, fish). worst of all is the bulb was cracked. Of course didn't realize it until I was already siphoning a large tank so I tried to tape it up but it didn't work. Dang thing leaked all over the floor before I noticed This is an item I'm going to need to go to a store and buy to make sure that it's not damaged. since I used it I don't think I can return it so I'll just take it apart and use the hose on it for another aquarium application.

    Aquarium gravel cleaner

    By Prettylongtail on Aug 1, 2020

    Love the hose and cleaner tube good size is fast. But bulb to make it prime just didn’t work for me back to the old sucking on the tube holding finger over end to dump. Fills a five gal tub fast! Just wish the bulb worked.

    Big but works!

    By GreatNeptune on Aug 10, 2020

    I recommend this for your larger tanks! They do have a smaller size as well. The siphon bulb is a game changer.

    Cool item for cleaning

    By Leonna on Apr 16, 2020

    This is huge. I think i got too big for my tank. Im having trouble using it but likely its me. Seems very nice made I accidentally ordered two and i am giving one to a friend. I wondered why the price was more than i thought but then i received two and figured it out. Oh well. I have a good gift since i bought two!
