Aquarium & Fish Tank Vacuums

Cleaning the gravel in your tank with an aquarium vacuum is a good way to get rid of debris that has accumulated on the aquarium floor. And it’s much more convenient than having to empty the entire aquarium and relocate your fish while you do it. If you don’t clean the gravel on a regular basis, pollutants can build up in the tank. And high concentrations of nitrites and ammonia can lead to a change in water chemistry, which is definitely not good for your fish.
It’s super easy to clean your aquarium floor with a quality fish tank vacuum like the Aqueon Siphon Vacuum with Priming Bulb Aquarium Gravel Cleaner. This useful siphon applies just the right amount of suction to lift and clean the gravel, so debris is siphoned away for disposal while the clean gravel falls back down to the bottom of the tank. Another convenient tool is Fluval’s Edge Aquarium Gravel Cleaner. This aquarium gravel vacuum is contoured so you can clean every corner of the tank easily and it comes with two cleaning heads, and even has a gravel guard to keep the gravel from getting stuck in the tube while you clean. Using a fish tank vacuum will not remove all the bacteria from your aquarium—and that’s a good thing. Some good bacteria is beneficial in maintaining a healthy environment for your fish. Just make sure to add back about 25% fresh water after cleaning the gravel. Shop the best aquarium gravel vacuums on Chewy, and you’ll have them in no time!
