    Leaks in my tank

    It works okay until it gets too full and leaks back into the tank.

    Best thing I have found to keep my 50 gal tank algae and waste free in the gravel with weekly use and not have to siphon water out and add more. Been there done that. Time saver. Siphon and mesh container easily cleaned and stored.

    Questioning

    By on

    I’m wondering if I am using it wrong or what I feel like it takes an hour to clean the tiniest bit I have 2 turtles my waters looks great but every time I do a clean it fogs up and settles hence buying this product but I still got the dog up and couldn’t clean the gravel completely..does anyone else have this issue ?

    underpowered.

    By on

    the device really does not give very good as suction. Also as others have noted it fills the tank with a very fine silt. I doubt that is healthy. I will now I have to deal with this silt covering everything in the tank. I think an old-fashioned siphon would be better.

    This is a great buy

    Easy to use! Works as advertised. Not sure if it’s saved me time in terms of tank maintenance, but I have used less water.

    Life saver

    I love this thing. It was bigger than I expected but works great. Still not too big for my 5 gallon, and doesn’t make a mess since it pushes the water back out as it vacuums. Prevents me from having to remove water I don’t want to remove while getting any sunken pellets out. Wonderful!

    Great daily cleaner

    By on

    This gravel cleaner works amazingly well. I’m new to fish and this tool already seems to be one of my “most have” pieces for ease of cleaning.
