What is the inner diameter of the hose. I'm am looking for a siphon tube and hose that I can connect to a small exterior canister filter to do gravel vacuuming in between water changes.
Answer by ChewyApr 11, 2019
The inside diameter of the mini and small hose is 1/4 of an inch and 1/2 of an inch for the medium, large, and extra large hose.

How long (in feet) is the tube?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2019
The hose is 6 feet long.

What is the diameter of the hose on the large? Will it work with the python bulb?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2017
The hose is 0.5 inches in diameter. This product is designed to work with the Python Squeeze Stressless Siphon Starter.

Can I use this to refill my tank with new water too?

Not for small tank

Bought this based on the size tank it is for. I have a 30. This said 20-55. Pickup tube almost as height of tank bulky and takes up room when trying to clean not easy to use in a small tank. Suction to powerful for a 30. Not enough time to clean before it has all the water out. A waste of money on my part.

Python for the win

I purchased the small and medium gravel vacs. I use the small one on my 10G which works perfectly. The flow is perfect, I have plenty of time to gravel vac and it has a longer tube on it so I don't have to get my hands wet. I tried the medium vac on the 10G it was way too fast. So, I use the medium on my 20G long and 75G if I just need some water in a bucket to clean filters. Otherwise on the 75G I use the python water change system that you hook to the faucet. I love python products and chewy! Highly recommend!!

Perfect for medium to large aquariums

Works perfectly for my tank. Not too big and not too small. I did add a tube extension so it doesn't come out of the bucket.

Works great for hard to reach areas.

Good for smaller/shallower tanks and those that have smaller spaces to reach. Helps clean the sand bed around the rocks without disturbing anything else, and too small to suck fish into.

It works!!!!!!!!

having used a gravel siphon in an aquarium years ago, I purchased an oversized siphon to use to clean debris from a horse water tank. The tank is too large to dump over. The siphon worked beautifully! It sucked up the debris and did not clog as the dirt washed away with the water. Excellent product that goes beyond the aquarium application! Additional benefit--it was very inexpensive! Thanks Chewy

can confirm, it is a gravel vacuum

it's definitely not as strong I expected it to be, but I'm unsure if whether or not the suction is bad, or normal, as this is my first time having an aquarium. it's good at getting particles out of the water column, and can vacuum my gravel nicely, but it isn't strong enough to suck the detritus off my wood. it does fine when I brush the debris off the wood & let them float around, though. it appears to be quite slow, it takes about 15 minutes for me to change 25% of my ten gallon, but again, I have no prior experience with gravel vacs or aquariums, so seems alright to me. :)

I would give it 10 Stars if I could!

Right now, I honestly feel like I had never really cleaned my substrate before! Yes, I own a couple of different vacuums, but one has a very short nozzle (sucks all the substrate in, but doesn't really clean it), and the other was too big for my nano tanks (3.5 up to 20 gallons). This mini vacuum is it PERFECT for me! I felt just like those pro fish keepers on YouTube! I worked on three different tanks today, and they look spotless now. I can't wait to do the other 5!

Tube is super skinny, makes suction slow

I ordered the small syphon for my 10 gal, I haven't used it for vacuuming waste yet since my tank is currently under construction, but I was testing it out and the water came out super slow when I was draining water as a practice run, the small syphon is probably good for getting into hard to reach places in med sized tank tbh, I'll probably size up to actually drain water or just use cups
