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?

Works amazingly

I saw some reviews saying it was too big for their tank so I was worried, however this thing is awesome! I have a 3.5 gallon tank and i just cut some of the hose to make it not as long. The part that actually cleans it is a great size. This has made cleaning & water changes a breeze!!

do not purchase

This siphon is too narrow and to clean gravel. The smallest particles lodge in the head and tube. Difficult to obtain air pressure for vacuuming because both the head and tubing are too long.

Python is a great buy!

Just used this xlrg syphon this morning. I loved the fat tube so it sucks fast and so a quicker clean tank is nice. Fish were under less stress because I was in and out fast.

Great gravel vaccum

This gravel vaccum is very well made and works phenomenal. I should have went with the small one since I have a 10 gallon tank. But I just kink the hose a little so water doesn't flow out as fast. It removes water quickly and effectively

The Best One Yet

I've been using a different gravel cleaner for a while that done a decent job. After buying and trying the Python, now I know what the fuss is all about. The Python is the way to go!!

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.
