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!!
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.
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.
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
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!!
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.
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!!
The best I’ve had by far. Works grrrrreat. As always with Chewy, shipping was fast and the price was right
this was much larger opening than expected previously purchased too small would really like to return but not worth the shipping
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.
