  • Perfect for me and my tank!

    By on

    I have a 3.5 gallon tank so I purchased this with their python pro clean gravel washer siphon kit (mini) and attached it to that and it did the job perfectly! My little tank was clean in minutes! Thank you!

  • Fantastic Product !!!!!!!!!!!!

    By on

    I purchased a different brand, from this setup, recently & I'm new to aquarium keeping. I could not squeeze the plastic bulb with the set due to arthritic hands. Well, my Python Squeeze bulb & Python, size small, vacuum came today & I am so thrilled that the bulb is made of soft enough rubber that I can easily start the siphon with one hand !!! And the size small vacuum is PERFECT in size for my 5 gallon tank.THANK YOU Python & thank you Chewy for handling this remarkable set.

  • Useful product

    By on

    I have never used a siphon cleaner before to clean my fish tanks; they were all small enough that I could just clean the tank from top to bottom. But I decided to try it, as I was told it was better for the fish not to clean out all the water at once. This product makes it easy to start siphoning the water from the tank without having to get near the dirty water.

  • Definitely worth it

    By on

    Unless you like getting a chef's taste of your fish's bath water, this takes the stress out of getting suction going. A bit expensive knowing that constructing one yourself is easy, but unlike home made alternatives it deals well with draining out excess water so you can cleanly uncap it and position the tube. Would be nice if it had more sized tube connectors.

  • This is must!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    This makes water changes a breeze! A few squeezes and water starts flowing, and when the bucket needs dumped it takes another squeeze to halt flow for a moment to lift this bulb into the tank, and when placed back into the bucket it starts flowing again immediately. It also weighs down the end of the tubing so it stays where it is supposed to. Really happy with how easy it makes things! Before this I would always end up with water everywhere trying to get the syphon started.

  • Does what its suppose to

    By on

    Used the 1/2 connector at the end of the Python hose, 2 pumps starts the suction. Quick and easy. This is not to be installed in-line like other models, it goes at the end of the hose only to work without problems.

  • This item sucks!!!

    By on

    So this review is 100% solely based on this item. Item did arrive on time, along with most of my order. Upon opening the box I discovered that there were 3 different attachments for this pump none of which coincided with any of the others I believe the sizes were a 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Meaning I needed to use different size tubing in order to perform the water changes. The sole purpose for which I had purchased this, was to make water changes easier. So after quite a bit of jerry-rigging and being the MacGyver that I am, and utilizing spare parts and connectors that I had previously I made it work. Well for one water change that is!!! It kept disconnecting and did not want to stay So this review is 100% solely based on this item. Item did arrive on time, along with most of my order.
