  • It stopped working

    By on

    It stopped working after several times perhaps 3 or 4. Anyway maybe I'm doing something wrong ? I gif it the benefit of the doubt. But I don't have the patience to squeeze it I don't know how many times, and wait for the water to flow. So it's back to old school siphon with the mouth again. Way faster.

  • Not all that happy

    By on

    This siphon seems to work well at the start. But every time I stop it to empty my bucket, it won't restart. I have "practiced" by just filling a bucket and moving the water to another bucket. It works unless I stop it but it will not restart until it sits a while.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cleaning a tank has never been easier!

    By on

    I had bought the Python No Spill Clean and Fill Aquarium Maintenance System years ago to have a easier clean for my turtle tank but always attached it to my sink. When it started cloging up my sinks I could no longer use it. I finally found the Python Squeeze attachment so I bought it right away. It was so easy to assemble and works out great!! So glad i found this attachment.
