    Top Fin® Aquarium Gravel Vacuum is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 102.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have a 15gallon column aquarium. I bought the medium sized gravel vacuum. It worked great and picked up a lot of gunk from the gravel while also removing water. I also found that I could return water by putting water in a bucket and reversing the direction of the vacuum the bucket needs to be above the tank. It does return water slowly but i like that it doesn't push everything in the tank around with the force of pouring it in.....and the price was great

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and quick cleaning :-) I read the reviews about the product and decided to give it a try; I am so glad I purchased this product as it helps clean and vacuum quickly. I never got any rocks, fish, or anything caught in the vacuum and it does a decent job at emptying the tank out. I followed directions about placing a bucket at a lower spot so that once the suction gets going, the tank empties out effectively. As the other reviews stated - once you figure out the placement of the ball and get the suction going - you're all set. It was real easy and with only three or four squeezes, the process was quick. Note* Check the size tank you have before purchasing. I only have a five gallon tank, so the smaller size was fine for the area to clean. I bought the larger size vacuum without checking; I needed the smaller so I exchanged the size with no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good It did what it said it would, and has become my new best friend. I keep four goldfish, and this thing cleans up after them very easily and efficiently. It takes a few tries to get it started, and it can get clogged kinda easy, but I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right Tool For the Job If you want to maintain a healthy environment for your fish and/or you just want to have an easier time with water changes, this is the product to help you accomplish that. The vacuum did exactly what it was suppose to do and has easy instructions for its operation and assembly. I was stunned how it easily picked up and cleaned the gravel. A definite must have for any fish tank owner!

    When cleaning my aquarium I filled the middle tube full of gravel, so took the three pieces apart to get it out. Now, i don't know how to make the pump piece siphon the water. One end says out, thus assuming the other end is in. Can youase help me? I need

    Asked by: Molly B
    The "in" end should be facing the tank side and the "out" end towards the disposal side. Sometimes my priming bulb didn't work so well when it was new - it can help to put some water through it before using the bulb, to get the plastic pieces inside to move and stick appropriately.

    Which one would work for a ten gallon tank

    Asked by: Jth24
    I have a 10 gallon and the medium was too big. It sucked out too much water too quickly for me to be able to clean my substrate. Small size is more ideal.
