Battery operated – works anywhere, anytime, cable-free
No buckets needed – cleaned water returns to aquarium
Fully submersible for tanks up to 3′ deep
Of all the electric automatic fish tank siphons you can buy, the EHEIM has got to be a favorite. Powerful suction helps remove sludge, uneaten food and fish waste from the gravel for a healthier, cleaner aquarium. After cleaning, simply remove the cartridge and rinse in the sink to dislodge extracted debris. Can be used with both gravel or sand – even bare-bottom tanks. The hassle-free design is perfect for anyone looking to clean the bottom of the tank in an efficient, easy manner.
Revolutionize water change day with this versatile, top-notch electric aquarium vacuum! This kit offers a selection of 6 multi-function attachable heads for different substrate types, suitable for sand, gravel, bare bottom aquariums (and even the glass sides and ornaments with the brush head) so you can find just the one for your needs. Nifty alert: you can even use the filter sock attachment feature to allow for filtering detritus while returning the polished water directly to the aquarium, just removing the solid waste. The shower feature allows for an oxygenating rain spray if desired, perfect in case of equipment failure. Easy to assemble with straightforward instructional video guides.
Pumping 90 GPH of water, the motor is strong enough to dislodge and remove debris without sucking up the gravel. Many folks feel it is actually superior to the leading gravel vacuums on the market, and relying on the power cable for electricity rather than on a battery means you never have to wait for a recharge. Though it is not fully submersible like the EHEIM, many feel the trade-off to be more than fair due to the overall product functionality and quality. Even comes with a replacement screen included.
4-in-1 design: substrate cleaner, algae scrubber, water changer and waste extractor

A nifty hose clip secures the tube in place while the end of the hose is designed to get into the extremity of the corner of the aquarium. Save your back and your time with this good quality vacuum that comes in at a comfortable price point.

Benefits Choosing an Electric Aquarium Vacuum
1. Clean out just what the filter can’t
Many electric aquarium vacuums can efficiently perform a revolutionary task…
… Removing solid waste only from the gravel.
Some designs have a filter sock that the dirty water passes through, leaving impurities behind, while returning clean water to the tank.
This is perfect if you just want to clean the gravel and don’t actually want to do a water change.
2. Safer Aquarium Environment
There’s no denying it:
Your aquarium gravel can get pretty gnarly in a short amount of time.
