Description

Aqueon Siphon Vacuum Aquarium Gravel Cleaner, performing quick water changes is super easy. The self-priming intake tube efficiently separates debris from gravel for convenient cleaning. A simple up and down motion of the intake tube quickly primes the hose to start water flow. Just the right amount of suction is applied to lift and agitate the gravel. Debris is effectively separated, pulled away with the flowing water and disposed of while the gravel falls back down to the aquarium floor. Changing the water and removing debris from gravel is part of necessary maintenance for a healthy and balanced aquarium.

    Maintenance is necessary part of good aquarium keeping. Routine water changes and pulling debris from gravel helps to maintain a natural balance in the aquarium environment. Aqueon Siphon Vac gravel cleaner can help to make this job easier and take less time.

  • Completely submerge intake tube in aquarium.

  • Gravel Cleaning Recommendation
  • Begin to move the intake tube in an up and down motion, in and out of the gravel.
  • Gravel and debris will be pulled into the intake tube.
  • Allow debris to separate from gravel and pull away with water in the hose.

  • NOTE: Aqueon Siphon Vac gravel cleaners are ideal for routine water changes. By removing and replacing 25% of your aquarium water every three to four weeks, greatly reduces the amount of nitrate, phosphate and debris that can build up.

    It is not recommended to completely drain an active aquarium. This greatly reduces the amount of beneficial microscopic bacteria that helps keep your aquarium balanced.
