Gravel and Aquarium Vaccuum

Just wondering -- does anyone have one of these?

http://www.fish-supplies.com/aquariu...uipment=538485

If so, are you pleased? I am thinking of using this for algae removal without having to remove too much water.

Todd

Why spend $20+ when you could just do this http://www.fish-supplies.com/aquariu...uipment=709581 for less than half.

If you have a sandy substrate and I think you do from a photo i saw you post in the photoalbum then I would say you dont want to vac the substrate anyway.

You could use a 1/2" or 3/4" hose to syphon clean the live rock you have but you dont need to syphon your sand bed.

That is precisely what I was thinking of using it for.

I'm going to go ahead and pick one up tonight to vaccuum the sump out. I'll let you know how it works.
