gravel vac ?

I'm over the buckets so i'm leaping forward. I have heard lots about the python gravel vac but only one place here has it and they have to order the larger one I will need and that will take 2 weeks. Everyone seems to have the Aqueon one but I don't see anything on it. Are they the same? Is the python better or easier to use?

Hello CJ...

Consider a heavily planted tank. You don't have to vacuum the gravel if you have a lot of plants in the tank.

Just a thought.

A friend is giving me more live plants this weekend so I will be heavily planted then. I'm not so much looking for the vac part but i still need to change/replace the water weekly. its getting to be a pain with the buckets, I thought this would help. I just didn't know if one was better than the other.

I have a 25' Aqueon faucet water changer got it off Petco's web page shipped in 3 days. I love it so much better then buckets lol. I paid 25 bucks for mine with free shipping. Granted they where having a sale. You can always look on amazon as well.
