recommendation for gravel vac

Wondering what a good gravel vacuum would be for my 55g goldfish tank? It's pretty heavily planted but I figure with goldies even that won't be enough...

Thanks!

For sure get a python or similar vac makes life easy but if its heavy planted don't worry too much about vacuuming the gravel just swish by the poop to stir it up and siphon it out

They're all pretty similar man, end of the day it's only a piece of plastic and a hose. If it's a deeper tank just make sure you buy a slightly longer one. : )

Except for a python you can hook up to your sink and loose your buckets for good lol
