While many old-timers may snigger at the idea of a "battery operated vacuum aquarium cleaner", there are hobbyists who like this simple way to collect debris from a small aquarium. Similar units are sometimes available with a hand pump, but the basic concept is this: water and debris is slurped up from the bottom of the tank, and dumped through a cloth mesh bag. Debris remains in bag to be disposed of, while water returns directly to the tank. This is certainly no substitute for a regular partial water change, but serves quite nicely for a little spot cleaning. 602 Results - Battery Operated Powered Syphon Vacuum Gravel Siphon Fish Tank Aquarium Water ..

The Eheim Aquarium Vacuum is also sold as the Eheim Quick Vac Pro. It is a battery operated submersible vacuum that can be used to clean the substrate (sand, gravel, bare bottom) in your aquarium. At least, that's what the manufacturer (Eheim) claims. The price for this aquarium vacuum is around $50 US dollars and I have seen it in the local stores (petsmart and petco) and you can definitely pick one up online for a few dollars less than retail. In looking at reviews on aquarium forums, on online shops and at Amazon it was especially interesting to see the disparity in the reviews. One person would claim that it's the best piece of equipment that they have ever used on their aquarium and the next person would say that it was a complete waste of money. What was the truth? I had to pick one up to find out.This is a type of electric aquarium vacuum, except that Eheim realized that adding electrical wires to gallons of water may not have a good ending all the time. So what they did was design a battery-operated unit instead.After buying this Eheim aquarium vacuum online (it was a few dollars cheaper and shipping was a good deal) I soon received my new aquarium vacuum in the mail. Set up was fairly straight forward. There are around 4 or 5 pieces that need to be snapped together and it took about 30 seconds to figure it out and put it together. It is battery operated and the battery compartment has an O-ring to prevent any water from entering the compartment. I was impressed with the size of this vacuum. It is around 22 inches long with the extension added to it so I should haveno trouble at all reaching the bottom of my tank. The bottom piece extension is slotted and is designed to go about 1 cm deep into the substrate to suction up debris without distrubing the beneficial bacteria. The collection basket is made of really fine mesh material. It lets the gunk in and the water flows through it back into the tank.This is the best and most stylish vacuum gravel cleaner of all time. It is submersible up to 3 feet of depth in the . There is no requirement of a hose or a bucket to store the water during the cleaning process. The filter is strong enough to clean the gravel the quickest. Though costlier than the rest of the similar products, it is also better than others. The cleaner is battery operated and without any risk of any current leakage at all. Using this will surely increase the interval gaps of water change of your aquarium.
