    I've been using a medium aqueon gravel cleaner/water siphon in my 35 gallon tank and it takes foreverrrrr. So I am looking to buy a new bigger and better gravel vac but I am looking for suggestions! What kind do you use and why?

    What size bucket are you using? It takes me about 20 minutes to vacuum out my 60s using 3-5 gallon buckets.

    Pythons are extremely, and I mean it. useful.
    Takes me 10 minutes to drain/fill my 31 gallon at 25% WC.

    I have a 3 gallon bucket and my Oscar is a dump truck. I end up spending 45 minutes vacuuming gravel and end up having to filter some of the water back in to avoid doing too much of a water change by the time I finish cleaning the gravel

    I use the Python gravel vac. No need to do the bucket brigade and it takes a lot faster.
