The mini gravel vacuum features a simple up/down motion of the head for a few strokes and the built-in vacuum valve automatically starts the flow. A vast improvement over earlier vacuums that required pre-filling the vacuum head to start the flow. The unit also features a simple tubing holder w/clamp for easy attachment to almost any bucket or container preventing unwanted spills. Distributed by Rena OEM Sales.
A 5 inch gravel vacuum is a must for any serious aquarist that keeps desktop, mini-aquariums and goldfish bowls that are so popular today. The small size won't over power the cleaning process and reaches small corners, around plants and decorations without disturbing your carefully aquascaped aquarium.
