Our extendable mini-aquarium vacuum works great for tall tanks and mini-aquariums. It can be extended in length from 9.5 to 18 inches making it ideal for smaller tall aquariums. The 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.

No matter what filtration you use a gravel vacuum will help you maintain a cleaner and healthier environment for your fish by both removing waste that settles to the bottom and facilitating weekly water changes. In most cases you can perform weekly water changes and clean your gravel in under 30 minutes. This also has the added benefit of reducing the maintenance on any filters you have running on your aquarium.
