Awsome for the price By Jb on 12/13/2018Jb would recommend this product to a friendWorks great. Glad I bought it. Used to use aquarium tubing, but this is sooooo much quicker and easier.. a must have especially at this price..
Excellent By Jake on 12/5/2018Jake would recommend this product to a friendFürs of all, If you can't get a siphon it's because you have the roller valve all the way open, if you rollit down to the more closed positions it is a one-squeeze siphon which is phenomenally easy. The hook on top hangs securely on the tank, adjustment of drops is super easy with the roll valve, and I don't have to put my hands on the tank to start a siphon or tie and adjust knots in tubing. When you're done, just open the valve all the way and all the water flys out. Super easy going to get another one so I can acclimate multiple groups at the same time - fish and inverts.
Only half works By Brian on 5/9/2018Brian wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSiphon starter didn't work from first use. Drip regulator works well but the idea is to not have to get any tank water in your mouth. I have to start the siphon the old fashioned way which sucks... litterally! (pardon the pun)
Works great!! By nelson on 1/16/2018nelson would recommend this product to a friendDoes what it says, makes dripping livestock easy.
Buy it and you won't regret it By William on 11/13/2017William would recommend this product to a friendI've held off on buying an acclimation kit for a few years and opted to just rig up my own when I needed them but after getting tired of constantly trying to find my airline valves and tubing, which always seemed to wonder off, I purchased two of these and am very happy with the purchase. They set a nice drip rate that's fully adjustable and are always together and ready when I need them
Great By Dannon on 7/24/2017Dannon would recommend this product to a friendProduct works great, long hose and does what it is supposed to do.
Easy To Use By Stephanie on 6/2/2017Stephanie would recommend this product to a friendThis came the same day a shipment of coral arrived. The squeeze siphon did not want to work at first, but after a few tries did work correctly. It was very easy to adjust the flow to what I needed.
Very Useful By Ron on 5/18/2017Ron would recommend this product to a friendClutch for acclimating and manual dosing. Worth the buy.
A must have for moving aquatic lifes to their new home By Rutso on 3/28/2017Rutso would recommend this product to a friendIf you are buying new fish this is a must to have to acclimate the new aquatic life to their new home and avoid stress due to drastic water parameters changes. If the siphon doesn't seem to work try closing the gap then squeeze.
Awesome. By Dcarroll5 on 2/18/2017Dcarroll5 would recommend this product to a friendI use this on a regular basis. Have had the same one for two years with no issues. Great way to acclimate slowly.
worked great 3-4 times only By diversitti on 9/4/2016diversitti wouldn't recommend this product to a friendloved this at first, but the squeeze siphon stopped working after a few uses
Works perfectly By Sonny on 5/16/2016Sonny would recommend this product to a friendIt does exactly what you need it to. You can adjust it easily to match the rate you're looking for. If you have been acclimating with a cup this will be your favorite cheap piece of equipment.
