Small vs Small-Tall By Jesse on 5/6/2019Jesse would recommend this product to a friendI own both the Small and Small-Tall versions for my 12 gallon quarantine tanks. They both use the same diameter tubing. I have found that the because the suction is pretty poor with such a small diameter hose, that the Small-Tall performs considerably worse than the Small.
On the Small Tall, the detritus will start to get sucked up, but will then fall back down because of the length of the tube. Avoid this model even if it's tempting because it may keep your hands dry. It just doesn't work.
While the Small will get the debris up, because it hits the hose before it has a chance to fall back down, it literally takes FOREVER to fill up a 5 gallon bucket. If you're just doing a water change, you'd get it done much faster by just scooping the water out. Or upgrade to the smallest 2 inch model instead of these.
I would recommend the Small on a 5-10 gallon tank. I used it on a 12 gallon. The Small-Tall is useless.
Use every water change By Hannah on 7/12/2018Hannah would recommend this product to a friendI use this to vacuum my 13.5 gallon every 2 weeks, no issues what so ever, love python brand products.
Suction not strong enough By Nina on 11/3/2017Nina wouldn't recommend this product to a friendi tried this on a 3 gallon betta tank for more that a month.
