gravel vacuum??

I want to buy a gravel vacuum for my 5 gallon and 10 gallon aquariums. What suggestions does everybody have?? I know NOTHING about them, so I want to be sure to get a good one. Thanks!

You can just go to Petsmart and buy one for a couple dollars. A gravel vac is a gravel vac lol.

Any 'mini' gravel vac will od the job just fine. Considering they're made out of a simple hose and plastic tube, it's hard to pick a bad one lol.

Yeah, go with the smallest diameter you can find. If you get a bigger one it will drain the water out faster then you can vacuum the gravel. At least that's my experience.

I found a really kewl one with a motor in it. It lets you either vacuum without draining the water ( essentially a filter you can direct to problem spots) or can attach a hose to it and use it to siphon the watter out. It was at pet smart for about $11 (in canada).
