Vacuums

So i'm probably, finally, going to get a vacuum today but I need to know which one to get...It seems that petsmart only has two. I couldn't find any at petco, but if you know of any please let me know. =)


Which one is best?

I think I have the top fin one. I think they all basically work the same. What size tank do you have?

I would just get the smallest gravel vacumn you can find. I think I have the small top fin one and it was like $7 (would have gotten the XS but they were out) and it's done fine in my 10 gallon. It's supposed to start if you pump it underwater so you don't have to suck on it but sucking is a lot easier.

Okay I will look for the smallest one I can find. I am trying to get a bigger tank but all seem to be so expensive, at petsmart and petco anyways. I want to get a 10 gal or 20 gal. But I don't want to spend over $60.

I got a 10 gallon starter kit at Walmart for 40. Came with the tank and a filter and a light hod with bulbs. If you've already got a heater and plants you'd be all set.

I have the top fin one and the valve broke the first time i used it. it still works fine but it sucks up my gravel and i have to suck on the end to get it started.

I just start the siphon with my mouth. It's a lot quicker, and doesn't gross me out at all. Honestly, it's no different than accidentally swallowing lake water. Actually, my water is probably cleaner. LOL!
