These battery powered gravel vacs are super cheap and as you would expect, they don't work very well... UNTIL you make a few modifications like i've done in this video. If you have bare bottom tanks in your fishroom and you're tired of looking at fish waste, give this modification a try, it's extremely satisfying!

Have you ever vacuumed your tank and run out of water before you run out of crud? I could never seem to get my tank clean without removing most of the water. I looked at battery powered vacuums but the high prices and poor reviews made me reconsider.

I came up with this powered vacuum using old parts from past aquariums. This design is the result of 3 or 4 prototypes and various airlift concepts, some of which you have seen in previous videos. It's great that an air pump can be used in this way. Don't bother with the fancy battery powered aquarium vacs out there, this works so much better!

This works SO well, you may need to be careful not to suck up any fry as you work with it inside your tank.

All of the parts are readily available at your local home improvement store, however, I may start to sell kits for really successful projects like this in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

So, you can imagine my dissapointment with the Eheim Aquarium Vacuum. I was really looking forward to this thing working well for my tank. The tank I was wanting to primarily use it on is a bare bottomed reef tank and this vacuum would have been perfect for spot cleaning every few days in betweenwater changes. There are a lot of things going for this vacuum. It seems like it is well designed and well thought out but it just needs a bigger motor or something. I wouldn't even mind having to put 8 AA batteries in it instead of 4 if it would double the power it delivered. I'm now looking online for mod ideas on how to make it more powerful since I don't want to completely throw in the towel. If I do come across anything I'll post back here.The MARINA Multi-Vac is a powerful 3 in 1 aquarium gravel cleaner, algae remover and water siphon. Since the Multi-Vac is battery operated, it eliminates the posibility of electric shock.
A simple push of a button and the Multi-Vac jumps into action. The side bag makes it easy to trap debris or simply attach a hose when a water change is needed.
The Multi-Vac is extendable from 8" to 16" which makes it ideal for most aquariums.
