Python Pro-Clean Gravel Washer Siphon Kit 6" Mini (Mfg# 6PC)
Great for getting in the small spaces
It is great for going deep into the gravel while minimizing how much gravel or sand or any substrate for that matter will be picked up and brought into the bucket because the long necked tube allows the user to observe what is flowing into it and you can adjust the flow accordingly by keeping your thumb over the end of the tube which is spitting the water back into the bucket. You should really get one of these if you have an older take which really needs you to get to the bottom of your substrate before you get a nitric cycle eruption like I did because all the debris and dangerous gas is stored in the gravel and not released properly. It will also help to maintain the tank on the regular for those that want to get around their plants or driftwood or other decorations without having to do too much additional work and moving around. There is no downside, every product serves its purpose and this product serves its purpose well!

PRODUCT GREAT...SERVICE...NOT SO!
The syphon bulb I ordered with this item was missing an adapter making it useless with this gravel cleaner. Python products are amazing...just wish I would have gotten all I had ordered. But this was not the products fault.

I've been using the larger diameter tubes for a long time. I never could get the hang of crimping the tubing to stop the syphon from grabbing too much sand/ gravel and massive amounts of water in a short period of time. THIS smaller diameter and longer tube allows me a slower, but complete CONTROL cleaning my sand/ gravel and is in sync with how much water I am actually going to remove for a water change. Love it -- wish I had tried it sooner. Price is surprisingly LOW for a make my life easier product!
