Aquarium Gravel Vacuums

A gravel vacuum is an essential tool to maintain a healthy environment for your aquatic life. A gravel vacuum helps during the water changing process by removing excess debris and waste material from the substrate without disturbing the décor—helping to keep the water levels stable—and reduce stress to your fish. It is ideal to use a gravel vacuum and change 10- to 25-percent of your aquarium’s water every two to four weeks.
