Description:
Quick and thorough removal of sludge and dirt layers in aquarium gravel. The Eheim Sludge Extractor removes detritus without taking out water. Powerful and maintenance-free suction pump loosens gravel layer so the sludge is churned up and drawn into the suction system. Useful bacteria remain undisturbed in the lower part of the gravel bed. Uses 4 AA batteries (included). For best results, operate the Eheim Sludge Extractor at a maximum aquarium water depth of 23-1/2 inches and a minimum depth of 8 inches. For use in fresh or saltwater aquariums. The Eheim Sludge Extractor Measures 2-1/2" x 24" high.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): None
Cons: Slow; Poor workmanship

 
I bought one of these in my early days of fishkeeping. It was much, much slower than a traditional gravel vacuum and it only lasted for about 1 - 2 months before the motor stopped working, and I was always very careful not to get the motor wet.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Spot cleaning
Cons: Not well suited for sand substrate, can splash in shallow tanks.

 
Ive owned one for 7 months now and has come in handy for doing some cleanup tasks before water changes. Works about as well as my syphon vac, but without loosing water. Sand will make the impeller stop working until you break it down and rinse it out though.

NEVER be afraid to make a complete fool of yourself. You may be surprised at how much fun you could have.
