Once you get the hang of it, you will feel much more confident. I use it on a sink that actually sits a little higher than the my tank. I'm not incredibly strong either, so that only adds to the problem :P Here's something that you can try.

Thanks. I bought a Marina Easy Clean self-starting vacuum (medium size, 16" tube) and tried to use it on my 6 gallon aquarium. However, you must also keep in mind the weight of the bucket when full. This makes it easier to work around the aquarium and will not cause your heater or filter to malfunction. check my blog
You could point one end of the hose out a door/window or to a drain lower in level than the tank. If you do notice that your gravel vacuum keeps getting clogged where the wider vacuum attaches to the more narrow tubing, just tilt it a bit more or tap it lightly Source(s): Hobbyist for many years.
