Eheim A well-kept aquarium radiates crystal-clear cleanliness right down to the gravel bed. However, sinking dirt particles, plant debris and organic residues repeatedly form an ugly layer of sludge. This provides the breeding ground for unwanted substances which pollute the water.

One should therefore thoroughly clean the surface of the gravel at regualr intervals and remove the dirt particles around plant roots, stones and corners. The newly developed EHEIM Sludge Extractor is therefore an ideal helping hand.

In principle this handy tool functions like a conventional vacuum cleaner: The powerful pump sucks the dirty water from the bottom via the suction jet into the integrated filter element. Here the dirt particles are reliably caught and removed from the water.
  • Battery operation
  • Working duration of up to 4 hours
  • Easy handling
  • Powerful suction pump
  • Suction jet with extension element
  • Suitable for marine and freshwater
  • Supplied complete with batteries
  • Fully submersible
  • 2 years guarantee
  • Requires 4 AA batteries to operate
  • 2.5" x 24"
Tip: Works best when you go slow and easy, especially when the batteries are new.

Not so effective

REVIEW
The product arrived with very old suspect batteries. No worries, I did not use the batteries, instead replacing them with new ones. If that was the only problem it would have been okay. However the unit itself has not been very effective. It will run for a while if you hold it still and exactly ...Read More

Sucks

REVIEW
As happenstance would have it, my current in the tank piles the detritus in the corner of my tank where it is easy to dip this vacuum in and suck it up. In this manner, I spend two minutes a week on this aspect of tank maintenance. The unit does tend to get clogged up with plant stems, but it ge...Read More

REVIEW
When this is working, I truly love it, but it only worked for a handful of uses and had to change the batteries a couple times. If it doesn't break, it is quite great.

REVIEW
If you give this a bad review then you are not using it correctly. I got one a few weeks ago when I started getting an algae and slime problem in the substrate in my tank. You need to go slow but this thing works awesome at pulling detritus while leaving the sand and water behind. I had to give 4 s...Read More
