An Aquarium Siphon is a very useful maintenance tool. Any hobbyist needs to have an aquarium siphon. The siphon is useful in changing water in the aquarium. The Aquarium siphon is similar to ordinary siphons which are found in hardware and home improvement stores.
However, there are certain differences in its design. The suction point has a filter which prevents the entry of substrate such as gravel. It has a large mouth which distributes the suction pressure evenly and cleans with minimum agitation of the water.
The siphon can be firmly held and directed in any specific direction. This helps in easy clean up of detritus which would have fallen to the bottom.
