Aquarium Kingdom Tips
The gravel vacuum is easy to use. Connect the clear hose (provided) to the gravel vacuum. Clip the other end of the hose to the bucket or buy some more hosing and run it outside into the garden so you don't have to lift buckets around the house.
To start the vacuum. Just dip the vacuum at a 45 degree angle into the aquarium until the Self start valve (blue bit) of the vacuum is under water. Now push the vacuum up and down a few times and the water should start to flow. Now all you do is push the vacuum into the gravel and watch the dirt come out. Move this along the bottom of the aquarium until the gravel is clean or once enough water has been taken out.
