Not Really A Fish Tank Water Changer: After it’s done with removing any and all debris formed in your aquarium, the EHEIM Quick Vac Pro will keep hold of the debris inside of it and will return any water it sucked during the process back to the tank.

This design is the result of 3 or 4 prototypes and various airlift concepts, some of which you have seen in previous videos. It's great that an air pump can be used in this way. Don't bother with the fancy battery powered aquarium vacs out there, this works so much better!
This works SO well, you may need to be careful not to suck up any fry as you work with it inside your tank.
All of the parts are readily available at your local home improvement store, however, I may start to sell kits for really successful projects like this in the near future, so stay tuned for that!
