hopefully cos i just brought it :D
IMP, it would be better/easier to just buy a regular gravel cleaner, works as a syphon. (no batteries needed) This will clean your gravel and remove water at the same time.

One like Angle posted. I do not believe there is any way to hook up a hose to the one you bought. It is designed for gravel cleaning only.

It has both but the bag is handy if the water is reli merky as you can only take out so much with a water change so you can place the bag on it instead of the hose and filter the water thru the bag and back into the tank
