EHEIM Sludge Remover - anybody tried it?

I am handicapped and I have trouble operating the gravel vacuum/syphons. For partial weekly water changes I just use a cup to scoop out old water and replace it (the tank is only 5 gallons, with one betta fish - but he is a poop machine).

Has anybody tried the battery powered EHEIM Sludge Remover? It is supposed to wash the gravel and vacuum up algae, debris, poop, etc.

Thanks!

Good product. It, unlike some "wonder products", actually works. I don't have the Eheim, but a friend does.

I've never used it, but have been tempted to buy it. It seems like it would be a bit of overkill for a 5 gallon tank though. I don't think it has an adjustable uptake, so it may just suck the water out of the tank way too quickly. On the other hand, the cheaper battery powered ones generally require a certain height of water to function, and the 5 gallon tank will be too short for that.
