LOVE this filter Product Review by DIMITRI KLIMENKO (Posted on 1/16/14)

Excellent!

Comments: My wife calls this small filter, "cute", ...I think it's indispensable.

It's hard to find a reliable filter that can handle a small talk (grow-out tank) without killing the fry or other inhabitants with too high a flow. This little bio-sponge is not only properly suited for flow considerations, but the filter material is perfectly sized for fry or baby shrimp. Almost every other brand uses sponge material with larger pores.

For aquariums 2-5 gallons, give this a try.

Works great. Product Review by AMERICO RODRIGUEZ (Posted on 6/13/12)

Excellent!

Comments: You will not find it cheaper any where else. Perfect in helping to keep tank crystal clear & your bioload steady. The bubbles come out at the right size not breaking up the surface. Quite & reliable. You will find fish & your tank cleaners feasting on the sponge. Getting at the debri stuck on to the sponge helping you from cleaning it sooner then you needed.

Bubbles not finely diffused Product Review by EDWARD CLEAVER (Posted on 3/21/12)

Average

Comments: I love the size of this filter for my 5 gallon planted shrimp tank. However, the bubbles are not finely diffused which disturbs the water's surface and probably doesn't oxygenate the tank as well either. I took this apart to see if I could put a diffuser stone inside the assembly and this did not seem possible without significantly altering and possible ruining the plastic pieces which hold the sponge in place. If this item had better oxygen diffusion I think it would deserve a 5 star rating!

inefective Product Review by FRANK BETANCOURT (Posted on 1/8/12)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: The air lift tubing is to short, making the draw through the sponge innefective. The built in air difuser does not break the pump air into small bubbles creating large bubbles and making it rather noisy.
