    This is a great product. I use them in my 75 gallon gold fish tank. I have two filstar large filters running into the tank. I wish you would stock the Micro Filtration along with the super micro. I have three large goldfish and a large sucker fish and with the goldfish aquarium cleaner my tank is staying clear and no more slime in the in take and out let lines.
