First off I love Chewy! I buy all my pets supplies here. For years I bought my filters from aquaclear but not anymore. I had to purchase two within four months. Aquaclear used to make one of the best products but their workmanship is shotty now. Cheaply made and is NOT durable/waterproof like it used to be. Both of them started leaking the last one leaked badly within a week. Not good especially with my pet red ear slider turtles e coli water leaking everywhere down into my neighbors apt that live under me. I immediately called Chewy and they were very understanding about my situation and made me whole. Even helped me find a better one. The manager Dee was awesome! Even though aquaclear is sadly no longer my top choice...my loyalty with Chewy will never change.
Aeration only seems to work in 'forward flow', not reverse. It is quiet.
These are great power heads. I am going old school and using them for a underwater gravel filter. The reversible flow is a huge plus for this application.
It’s very powerful and my fish has never been happier
Using it to pull suction off my under gravel filters after I connected al l4 tubes through a cross tube section for the lower tubes. My Gravel stays cleaner between water changes and the fish love the bubbles.
The instructions to assemble were useless. The plastic tube did not fit in the hole for the pump.
Its been 10 years since I had turtles and set it up the way I remembered it. I have the 50 in a hundred gallon tank and it's circulating well without a strong current
This pump works well and I like the reverse flow option and ability to decrease the speed of flow but I can’t use it the way I hoped because it is so rigid it doesn’t angle at all. It only points strait ahead. The clip on the side is not really helpful for this. The suction cup option you can submerge it which is great but still would love to be able to turn or band and angle the flow.
I been using this for over a week with my sponge filter in my 10 gallon tank. No complaints.
Bought this to help circulate the water better in my 29g tank. Works great! However, the instructions it came with to assemble are useless. Looked it up on YouTube.
