Love this filter!! Its quite and works wonders! Does an awesome job for my 2 gal snail tank
I use two of these filters in my turtle tank, one on each end. I like that they have a large open compartment so that I can use whatever media I choose. It comes with four suction cups, but Bob likes to mess with things a lot, so as a backup, I used a small rope or cord through the two holes and hang it on a hook I bought so it doesn't end up as a toy on the bottom of the tank. The motor and all is pretty easy to clean. About once a month or so I will take the filters to the bathtub for a cleaning. This has a screw on cap to the filter which catches a lot of gunk, and it's easy to unscrew and clean off. I use a bottle brush to clean the inside of the filter as well as a rag. I'm very happy with these filters. Any filter than can keep up with my adult RES turtle (Bob) deserves five stars!
I wouldn't recommend for a 10 gallon tank. It pushes a currant but it's small.
This filter cleans the water and doesn't have a strong current. My neons are so comfortable. I highly recommend it.
