What size do i get i have a 75 gallon tank
Answer by ChewySep 28, 2017
The largest size we carry would be the U4, which is used for tanks that hold between 34-65 gallons.

I just installed my U3 in a turtle tank. People were bragging about it being very quiet. Mine is not. Is this filter supposed to be soundless? I'm new to this and I don't know anything about filters. Somebody gifted my 4 year old with a baby turtle and I'm trying to do my best to take care of it.
Answer by ChewyNov 27, 2017
Typically the filter will make noise if the water level is below the filter. We encourage pet parents to fill the tank 2 to 3 inches above the filter to prevent this.

Can I use this for my Betta fish, how fast is the flow?
Answer by ChewyJan 10, 2018
This Filter allows for adjustable flow and will be suitable for a tank with a Betta.

What size is best recommended for a 75 gallon tank? Thank you!
Answer by ChewyFeb 04, 2018
The U1 is suitable for up to 15 gallon tanks, the U2 is for 12-30 gallon tanks, the U3 is for 24-40 gallon tanks and the U4 is perfect for 34-65 gallon aquariums. At this time this model does not have an option for a 75 gallon tank.

My cats love the chunky Turkey, so I figured we’d give this a try. They won’t touch it. Too bad. They are so picky. I’ve tried so many FF flavors, and even the flavors they used to eat they will not touch.

stopped working

Stopped working 3 months in , wouldn’t recommend-I cleaned it out every week as recommended religiously the way the instructions state -and that seems to be the census I’m seeing on these reviews

Nice product but cheap impeller blades break within a year of purchase

Great product. Except the green spinning blades on the impeller assembly. Fluval won't mail you just the 25cent replacement plastic. They sell the full magnetic impeller assembly for $17. A new filter costs ya $37. Do the math - Fluval customer service sucks and they only care about selling more. Not helping their knowlegable customers with a quick easy repair option ...

Not a Great Product IMO

This is also my second one of these filters. The first one didnt work when I received it, so Chewy replaced it at no charge (their service is top notch). The second one just died after only one year of use. Literally just stopped working. What is happening with Fluval? My first Fluval filter lasted for years. Kind of mad about it. All done with the brand.

Quit working within the week.

I was happy with this filter at first, as it is easy to assemble and looks good, doesn't take up much space, was very quiet and worked well. However, within the first 7 days of use, the filter started making a very loud noise and foaming up the water/making the water extremely dirty. Cleaning and maintenance to the filter does not fix this issue. I've had it only about two weeks and it is completely unusable. Ultimately would not recommend for more than a couple day holdover.

I don’t get it!

It’s very confusing. The directions really don’t help either.

Possibly Need more Help on this Filter

So, yeah, I might need more help on this filter. Not a lot of water pressure/flow coming out. Kinda easy to assemble. No idea how much the replacements are going to cost on the filters, and the tank is still kinda cloudy. Maybe I need to give it the rest of the week, but I have a 20 gallon tank, and this is for a 30 gallon. Maybe I'm missing something.
