  • Does exactly what I need

    By on

    Lost a few shrimp and a fish to the intake. So I ordered this to hopefully prevent any more losses. Only reason I’m giving 4 stars is because it doesn’t fit snug on the intake. It falls off pretty easily if you’re removing the intake to clean. But overall it’s awesome. I’ll be ordering another one for another tank I have.

  • Works on my Aqueon Minibow 2.5

    By on

    I bought this for my betta's Aqueon Minibow 2.5, after reading tons of reviews about what tank was best for bettas and how bettas don't like the water filter stream to push them around. I know that this sponge IS NOT specifically made for this tank, but it slid right on and slowed down the water current. I still plan to trying to shove another filter sponge where the water flows from the filter into the tank, as I have read this slows down the current even more. However, I installed this sponge 4 weeks ago, and it is probably more than sufficient by itself.

  • Perfect fit for our top fin tank!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    We have a top fin 3.5 gallon tank and I wanted a sponge pre- filter to use on the intake filter. I bought this thinking i would need to modify it to make it work with our brand tank...PERFCT FIT! Im just amazed. Will be ordering more! I love that one end is closed so my little betta cant swim up into the filter. He loves hanging around the filter intake, i guess he thinks he is a tough guy...but in reality...he was going to hurt himself by letting his fins get sucked into the intake filter! This is great and Im so excited it was a perfect fit.

    This is the sponge you get for the Fluval Spec V or III if you have a betta. The filter stream velocity is too strong and this diffuses it! The betta can still have a great filtered tank, but the water is more still, which they prefer.

  • High quality and better design

    By on

    I have bought many intake pre filters before that I wasn't happy with because it had a hole all the way through and out the bottom. Depending on the size of your intake, those type seems to suck more water up through the bottom hole, not running it across the sponge to build beneficial bacteria. Not these! They have a hole in the top, but the bottom is closed. These work perfectly since I run several smaller sized filters on each tank instead of one large one. My intakes are smaller, but these still fit nicely without having to use string or bands to keep the top snug. I'm very happy with these and will add a few each time I place an order so I have back ups.. or start up a new tank!
