  • Works exactly as I had hoped for.

    By on

    I had purchased the Fluval Pre Filter Sponge in hopes that it would slow the intake on my Aqueon Quietflow 10 filter so that my betta, Ketchup, could swim more easily in my community tank. I did not know if it would fit nor actually work. But to my delight it had fulfilled its purpose wonderfully! It fits well on the intake and still allows for my water to be filtered. Ketchup can easily swim around the tank and my 3 mystery snails often enjoy wondering around on the sponge. Additionally I like that the sponge does not distract from the rest of my tank.

  • Works well for my purposes

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    I am using this Pre Filter Sponge on my filter outlet on my betta’s tank. It slows down the flow, otherwise the poor guy cant swim straight, with the strong current.

  • Perfect Fit

    Perfect fit for all my intake filters. Wish it came in white so it would be easier to see when I have to change them out.

  • Excellent Sponge

    By on

    This sponge fits the intake tube of my Aqueon Quietflow 10 HOB filter with no modifications needed. Now my filter will stay cleaner, and I don't have to worry about my betta's fins getting caught in the intake. Will definitely buy more of these.

  • Perfect fit...

    We were unsure if this item would fit our tiny tank because of past experience with other brands. Lo and behold this one fit perfectly! Great product and price!

  • alternate use

    By on

    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!

  • 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.
