This thing really works! I read in some other reviews that the filter makes way too much noise, mine did too, I took it apart and cleaned it, which we should anyways and never heard a noise out of it again
Not trying to be dramatic but this thing is making us miserable! Our turtle tank is in back of the living room, next to the kitchen and master bedroom. This filter is SO LOUD that we keep the bedroom door closed constantly, especially when I WFH or I cannot concentrate or make phone calls. We also have to turn up the TV in the living room to hear over it. Then the smell is ridiculous!! I installed it less than 6 wks ago and have had to clean the tank twice since b/c of the smell. Cleaning takes over an hour that I don't have time for! You can smell it in the kitchen which is gross when cooking and smell it in the living room which makes trying to sit and enjoy some family time, challenging. I've had this turtle 7 years and never experienced anything like this. I wish I hadn't shelled out so much money for this one! Can't afford to try another one right yet. Some of the reviews said it was loud...wish I would have listened!
I purchased this filter recently for my pet turtle in a 50gal tank. It works amazingly! The water was visibly dirty and beginning to get an odor. I thought this would be a good way to test the effectiveness of this product and you wouldn’t believe it but the water was crystal clear and odorless by the next morning! You won’t get a better filter for this price. I highly recommend for other turtle owners but it may be too powerful for fish or small amphibians.
It’s the airs test filter I ever had. It’s being used for my 50 gallon tank and it takes about an hour after I put it in to clear the water up! I love it
I was pretty skeptical buying this filter as some of the reviews weren’t the best but I’m so glad I did. I keep things simple with just a few goldfish in a 55 gallon tank. Every filter I bought previously NEVER kept the water this clean. I do wish the the current/ filter rate was adjusted as it’s very powerful.
The insulation fell off the wire and the filter shorted out.
-doesn’t pull water through unless you move it around under the water -it only pulls water at the top half of the filter media so the bottom half is pointless -loud -very strong flow
Worked great on my 170 gallon cattle feeder pond! I know it says up to 97 gallons, but hey it works. I hadn’t been very proactive and let it get cloudy. At first I had to clean the filters after 3 hours and slowly worked up to 8 hour runs. Now the water is very clear, and the koi are happily swimming around. So if you were a inattentive pond owner, with a little patience, this works great.
I love this filter! Used it after scraping my glass, doing a water change and blowing out my sand. This thing clears the water up in only a couple hours. I would not use this for main filtration because it clogs up fast, but it’s fantastic for clearing up a major issue in a couple hours or overnight.
I have been using this filter for about a month now. I have a turtle in a 90 gal aquarium. My aquarium is filled up about 30ish gallons and I have been looking for a filter to take on the bioload. I haven't cleaned the filter yet, but it is extremely powerful and very inexpensive for the power. I would highly recommend it. I didn't want a canister filter because I don't have the aquarium filled up all the way and I seem to break them or they stop working a couple of months within use (when the aquarium is filled up all the way). I needed a filter that could take on three times the amount of water in the tank and also something to keep the water constantly moving, to prevent debris from settling. The filter isn't completely submerged. I turned it upside down and the input and output submerged in the water. You can also add media to the filter which I really liked. It also came with some media, but I need to purchase more. I purchased this filter just to see if it would work and it's worked longer than a lot of the other cheap filters. I am very pleased and pleasantly surprised. I would not recommend this to be in an enclosure with animals that aren't strong swimmers. But otherwise, great product.
