    Outstanding Chinese product

    By BigFish on Apr 2, 2021

    I was skeptical at first. I am a American Fish/Aquarium Hobbyist. For the money and simplicity of use, this is a great secondary or even third back up HOB. WORKS WELL ! Ditch the carbon and use purigen or other type of media.

    Excellent Filter

    By KatShep on Mar 29, 2020

    I've had many of this type of filter over the years. This one is much like other brands in design. It is easy to set up, It is exceptionally quiet, and I like the adjustable flow feature. The UV is a bonus, though I am not sure the amount to exposure time is adequate. I have had several SunSun products (canister filters, etc) they have proven to be good quality for a reasonable price.

    I tried everything, wish that I’d tried this 1st!

    By Alex on Sep 7, 2019

    This is one of the best investments I’ve ever made for my 30g aquarium. I had tried everything to clean it up and nothing was working. I always ended up with greenish cloudy water. After just 4 days my tank looks 10x better. I can finally see my fish again!!

    Great but...

    By Aleigha on May 31, 2019

    I just received this filter yesterday and everything went great, it was quiet, nice flow ect. Today however it's not very quiet and the UV light is flickering. I followed the instructions, had no issue on set up, just not sure if I got a faulty one or what. I didn't run it dry or anything like that, I'm not new to fish keeping so I wouldn't make that rookie mistake.

    LOVE IT!!!

    By Kitt on Apr 11, 2019

    I was very sceptical about this item. But it IS the best filter I ever bought. It has options for how hard your filtering and how loud/hard you want it to come out of the filter. My tank was a murky green and now its clear! Will be buying it again when get a bigger tank.

    Good idea but not well put together

    By Armyfishman on Dec 16, 2018

    This was a very good concept of a Filter. But it needs to actually work for it to actually be a good concept. I believe the UV bulb is not powerful enough. But still a good idea concept ,because of the media there and the filter sponge is perfect. The two filter boxes you can actually fill up your media is perfect. It seems that the filter is just put together to fast the pumping system is not very good. There is no incoherent instructions on how to work the flow of the filter.

    Versatile HOB Filter

    By CichlidHouse on Nov 27, 2018

    I'm running the 500 on my 20H and love it. You can adjust the filter basket however you like, which is a feature that can be hard to find in an HOB filter (I added Purigen and a nitrate-reducing filter pad, plus some extra ceramic media). It's not the quietest filter I've ever had, but it's no worse than the hum of a refrigerator. The adjustable flow is great for feeding time to keep food from being sucked up before the fish have a chance to eat it, but be careful. The knobs can pop off (though they'll pop right back in). The filter does need to be primed when you turn it on, but that's maybe an extra 20-30 seconds of work, so no big deal. For the price you pay and what you get (surface skimmer I'm running the 500 on my 20H and love it.
