It features a removable hose-connecting device, an adjustable flow control system, and an easy-to-open filter head so it’s easy to use at home. Thanks to the calibrated anti-vibration bushings, it runs smoothly and quietly, and its compact design saves plenty of space.

    Worked great for a while...

    By Tmb110 on Dec 7, 2020

    I've been using the filter for about a month now and it's been amazing until today when the water flow completely stopped. I disconnected everything and cleaned the filters inside and reconnected and primed the filter and nothing. all flow has stopped and I have no idea what is wrong with it.

    Does the job well

    By Gary on Sep 21, 2020

    I am very happy with pump & filter but had to do some design modification to create actual water flow within the tank. I am using it in a shallow water (2" deep) set up for baby turtles. The pump draws water in well but as designed but if you use the supplied spray bar to distribute the water back into the tank there is little to no water circulation in the tank. I did not use the plug in the end of the spray bar. Instead I snapped the little plastic spoon looking supplied piece on the end of the spray bar. It's a bit loose as is so I heated it and squeezed it so that it became smaller in order to snugly fit onto the end of the spray bar. I positioned the spray bar horizontally about 2" above I am very happy with pump & filter but had to do some design modification to create actual water flow within the tank.

A small amount of water does trickle out the spray bar but the majority of the water exits out the end and creates a water flow back to the pump inlet. … more

    Not reliable

    By Laura on Sep 2, 2020

    This filter is not reliable. There is just a tiny hose for the out take water to be sucked up through. It often pops out, or it is hard to put the lid on without pinching it. Times when it does function it is difficult to get it started. Don’t bother.

    horrible filter

    By jay22 on May 11, 2020

    If I could give this filter 0 stars I would. I bought this for a 10 gallon tank. Stayed good for 2 days. Now I’m on the third day and the water in my tank is cloudy. The machine started making a crazy sound. I thought this was the one but it’s not. After this one I will never buy another filter or another thing from your website. The found as well is supposed to stop making my water cloudy and what do you know my water started getting cloudy on the second day.

    Difficult to use

    By Sinn on Mar 10, 2020

    Keeps the water clean for maybe a week. The filters get gross and nasty and then the whole system takes like 30 mins to clean. The water doesn’t pump into the tank right and the locks that clamp down are AWFUL. It is really hard on my hands and sometimes I can’t open it to clean it. I have to have my husband open it for me. Would never buy this again.
