"So far so good!"

I purchased these for an aquarium at school. It was a struggle to keep the water clear before i got the goldfish. I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. Even its quite costly, but it last long. The first 3 pics are of my RR tank with sump.

AQUANEAT Final Thoughts

"Fits just right."

I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers. We use this product to the extreme. We operate a saltwater bait store, dealing in live shrimp and bull minnows. I purchase the 8 pack size Large and fits great on my TopFin 40 Gallon Filter. We rinse the filters 2x a day and they remain in continuous 24 hour operation. For obvious reasons, don't put them directly above or below a tank. But a small simple rubber band fixed the issue quickly.

"That said."

Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive! Keep your stocking of creatures low. It was easy to assemble and very effective! The more you overpopulate your tank, the more frequently you'll have to do this. It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal.

More pores means larger biological filtration capacity but with less water flow through rate and needs to be cleaned more often.

"Easy install."

I bought these to put over the inlet to the filters in my aquariums. The filter material itself is good quality material too that doesn't break open. My pad collected yellow cloudy color also all waste. Why not save some money to put towards more fish or supplies. If you have several aquariums, use separate UPS backups. Especially if you have a take with shrimp or baby fish. It was a struggle to keep the water clear before i got the goldfish.

"I would recommend these."

Don't shut it off for more than a few minutes at a time. The concentration of flow will mean faster clogging, lower flow and motor strain. Stop buying those expensive filters, buy this and make your own. I took off two points because the pictures are misleading. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. I will keep using these and recommend them to anyone. I change my filters once a month, so the 12 pack lasts me a year!

AQUANEAT BH-A804 Final Thoughts

"Glad I bought 2."

It comes with carbon filters, and air stones. But if you don't weekly vacuum it up, it will eventually clog the filter. These have prevented my original problem. Luckily I'm using powerheads and the weight of it helps hold it in place. Even its quite costly, but it last long. I also suppose my measuring tape may be off, but I would not think so. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them.

"I'm a client for life."

I use this in my filter for aquarium 55 gal. Once you do have everything it's a good running system. Keep your stocking of creatures low. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. Also work great as filler for canisters and other filters. The filters fit fine and I was happy to see that some carbon packs were included. And provide a few low current areas in the tank for fish who are stressed to rest.

"Flow rate adjustment."

I have found you really have to scrub the outside to get everything cleaned out. I have been buying these bags for years. So here is the product size on the boxes that isn't included in the description! Also work great as filler for canisters and other filters. Once you do have everything it's a good running system. Keep your stocking of creatures low. I had to take a blade and run it through all the slats because the factory doesnt q.

"Very easy to do."

Work perfect on my shrimp tank to keep them out of the filter. Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive! And provide a few low current areas in the tank for fish who are stressed to rest. Just be super careful with the tubes! Still, the price is of course fine at 4 for 6. Outside tank on deck with just a few fish. For my smaller fish tank I find that it is just enough.

"I have 2 tanks."

For obvious reasons, don't put them directly above or below a tank. The Tetra Medium bio-bag slip easily on an original Top Fin plastic holder. Don't believe people who tell you they are dangerous for your tank. I even used some in my Fluval 206 canister filter on my freshwater tank. Small amounts of these bubbles can also help oxygenate the water over time. You can cap off the ones you don't want to use. I will keep using these and recommend them to anyone.

"Pretty good."

Especially if you have a take with shrimp or baby fish. Never use live rooting plants with UG filters. Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers. This is great for transporting aquarium life from location to location too. I have been buying these bags for years. The first piece does get a bit dirty and usually only lasts a week. Don't believe people who tell you they are dangerous for your tank.

"Without making a mess!"

So stock your tanks a few fish at a time. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. The filter material itself is good quality material too that doesn't break open. The UG is certainly no exception to that. Better than branded media filters cartridges. The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. TopFin frame is on the left, Tetra on the right.

"5 gallon tank."

Small amounts of these bubbles can also help oxygenate the water over time. It works okay for now but I hope it does not mess up my filter in the long run. Customizable in terms of media used. Every tank should have intake sponges. Did all of mine The same, never ripped a one and they all fit like a glove. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. It's also a pretty substantial roll.

"The hole is smaller."

Once you do have everything it's a good running system. But if you don't weekly vacuum it up, it will eventually clog the filter. I end up cutting a small 2x3 inch square for each of my media baskets. Have been using this product for few month for my planted tank. Every tank should have intake sponges. I keep tubes of clear silicone sealer around. I've saved so much money since switching, plus my tank stays cleaner.

Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress. I had to take a blade and run it through all the slats because the factory doesnt q. Also work great as filler for canisters and other filters. You may notice this brand is lower cost than some others. Replace prefilter on pump inlet while filter is running.
