"So far so good!"

The box comes with super easy and clear instructions. Keep your stocking of creatures low. I have been buying these bags for years. I replace my filter material in my IM Nuvo 20 reef tank every week. It was nicely packaged and is a high quality filter material. The best part about these in my opinion, is the price. I have been buying these bags for years.

"Looks great!"

I have been using an Aquaclear 50 on a 20g long planted tank. I have been buying these bags for years. Stop buying those expensive filters, buy this and make your own. I purchased this bulk filter media for a Fluval 207 canister filter. You can run everything on battery backup sockets. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. Just be super careful with the tubes!

"See photo."

A great addition to the filtration system. Why not save some money to put towards more fish or supplies. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. I will update more pictures later, once the water isnt cloudy. Plenty strong to support the rocks and gravel in my tank without sagging. I keep tubes of clear silicone sealer around. So stock your tanks a few fish at a time.

"I have 2 tanks."

I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings. I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers. My pad collected yellow cloudy color also all waste. That's a long time if you knew how nasty that many shrimp and minnows can be! I even used some in my Fluval 206 canister filter on my freshwater tank. It was easy to assemble and very effective! I bought these to put over the inlet to the filters in my aquariums.

"5 gallon enchant tank."

If you have a nano tank with filter these would be perfect for that setup. I had to take a blade and run it through all the slats because the factory doesnt q. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. The material is a soft and not abrasive at all. We rinse the filters 2x a day and they remain in continuous 24 hour operation. These work great as pre filter sponge on my quiet flow 10. I will update more pictures later, once the water isnt cloudy.

"You get what you pay for."

If you have a nano tank with filter these would be perfect for that setup. The UG is certainly no exception to that. Most plants won't like the highly oxygenated gravel and will die. They do feel a little thin but we'll see how they hold up over time. You may notice this brand is lower cost than some others. You can cap off the ones you don't want to use. Customizable in terms of media used.

"Overall a good product!"

They do feel a little thin but we'll see how they hold up over time. I use this in my filter for aquarium 55 gal. The box comes with super easy and clear instructions. And provide a few low current areas in the tank for fish who are stressed to rest. The more you overpopulate your tank, the more frequently you'll have to do this. I purchased these for an aquarium at school. Luckily I'm using powerheads and the weight of it helps hold it in place.

"Nada, zilch, nugga."

These have prevented my original problem. Cut slightly oversized, it seems very effective as a particulate filter. If you don't know much about this just google it. 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. Customizable in terms of media used. They are easy to clean but are very small.

"Love this sponge filter."

The box comes with super easy and clear instructions. Replace prefilter on pump inlet while filter is running. I also suppose my measuring tape may be off, but I would not think so. The first piece does get a bit dirty and usually only lasts a week. Any floating debri will get caught in a sponge intake on the reverse power head kit. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. If you have several aquariums, use separate UPS backups.

"I would buy it again."

The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings. It's also a pretty substantial roll. But if you don't weekly vacuum it up, it will eventually clog the filter. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. I purchase the 8 pack size Large and fits great on my TopFin 40 Gallon Filter. It made no sense why one was ten and the other was twenty.

"& was still intact."

I had to rinse the sponges after about 2. I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers. I bought these to put over the inlet to the filters in my aquariums. The air stones, plastic tubing, and charcoal were provided which one would expect. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. You may notice this brand is lower cost than some others.

"Dump the old carbon out."

Outside tank on deck with just a few fish. You can put power heads on the riser tubes to increase the flow through the filter. They do feel a little thin but we'll see how they hold up over time. I can now afford to change all my filters at a fraction of the cost. Work perfect on my shrimp tank to keep them out of the filter. I end up cutting a small 2x3 inch square for each of my media baskets. The injection molding for the plastics leave a lot to be desired.

"Easy to use repeatedly."

Don't restrict air-flow around them as they do get quite warm. If you have several aquariums, use separate UPS backups. This is a lot of filter pad for your money. Have been using this product for few month for my planted tank. It comes with carbon filters, and air stones. That's a long time if you knew how nasty that many shrimp and minnows can be! I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums.

Even its quite costly, but it last long. Also work great as filler for canisters and other filters. I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. Any floating debri will get caught in a sponge intake on the reverse power head kit. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. I've saved so much money since switching, plus my tank stays cleaner.

"Fit great into my filter."

I missed it in my opinion these filters are a must have. Within a matter of hours I now have a crystal clear tank with pristine water. Much better than the cartridges you get when you buy the filters. I change my filters once a month, so the 12 pack lasts me a year! The first piece does get a bit dirty and usually only lasts a week. Luckily I'm using powerheads and the weight of it helps hold it in place. Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers.

"They seem to be legit."

Any floating debri will get caught in a sponge intake on the reverse power head kit. It was nicely packaged and is a high quality filter material. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. I end up cutting a small 2x3 inch square for each of my media baskets. I had a 90 gallon aquarium that I did not use an undergravel filter in. Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress.

"I use this on each level."

Once you do have everything it's a good running system. They are easy to clean but are very small. It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal. For my smaller fish tank I find that it is just enough. I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers. The filters fit fine and I was happy to see that some carbon packs were included. You can also buy solutions that have the bacteria in them to also get started faster.
