UPETTOOLS Final Thoughts

"Good quality."

Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers. I use this in my filter for aquarium 55 gal. 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. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. I had a 90 gallon aquarium that I did not use an undergravel filter in. It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal.

Fluval A228A1 First Impressions

"Easy install."

Plenty strong to support the rocks and gravel in my tank without sagging. You can cap off the ones you don't want to use. I purchased these for an aquarium at school. I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings. The filter material itself is good quality material too that doesn't break open. We rinse the filters 2x a day and they remain in continuous 24 hour operation. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly.

"I have 2 tanks."

Better than branded media filters cartridges. If you have a nano tank with filter these would be perfect for that setup. Any floating debri will get caught in a sponge intake on the reverse power head kit. I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers. These work great as pre filter sponge on my quiet flow 10. It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal. I had to rinse the sponges after about 2.

Aquarium Masters 56065 First Impressions

"Huge mess."

I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. Because they are the smart thing to do when you keep aquariums. The measurements are about 9 cm long x 4 cm wide and the hole is about 2 cm. It's a pain in the butt to put together the directions don’t do it that well. The Tetra Medium bio-bag slip easily on an original Top Fin plastic holder. For obvious reasons, don't put them directly above or below a tank. Particles fall off into the aquarium when you take them off to clean them.

"Quiet and reliable."

It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. I replace my filter material in my IM Nuvo 20 reef tank every week. Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress. But if you don't weekly vacuum it up, it will eventually clog the filter. It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully.

Flameer First Impressions

"STICK WITH THE ORIGINAL."

I missed it in my opinion these filters are a must have. Keep your stocking of creatures low. They are easy to clean but are very small. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic. This improves flow and prolongs time between cleaning. 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.

"5 gallon tank."

Within a matter of hours I now have a crystal clear tank with pristine water. I had to rinse the sponges after about 2. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic. If you have several aquariums, use separate UPS backups. Lets start with the amount of filter material you get. I took off two points because the pictures are misleading. It eventually begins to decompose into ammonia which is harmful to your fish.

"Go with the Whisper."

The best part about these in my opinion, is the price. Replace prefilter on pump inlet while filter is running. So here is the product size on the boxes that isn't included in the description! It's a pain in the butt to put together the directions don’t do it that well. I'm using this pad to HOB filters AC70 bottom and top of it’s sponge. I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings. Cut slightly oversized, it seems very effective as a particulate filter.

"I had one break easily."

The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. Customizable in terms of media used. Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive! Keep your stocking of creatures low. I changed water 4 days in a row and still cloudy. I don't advise using a UG filter as the only filtration source in large tanks. I had to take a blade and run it through all the slats because the factory doesnt q.

Replace prefilter on pump inlet while filter is running. I don't advise using a UG filter as the only filtration source in large tanks. Customizable in terms of media used.

"5 gallon tank."

Replace prefilter on pump inlet while filter is running. I had a 90 gallon aquarium that I did not use an undergravel filter in. It made no sense why one was ten and the other was twenty. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. Better than branded media filters cartridges. The air stones, plastic tubing, and charcoal were provided which one would expect. It was nicely packaged and is a high quality filter material.

"I use this on each level."

That's a long time if you knew how nasty that many shrimp and minnows can be! TopFin frame is on the left, Tetra on the right. And provide a few low current areas in the tank for fish who are stressed to rest. It was exactly what I needed and fit beautifully. A great addition to the filtration system. I have been using an Aquaclear 50 on a 20g long planted tank. Why not save some money to put towards more fish or supplies.

"Hope this helps!"

If your looking for a great media pad, stop here and order this! I also suppose my measuring tape may be off, but I would not think so. My tank is 12x36 so I utilized 3 of the panels. Every tank should have intake sponges. I end up cutting a small 2x3 inch square for each of my media baskets. I've saved so much money since switching, plus my tank stays cleaner. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic.

"It is what i wanted."

Works well for my low flow Aquaclear 20. I had to rinse the sponges after about 2. It's a pain in the butt to put together the directions don’t do it that well. It was nicely packaged and is a high quality filter material. Lets start with the amount of filter material you get. These have prevented my original problem. The foam is not coarse as illustrated; it's finer and denser.
