"Overall a good product!"

Especially if you have a take with shrimp or baby fish. But a small simple rubber band fixed the issue quickly. I purchase the 8 pack size Large and fits great on my TopFin 40 Gallon Filter. Plenty strong to support the rocks and gravel in my tank without sagging. It's a pain in the butt to put together the directions don’t do it that well. I don't advise using a UG filter as the only filtration source in large tanks. I don't advise using a UG filter as the only filtration source in large tanks.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"They work great!"

Just be careful punching out the plastic. I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. 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. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. I was having a problem with tiny fish getting sucked into the inlets.

"I cycle lots of tanks."

Because they are the smart thing to do when you keep aquariums. Luckily I'm using powerheads and the weight of it helps hold it in place. You can put power heads on the riser tubes to increase the flow through the filter. I was having a problem with tiny fish getting sucked into the inlets. Work perfect on my shrimp tank to keep them out of the filter. I just changed it today and the water is crystal clear-- no problems. Small amounts of these bubbles can also help oxygenate the water over time.

"It's absolutely perfect."

TopFin frame is on the left, Tetra on the right. I purchased these for an aquarium at school. We operate a saltwater bait store, dealing in live shrimp and bull minnows. The more you overpopulate your tank, the more frequently you'll have to do this. TopFin frame is on the left, Tetra on the right. I just changed it today and the water is crystal clear-- no problems. These have prevented my original problem.

Fun to modify your filter and clean tank as well. Don't restrict air-flow around them as they do get quite warm. It was nicely packaged and is a high quality filter material. Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic.

FL!PPER Final Thoughts

"Hand down the best."

If you have several aquariums, use separate UPS backups. Of course you will need to let the silicone cure before installing in water. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. The air stones, plastic tubing, and charcoal were provided which one would expect. It comes with carbon filters, and air stones. In 20 gallon and under sized tanks these start becoming feasible primary filters.

Penn-Plax CFU29 First Impressions

"Works well."

Work perfect on my shrimp tank to keep them out of the filter. The filters fit fine and I was happy to see that some carbon packs were included. But a small simple rubber band fixed the issue quickly. I use two layers of floss before the water goes to and through my chemical media. I have been using an Aquaclear 50 on a 20g long planted tank. Right now I am letting the filter work it's magic. You can cap off the ones you don't want to use.

"5 gallon enchant tank."

It comes with the filter bag, bag frame, and charcoal media all separate. This filter system doesn't come with everything to you need. I have found you really have to scrub the outside to get everything cleaned out. I had to rinse the sponges after about 2. But a small simple rubber band fixed the issue quickly. My pad collected yellow cloudy color also all waste. Fun to modify your filter and clean tank as well.

"They do the job well!"

The foam is not coarse as illustrated; it's finer and denser. Outside tank on deck with just a few fish. I just changed it today and the water is crystal clear-- no problems. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. The box comes with super easy and clear instructions. Lets start with the amount of filter material you get. Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive!

MarineLand PA0139-03 Final Thoughts

"The hole is smaller."

You can put power heads on the riser tubes to increase the flow through the filter. The first 3 pics are of my RR tank with sump. Better than branded media filters cartridges. The concentration of flow will mean faster clogging, lower flow and motor strain. Never use live rooting plants with UG filters. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. You can run everything on battery backup sockets.

"ALL I can say is wow."

I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. The material is a soft and not abrasive at all. Cut slightly oversized, it seems very effective as a particulate filter. Customizable in terms of media used. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings.

Elite A62 Final Thoughts

"Great product."

Especially if you have a take with shrimp or baby fish. I will update more pictures later, once the water isnt cloudy. It eventually begins to decompose into ammonia which is harmful to your fish. I don't advise using a UG filter as the only filtration source in large tanks. This is a lot of filter pad for your money. We use this product to the extreme. Once you do have everything it's a good running system.

8. Aquarium Carbon Pad - Cut to Fit Carbon Infused Filter Pad Media for Crystal Clear Fish Tank and Pon...

User Ratings: 75

Aquatic Experts First Impressions

"Overall a good product!"

You may notice this brand is lower cost than some others. The measurements are about 9 cm long x 4 cm wide and the hole is about 2 cm. The Tetra Medium bio-bag slip easily on an original Top Fin plastic holder. I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. The best part about these in my opinion, is the price. But if you don't weekly vacuum it up, it will eventually clog the filter. It comes with the filter bag, bag frame, and charcoal media all separate.

  • Aquarium Carbon Pad - Cut to Fit Carbon Infused Filter Pad Media for Crystal Clear Fish Tank and Ponds
  • EASY TO USE - The activated carbon filter pad replaces loose carbon in your aquarium. Our charcoal filter pads perform the same duty as activated carbon granules without the mess of spilled carbon and carbon dust particles in your aquarium. Cut your aquarium carbon pad to fit your filter, rinse, and it is ready to go!
  • CUT TO FIT - The carbon filter pads can be CUT TO FIT VIRTUALLY ANY FILTER. They work well in freshwater and saltwater aquariums and even ponds. Whatever filter you use, the carbon filter pad will work for you! Buying in bulk WILL SAVE YOU EVEN MORE MONEY over purchasing ready-made pre-cut filter material. Carbon pad measures 10.5" x 72" and 3/8" - 1/2" thick.
  • ELIMINATES ODOR AND DISCOLORATION! - Activated carbon, also known as activated charcoal, removes foul odors from aquarium and pond water LEAVING A CRISP CLEAN SMELL. The thin carbon coating creates a large surface area for the carbon to trap and remove water discoloration, residual medications, toxins, pollutants and more to keep your water crystal clear.
  • INCREASE WATER QUALITY – Changing the aquarium carbon filter pad regularly WILL INCREASE WATER QUALITY by removing solid organic compounds before they break down.
  • TOUGH AND DURABLE - The strong fibers of our charcoal fish tank filters can take a lot of punishment, even standing up to outdoor pond use. The fish tank carbon filter has no risk of ripping and spilling carbon in your tank. Made in the USA.

Aquatic Experts Final Thoughts

"Very easy to do."

And provide a few low current areas in the tank for fish who are stressed to rest. Nitrates in small doses are not as harmful to the fish as Ammonia. I will update more pictures later, once the water isnt cloudy. Small amounts of these bubbles can also help oxygenate the water over time. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. Ignore all the noise about them being outdated they are a must-have buy it. You can also buy solutions that have the bacteria in them to also get started faster.

N.1 First Impressions

"STICK WITH THE ORIGINAL."

For obvious reasons, don't put them directly above or below a tank. Within a matter of hours I now have a crystal clear tank with pristine water. This filter system doesn't come with everything to you need. Keep your stocking of creatures low. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. I changed water 4 days in a row and still cloudy. I double the size and fold them and put the bagged carbon between the layers.

"It's worth that price."

I missed it in my opinion these filters are a must have. We rinse the filters 2x a day and they remain in continuous 24 hour operation. Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive! The UG is certainly no exception to that. Much better than the cartridges you get when you buy the filters. But by two weeks, the output did drop. Stop buying those expensive filters, buy this and make your own.

"Good product."

But by two weeks, the output did drop. Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers. These work great as pre filter sponge on my quiet flow 10. Better than branded media filters cartridges. Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress. Every tank should have intake sponges. The injection molding for the plastics leave a lot to be desired.

"Thank you, Marineland!"

It includes 12 mesh filter bags& 12 packets of charcoal. Plenty strong to support the rocks and gravel in my tank without sagging. Any floating debri will get caught in a sponge intake on the reverse power head kit. Much better than the cartridges you get when you buy the filters. We operate a saltwater bait store, dealing in live shrimp and bull minnows. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. The injection molding for the plastics leave a lot to be desired.
