1. Zoo Med Labratories Repti Rapids LED Rock Waterfall, Small

Zoo Med 26372 First Impressions

"That said."

This filter worked exactly as it should. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. I believe I have never had a Marineland product before, and am generally impressed. I did everything to combat it that I could. I have a 29 gallon Oceanic Nanocube and have always had poor water circulation. Not having a free flow intake is what burns electric pump motors out. Just what I needed to fix my filter and avoid paying 200 bucks for a new one.

Zoo Med 26372 Final Thoughts

"They last a long time."

My loft gets lots of sun, so algae is a constant battle in my 60 gallon. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. Brand new out of the box and a great price. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Sure one would work okay, but two are optimal and your fish will thank you for it. I regularly test for nitrate, nitrite, total hardness, alkalinity, pH. The bubbles are noisier than an air-stone.

3. White Bristle Aquarium 63" Water Pump Tube Washing Brush, Blue

uxcell a14061900ux0021 First Impressions

"This worked perfect!"

The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. I was skeptical because of the price, but this thing really is a game changer! I have a 150 gallon aquarium with two Pacu's around 14 inches long. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it. Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. UV lights do loose their effectiveness over time. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place.

"Worked perfectly."

I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Replacing my 15 yr old aquarium hoses due to old one hardening. It's totally silent, runs very cool, and is reliable so far. Tubing worked out great with use on my Fluval 206. Doing the math, this system should be able to run for almost a year. Work well till the pump itself died. This UV sterilizer beat my expectations.

4. Fluval Output Nozzle for Vicenza and Venezia Aquarium Set

Fluval 15470 First Impressions

"Or leak water all over."

It replaced a Quiet1One 9000 pump which was nothing but trouble since I installed it. Arrived well packaged, brand new in original box, fast delivery via Amazon Prime. It would be best to replace the build in half that time. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. The most impressive thing about this pump is how quiet it is! I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived.

"So far, it's not working."

The pump is quiet and energy efficeint. Only four stars because I cant tell if the uv light is working while it's on. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Eheim is one of the best filters out there. Not a bad option for when you need an adjustment. The Seller quickly replaced the Venturi pump for me. And another and there's a decoration!

"Awesome device."

I put it in the aquarium, and took the first pic five minutes later. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. Great pump for CPR BakPak protein skimmer. Work well till the pump itself died. General and super ich cures seemed to only kill my wallet and change water color. Then there seemed to be an algal bloom. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful.

Van Enterprises Final Thoughts

"As described."

I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Smokes their DNA at the reproductive level making them sterile. The water is clearer than I've ever seen it. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Not a bad option for when you need an adjustment.

"Great Pump."

Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. The Aquatop seem and the flow feels more powerful. I removed the old pump from my Protein Skimmer and put this one in place. Second pic was taken 10 days later. Once I put this filter in I saw results in 2 days and better results by day 5. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it.

"The water is gorgeous."

I was happy to find the same barracuda pump at a reasonable price. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Until my local shop told me to get Eheims. Its pump apparentely was too small for the tank. There are two pieces of wood among the rocks. This had turned my tank from a black algae mess to Crystal clear. Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches.

Aquascape 33298 First Impressions

"These being 1600 GPH."

I wasn't sure it was even on when I plugged it in. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. The clip with prongs to keep the tube in place also doesn't fit and stay in place. Fit my Eheim Double Tap Quick Release perfectly. Very well-made product and fits on a filter I am using that is not from this company. Adjusted flow output by half and my aquarium is now crystal clear. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too.

The clip with prongs to keep the tube in place also doesn't fit and stay in place. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. Eheim has always been a dependable product. Arrived soon enough, and packaged adequately. Closing the shades and a massive water change could not hold it at bay.

8. 100197-2" Champion Water Pump Hose Kit

Champion Power Equipment First Impressions

"They last a long time."

I have high end pumps by Eheim and Danner for high flow applications. I would defiantly consider getting another. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U. They like lining up and swimming against it. The unit is silent as far as I can tell, unless you turn the bubbles on. I came home to a bloom explosion and water that looked like kiwi sangria. One the first few days the water was so cloudy I couldn't see the U.

"Thus, the first gen."

The unit is larger than I expected. I tried weekly 40% water changes, API Clear, and the algae just got worse. So now we all understand; this thing is legit. Best thing I've gotten for my tank in the year we’ve been fighting the algae issue. Third pic was taken 15 days after the first pic, 5 days after the second. German reputation for quality still lives on. I would've spent more on just an air pump and stone than I did for this.

Jebao SCP-150 First Impressions

"Works great!"

Just a quick note about UV sterilizers in general. I had to harness the power of the Sun and dunk it into my tank but it worked. The best price by far from anything i could find online. The flow rate is great for my 20 gallon. I can not say enough about this great product. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. A must for keeping ick at bay and snails and keeps you're water pretty too.

"A great product."

Absolutely love this product works amazing. I've had it running for almost a week, and it's basically silent. The two combined solved my dirty water problem within a few hours! I can not say enough about this great product. It's bulky and must be completely submerged so it's hard to miss in my tank. Company is very responsive to any questions or concerns. It's been YEARS and no nasty looking tubing.

"Did the job perfectly."

Also, added Value Pack-- Bonded Blue& White Poly Filter Pad Floss 600-square-inches. I ordered this Pump and the next day it arrived. The black and white pic is the tight shot to show the setup. The water is clear and fish are healthy. It works, but you may want to get some type of adapter to address this. If you're settling up any Eheim filter system, use the actual OEM green tubing. Pretty much a no brainer there if they offer it.

"A great product."

Has lasted a few years now without any problems. Love it, I have used it here and there for filling up my tanks easier. Another few days and a surface wipe down and I suspect I'll have crystal clear water. Not noisy, fine bubbles, fair price. I was also impressed with the different ways I could use this pump. This causes it to rattle and stop turning altogether. The replacement came and it rattled constantly.
