Fluval A1456 First Impressions

I use the APC brand.

I will be using Koral Filter material from now on. Don't restrict air-flow around them as they do get quite warm. The first 3 pics are of my RR tank with sump. You can cap off the ones you don't want to use. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. Of course you will need to let the silicone cure before installing in water. I end up cutting a small 2x3 inch square for each of my media baskets.

Fluval A1456 Final Thoughts

They work very well.

I have used UG filters for many years. You will also need to replace their rechargeable batteries about every 2 years or so. It comes with the filter bag, bag frame, and charcoal media all separate. I will always buy these here on Amazon for the price savings. It was a struggle to keep the water clear before i got the goldfish. I have been using an Aquaclear 50 on a 20g long planted tank. Every tank should have intake sponges.
