Fluval A1490 First Impressions

This was a great deal.

Works well for my low flow Aquaclear 20. The foam is not coarse as illustrated; it's finer and denser. 7in, which is only about half the length of the unit. I have a Top Fin 10 power filter and these cartridges fit perfectly. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. I purchased these for an aquarium at school. I purchased this bulk filter media for a Fluval 207 canister filter.

Fluval A1490 Final Thoughts

I would buy it again.

The air stones, plastic tubing, and charcoal were provided which one would expect. The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. Within a matter of hours I now have a crystal clear tank with pristine water. It was easy to assemble and very effective! Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. I will update more pictures later, once the water isnt cloudy. Better than branded media filters cartridges.
