Fluval A480A1 First Impressions

5 minutes of work!

The filter material itself is good quality material too that doesn't break open. Customizable in terms of media used. Small amounts of these bubbles can also help oxygenate the water over time. Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress. The Tetra Medium bio-bag slip easily on an original Top Fin plastic holder. The measurements are about 9 cm long x 4 cm wide and the hole is about 2 cm. This is great for transporting aquarium life from location to location too.

Fluval A480A1 Final Thoughts

I had one break easily.

It comes with the filter bag, bag frame, and charcoal media all separate. Fun to modify your filter and clean tank as well. But by two weeks, the output did drop. Even its quite costly, but it last long. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. Don't get anything smaller than 750VA as you don't want to overload them. The UG is certainly no exception to that.
