Penn-Plax CCF5UL First Impressions

It's absolutely perfect.

Fish that are constantly swimming hard will tire and die from stress. I have been buying these bags for years. Nitrates in small doses are not as harmful to the fish as Ammonia. I bought these because I was afraid my shrimp were getting sucked up in the filter. I have always had an undergravel filter and my aquariums. If you don't know much about this just google it. Tank is clean and all my new shrimp are still alive!

Penn-Plax CCF5UL Final Thoughts

Easy to handle.

Even its quite costly, but it last long. Cut slightly oversized, it seems very effective as a particulate filter. I've definitely noticed a difference in my water quality. Have been using this product for few month for my planted tank. The other tank is an old AIO retro tank I have with a media rack in it. I had to take a blade and run it through all the slats because the factory doesnt q. The more you overpopulate your tank, the more frequently you'll have to do this.
