Tetra 26164 First Impressions

Overall fairly easy.

I have been using an Aquaclear 50 on a 20g long planted tank. Much better than the cartridges you get when you buy the filters. Fill with the supplied carbon and voila. Also work great as filler for canisters and other filters. If your looking for a great media pad, stop here and order this! So stock your tanks a few fish at a time. Does the job and price was less or at least same as big retailers.

Tetra 26164 Final Thoughts

Excellent media!

Better than branded media filters cartridges. It was easy to assemble and very effective! It works okay for now but I hope it does not mess up my filter in the long run. I took off two points because the pictures are misleading. Make sure to select the Medium size from Tetra. For obvious reasons, don't put them directly above or below a tank. The first piece does get a bit dirty and usually only lasts a week.
