I needed a new Quiet Power Filter, this one claimed it was such. So I tried it thinking it was going to be another noisy Power filter. but I was very much surprised by how quiet it is. and I like the easy change filter door. Great Improvements on this Power filter.

I am impressed with this filter. It's a quiet-running filter and a very good value. I see a difference in water clarity after only a few days of operation and I like the accessibility for the cartridges.

Since the 1970s I have fondly kept fish in tanks from 2.5 gallon to 135 gallon along with the occasional plastic garbage can. For several years now I have used two EX-45 filters on a 40 gallon 'breeder' tank with six jumbo goldfish. >>>The filter is very well designed and highly effective.<<< It performs best with frequent change-outs of the filter pad. By shopping carefully the cost of the pads can be minimized. A couple of times a year the 'bio-sludge' portion of the filter fills completely and needs to be emptied. You can tell it is time for a 'sludge' clean-out when the rate of water flow drops. After removing the 'sludge' it is vital to use a microbial nitrification supplement. Otherwise the microbial supplement is important after the weekly or biweekly water change-out.

This is great and it filters the water very quietly and efficiently. It's about five feet away from my bed and it's perfectly fine. But whenever I stop the. Filter and it drys in the back and then I plug it in again it rattles around and maked a lot of noise for about a day but then it's fine. This filter also puts oxygen in the water if the water level is kinda low but I have two goldfish (dirty fish) in a ten gallon tank and I am planning to get more fish of different species and since this is recommended for 20 gallon tanks it will keep my tank twice as clean lol I hope overall a great filter and it works fantastic.
