Rated 5 out of 5 by valkyriemome Great filter for the price
I have axolotls, which are extraordinarily dirty little amphibians. Additionally, they cannot tolerate a great deal of water flow. This filter works excellently for them. It is easy to clean, which is a huge bonus, since I have to rinse it out at least once a week (I said they are dirty!). The pump to get the filter going again is a huge help. The spray bar diffuses the water flow output. Since I installed this filter, my axolotl water has been crystal clear - which is a first in my time having them!

I have two. A 400 and a 500. They run strong and have great media capacity. No need to buy a UV sterilizer, it comes with one, saving at least 100 dollars. Extra quiet too. Price is right, great filters!

This is a really nice filter, It went together semi ok. There could be more pics in the (manual) a folded piece of paper with a staple in the middle of it. But once you throw it aside, (The manual) and think logic you will do better. No where in the (manual) does it mention the UV power switch. I found it quite by accident. It is under the clear dome on top of the filter. You do not need any thing else. It is ready to go. You may want extra ceramic rings. The filter comes with some pretty cool bio balls, but there is room for more. and the more the better.
A note: Not a prob, but I did not get a coarse filter pad. My unit came with only three fine pads. Bio balls, and carbon. No corse pad.

I have used hang on filters for ever and someone told me to try this. I got one and it worked better then the filter that I had on my tanks for over a year.. Water is so clear and stays clear that I came back and got 2 more so not I have them on all my Cichlid freshwater tanks.. I will tell you this is a must and so easy to set up .. You will be happy you did ..Thanks for the best money on filters I ever spent
