How we use it
In our grow tanks, each aquarium has one that is filled with biological media in the canisters.
Why we like it
Well constructed, you can swap filter cartridges between filters to quickly cycle new tanks.
We had an aquarium stocked with 246 one inch angelfish, and this filter handled it. We now have 20+ of these.
A classic design, we use these in our fry tanks. We have a "large" size filter in each of our 10 gallon fry aquariums.
With other competitors, we found the sponge warped with time and fell off the stem after a few months. Not with these.
We have fixed airlines and just swap these around as required since they are so simple to pop into place.
For our large Altum angelfish pairing aquariums, these filters are tasked with keeping 180 gallon tanks clean.
These filters are BEASTS. We built custom spray bars out of PVC and they provide great water flow.
Every important piece of these filters can be replaced for a complete rebuild if ever required.
