The coarse sponge makes for an abundant surface area for proper biological filtration by promoting bacterial growth to effectively remove waste, excess food and harmful ammonia and nitrates.

    Clear as crystal As an fish tank owner for over 15 years, I’d always had the big old Penguin on the back of the tank. Reliable. Sometimes noisy. But it got the job done.Recently the Penguin gave up the ghost. I decided to upgrade. I could not be happier. I am wondering why I didn’t do it sooner. (And so are my fish.)I’d read several people say it was hard to hook up. I didn’t have that experience. The tubes went on with a little muscle, and I guess if you’re a 90 pound gal, it might offer some resistance. Another review said he got different tubes instead of the ones that came with the unit. I don’t see a need to do that. They’re stiff, but more than get the job done. Another note, mine came with the filter media pre-loaded. I had to take the carbon mesh bag out of the plastic it came in. I bought media for it with the “buy this with this” option. Now I have media for when I need it. The priming of the pump was not the “press it four times and it will fill in a minute” the…

    great filter, better company I have a cascade 700 canister in my 40 gallon heavily planted tank and it’s a truly wonderful filter. It was easy to set up. It’s powerful (all of my plants wave in the currents created by the spray bar and the fish seem to enjoy playing in it). My water is crystal clear and I love that I can put whatever media I want into the filter baskets. Best of all, the filter is really easy to clean: disconnect the hoses, carry the filter to the sink, replace the filter floss, reconnect the hoses, and plug it back in.Last week one of my shut-off valves started dripping. I e-mailed Penn Plax to ask them where I could buy a new one and they replied to my e-mail within about 2 hours asking for my address and apologizing for the inconvenience. Today a large brown delivery truck arrived with a pair of new filters. I’m overjoyed. This is an awesome company.
