Includes a large sized cartridge to get you started. For more information on Power Filters, please see power aquarium filter basics ;
Oxygenates water really well! It is quiet, and primes itself. Great filter at a great price!
I like this filter and I've had other types and brands.We have power interuptions on occation and other filters don't self prime. The filters overheat trying to reprime itself. This Aqueon filter will self p[rime.

works great in my 30 gal. Bowfront. Just very noisy like a waterfall. Other wise great product
Good flow, too much bubbles 9/17/2013
In my freshwater tank this is a great powerful filter, but in my saltwater tank which is why I bought this one it puts too many bubbles in my reef tank. my opinion obviously but I don't like a lot of bubbles in my reef tank! I would love it in my African cichlid tanks though!
Works well, but noisy 7/24/2013

Compared to the QuietFlow 30 that we were previously using, the 50 is noisy. For only a 25% increase in flow, there is a significant increase in noise. There are both vibrating sounds from the motor as well as water splashing sounds
Powerful filter 3/7/2013
The Aqueon 50 works great in my 30 g tank. Motor is quiet, the flow is pretty strong and you hear a loud waterfall as the water returns to the tank, but it is not an unpleasant sound. Only con to this filter is no way to adjust the flow.
