Quitest Filter 10/28/2012
Bought this filter as a replacement to a Fluval. You can not here this filter run at all. I am using it on a 35 Gallon tank. The tank is crystal clear.
A little tough to put together had to watch a youtube video on it since most of the instructions are are not clear. Also a little hard to get the medium for the filter petco or petsmart do not carry it. So I just order online.
Very happy with the results so far.
Not enough flow 7/9/2012
With a flow rate of 116 gph, this will filter the aquarium's volume just over two times every hour. This is not nearly enough for a 55 gallon aquarium, you want the volume filtered 4-5 times every hour for canister filters. This filter would be suitable for a 20 gallon aquarium, but will be lacking by itself for anything much larger.
