Great Filter 3/6/2013
Reviewer: Mike G
I have been an aquarist since the early 1970's. I like this filter as well as any I have tried. I have 58 gallon tank with 4 adult discus in it. I have used this filter on it for almost 7 years now and it has performed magnificently. I did need to replace the cover gasket after afew years, as well as the impeller assembly, but they lasted over 4 years each and the replacements still work great.
Not bad - but strange fractures appear 11/28/2012

I used this filter for about a score on a 55 gallon freshwater aquarium and it did great - crystal clear water when the media was applied and changed regularly. Unfortunately, one day it developed a strange fracture in the canister itself, and I couldn't track down a replacement.
