Fusion Aquarium Air Pumps
Starting at: $5.99
Fusion Aquarium Air Pumps
are perfect for your air accessory needs. They provide ample power to run several accessories while running whisper quiet.Available in 6 sizes to suit your demands, models 400-700 feature a patented baffle system which allows you to control the flow of air with a simple turn of the dial. Each pump carries a 3-year Limited Manufacturer Warranty.
I purchased the Fusion 700 pump to power a single sponge filter in my 90-gallon African Cichlid aquarium after a That Fish Place employee recommended I do so to supplement my Fluval 406 canister to help boost the biological filtration and cut down on nitrates. The employee did NOT recommend a particular pump; just that I add the sponge filter. So I picked this one up for its price and SUPPOSED capacity. It worked for awhile, and then the sponge filter stopped bubbling entirely. I noticed the output was directly-related to the depth of the airstone-- close to the surface, it worked fine, but once submerged about 12 inches, the output dropped off exponentially until there was no flow at all at the bottom of the 24" high tank. I wish I had just purchased a quality pump from the beginning, because now I have to replace it. Additionally, the construction of this pump is cheap. It is bulky, unattractive, and unnecessarily large. I strongly recommend AGAINST buying this pump.
They run for years 9/29/2016
I have 8 of of these and say that are VERY reliable and even withstand water back flow due to a faulty air valve. They are also very easy to clean and repair. And you can adjust them very accurately. People that give them a bad rating must be idiots or the bad ratings are posted by competitors. Buy them, they are awesome.

I have two Fusion pumps. I had one working in the tank for about two years when it started to get noisy. I put my reserve Fusion 700 into service only to find it stopped working after 24 hours. I tried to order parts from JW Pet which I found to be impossible. It's the worst pump I've ever owned and plan to go back to my Whisper pumps. At least I can get parts to repair the diaphragm when I need to. The FishPlace does not carry repair kits for the Fusion pump and neither does Amazon.com It's a piece of junk and I think TheFishPlace needs to remove it from stock. For those who have had luck with this pump, congratulations but when it fails, you'll be in the same situation as the rest of us who got a lemon. It's nothing but a piece of junk and I can see why JW Pet doesn't want to provide service for them. I'm returning mine to the store ASAP.

have had two go out within 3 months usage. Would not recommend to anyone, including the in-laws. The pumps are noisy and quit pumping air.

Received my Fusion 500 on 6/3 it ran until 8/3 then died. To send it back via the warranty you have to pay to ship it and include $5 for them to ship it back after it's fixed.. that's more then I paid for it!! Emailed The Pet Place and asked if I could exchange it with out a box, they sent me a replacement no questions asked. My rating is for the pump not The Pet Place.. they are a 10 Star company.
