This "little "sponge filter works very well and allows me to use it in small (2.5 gal) tank. It is well made and provides great aereation (sp?).

I keep fancy guppies and was looking for a little extra filtration for the guppy-fry tanks and this filter looked like a good answer. Unfortunately, this filter has a basic problem; it floats and does not sit on the bottom—even when gravel is piled around it. I tried replacing the stones used for weights in the canister with other pebbles and nothing in my substantial fish keeping arsenal would solve the problem.
<br>The filter seems well made; I only wish it worked as well as it looks. I would have given it one star because it doesn’t work in my situation, but some fish keepers probably won’t mind having it float around their aquariums.

Does it come with a air pump or power head?<br><br><i><b>That Fish Place: Hi Ray! Thanks for checking in with us. This item is just the Air Filter, you would need to get an air pump or power head to run the filter. For that size, we would recommend the <a href="http://www.thatpetplace.com/whisper-10-aquarium-air-pump-10-gal?sc=10&category=1691" class="copylink">Whisper 10 Air Pump</a> or the <a href="http://www.thatpetplace.com/aqua-clear-20-power-head-old-201" class="copylink">Aqua Clear 20 Power Head</a>. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!</b></i>
Great filter, only issue is that it floats. I had to use aquarium decorations to to keep it under the water.
A POSSIBLE RESOLUTION FOR FLOATING FILTER
A little tip to those who say their filter floats. I had the same problem until I squeezed the foam when submersed in aquarium and then filter settled right where I wanted.
