“Well Crafted Micron Filter”
4.5

I just set this thing up on my 150 gallon fish only tank. I have it running with a high powered UV sterilizer and it produces crystal clear water. It is very well crafted, is easy to set up, and is easy to maintain. I was also having a problem with micro bubbles that were generated in the sump from ...Read More

“excellent product.”
5.0

Very high quality construction. It does exactly what it claims it does and does it well. It removes particles and polishes the water. I have mine inline with my sump pump returning to my main tank. The pressure gauge lets me know when it's clogged and the clear case lets me see when it's getting dir...Read More

“Crystal Clear Water!”
4.5

Bought this as a polisher to use on my return pump to my 180G reef tank. I was having a pretty hard time with micro bubbles and this guy completely solved it. After 24 hours there is a night and day difference in my water clarity. For reference, my return pump is a Mag 12. The only reason I...Read More

“life saver - crystal clear H2O”
5.0

I didn't wash my GFO before putting it in the reactor and attatching to the tank - my tank looked like a car rusted to death in it, it was a horrible experience. After a day and a half it was barely any better. I figured I should try something I assumed was not needed on a reef tank with a sump - a ...Read More

“Almost Perfect”
4.0

High quality filter. The only problem is that you must make sure the lid is tightened very well, or it leaks. Other than that, it is a great product.
