Well Crafted Micron Filter

REVIEW
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.

REVIEW
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

REVIEW
After years of experience dealing with both American and European equipment, I have to admit that from an engineering point of view, this filter is one of the best designs I have come across. It easily rivals any of the German units I used in Europe and that is saying something! The 'add on' extensi...Read More

Crystal Clear Water!

REVIEW
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

REVIEW
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

REVIEW
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.
