These are so loud if the tank isn't filled literally to the brim. One day of evaporation and they're noisy already. Spend more and get something better - these are not worth the hassle. Pain to clean also.
I wouldn't go as far as calling them workhorses, but maybe?

I picked one of these up last time and one of my 5 gallon tanks got cloudy since a clam died.. well was partially eaten.

It took over 24 hours to really clear the water up and I added extra (3-4 tablespoons or more) BRS carbon in a bag. Also, the flow was meh and I doubt this would handle a 20-30 gallon tank as it mentions.

I also had a heck of a time priming the darn thing, but maybe it was related to the fact that the tank was not deep enough for the full extension bar.

In addition, it is very loud even without the bio-wheel. Fine for during the day, but if it's in a bedroom the inhabitant will likely complain.

Take the rating divided by 3 will probably be more accurate. I use these in a planted aquarium so filtration level isn't much of an issue. They're much quieter than a bubble filter.

Also they are about to change the design of the filters so all stores are going to start clearances on these. Usually also means the filter cartridges are going to change too

strangely, the person in the room did not complain about the air bubbler in the tank before this filter went in. Tank had no filtration before and it was only getting oxygen via a surface airstone that would not sink.

I need a filter, but the subscribe and save option worries me. Options from every 2 weeks to every 6 months. How often should I expect to need a new one?

You don't need to replace the filter unless it breaks. It's a one time purchase.

Pro move: order it, set to 6 months replenishment. When you get the kit, go back into your account subscriptions and cancel your subscription to it. And as for filters, make some DIY with filter media and just reuse it. Changing out those filter slides are bad as they remove important bacteria that breaks down waste.

I tend to agree with the fact that these filters are workhorse filters and rarely need replaced.
I suggest replacing the filter cartage with these sponge > https://www.amazon.com/Aquaclear-...JHBC&psc=1

I use the 200 model filter's on 2 - 29gal and 2 - 20gal tanks for the past decade without any issues.
When the tank is filled to the correct level these filters are Dead Silent. I'll be picking a couple more up just for the parts as the impeller's do eventually get worn and need replacement. (like 20+ years)

also @duijver trying to filter a half filled 5 gal tank with this won't work it's simple the wrong filter for the job.
They make small submersible filters for this purpose.
Example > https://www.amazon.com/GMsound-Aq...193&sr=1-9

I don't have any experience with that exact model but I have used submersible filters in tanks for frogs and mudskippers. A hang on the back filter is simply not the right tool for the job.

Thanks. Bought one for my 10 gal Top Fin from PetSmart. They never have the PF-L filters in stock. Read on numerous forums that they recommend marineland.

I have 50 gallon tank with a big Topfin filter.

Can I use 2 of these filters in my tank ? It has two slots for filters but currently has one large one.
