Watched Aquarium Co-op Video

It has been years since I had an aquarium. Started watching Aquarium Co-op videos and had to dive back in. Aquariums are very soothing. Anyway, the video on amping up your filtration made so much sense. I bought this to go with my Aquaclear and it works great. Water is crystal clear and the planted tank is beautiful. I'm a gardener so aquarium gardening is a brand new theme. Love it!

Brilliant idea, Crap material

This is a wonderful idea to add a sponge filter to the existing filter, especially for a fry tank or a shrimp tank. It add more bio filtration to the tank and keep all the small animals from trapping in the filter. However, the manufacturer use the cheapest plastic available on the market to make this, resulting in cracking parts. I bought eight of these because I got quite a few tanks, unfortunately, Most of the plastic jointing has a few crack line in them even before I touch them. The plastic is already cheap, the price is not low, I don't understand why the manufacture can't make the plastic wall of the fitting tube a little bit thicker, make their product a little bit stronger. Again, it won't cost them much to do that. I already broke two jointing tube just trying to fit them and I was so gentle. Therefore, what I am paying for is the idea, not the quality. I wish I could figure out how to find the right size PVC pipe to replace all these crappy paper thin plastic fitting tube.

Cracked Elbow

I really like this product. However, one of the elbows was cracked about half way when I received it. I notified the staff and they sent me out a new one. Great product and better service. I will always shop Aqurium Co-Op for all my food and supplies.
