Rated 5 out of 5 by cmclien Great Filter and Roomy Box
I bought this filter and attached it to my Tetra 500g pump. It comes with two large sponges to hold nitrifying bacteria and keep your pond free of ammonia and nitrites. There is a nice amount of room under the sponges that I put in a pound of Seachem Matrix. This keeps my nitrates at about 10ppm and from rising further.

Filter unit does a ok job filtering pond water. I found that the unit will wants rise upward's from the bottom. I placed a flat rock inside the unit to hold it down. Quality of material, fair. However when I removed the cover (to clean the filters) both tabs that held the cover in place snapped off or broke off. I have used large rubber-bands or very long wire tire wrapped around the filter to hold the cover in place. Filters, collect seeds, and is difficult to remove seed and algae from fine cell filter. Make sure you purchase extra filter materials. I used garden hose pressure to clean them. Larger item filtering is average I have to stir the water on the bottom of pond. No fish in this pond. The course filter is a light duty filter material and tears easy. Filter needed to be cleaned at lest every two weeks.
