Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovefishes Best Filter System to buy for your Aquarium
We just bought a second one, to have as a spare. We did have an issue with our first one, however it has a 3 mfg warranty, so I called them and they are send us the part we need to fix the problem. Our Aquarium looks so clean and clear it is beautiful. This is the Best Filter ever and with the best warranty. You can beat the price either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeremy6 Work Great but a little loud
It works great my water is crystal clear, but I have mine in my room and it is a little loud,but I still can easily sleep with it on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JLGuitar357 DO NOT PURCHASE ANY TETRA FILTER!
So today I came home to find that the gasket on the flitter has broke. Luckily I have a second filter running on the tank so I was able to unplug this one completely. Because the gasket broke, there was water spraying all over the room the fish tank is in. If I didn't catch what happened sooner, I could've had serious damage to the floors because they are wood. I would not recommend this to anybody because I have looked online since this happened to me and it seems as if this is a common thing to occur. I have ran different filters by other brands for several years without any problems and this happened after having the filter running for not even two weeks! This will be the last time I ever use a filter made by tetra. Even if they fix this problem on newer models of there filters, I have lost trust in this company's filters, and maybe the company as a whole! I hope this review helps you to stay away from this terrible filter!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jordan23 Loud with a poor design
The filter is extremely loud and I suspect that it isn't working. Despite a frequent water and filter change, an odor exists. Parts fall off with the slightest bump (by the fish) and I have to "fish" them out constantly. I have to unplug at night just to silence it so that I can sleep. You can hear it through 2 closed doors and it's hard to hear the TV over this filtration system. I did receive a replacement however it was as loud as the original right out of the box. Although still under warranty, I am responsible for the return shipping. I don't know whether to return or just trash this product and cut my losses. On a bright note, all of the people in Customer Service are terrific.
