Rated 2 out of 5 by nudgey the 10i stinks, the 40i is better, bio bags do not fit, use tetra filter bags only
tetra needs to redesign the filter to allow the cartridges to seed properly otherwise you get blow by

Rated 3 out of 5 by RDHmom Good while it lasted
This stopped working after 5 months. Was decent during that time, quiet. Used in 10 gal. Freshwater tank. I made a cover for it with a black lid from a coffee canister be use I disliked the open view on the top of this filter-maybe doesn't have lid due to option of having fully submersed?...I had top exposed about 1-2" above water level.

It's OK but I won't get a filter from y'all again unless I can control the current. I literally just bought this filter and I can't stand it. My betta refuses to swim when it is turned on because the current is too strong. It seems the only way to get a filter that I can control the current is to buy a whole new tank setup.

I actually was wondering about this filter for quite some time and was wanting to put it in my betta tank but never got around to buying it by itself. As it would happen, the next time I bought a half moon 10 gallon kit, this little nightmare can as the filter. At first I was really happy with it as it was super quiet and kept the tank clean, but a week later I could not find anything I liked about it. Nothing had changed except for the fact that water would shoot out the top of the filter and run down the wall and cord strait to the power strip. No matter what I did, hang the cord higher, loop the cord up to three times, lower the water level, or put a piece of packing tape over the top every morning, I would always come home to a soaked floor and a half full tank.
