Do not,I repeat NOT, buy this product. I bought the first one and after about 2 months my tank didn't seem to be getting clean and the filter was making an awful grinding sound. I thought maybe I just got a bad one or it got damaged from a move I recently made. However, I bought abother one and the exact same thing happened! I took the filter apart and cleaned it thinking maybe it was the little bit of sand from the tank... but it didn't help at all. I guess I shouldn't have been optimistic and bought it twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dibarnes Great Product
I have a 60 gal tank which I use for turtles I the winter time. I have 2 filters on a 60 gallon tank which I keep 1/3 full. Keeps the water clean even with the 3o feeder fish I start out the winter with. It's quite easy to change bio bags and clean both filters in less than 30 minutes. I had a problem (customer caused) with one of the filter I had bought 3-4 years ago, and called Tetra for a replacement part. They advised the part was not available but dent me a new filter fee of charge. That is great customer service. Thanks!!!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by crabmaster sand might halt filter
If you use sand in your tank might have to do more matinance. Sometime sand night get stuck in the filter, if you pull the filter apart and pull the fan out you need to clean the sand out of that and it should work fine. The manual doesn't tell you this, I had to figure it out on my own, otherwise it's is a great filter for a crab tank since you can't use external filters for them (darn escape artists)

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoeyB Works great
I have a 1.5 gallon tank for a Beta so I use the 3i filter. It does a great job and is nice and quiet except for the power box (?) that's attached to the cord and tube. It rattles so I put it on a small cloth to stop the sound.
