    Top Fin® Undergravel Filter is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I love this filter design better then the previous 2 piece design. The bottom plate is now many snap together rubbery pieces instead of the old 2 piece rigid plastic that didn't really fit the 10 gal tank it was suppose to fit and broke easily. The new design allows for a good fit in the bottom of the tank and there is enough extra pieces, because the package says fits 10-40 gallon tanks, I am even playing with making a couple of smaller decorative plant/fish tanks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good! (Brings back good old memories.) I bought this Undergravel Filter today. Its running good. I am using it on my 10 gallon aquarium. Easy set-up. The only downwall is the tubes are tall as a ten gallon aquarium (height wise)... so I trimmed about 1 inch of the bottom tube and now its better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent modular unit I simply use these as the bottom layer to anchor plants with a dab of modelling clay, and then overlay with a layer of gravel.I simply use the tubes to suck out waste water during water changes. I have a separate power filter. Works for my purposes.Helps minimize the weight of the aquarium as you do not need several layers of gravel to anchor plants.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't fit my 10 gallon tank without modifications Bought the under gravel filter for aesthetics and it did not fit my ten gallon tank about 2 inches too wide. This was for a new tank. Really liked it, so I decided to modify it to fit by using a flush cut hand saw which cut through relatively easy. If you are going to do this make sure the connection tabs are in the right place for assembly before cutting. Will be using this in addition to a sponge filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from what the site fails to mention in the description is that the "canasters" are filled with carbon. i bought the large filter as i have a 45 gal tank and i wasnt sure if ut would be big enough to cover a 36"x12" bottom. but it fit perfectly. its actually just several peices (a lot of pieces actually) that slide together like a puzzle. this alliws you to add more if you need it even larger or make it smaller if you dont need it that big. another thing i really liked is that the pieces are not just plastic, its more rubbery so it bends instead of just snapping and breaking. now onto the tubes. theu are actually two tubes that are adjustable. so it allows you to set wht hight in your tank you want the water fliw coming out at. my tank iis pretty tall so they dont reach the top of the water but thwy are only a few inches from the waters serfice. the is a great product and i love it. im usong this in combination with a marineland bio filter. i can already tell my water ia clearer and its only been a few hours!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not quite what I expected this isn't the old rigid plastic undergravel plate I was expecting. This is a much softer plastic. Also was frustrated to discover that one large box of 24 plates does NOT even come close to covering the bottom of my 40 gal breeder tank. If you are buying these for a 40 gal breeder you will need 1 large and 1 small box.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design Bought this to replace an older under gravel filter that had become old and brittle. Says it's for a 10 gallon tank but there is no way possible as the tubes are too tall and don't even go into the tank and there is no way to shorten the tubes any further. Taking this product back. Made a special trip to the store for an under gravel filter and was a wasted trip as now I have to make another trip to return it.

    No just the tiles. Lift tubes. Carbon cartridges and tubes with airstones

    Will the large work for a 10 gallon tank and what size pump works?

    Asked by: MJKD
    You'll need the small size. It comes with 14 tiles enough to fit it. And a pump that's fit for a 19gallon.

    Do we need an air pump with this filter? We are using it for a red clawed crab.

    Asked by: Dawn3816
    No you don't. I use a powerhead on the lift tubes, this works a lot better than using air stones...

    do you need an air pump to operate this filter ?

    Asked by: dennis57
    Yes. I use ONE Aqueon 100 air pump. It has two air outlets, has built in check valves and pumps enough air to move the water. Im using this filter on 7 gallon nano cube from my lfs. Crystal clear water without powerheads and my guppies are breeding in it. No ammonia, no nitrites, barely traceable nitrates. Started with dr Tim’s one and only nitrifying bacteria.  ANOTHER option is to use powerheads. Depends on what kind of fish you have though and how much current they can handle.

    Will this filter work for 5.5 gallon tank??

    Asked by: JheiMiee
    It should since it’s adjustable. Always keep your receipt. If it doesn’t work out, clean it with hot water, take it back to the store and get a different type of filter such as a sponge filter or HOB (hang on back).
