It's actually rather strong.

Great product. This sponge filter works the best out of all of the sponges I have used. it assembles and hooks up easily and doesn't take up nearly as much room as others I have used. I would definitely recommend to anyone with a ten gallon tank with fish like bettas that do not generally appreciate the strong currents that even the smallest filters provide. I also use it in my shrimp tank and it works perfectly in there. The directions are in Chinese but there is really no need for them. You simply hook the air line into the male end on the unit and put the suction cup on and put in the tank. I find that if you raise the sliding bubble vent all the way up it provides stronger filtration.

hook an bubbler up to it and it flows quite well.
I have this and a small hang on the back filter in my fry tank (hang on the back gets turned off when fry are present) and this filters as much or more than the power filter. the head is adjustable so you can easily raise or lower it so that the discharge is at the water line, and the part with the sponges can be rotated to be in whatever position meets your needs (i like having them down, gives the most length)

Filter seems sturdy. Suction cup held up well.

I originally intended this to be my primary filter. It seemed to do a good job filtering most of the debris. It functions well as an aerator.

The filters can be adjusted forward to back, and sideways. Despite what some reviews say, you cannot adjust the outlet up. It only slides up a fraction of an inch, because it's just a plastic spout ontop of the tube, it does rotate around, however.

I decided to upgrade to a power filter, and originally was going to keep this as a secondary filter, but eventually removed it, not due to any performance issues.

I don't know if this is how the Jardin brand is supposed to be, but I specifically ordered from this listing because it specified the Jardin brand, and not a Chinese knock-off. What I got was the filter on a card back in almost nothing but Chinese, and without the Jardin name anywhere. I don't know if this was something with the seller, or not.

I don't see any replacement sponges available for this one, but I would assume some brand out there would fit it. If you didn't mind the waste of the rest of the plastic, or had another use for it, it would be cheapest just to order another filter to get the sponges, at around $2 for this filter in some listings.

This would be a good filter for a hospital tank, or a large Betta tank, or a fry/shrimp tank.

Be aware, however, that some species of snail eat sponge. So if you have them they will eat this filter.

I love sponge filters. They're utterly simple and there's really nothing that can possibly go wrong on them.

It hardly makes any noise at all (just remember to extend the tube)! and it's perfect for betta tanks or for other fish that don't like strong currents from a filter. Hook it up to an air pump (not included!) and you're in business.

i use it in my 29 gallon as a secondary filter. Easy to use and good place to grow biological filter. Everyone should have it as a backup filter.

Wouldn't use it as a main filter for anything over a 10 gallon tank, besides as a back up filter. With that said great filter for 10 gallon tanks or less, just hook up to a air pump and your good to go. No need to buy new sponges just, slide them off and rinse them off in the tank water. You rinse in the tank water so you don't lose the good bacteria that has built up on the sponge.

Inexpensive for what it does. A good way to take care of the biological filtration in a tank, and it does the job of adding oxygen, too. Adjustable, pretty good quality, and not horrible-looking. I use it with a second type of filter, just to make sure everything is as clean as possible.

Most "experts" agree that sponge filters are a great filtration option for fry tanks. I use this (with a Whisper 20 air pump) for a 10 gallon fry tank that has 35 cichlids in it. I've not lost a single fish and they've grown from 1/8" to an inch in a month. I'll be transferring them to a larger tank with a hang-on-back filter, but for my tiny new babies, I will only use this sponge filter. Having two sponges is great for when you need to borrow some bacteria to start another tank. Granted, there is no mechanical filtration---it won't remove particles from the water; but that's not a problem with a bare-bottom tank. Just goes to show, sometimes low tech is the way to go.
