Does not affect flow rate what so ever!

I like using these little sponges on filter intakes to prevent baby shrimp and fish from getting sucked in.

The sponge fits just fine over a standard size filter intake.

I use this to cover the intake of my AquaClear 30. Does everything it's supposed to - no surprises and no disappointments. It's nice that the hole doesn't go all the way through the sponge. Now my frogs can hang out on top of it all they want without any danger of getting their feet sucked up. :)

This 3-pack in conjunction with Amazon Prime makes this the best deal for this sponge on the market.

This is fine. It's a cylindrical sponge with a hole on one side, but it isn't a Fluval. The most important difference is that the Fluvals have a hole large enough to fit on almost any HOB filter intake. This sponge's hole is about half the diameter. You have to either take out the intake tube and use two hands to really push it in, or you'll have to do what I did: take a hobby knife and cut lengthwise inside the hole in order to enlarge the opening.

It's still good for the price, but this is not a Fluval in name or design (it doesn't even come in Fluval packaging), and you'll have to do some work to get it to perform its function properly.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of five was the fact that it is realy realy small. I expected it to be bigger, well much bigger (taller and a bit wider). I bought it because my neighbor gave me a prefilter sponge that is two and a half times the height and a bit wider and fits well on even my small HOB filters with 1 inch lift tubes. I thought it would be the same size but it was tiny. Luckily I found that it fits well on my smaller HOB filters with 1 inch or less lift tubes - so i decided to upgrade all my smaller HOB filters and buy the three pack (I accidentally bought the 1 pack for $3.49!). It is a good deal for three of these knowing one of them on amazon sells for 3.49-as the three pack is only 3.99 (50 cents for two extra!). Great product for upgrading your smaller HOB filters! Just make sure you rinse them out when you do water changes as they have a tendancy to get gunked up and impede the flow of your fitler.

I use the Fluval Edge prefilters on the intake tubes of 3 Aquaclear 20 filters in 5.5 gallon aquariums, which I use as part of a sectional aquarium setup for raising fancy guppies.

I also have a 10 gallon tank as part of my guppy sectional setup, with an Eheim 2213 canister filter, which I have also added one of these prefilters to.

The Eheim's intake strainer is small enough to slip the Fluval prefilter on, and the Aquaclear 20 is the same filter used by Fluval with its Edge 6 and 12 gallon tanks, so the fit is perfect.

I use these prefilters for two reasons. The first is to prevent guppy fry from being sucked up into the main filters.

The second is to prevent much of the detritus in my tanks from reaching the Aquaclear 20's mechanical filter sponge.

I have noticed that the mechanical filters in the Aquaclears stay much cleaner since I've added the Fluval prefilters.

I remove the prefilters once a week or so, rinse them well under tap water since they absorb alot of detritus, and place them back on the filter intake tubes.

And since the main filter already has a biofilter, I don't have to worry about rinsing the prefilter in tank water or filtered water. The chlorinated tap water works fine.

These filters really have made it easier to keep my Eheim and Aquaclear filters cleaner, and they are well worth the money. Especially when purchasing them in a three pack.

Highly recommended!

Even though these are manufactured by Fluval, they work on filters that are not made by Fluval. I have used one of these as a pre-filter on an Aqueon QuietFlow 10, and I now use one on a Cascade 150 in a tank with some fish and one shrimp.

The tank where I have this installed is a planted tank, and often a piece of Java Fern or moss will decide to float around the tank. This filter helps keep the plant matter from being sucked into the filter intake, and it also protects my shrimp from being harmed by the filter. She likes to hang on the intake and eat the particles of food that get trapped in the sponge. It allows just enough flow to interest the shrimp while reducing the flow somewhat to the benefit of my Gouramis.

Because of this pre-filter, I only have to change the filter cartridge about once a month. The $3.99 I spent on three of these filters paid for itself within the first month of use. This does not even take into account the boost to biological filtration this sponge filter provides in my tank. This might be the best $3.99 I have ever spent.

Note: These pre-filter sponges will work for brands that are not Fluval, but only smaller models designed for 5 to 10-gallon tanks. The intakes on larger filters are too large for these sponges to fit. Furthermore, they will not fit the Marineland filters at all; the intakes on Marineland filters are too large.

I use these on my Aquaclear filters intakes, keeps fry, plant matter and shrimplets from getting sucked up, also lets your filter media run longer with out getting gunked up. Instead of cleaning out my filters every couple weeks I clean these sponges 1-2 times a week and let my filters run a couple months before they need to be rinsed.
