Aqueon QuietFlow Power Filters feature four stages of filtration – mechanical, chemical, biological and wet/dry – for the cleanest, clearest, healthiest water. Higher flow rates ensure higher dissolved oxygen content for healthier, more active fish. The internal pump design helps dampen noise, eliminates leaks and starts up automatically after cleaning or power interruptions.
- Auto-start, self-priming filter
- Lifetime Warranty
- No wheel to stop turning
- Bio-Pin Wet Dry Technology
Higher Flow Rates
Aqueon filters have higher flow rates than the competition to ensure proper turnover for cleaner water and higher dissolved oxygen content, making fish healthier and more active.
Superior Biological Filtration
The patented biological grid has a large surface area to support more of the beneficial bacteria that eliminates ammonia and nitrates. A second wet/dry grid provides further biological filtration and oxygenation as the water returns to the aquarium.
Internal Pump Design
Since the filter pump is submersed in the aquarium, there is no need for priming at setup or when restarting the filter after cleaning or power interruptions. An internal pump also allows for virtually silent operation, continuous flow raters, less chance for leaks, and a much thinner profile.
Four Stage Advanced Filtration System
Stage 1: Dense floss removes particles and debris.
Stage 2: Activated carbon removes toxins, odors and discoloration.
Stage 3: Patented Bio-Holster removes toxic ammonia and nitrites.
Stage 4: Diffuser grid removes additional toxins while adding oxygen for more active fish. It also reduces splashing makes the return exceptionally quiet.

The real takeaway is that the local big box pet store charges FIVE TIMES AS MUCH for this same box of filters as Amazon. Nuts to that. Buy your filters here.
Just for referance the bag was open but most likely a shipping issue as it was packaged with a gallon of water conditioner and it looks like the air that was in the bag of filters popped open from be slammed with a gallon of liquid. They look fine though and I put them in a sealed sandwich bag for when ready to be used - no stars removed for shipping issue.

So, although this filter fits like it should, it leaves a lot of unused room within the filter itself that could be modified to host more filtration. Adding a sponge or bio-rings in a mesh/nylon bag to the back allows for advanced filtration and for a large colony of beneficial bacteria. If you are interested in optimizing your filter a little more, I recommend researching youtube videos and aquarium forums. It is very easy and allows you to get a little more oomph out of your filter.
The filter cartridges, however, are terribly expensive. The only "LFS" (if you can even call it that) in my area is a PetSmart, and while I try to avoid that store, I have two cats, so I'm there more than I'd like to be. Eventually I wander to the fish section, and I surrender my wallet and its contents to the cashier. This same 12-Pack of cartridges at the store is around $42. I get the same exact thing on Amazon for a little over $20, with tax added. I rarely spend less than $35 on this crazy site, so I usually get free shipping, so that's another expense I am not accounting for.
I get six more filters online for the same price it costs me to get a 6-pack at the store. Crazy!
I think they work very well for the price, and for being just a standard filter cartridge. They're nothing fancy, but I'm satisfied with how they work. I would, and have, recommended this product to friends.
Now, to review the filter itself, it is just ok, it doesn't have what I would consider a decent amount of activated carbon in it, but you can always slice open the fiber and add more. I actually found this helpful recently when I had to medicate my tank and remove the charcoal.
