I found this pad to fit okay in the top tray of my Fluval 206 filter. But it is certainly not the same pad that came originally with the filter.

The box did list the 206 on it even though the product description doesn't list the 206.

It does seem to work fine and do the job. I would just like to have one like originally came in the filter. I think that pad was MUCH better.

I bought these on the hope that they would fit the newer 206 canister filter. I actually received the newer box of these that states they ARE compatible with the 206, so I think the picture hasn't been updated in a while. I've attached a picture to help future buyers.

These water polishing pads don't accomplish anything that a $5 roll of quilt batting doesn't do (well...except that the Fluval are pre-cut to size), and you can make about 30-50 filters/pads this size out of one roll of batting. The nature of this type of filter is that it traps fine particles, so they get clogged very easily. If you want to keep crystal clear water you would go through 1-2 of these pads per week. One roll of quilt batting has lasted me several months. To make the filter keep the batting folded so that it is four layers thick and just cut to the size of your filter basket. You could use as many or as few layers as you wanted. I have seen that others use the stuffing from pillows but I don't recommend that, the individual fibers are more likely to come apart and could travel through the pump and end up in your tank. You don't want your fish to eat this stuff. I ordered these just to see if I was missing out on any great benefits and nope, I'm going back to incredibly cheap quilt batting.

I don't know if the interior of the 206 pump is slightly differently shaped or if this pad just fits slightly loose to begin with. It does work, but takes quite a while - enough water gets past the filter that small particles avoid the filter for hours, or days. Some of it may be due to a newer tank (old bio load though, so no bacterial bloom) and very fine sand still coming up into the water - but it is hard to come up with a reason that a product manufactured by the same company that made the pump fits with a full 1/4" gap around the edges. ???

Again, it works well - and I will probably keep one in continually because it does make a difference - but I don't get the undersized aspect. Perhaps it is to allow flow even if the media gets seriously clogged - but if you are going to be that inattentive, why buy a polishing pad?

Although amazon displays this item when selected, this is not the polishing pad for the 106. This product for any of the fluval filters that take this pad, works at removing fine particulate matter making for a crystal clear aquatic aquarium. I do endorse this product for it's use.

This is a waste of money, all you get is 3 pieces of filter floss cut up in the shape of the filter canister, you can do this yourself much cheaper.

It does what I bought it to do. Good product. The best part is you don't have to replace the filter that often.

The product itself is fine, but you can find off brand bulk supplies of this product here on Amazon for much cheaper and similar in quality.
