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.
The suction cup attachment can get a bit tricky. It's actually rather strong. I have my heater zip-tied to this filter, so the suction cup is good enough to keep down both the filter and that. When installing, suction right above where you want the filter, above the water line, and push down. It's a little effort, but it should work.
My only complaint is that the flow of water is actually a bit strong from the top. I have it pointed at a corner of my tank, to try and disperse things, and my fish on that side doesn't seem too stressed, but the water flow does move his water about a lot, so I often have to feed that one extra, seeing as his food gets lost. But at least now it's not the flow of water IN to worry about, so no stuck fish!
For a startup aquarium, this is a great choice.
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 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)
