The kit was easy to set up and worked very well
on May 24, 2015
I purchased this kit in November 2014. The reviews here on Amazon were mixed, but I decided to go for it. The kit was easy to set up and worked very well..for a while. The biowheel really never worked right, it stopped spinning almost a month after buying it. I didn't mind it too much because everything else appeared to work well. I changed out the filter cartridge a few times and it seemed to do a good job filtering the water. Last night I took the whole filter out to clean it and when I put it back together, it didn't work. I could still hear the motor running but the filter wasn't cycling any water. I did everything I could to try to fix it but eventually gave up. I had to go to the local pet store this morning to get a new filter for my fish. And then tonight I fed my fish and went to turn on the blue LED night time lights and "surprise" that stopped working as well, along with the regular LED lights. So, if you want your aquarium equipment to last about 6 months, this is the kit for you. For the price I'm not sure this is worth it. Tomorrow morning I'm off to the local pet store again to buy replacement equipment. Boo.
