This has a weighted base and has so far stayed down completely. The airhose was easy to attach to the top.
We noticed a difference in the water quality right away. We got some nice new plants to cover the filter and you would never even know it was there.
I will report back in a month or two if there are any problems. But this has been working very well so far.
The way the tube is at the top, a massive amount of bubbles enter the water. This would be fine if you don't have a planted tank. I have a CO2 system, so I needed to adjust the air return to keep the water surface more still (to keep CO2 in the water). I just added another length of tubing that put the end of the tube closer to the surface, and now the surface is much less, um, bubbly :)
I found out about these thing via youtube and wanted to try it out. I love how its cheap, durable, and good for my goldfish tank. I'm hoping this will help save money since I've been spending 100s on just 2 goldfish alone. If anything, its unable to clean up the floating poop, but I can easily scoop that out with a net. Plus, a whole lot of it gets sucked out during water changes. I like the size and cheap pricing. I'm definitely getting more of these in the mear future
Due to the extra surface area, it continues to flow well even after 4 weeks of straight use. And this cleans the water so well that i rarely have to clean the filters in my aquaclear. It also prevents any pieces from causing impeller damage. This keeps it running quiet also. With other smaller pre filters i would get clogged in three days. Ive used this for 6 months and working well.
Although the filter tube on the aquaclear 70 is too big to fit in this. So i took the plastic tube out of this filter and stuffed it with extra sponge material to create a seal.
