Spoke with Steve directly in order to ensure this was what I needed to accomplish my needs. He was very prompt and very professional, very fast shipping and clear directions. Will look forward to doing business with them in the future.
I've had it in my tank for almost 2 weeks now, and I've noticed no change in my nitrates. I doubt this product worked the way it was intended.
I have been cycling for months, I put this sponge filter in my tank(my nitrites&nitrates was already there) in 4 days my cycle completed I even dosed to 4ppm with Ammonia and my ammonia and nitrite was at 0 within 24 hours! I did this 2 days straight and each time was 0! I’ll be buying more in the future!!
As I reviewed yesterday, these are superb! I have 2 large ones in my 40 Gallon breeder tank, but wanted to know how long to leave them in. They are so big, which really helped cycle so fast, but they take up so much space. Should I trim them down to a smaller size to make more space, leave just 1 large on in and remove the other to a different tank? Awesome product and totally satisfied with the results! :)
I learned about this product from my local aquarium group. I am skeptical to the max about any quick fix claim, but I have been cycling my 10 gallon for 4 weeks, with fish and the parameters are slowly coming down. Mainly having a problem with Nitrites. It is planted. I ordered 2 of the large, black filters for my 40 gallon breeder, and in 24 hours, my readings are: Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, Nitrates 1.0. I have been running a HOB filter for about a week with matrix and it does have some plants in it too. No fish, but after seeing these reading, that is going to change...will be adding them today after some aquascaping. I have to admit this product does as claimed, which is not common most of the time. I highly recommend these active filters. 1 day vs 4+ week is a no brainer! Thanks Angels Plus!
