My brother has this unit on a marine tank. IMO, it is not a good design for a plant tank using CO2. The unit blasts out a hard jet of water sporatically. This blast includes a lot of bubbles. It does not work like a canister filter, which runs smoothly and continually. So I can't seem to describe the workings more accurately.
He is VERY pleased with the unit and has never had any type of mechanical failures as mentioned in one of the above posts. He feels that one unit working alone is plent for his 60-gallon marine tank.
The filter is interesting to watch in action but, IMO, would be terrible in a plant tank.
I try to keep the tank plain and simple but it never stays that way!
