The filter's easy to operate anti-airlock system allows for self-priming, uninterrupted operation and prevents filter shutdown.

Pros: Easy to use, setup, and low cost

An excellent filter. It\'s easy to prime, has good media capacity, AP media is readily available and inexpensive. Excellent instructions, and multiple configurations are included. Only drawback, as far as I\'m concerned, is the blue intake tube. I\'ll buy another if need be.


I try and look on bright side... At least my algae is pearling nicely!
