    [FONT=&quot]Pros[/FONT]
    VERY powerful filtration and is very compact, making it good for small tanks. Easy to take apart and clean. Cotains a compartment for a "Rena crystal" or chemical filtration of your choice.
    [FONT=&quot]Cons[/FONT]
    I have found that the suckers that hold it to the glass aren't very good. Clogs easily if there is a lot of suspended particles. Cannot be kept to close to the surface or it fills up with air and the tank becomes a mass of bubbles.
    [FONT=&quot]Star rating (1-5 with 5 being the best)[/FONT]

    This filter comes with many small aquariums that have rena products included.
    I have used the propeller when i made my own external filter and as a co2 diffuser and it is fine through whattever it is put through. Very good filter for smaler tanks; I would deffinately recommend it, although one may need to find ther own suckers as the ones included arent great.

    Thanks for reading! :)

    How silently does the filter run? Do you have to put your ear up to it to hear it through the glass? Or can you hear it from a distance?
