    they may be the "bare minimum" but as unleased said he will run into problems if he uses one....not only would it be bad in a FW tank but i would think that it would be twice as bad in a SW tank. They may have been the only things around for a while.....thats before technology was upgraded...now we have ALOT BETTER things....they may cost a few more dollars here and there.....but all around they arn't very good. I would use a standard filter. a HOB would work.

    dont really want to start a war but i would just spend a few bucks more for a HOB, if money is tight ebay has cheap aquaclears. by far the largest setback of a UGF is he wouldnt be able to have live sand or aragonite, just larger substrate like dolomite that wouldnt clog the UGF

    UGF are not very good, because no matter how much you vacuum, you will not get all the crud out of the gravel. This can cause nitrate problems, as well as others. With a strong HOB and proper water movement, there will be very little crud on the substrate, keep the tank cleaner and happier.
    CORRECTED video of my fish. This link works. For sure. Really.
