Positive aspects of the product (pros): Dual sponges, mounts to side of the tank
Cons: The elbow in the bubble tube is loud

 
I have one of these running in my 55 gallon so itís ready when I need it in my quarantine tank. This sponge filter has two large sponges which is good for routine maintenance. There is a two pc adjustable bubble tube that allows you to adjust the height so you can place the bubble near the top of the tank. I didnít like the elbow at the top of the bubble tube. I created a lot of noise. I just removed mine. Still works fine and no more excessive noise.

------------------------------
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to use, sponge is easy to clean, inexpensive
Cons: The sponge can log a bit too quick sometimes but clean it regularly and it's great.

 
The two sponges are nice because you an clean one at a time. I have about 20 of these.
