Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cheap, effective.
Cons: None, does the job it should.

 
Very cost effective. I stuff other filters with these as well. They can be easily cut and used for a variety of things. I use them to scrub tanks, as filter media in Hobs, and ive used them for small sponge filters as well. One of the cheaper foam inserts on the shelf, in spite of them being for one of the more expensive HOBs.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Affordable

Holds up well over time. Cleans up easy. Can cut a notch in it and put over the filter intake, to protect fry.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): It's a sponge
Cons: None

 
I use the stock sponges in some of the AC HOBs I run. I have had some running for years. Rinse when they get clogged up. No need to replace them. I have yet to have one fail on me. Really not much else to say. A great, easy, and cost-effective mechanical filtration media.

------------------------------
8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cheap, reuseble, easy to clean
Cons: None

 
These are a great foam insert. Easy to clean by sqeezing out in a bucket of tank water. Can last upto a year or more before needing t be replaced. They can also be cut if you need a smaller piece or to seed another filter with benefical bacteria.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Simple and effective
Cons: None

 
White seems to be the best color for this type of product. It allows you to easily see when the foam needs cleaning. This comes with the AC HOBs which is how I happen to be using it. At the same time I clean this foam, I dump out all the water from my HOB. There is always some waste sitting below the level of the foam and dumping eliminates it. I expect this foam to last for years.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): highly porous, last
Cons: none

 
I use the AC50 sponges to fill older cartridge type HOB's. I also use them to make pre filters for the intakes. They not only filter out large debris, but host a large supply of beneficial bacterias.
