Extremely poor pump.. It pumps out a good pressure of air but it is L-O-U-D! Not to mention if you turn it on and off too many times it'll die on your for a unspecified amount of time. However, again the biggest thing for me was just how loud it is and how much it vibrates. Just pass on it and do your research and get a different one. It is quite powerful and certainly does it job but the quality is sooooo low and again again its like having a vacuum cleaner on.
I have a 29g tank.
Pros: easy to install, powerful, lots of bubbles
Cons: loud, Vibrates

I bought this pump with the idea that it would be useful in case of a power outage or during moving. To test it I attached it to the bubble wall in my 20 gallon and let it run for a few days. After coming home from work on the third day, it had died and was no longer running.
There didn't seem to be anything faulty inside at the time, I changed the battery, and it still didn't work. Needless to say I returned it and bought a real pump with a plug.
It was also extremely loud and vibrated a lot. I'm not sure if that was due to something in the motor being faulty or if they're all like that, though. I wasn't willing to give another one a try.
Also, these run on D size batteries. Good luck trying to find a small pack of those these days.
Cons: loud, Vibrates
