I bought this product after struggling to keep my oscar alive in a 29 gallon (not a good idea!!) So i finally got around to getting a 55 gallon for my oscar and stubbled upon this filter.
Excellent product!! Works tremendolsly(spell?)! I went from doing a 50% water change once a week and a 100% change once a month to NOTHING!
My water is clear no ammonia no nitrites (alittle nitrates, but my oscar seems fine =])
I have not had to fight the, what seemed to be the never ending, hole in the head or any other disease for that matter.
I love this product!
Pros: quiet, clean, works amazing
Cons: setup slightly irritating

there is alot of parts, but anyone who takes the time to assemble it(1-2 hrs) will be impressed with this filter... very quiet, NO MICRO-BUBBLES like you get with lesser quality filters...i've had them! (marineland, fluval, aquarium sys.)... high quality filter! great price! don't waste your time on others like i've done for 15 years... THIS IS THE BEST!

This filter offers an unmatched level of biological filtration and several advantages over traditional wet/dry trickle filters. The sintered glass pellets provide more surface area for good bacteria than the plastic balls used in trickle filters. This filter runs silent compared to trickle filters that sounds like a toilet running nonstop. This filter does not need an external siphon box that hangs off the back of your tank (as used in trickle filters) -- so there is no ugly box ruining your tank's beauty and you dont have to worry about power outages with water siphoning the wrong way (perhaps onto your floor). Another advantage of not having the siphon box is that water is pulled from the bottom of the tank and ejected into the top of the tank causing good water circulation -- the traditional trickle filters pull water from the top and eject it to the top so you just keep circulation the same water. Oh, and it is also true that the fish like to play in the oscillating water current that this filter produces. Finally, this unit is much more compact than the traditional trickle filters.

I'we got two of these babyes running in my 100G tank, they wrock like an charm if you take these precautions; Prefiltering is of utmoust importance they should be conneted to an desant mecanikal filtration device. This will save lotts of filter media such as efimech. I have conneted bouth my filters to my sump after spending alot of time tikering and cleaning the filter media.
the only thing wich I think shuld be better is the foltation device I should be coated with an thin layer of silicone so that it keeps functioning for more than 2 years.

This looked like a great filter so I ordered one but when I got it, I had to assemble it. There were like a million parts and the directions told me to do things that didnt work. I remember trying to insert the one thing into another thing and there was just no way it was going to fit. WAY WAY to complicated assembly.
Also, one of the tubes was really bent up from the packaging. HEY! for that price, there better not be any kinks in my tubing. but there was. I never even got this thing together. I bet it would have worked great if I did...but thats only IF.
