This is extremely helpful when your expecting any baby fish (or just maybe small fish). It is awesome for ten gallon breeding tanks. Since waist can't get sucked up the filter it clings to the foam. You will have to rinse it out here and there. Other than that it is a lot more useful for baby fish than using an air pump :)

This filter sponge works great for smaller fish and filters, but I had it on my AquaClear 70 and had some trouble putting it on, and did not clean it enough for my large Goldfish and it clogged the tube to the point where some water flow was very restricted. I would recommend it for smaller filters and tropicals. Goldfish are too messy, and it must be cleaned often.

Probably the best thing i could have purchased for my shrimp tank. Keeps them from getting sucked up through the intake tube of the HOB filter. My cherry red shrimp are always combing it for food. I have had it for 7 months now and all i do is rinse it out under the tap, seems to be holding up just fine.

These work on most intake valves for a majority of power filters. The largest I have tried it on is an aquaclear 70, but it's stretchy enough that it should work on something up to the 110 and also works on a few of my other brand fixtures. They don't stand out as bad as some of the sponges I have used in the past. You do need to rinse it out from time to time but I have had mine for months now and will probably not ever replace it unless it's falling apart. Weak or young fish won't get stuck and it's a good little pre-filter so your filter media doesn't get too bogged down with bigger debris.

I bought this mainly b/c I wanted to protect the safety of my small fish. It's suppose to also help with small debris. It doesn't tell me how often I should change it, or if I need to change it at all.
Pros: saves small fish, helps with debris
Cons: no directions on changing

I currently have a shrimp tank this saves the baby shrimp from getting suck in from the filter intake without restricting the water flow.
