hydor 150

The Hydor 150 is the bottom line of their filters. You should read the directions carefully. For the 150 ONLY the water flows to the bottom of the filter container and then up through the media. The larger Hydor filters work in the opposite direction. Therefore, the material provided must be loaded in reverse order from what normal logic dictates. Loading from the top down, the sponge, filter material, carbon, and bio-material. Note that no activated carbon is provided for this unit and it is a smaller powered filter with two trays. It is quiet and it does work fine. The quick disconnects are nice. The intake and out-take u-tubes are a little weak (thin plastic) and the out-take tube does not have an extension to ensure that the outlet is below the water line on larger aquariums. Perhaps an extension can be purchased. I use it to run some carbon in a 100 gallon saltwater tank to remove toxins from stony corals and some nutrients. I would say this unit is fine for a 30 gallon aquarium but I would go up in filter sizes for 55 gallon and larger aquariums unless you just want to run some carbon occasionally which is what I am doing.

low quality

Very low quality material used to make this product. Very thin walls on all material, baskets very light weight, clip for motor head thin and weak, power cord very thin gauge and short. It does run good but expect a short life with this product. 20 years experience.

Huge Upgrade

After fighting with an over the edge in-tank filter this has been a huge upgrade. The water is significantly clearer and the unit is very easy to install, prime and operate.
