I love mine because it keeps my water crystal clear all the time. I initially bought it to remove ich--that doesn't work by the way!

I also like mine. Kills algae spores, ich, and anything else that goes through it. Adding to Nate's post.... It does kill ich but there is no way to guarantee all the ich infested tank water will go through it.

Not to high jack - but I have heard many say the Turbo twist is a good one? Whats a good price for one of these? I think I have seen the middle sized one for like $80 - is this right?
