Mine was the 350 gallon.You can also save a lot of money by not having to buy the new slide in filters by doing this.When the filter pad needs cleaning and you need new charcoal.Take the existing filter clean the floss part. Then cut along the top edge of the floss where it attaches to the plastic that slides down inside the filter housing.Empty the old charcoal out and replace it with new activated carbon,then use a large rubber band to seal it back up.You can reuse the same filters quite awhile this way.I used the total four filters in mine,I would clean and change the carbon in alternating filters each month.
