You need to siphon them regularly. So you can't really aquascaping a tank with a UG filter. But I used one in a FW
setup and it worked fine. So they're not as useless as people say they are. They are an affordable filtration method for something like a breeding tank or a budget tank. But I would.never use one in a display tank again.
