Pros: Easy to use, affordable, reliable
Cons: The biowheel makes a water trickling noise

I use this filter on a 20 gallon long aquarium, and found that it does a great job of keeping the water clear. My only complaint is that some people find the noise of water trickling from the biowheel to be annoying. I find it to be soothing, but the the noise can be easily regulated by raising the water level in the tank.

Pros: simple design, low maintenance, biowheel
Cons: vertical filter pad

I've read good and bad things about biowheel filters and AquaClear filters but I like the biowheels eventhough they both seem equally matched. The wet/dry biowheel idea is apparently more efficient for biological filtration but the vertical filter pad supposedly doesnt work as well as the stacked media in AquaClears. I like this filter because it's very easy to work with and keeps my water clean.

P.S. it was $35 because i live in hawaii
