Good product By jhmeresqu on 8/26/2016jhmeresqu would recommend this product to a friendWorks well, fits like a glove, and doesn't get clogged easily.
Perfect, except... By Lisa on 1/9/2016Lisa would recommend this product to a friendPerfect. Solved the longtime issue with my Nuvo 38 of losing true nano fish to the back chamber of death. Countless fish, pipefish and small inverts were loss due to these not being included originally. So perfect because the tank was virtually useless without this fix as a true nano fish tank.
Yes, these will need to be cleaned regularly to prevent coralline from clogging them if you have a thriving tank and cleaned more than that if you have a tank full of nuisance GHA or cyano. They will restrict flow a little, but not enough to cause an issue unless your tank is growing algae rather than corals.
My only complaint which I'll take one star off for is that these should just be included in every IM tank under 40 gallons. Those sizes are nano tanks and true nano fish will slide right thru the stock slots. And if I am going to have to purchase them, then $20 is too much. I feel burned for having to buy something overpriced that should have been included.
