    I have one of each size of stingray filter, and they all have shown excellent performance to-date.

    They are quiet, easy to clean, reliable, and they look good too.

    There is an issue with the cost of zeolite replacements. My advice is to take them out from day one and discard them. The zeolite does effectively remove ammonia from your tank, but that is what the bacteria are meant to do in your filter. The idea of 'cycling' a tank, is to cultivate a nice balance of good bacteria in your filter and gravel. If you remove the ammonia chemically with the zeolite, you starve off the bacteria, and so your tank can not be maintained unless you endlessly replace your zeolite every 4 weeks. If you're new to fish keeping, I suggest you read up on 'cycling an aquarium' before you start buying the fish.

    So, remove the zeolite cartridges and stuff the space with filter wool or other fish-friendly filter material.

    Second issue is injury to fish - not from being sucked up the filter - this is NOT an issue with adult fish and has never once happened. But when you suction cup the filter to the glass, a very small 0.5cm gap remains between glass and filter. So what, you might think? What could fit down there? A guppy will, and a tetra, and even a danio. I know from experience! Fish will find any crevice in your tank to explore/jump into, and if you don't spot them in time, they're dead.

    Solution? A non-toxic sheet of tank friendly silicon did the trick for me, tucked between the filter and the glass, or you can stuff filter wool behind the filter. Anything to stop little fishies going in there.

    Pros - Filters quick, quietly, lots of water agitation for great oxygen exchange. No noise, simple to clean. Lasts a long time, even in hard water.

    My old filter didn't do a great job of cleaning Malawi Cichlid waste, but when i changed over to the stingray, my water went from slitly murky and full of poo to crystal clear and most of the waste gone!
    What a filter.

    Style Name: Stingray 10
    This filter is great for my 50L tank. I had been using an Interpet PF1 but the noisy buzzing it made was rattling the aquarium lid and annoying the wife. After reading Amazon reviews on a number of different filters I opted to buy this Elite Stingray 10.
    And I was not disappointed. It is quiet, even straight out of the box. Not silent, but certainly not noticeable.
    And if you have any other noise in the room, eg a TV on, then this is effectively silent in comparison.
    Although others mention the old "coat the impeller with Vaseline" trick, I quite like being able to detect that the filter is working when I walk past. Perhaps when there is some growth on the impeller it will become naturally silent?
    The only downside seems to be the use of two small zeolite/carbon filter cartridges, one of which should be changed every month according to the instructions. This is probably because they are quite small.
    In summary, a very quiet and efficient filter.

    Style Name: Stingray 10
    I'm cursed: Every filter i've ever had has always had a rattling impeller- these being an interpet PF mini (the worst filter in the world- suction cups that kept coming loose, how fiddly it was and and how ineffective it was) them I moved onto a TetraTec Easycrystal 250 (how extremely ineffective it was as i even saw fish waste coming back into the tank, how you couldnt access the impeller and also how loud it was). The Easycrystal eventually broke altogether and so my search for an effective and quiet filter began again. I heard that the Fluval U1 was very good but there were some extremely criticising reviews of it as well. I had been eyeing the stingray since i ditched the PF mini and so decided to buy it. The reason I needed a quiet filter is because my tank is right next to my bed (and i can't move it anywhere else).

    The stingray came in a compact box and was smaller than I had expected. I was a bit worried when steam came out of the filter when I submerged the filter in the water, but apparently thats just the zeolite reacting with the water. I turned the filter on and the sudden strong current blew my curious fish across to the other side of the tank. I then aimed the head at the side of the tank which rectified my problem. The filter was quiet apart from a small rattling noise.

    After a couple of hours the stingray had cleaned up the mucky water the EasyCrystal had left behind leaving it crystal clear. I was impressed until:

    Two days later the rattling noise was louder and the sound continued to grow until it started to irritate and frustrate me, this must have been a faulty unit which was surprising as there was an orange QC passed sticker on the box.

    We have the elite stingray 10, it is the only filter we have ever had for our tank, and have had it about 4 years. It is working as well now as the first day we bought it. The carbon baskets, I was advised to change every 6 weeks, but I confess I do not change them that often. The sponges we clean in aquarium water, as is normal, but only change those if they become split or raggy.
    But you need to remove the bottom of the motor/pump where the impeller is and clean that regularly, get all the sludge and muck out. We also have hard water here, so that needs knocking off as well. I had not done it for a while, an oversight on my part, and the filter was not working so well, but now I have dealt with that, it is back to perfect again.
    I would totally recommend this product, it works well for us and we have no complaints with it.
    It does come with instructions of how to take it apart and what needs cleaning.
