I got it today, but sadly, I'm going to return it because it's rather big and won't let the tank lid close all the way. (I use a foldable glass lid.) The upper "intake" is useless because it really doesn't do anything; it's simply a piece of useless plastic that can be taken off. I like the filter media because its easy maintenance. Also, the adjustable flow is EXCELLENT. I knocked the flow to the lowest setting, and the "waterfall" died down significantly without any problems. My boy was able to swim underneath the outflow pretty well, but I'm guessing it really depends on the fish. I wish I could keep it. I'll most likely purchase it again should I decide to invest in a 10g tank. For 5g, it will work, but it may be too big for the lid. :/ I may keep the bio-chem stars if they will fit in my current filter, which silly enough doesn't have a sponge.
