Well it has been over a year now and my Poret Filter experiment has been a total success.

I have not needed to pull it and clean it. Occasionally I do clean the the tank side of the filter during water changes.

It did take a while to get used to losing approx 4 inches off the length of the 55 gal and seeing a black foam wall.

I am running it with an approx 500 gal hr pump..flawless and quiet....I padded the pump with extra pieces of foam (it would occasionally hit the side to the tank)

So far...flawless....basically maintenance free...quiet....keeps the parameters perfect....what a filter!!!....one time cost of approx $100 for the Foam, pump and hose and DYI water diffuser.

It will do everything they claim....and take the work out of filter maintenance. The only time I can see needing a regular filter is if you wanted to use charcoal.
