    Hey everybody. I recently received a 10 gallon that I got for free. It came with a filter but im not really sure what kind it is. It doesn't have a name on the filter anywhere. Can you help me identify it? Thanks!

    Ok so I cleaned the tank and the filter. I water tested the tank. It had no leaks when they stopped using it but it was outside for a couple weeks. The filter works great. Doesn't seem like a bad little filter. There seems to be quite a bit of room for media in it. It kinda mimics an aqua clear. Can I setup media in it like an aqua clear?

    Sounds great, I'd setup with a couple of pieces media so you can clean one and leave the BB in thé other, your on your way Good Luck!
