It is truly amazing how well floss cleans my tank water!! I have a 300 Gallon tank with some pretty big monsters in it and this always does the trick when it comes to polishing the water crystal clear!! It is so much cheaper than buying the premade "Polishing cartage for 5x the price! and to the gentleman CuckD420 that was complaining about finding small strands of the floss in his tank and that his filter output is being reduced and the water comes out of the overflow, I am sorry to say that is human error my friend, with a little bit of ingenuity all your problems can be solved. for example if you keep seeing little strands of it buy your self a $2.00 empty filter media bag(Petco sells them in the same aisle as all the filter media) and put it in there, it will do the same thing trust me. If the water is coming out of your overflow when you use " a bigger chunk" just keep taking bits out until you have a happy medium of filter floss and no overflow water. The only kind of filter you can really jam this stuff in is a canister filter to have it act like a water polisher, yes the flow will slow down because of the increased resistance but if installed correctly you will have crystal clear water and no filter floss floating around in your tank. As I stated before if you are running a hang om back jut play around with the amount you can use so it wont cause your filter to use the overflow and bypass the filter and either buy a $2.00 empty filter media bag(Petco sells them in the same aisle as all the filter media) or place other heavier media such as carbon, Biological pellets, A sponge perhaps, and as long as all of t floss is either in the empty media bag or completely covered by heavier media you will have the same great effect with no floss a floating in your tank, I hope my advice helped!! This stuff truly is awesome!!!!
I would recommend this to a friend!

This product works ok, my main problem with it is that I keep finding polyester hairs all over the fish tank. Also if you use too big a piece, the filter won't flow as well, sending water out the overflow bypassing the filter.
