The world's best selling filter for a reason!

posted 6 years ago

I have used this filter on my 75 gallon goldfish/catfish/snail tank for about 4 years. It has never let me down. The replacement media is easy to find in stores.

It has however, killed some of my large apple snails. I've lost a few who got their "foot" stuck in the filter.

I also hate that when the electricity goes out, the filter doesn't start working right away. You need to fill it back up manually with water.

BUT...it's still my favorite filter by far. I have used many other kinds in addition to this one on my 75 gallon, but none work as well as the Aquaclear.

Pros: great filter

Cons: it has killed some of my snails :(

A great long working filter

posted 6 years ago

I've been keeping fish all of my life,and Aquaclear filters were always my first choice.They're dependable,long lasting and maintain your tank great.The filtration strength on the bigger filters are awesome if you keep the bigger tanks and fish.
Two downfalls of Aquaclear would be 1) They will back up and drip if you don't clean the filters on occasion.
This is preventable 100% if you maintain the filter like you should.
The second con is that recently Hagen,Aquaclear(who has always gave you a great filter for a decent price)
raised all the prices of their filters big time.
That was a problem for me as cost is real important.
My advice is that if money isn't a problem,then go for it as they last for years.

Pros: Cleans the tank fantastic!

Cons: Prices of the filters raised up drastically.

Wonderful Filter system!

posted 6 years ago

This filter has changed the way our tanks look and made my life easy because I don't need to clean the tank as much. There are different filter media options you can choose from to meet the needs of your tank. When you clean the tank and filter you don't replace all of the media so the good bacteria stays and helps the natural balance of the tank. One of my tanks is going on 3 years with the same fish which is great for my fish history. This filter is a must have.

Pros: Quality product, filters are priced well, SUPER clean water!

Cons: A bit bulky and can make some noise if ocver is not on just right

Pretty Good Filter

posted 6 years ago

I used this filter for my fish tank and i liked it, however i didn't think it was the best out there. It was reasonably priced and it works well. The one thing i wasn't wild about was there is no lip where the water flows back into the tank, therefore it doesn't have good direction. The filter works well and it keeps the tank very clean.

Pros: Keeps Tank Clean

Cons: not the best out there

Excellent filtration

posted 6 years ago

I like these systems, which we use in our large reef tank. Having the filter components sold individually allows us to change the sponge, carbon and additional ammonia neutralizer pieces as needed.

Pros: keeps tank clean

Cons: none
