Heads up- Azoo Palm filter for $3.50 each!

Thought you all may be interested, since this is the tiny tank area-



Here's the link (if the forum doesn't nuke it)
https://www.liveaquaria.com/product/4544/?pcatid=4544

Free shipping on orders over $19, I just ordered six to use on future projects and to give a couple away. ~$21 shipped plus tax

Good for us 2.5 gallon users for sure, especially with some creative filter media modification.

Same thing as a Mignon 60 right? Man, I bought six when they were $10 bucks each. I've been running one on a 2 gallon for years and love it. Saw they were on clearance last year and bugged out and bought the six figuring they were about to be discontinued. Shoulda held out.... haha

@redneck joe that company was bought by Petco last year (or two?) so they run it now. It's reputable for sure

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Same as the 60

I like them, handy little filters, especially at this price.

First time I've bought from liveaquaria in years. If I'm not mistaken my last order from them was nearly ten years ago for coral back when they were in the Dr's Foster & Smith paper catalog! Petco recently bought them and must be liquidating stock from older product lines, or from distributors that aren't on their usual lists.

Cool! They are neat little things. Common mod is to cut up sponges from aquaclears to use instead of filter media that is provided.

Also, another deal alert-

Some people like these too, stuff them in a corner to remove surface scum/oils

Pretty sure they're liquidating stock from Foster&Smith which they killed :/

That's a good little filter. Used it often. Anyone looking to get into co2 the Azoo regulator with solenoid on sale for $40 is a good starting regulator. I've had one that is still working after 8 years.

For anyone who has never used one of these before, they're a lot stronger than their rating. I added a prefilter sponge and replaced the included media with Matrix to a pair I use on a couple of 12" cubes and they've been perfect.

Thanks for the heads up!

Wow, so that's what they did with all the stock from DrFosterSmith that isn't normally carried by Petco or LiveAquaria.

Sure looks like it. Purging all the non-regular stock to streamline distribution and have less vendors it seems.

They actually had the Azoo Palm on DrFosterSmith during the closing sales, and I ordered a bunch of them only to have them cancel my order and refund. Now it's half the price of the closing sale lol. Hopefully the same thing doesn't happen...
