It's an AC 20.

I'm not sure on the snail, but there are a few different kind, I hope the population does not explode.

I have a finnex 4 gallon that I am looking for a HOB filter for. Do you think the AC 20 might be too much flow?

If you have the soil packed down a bit, and turn the flow all the way down it just creates a bit of surface movement. I have this same filter on a Mini S at work and it's not too over powering.

btmarquis, the AC20 is not too strong because you can control the output on the unit. I am personally very happy with the unit.

Man some craziness, I been missing a lot of shrimps lately. Turns out they got sucked in to the AC20, but all lived minus1!!!!

How they got past the impeller is a mystery to me, so now i put a sponge filter there over the intake..
