    Tidal 55 VS Fluval C and Aquaclear Tank size: 36 x18 x18 Fluval C serice vs Tidal I chosed waterfalls as a auxiliary filter. The main purpose was: A) I like to listen to the sound of water flowing, but I don’t like rain forest pipe outlet (very easy to plug with bio film. So...

    So right now, I have the Aqueon Quiet Flow 10 that came with my 10 gal and it has a strong flow, even after I added some filter sponges to it and a small sponge around the intake. It didn’t change anything. The flow spreads the sand substrate around to make a crater in the middle and it’s...

    I'm wondering which works better for a 29 gallon.. I would assume the Aquaclear would do better considering it can work with a tank up to 50 gallons but the Fluval 30 C2 has 5 filtering stages as opposed to the Aquaclear that only has 3. Anyone who's had experience with these filters help...

    My old AquaClear 50 was noisy and based on something I saw online thought it might have been damaged from my switching to a sand substrate. I've bought a new one but need something to keep the sand from getting into the propeller. I bought a polishing pad for a canister filter but it prevents...

    Hi, I'm currently setting up a new 20L low tech planted tank. I have an Aquaclear 20 but it didn't seem strong enough for the longer footprint of the tank so I got a second one of the same. Not sure of best placement: one on each side or one on the side and one in the middle to carry on the...

    As some of you know, I've been experimenting with DIY CO2 in a 20H these last few months. For diffusion Ive had the raw CO2 line running into the intake of an Aquaclear HOB. The prop chops up the bubbles, which then have to flow up through the media before reaching the outflow. Due to the...

    I currently have a 25 gallon tank with an aqueon quietflow 30 HOB filter on it... My bolivian rams keep breeding every month along with my endler livebearers, so I am trying to set up a grow out tank in a 10 gallon tank I have. I recently purchased an AquaClear 70 to replace my aqueon filter on...

    Hi I need to get a filter for a 29 gallon planted tank that I am setting up but I don't know what size is the best. I think that a ac50 will be the best because I am trying to spend under 50 and get the best filtration possible. Any help would be great! Thanks

    Hey there, I just got a Hydor mini 15W in the mail to use in my 10G tank. The tank is running a small Aquaclear HOB filter and I was wondering if this was safe to try before I plug it in. If you bend the filter (it is pliable and thin plastic) it slides into the media compartment of the filter...

    Noise/Rattle Fix! - AquaClear & Fluval C Series HOB Filters I recently purchased an AquaClear 30 and the new Fluval C2 filters. The Fluval C Series filters are revised/updated AquaClears. Both filters made an annoying vibration/rattling noise. Of course having the lids on amplified the racket...

    I'm not sure if this is an already well known fact in the community, but I just wanted to give everyone a word of caution regarding the use of Aquaclear powerheads with shrimp. I have a sponge filter in my 10G shrimp-only tank and didn't want to run it with an air pump (bubbles + CO2 outgassing...
