Solid product but has limits

Comments: This is ideal for a small turtle tank or other freshwater application. I dont think it would be very good for saltwater applications due to waterfall water return = salt creep and pass through vs force through filtration. They could do more to quiet the lid, which rattles a bit when the pump is running.

Comments: This replaced a single stage carbon filter that was large and bulky and loud. This on is small and compact, super quiet and the 3 stage filter basket does an amazing job of cleaning up my tank. I have a 29 gallon, that's more like 24 gallons after live rock displacement. It did a super job of cleaning up an environment that was in big trouble. My tank is super clear now..!!

Can't find a better filter

Comments: I personally own the Hagen AquaClear 20 for a 15 Gallon, 30 for a 29 gallon, 50 for a 40 gallon, and 70 for a 65 gallon. The 20, 30, and 70 all work perfectly, and have been for literally 4-5 years. They are they only HOB filter I know of that uses a reverse flow!!! Which is great for running media/housing macro algae!! There are some great DIY modifications to turn you AquaClear into a mini Refugium The ONLY complaint I have, is when I got my Aquaclear 50 last week, the top will not fit onto the filter!!!! I have done everything and I must have gotten a defective top/intake tube!!!! So that's why I only give 4 1/2 star

Comments: I've used this filter for over 20 years. Simple design, great water flow. Nothing ever goes wrong with it, it lasts forever. I like the simplicity of it, easy to clean. It's the only hang on filter I use. Great for both fresh and saltwater. I even use them for my reef tanks, works great! Hands down the best hang on filter on the market.
