With a host of features including a self-priming pump, dual water intake, adjustable flow, maintenance monitor, and a filter basket that holds any kind of filtration media - and more of it - Tidal Power Filters are hang on back filters designed to deliver the highest water quality possible with maximum versatility and ease of use.

Made in Italy by Sicce!

Key Features
  • Large Capacity: design of the large filter basket allow for any type of Seachem filter media, which can be interchanged and placed in custom configurations.
  • Effective Water Flow: the Tidal Power Filter system is designed for easy and convenient maintenance. The filter media basket is designed to hold the largest volume of filter media versus other brands and prevents any water by-pass around the filter media.
  • Dual Water Intakes: the dual water intake feature will capture water from just below the surface, where excreted fish oils accumulates, and deeper in the tank removing floating debris.
  • Maintenance Monitor: a monitor reminds you when to clean the filter.
  • Water Diversion Chanel: in the event of a clog, overflow goes back into your aquarium.
  • Precise Leveling Device: allows you to adjust the filter positioning.
  • Flow Regulation: allows you to fully adjust the performance to a specific aquarium volume, type, or provide an environment for fish which prefer more or less water movement for fish which prefer more or less water movement or oxygen. This features offers up to 80% reduction of maximum flow intake while making continuous full use of the filter monitor. When reduced intake flows are selected, the refiltration grid allows for water to re-circulate throught the filter media to maximize filtration performance through increased contact time.

  • Wattage = 6W / 120V ~60Hz

It’s good

reviewerbadge
PROS
Powerful, loots of room for media of your choice in the media basket, media basket retention device
CONS
Just as noisy as other hand on the back filter, the blue dials, the skimmer is too big and there should be a better way to securely close it
REVIEW
This is a decent filter. It plenty powerful, has a deep wide media basket and starts right up.
The blue dials bothered me so I painted them with flat black krylon spray pain. I added additional pumice to media bag and I added additional foam padding of different coarseness which I cut from large...Read More

I expected better

reviewerbadge
PROS
It’s quite, it’s made of good quality plastic and has decent power to filter a 10 gallon aquarium.
CONS
No clip to hold the media basket in place, the pump is exposed and not secured good enough, the foam filter pad is overly porous.
REVIEW
The filter works, is made of good plastic and it’s not noisy.
What I don’t like is
1) There is no clip to secure the media basket like on the larger models.
2) The sponge it comes with is super coarse and by itself is pointless to be included.
The pump only comes 1/3 the way d...Read More

Seachem Tidal 35, Great Filter but No Intake Pipe

PROS
Silent, excellent surface agitation, highly adjustable flow
CONS
No Intake tube
REVIEW
This unit replaced a Fluval C3. That unit was noisy, rattled, and the media cartridges plugged after a week in very lightly stocked corydora tank (6 Julii in a 20L). The Tidal 35 is brilliant, quiet, more adjustable flow and better build quality. The Tidal has a slightly smaller media capacity than ...Read More

REVIEW
I love this filter because of the media chamber. It allows me to change to what my tank needs as it ages. Stopped using bio as my tank matured. Currently running gfo and carbon.
