I don't think so, I have spent literally hours online trying to find them. They can be imported from the US but in America, they run a different voltage than Europe(or most of it). This probably the reason. I have tried to get a lot of equipment that our American friends have raved about but no luck. The Fluval C range, which many view as an updated Aquaclear, are available.
Hagen own both companies....

I was about to say I thought Hagen and Fluval were European based companies (not sure why). But I forgot about the voltage thing
I suppose you can get an Ehiem canister.
Good luck in your quest.

I think your right. Both Hagen and Fluval are German, I think!!. Hagen bought Aquaclear, so that might explain why they don't sell Aquaclears in Europe and they decided to update it and brand it as a Fluval. I could be wrong, just a thought!!!

You don't like the Fluval C range?
They seem a bit pricey for a HOB filter- I can get a 1000 l/hr canister for the price of the ones I've seen! :0

On topic
I would get 2 filters for gold fish either aquaclear's or fluval C or go canister if you can.

Off topic

Oh that it is ladie but why do would Europeans immigrate if their countries were so great ? I'm Irish / German and eeeek a tiny bit polish. Features of a German if you know what I mean hairy tall and giant feet size 13" that's 1 foot 1 inch that's 33cm and I'm 6'3 . Haha but my full name is Patrick James Riley haha

And no theft if they moved here once you move to a new country you are a citizen their "if done legally ofcoarse" and still why did things have to get so switched around makes everything more difficult

I'm sure the Native American Indians didn't issue visas or citizenship back then. I think your name says it all...Paddy...haha
It is a pity, for us anyway, that we don't all use the same current/voltage...
I think we should leave it there, sorry OP!!!
PS... Henry Ford was an Irish/American
