Hi all, I had an AquaClear 50 and Marineland Penguin 150 both running on the back of my 40 gallon freshwater tank. Last night, after I did a water change, when I turned the power strip back on, only the Marineland Penguin 150 started running again, and the AC
50 didn't budge. Motor wasn't running at all, and I tried multiple outlets. It looks like it just died - and it's less than 6 months old!
Has anyone had this happen before, to such a new filter? I had heard that the AC
50 was a good filter and so far it had been great until now. I haven't looked into the return policy yet, but I'd like to get a new one or a refund from either Hagen or Amazon. (Another theory is that my power strip is too old and doesn't regulate power well enough...but everything else was fine, so I doubt that's the problem.)
Should I try to get another AC 50 or is there a better HOB out there?
