But, to your question!
IME AquaClears are the best HOB
filter out there. They are quiet and easy to install, set up and use. You will really like it. They also come with a basket you can put the filter media in, so you can customize what you want to put in the filter. Contrary to what the manufacturer boxes say, you don't need to change the filter cartridges often.
Also, if the intake tube is too long, you can take one of them off so that way it isn't. You can also adjust the flow rate as well. To clean the filter media, just fill up a bucket with tank water, take out the basket with the tank cartridges, rinse them in there and they're clean but still preserving the bacteria!
To clean the intake tubes, you can swish them around in tank water as well or use pipe cleaners to clean them.
Hope this helped you with the filter!
