aquaclear filter

just recieced my aquaclear 50. the set up was easy, and it is extremely quiet. i love the flow adjustment knob. after an hour or so i could see my tank start to clear up. the fine particles that i used to see in the water are non existant. im truly impressed with it, and i would love to hear from some other aquaclear owners.

I love mine. Replaced the noisy Topfin 60 with the super silent AC110 on my 55 gallon.

I've never owned one, but I pretty much know everything about them. I like their tight, compact design.

I still have a aquaclear 550, now called the 110, it is at least 7 years old and still works great! It has about 3 years of continual use.

I also have a AC 50.

The best thing about them is their simplicity.

the greatest HOB for media options. I don't use the carbon, but I can if I need to. All of my AC's work great. I like to add the cut to fit pads. My water is super clean all the time.
