Juwel tank

I have a juwel aquarium with all the juwel bits n bobs i.e filter and heater. Could I get rid of them and replace with after market products or would it be wise to keep what's there and just upgrade?

Hi Adam, I have 2 juwel tank's (rio and rekord ) I upgraded both pumps on my tank's as I felt I needed something stronger. My rio filter I can't fault it, it's done a great job but I find the one in the rekord not so good so I'm running a aqua flow 200 internal in there as well. So its really up to you, which juwel do you have?
I just noticed it's the 60 litre, what problems are you having? Or do you just want to remove the filter?

Hi, it should tell you on the pump what model it is? I only use juwel so they fit in my filter's sorry. But I do find my heater on my rio is a nightmare to keep the tank warm.
Nice set up! Really like it ☺

You should have seen mine when I started pink gravel! Lol
Live plant's are great to keep, best thing I did. It took me a while to get my tank's the way I wanted but you'll get there.

You should try ebay for your test kit, that's where I buy mine and it's a lot cheaper.
