Is this for a freshwater, saltwater or planted tank?

I think it's general.

Are you thinking HOB, or canister?

Aqua Clears are a very good HOB filter. No filter cartridges to buy, and there is room to add extra media if you want. Very reliable filter. I have some that are at least 15-20 yrs old and still running on the original impeller.
