there is always a way to modify it to make it work if the space in the lid is not the right size.

your lid should have "pre-scored" notches in the back to fit pretty much any size HOB filters. I agree, go with Aquaclear. You won't regret it.

Thanks a lot, sounds good. By the way it is a fresh water aquarium in which I plan to rescue the pond goldfish I inherited for the winter. The pond needs a complete overhaul.

if youre putting goldfish in there, definately want the aquaclear.. also you may even want to bump up the size as well depending on how many you have and how big they are... they are very nasty fish and you will battle water quality issues with inadequate filtration

I have been using Aquaclear filters for over 15 years. They work great!

Now I am not advocating this filter so you can get out of doing the water changes that are needed for the health of your fish, but I think this is a great testimonial for these filters. If you want silent then go with a canister (I hate mine it is a pain to clean)

Agree Whisper filters are junk.
Talk about charma.... After this post I did my regular maintenance, and now I cant get the water cleared up. Barely see through it. Little amonia but high Nitrates and nitrites.... That'll teach me.
