I'm running Azoo Mignon 60 and Mignon 150 filters; called Palm filters in most places.

The 60 comes with an intake prefilter sponge and on the 150 I used the Fluval Edge pre-filter sponge #1. Both Azoo filters have adjustable intake flow regulators and pickup tube extensions; and both filters use the same motor.

I have setup each filter using only one of the 2 foam inserts Azoo supplies along with a bag of AQ BioMax 20 ceramics topped off by an AQ BioFoam 30 foam block cut to size.

Measuring temperature
I also hid a digital thermo in my filter's pickup chamber, the lid fits right over the wire

And I just suction cupped the thermo to the side of the filter so it's all "self contained" for cleanings.

I have the Azoo 60 on our 2G tanks, up to 3G, and the 150 on our 6G. The 60 and 150 stand for Liters per Hour. These are small filters.
