Filter on way out

Think my filter is in way out. It's struggling even when cleaned out.

64 litre freshwater tank. Any recommendations on a new one (or at least a backup replacement in case)?

I always recommend aquaclear filters for financially and efficiency. But what filter doyou have and what is the issue?

Believe it is an Interpret which came with tank. It is hesitating or pulsing and even in past when clogged somewhat, that never happened. I need an emergency backup anyway.

Aquaclears are the way to go. Some people (like me) use Marineland Penguins, but the better Penguin models are the ones for bigger tanks. I have the 350 on my 55 gallon.

Who say's that you can't have more than one tank? Just get one more... just one...
