Topfin 10 filter

I know the Aqua Clear's can have their impellers switched out for a more powerful one (ie. 10gal filter with a 30gal impeller). I'm just wondering if it's the same for the Topfin filters?

as far as I've heard it's complete safe just increases your suction. If you google it tonnes of people do it

yeah I've got a Topfin 10 and AC 300 in my 20 gal and an aqua-tech 10 on my 10gallon. The aqua-tech work better than the top fin tbh

Ok I wish I could find just the filter pads without the carbon though. Those pads polish water really well. I was gonna put one in my aquaclear.
