Hagen Aqua Clear Power Filter Review
Designed to fully exploit the benefits of removing aquarium waste both mechanically and biologically. The waterfall style output of the filter agitates the water surface while creating beneficial currents throughout the entire volume of the aquarium.
Filtering basket allows you to add both the manufacturer’s filtration cartridges and your own filtering materials. Includes a patented system for easy flow adjustment. Dust cover reduces evaporation.
Aqua Clear filters are decent products. They are inexpensive and very easy to maintain. I use them for my hospital tank and also use them as backup filters if needed.
They are good filters but I hesitate to recommend them because they do have two big problems:
1)They have difficulties in self-priming. When the filters are unplugged or the power goes out, they may or may not automatically restart when power is reconnected. Because of that, the filter may run dry and burn if you’re not home to prime it. I went throught over 20 Aqua Clear filters because of that.
