Product Features

Higher Flow Rates

Aqueon filters have higher flow rates than the competition to ensure proper turnover for cleaner water and higher dissolved oxygen content, making fish healthier and more active.

Superior Biological Filtration

The patented biological grid has a large surface area to support more of the beneficial bacteria that eliminates ammonia and nitrates. A second wet/dry grid provides further biological filtration and oxygenation as the water returns to the aquarium.

Internal Pump Design

Since the filter pump is submersed in the aquarium, there is no need for priming at setup or when restarting the filter after cleaning or power interruptions. An internal pump also allows for virtually silent operation, continuous flow raters, less chance for leaks, and a much thinner profile.

Four Stage Advanced Filtration System

Stage 1: Dense floss removes particles and debris.

Stage 2: Activated carbon removes toxins, odors and discoloration.

Stage 3: Patented Bio-Holster removes toxic ammonia and nitrites.

Stage 4: Diffuser grid removes additional toxins while adding oxygen for more active fish. It also reduces splashing makes the return exceptionally quiet.

Works great if you make your own filter inserts I’ve used this filter for the last 18 months purely for mechanical/chemical filtration. I use a fluval 204 canister filter that has all three trays filled with biomax ceramic media to take care of all the biological filtration so I can’t speak to that aspect of the Aqueon filter’s function. As anyone with a decent amount of fish keeping experience will tell you counting on a HOB filter (with inserts of the type the Aqueon filter uses) for biological filtration is not ideal since when you change or clean inserts you lose most of your beneficial bacteria colony.However in regards to it’s mechanical and chemical filtration performance: this filter has a really powerful pump that moves a huge amount of water and thus it does a fantastic job of pulling floating particles in when they get within 2-3 inches of the intake. On the downside this means the filter inserts (it uses 2 at a time) clog very quickly and the thin cotton material used on the official Aqueon cotton/carbon inserts…

Awesome filter! I absolutely love this filter. Most filters are really noisy, and since I have a fish tank in my room, this wasn’t an option. I ran into the quietflow for a 20 gallon and was amazed by its results. It’s blissfully quiet and does an amazing job at filtering. The additional plastic piece that allows beneficial bacteria to grow fits well and does a great job. I was so pleased with the quietflow that I replaced all my fish tank filters with it and haven’t been happier!

Power Filter Head Flows lots of water quietly. Would recommend to anyone with 50 gal or more. easy to adjust the draw tube.
