AquaClear 50 power filter is the best power filter with a maximum water flow rate of 200 gallons per hour, and flow can also be adjusted. Its power consumption of 6 watts with a flow rate of 200 gallons per hour makes this an energy efficient lower operating cost filter.

We can put AquaClear foam insert in the bottom for mechanical filtration by removing tiny particles from water. AquaClear foam porous structure allows bacteria to grow inside which helps in biological filtration.

Keeping AquaClear activated carbon media in middle layer or top layer helps in removing impurities and chemical contaminants from water.

Aquaclear Biomax ceramic rings can also place in top or bottom based on your choice. Ceramic rings complex pore system allows bacteria to grow inside it. Bio bacteria will convert nitrite to nitrate which is suitable for fishes.
