There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A cool bonus is the ability to rotate the head so the water can streamed out at a different angle. I tried a few different positions, and the filter kept on working the same, but in the end I left it in its original stance for aesthetic reasons.
The filter is QUIET. I had gotten used to the loud hum and trickle of my old filter but this one is very gentle, and soothing to fall asleep to.
One recommendation: DO NOT use the filter cartridges they send with. Buy your own media. I got a nice little filter foam and put it in along with some ceramic rings instead. I just take it apart during my weekly water changes, rinse out the foam then put the ceramic rings in and pop it right back together, no problem.
As for the pictures, fyi that the ugly scratches on my 40yr old tank have nothing to do with the filter.
Update: One year later and this filter still works great! Love it.
One modification I made was to the blue (biofilter) cartridge. I cut all of the fins/spikes off of it with a dremel so it was flat, and filled that side of the filter up with Fluval biological media so I could achieve maximum surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow on. Also, there's no need to buy their replacement cartridges, you can simply clip the cage off one side of the cartridge and insert your own filter floss/foam/etc.
I've been running this filter now for a year with no problems. The only gripe I can say is like with any internal filter, you have to reach in the tank and remove it in order to perform maintenance.
The two photographs I included are both using this filter, the planted version was when I ran the same 20 gallon with pressurized co2 etc. and then the current (lazy and low-maintenance version) of my tank. Happy customer here!
10 Gallon - AT10 - 28-57 gallons per hour, 2.6 watts, 1 small filter
20 Gallon - AT15 - 32-66 gallons per hour, 2.6 watts, 2 small filters
30 Gallon - AT30 - 76-142 gallons per hour, 7 watts, 1 large filter
40 Gallon - AT40 - 83-155 gallons per hour, 7 watts, 2 large filters
So you'll notice the AT10 and AT15 are nearly identical in gallons per hour, as is the AT30 compared to the AT40. The only difference, is some use 1 filter while the others use 2, thereby doubling your filter cost for no real benefit in gallons per hour. The water outlet is very crude in my opinion. This would be more suited for turtles perhaps, but for fish, I found it to be very severe and disruptive. And the tab to increase or decrease the flow is VERY stiff and difficult to move. The whole thing is just awkward and poorly designed.
I ended up going with the Penn Plax Cascade 300, primarily because of the shower style water outlet. I have it angled to the back wall of my tank so it's not hitting the water in the tank full force, sending the current down the glass. My giant betta loves it and goes body surfing in the current all the time. He looks like he's having a lot of fun, and that just wouldn't be possible with this Aqueon. The AT10 isn't enough flow for a 10 gallon tank, and the AT30 is too big, so take it for what it's worth.

All in all, the pros of good price, quietness, strength of flow, and water clarity outweigh that one con.
Oh, I also am not using the filter media that came with it. I have a cut up bit of aquaclear sponge and a little but of seachem matrix in there :)
