AquaEl – Fan Filter
AQUAEL FAN internal filter is designed for the cleaning and aeration of aquariums water. Thanks to the carefully selected sponge on a perforated arbour, the filter is dirt-resistant and does not require frequent cleaning. The protective plastic container intercepts coarse pollutants, which ensures the long-lasting efficient filtration of aquarium water.
FAN internal filter is easy to install and operate. The specially designed filter media chamber prevents water from flowing out of the filter and into the fish tank during water changes or when the filter is removed from the aquarium e.g. in order to wash the sponge.
The sealed rotor chamber ensures quiet operation and high performance at a relatively low level of power consumption.
In addition, the MICRO model of AQUAEL FAN filters can operate in very shallow water (as little as 2 inches deep) which makes it ideal even for the smallest of aquaterrariums.
Uniquely to FAN internal filters, performance can be conveniently adjusted without the need to insert hands into the water, since the dome with an ergonomic control dial can be placed above the water surface.
The direction of water outflow can be adjusted by up to 75°.

McMerwe’s Review: If you compare these to the Dophin/Haliea/SunSun filter currently in the market – they definetely are much better. Variable speed and more realiable parts. They also come with slightly more Mechanical filtration media which translates to a healthier ecosystem. If you have the money, rather go for the Seachem Tidal Hang on Filters if you can afford them. These however are still a very realiable option and rated best in its catergory. It also comes with a airator fitting as well as hong on brackets in case you don’t want to use the suction cups. [Rating 4.5/5]
