  1. Hey fishie buddies, Came across these filters that are identical to basic hob filters, except this has a canister and a spray bar. I would prefer a spray bar over a fountain/waterfall effect for my next tank. Tank will be a 15cm shallow nano, so I cannot go for bigger canisters. Has anyone seen these around brisbane? I have looked around but no luck. Hoping someone here can? Cheers! Kev.

  6. Im about to get a 2200 Lph external filter with a UV bulb. Since it comes with a UV bulb I was wondering if I turn the bulb on just as I turn it on, or do I wait a few weeks so I get some bacteria growth in there, or do I just turn it on straight away? I have a new tank so I guess there isn't much good bacteria yet. Just don't really know what to do

  8. Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone has had experience with external heaters such at this one: http://www.aquariumproducts.com.au/catalogue_products.php?prodID=3282&catID=7 I have a feeling that more things could go wrong, but it's also one less thing in the tank.

  9. Hi All. Great price today on the OTTO PF300G External Canister Filters. Today only $99.00 Link - Age of Aquariums - OTTO PF300G Ben
  10. Hello, I was wondering what the best setup for the FX5 filter is? I have African Cichlids in a 800x1200x400 tank. Its on display as you you enter my home, so i would really love to build my filter the best i can that will last a while before i have to clean or change certain elements. What media should i use from bottom / middle / top. I have had problems in the past with the filter stopping on a regular basis, at the moment i am running on ceramic rings/noodles, bio balls, and the supplied filter pads. The water is not clear anymore?? I have used macropore and that seemed to help quite a lot, but i was wondering is there any other methods to keep the water healthy, crystal clear for my fish. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot Craig

  22. Hi All. We have sold OTTO external canister filters since we started back in 2000. Sales slowed down on these units in 2011 and decided to discontinue the sale of these units. The Demand for a quality non chinese made unit has increased especially in the last 12 months so we have gone back to what i know is a quality product with a good track record for reliability and performance. Link - Age of Aquariums - OTTO PF300G Link - Age of Aquariums - OTTO PF450G Priced from $179.00 for the 1200lph model up to $199.00 for 1800lph model. These units really do pump the water when compared to a chinese made unit which generally speaking exaggerate the LPH. Usual Discounts apply. Ben
