Aquael Pat-Mini filters

Recommended Posts

Very keen to experiment with a few of these filters in some 20 litre tanks I'm setting up - tanks will primarily be used as plant grow-outs, but toying with the idea of also raising juvie fish above the plants. Have used Eheim Pick-Up 45's in the past for small tanks, but would not put smaller fish (~10mm) in with one given the way the intake is designed pulling through the impeller prior to filter sponge.

Love to know if anyone has used these Aquael filters, & has any feedback?

Looking locally, these are available from The Tech Den, but the product pic shows a very coarse sponge around the intake:

I've seen a number of reviews for the Aquael online, & many have pics of the unit fitted with a much finer sponge:

Tech Den - do you carry the finer or coarser sponge model, & if not the finer, is it available as an upgraded filter cover/separate product?

Had no idea, @mbunamad - but well worth knowing, & will likely take advantage of the live-chat in future! Keen to get a little feedback now from both Tech & users, as will be passing back & forward passed Tech Den this weekend on multiple Christmas travels up the highway both Saturday & Sunday...

@The Tech Den :help:
