Aqua Nova NCF1500 spare parts

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon All,

New to this forum and was hoping someone might be able to help me :)

I'm chasing a new motor head unit for my external canister - apparently the Aqua Nova's are  being made obsolete....?  So I'm finding it quite difficult to find someone that stocks them and parts, still.  

I really want to avoid having to buy a new filter if possible at the moment.... if I do I was thinking about the Aqua One 2700 uv type....... any opinions on those would be welcome, too..... in fact, any opinions on canister filters that people have found to be brilliant would be great, please - and rough prices.

I'm on the Sunny Coast so purchasing local would be best but if the postage isn't too hefty, quite happy to shop online.

Thanks!

Have a great evening,

Annie

Hi and welcome to the site :welcome:I have the aqua one 2700 on my 6x2x2 it's been  on there for 3 years now and it's had a hard time when I I had the African in there with sand  with no hassle at all

Thank you  :) From all the research I've done into the aqua one it's sounding pretty cool - I only have a  180ltr 4ft but it's fairly well populated - balanced, with mixed fish and actually all healthy and happy.  I just don't like the fluval I got to cover the aqua nova  while I was hunting for parts - it just doesn't cut it - too small.... anyway, I've found Aquaholics on ebay have a good price on the aqua one but if I can get a new motor head  I'd be rapt - the nova has been awesome for my tank :)

Thanks again!

Annie

Depends on your bank balance but i am a convert to the Fluval Fx's 

Had the Aqua One 2700 on my 6x2x2 and have recently switched to the FX6 and for me I wont turn back.

I never seemed to be able to get all the air out of the Aqua One canister and the hoses are quite inflexible due to size which was an issue as i cant get to the rear of my tank, i cant fault its actual filtering capacity and it has a huge (i mean huge, amount of room for media in the 4 cages in the canister, a lot more room for added media than the FX6.

Its now living on my 4x2x2, water flow in the tank seems just a little high maybe but i am only using 2 pieces of the 3 piece spray bar

Everyone has got their own opinion though.

You can buy through our sponsors and Tech Den and AOA  both give discounts to site members (the other sponsor's may too, i just haven't ordered from them) and will ship  so worth having a look at or a chat with them before purchasing 

They both may even be able to help with parts if you jump on there web sites. (Links at the top of the page)

Hello Slipshodman :)

Thankyou very much for the info - will look into the bigger Fx's, too.

Appreciate the info re the discounts - that will certainly help!

Thanks, and have a great day!
