Azoo AZ13097 First Impressions

Water crystal clear.

I wasn't able to fill my tank fully because there was little to no surface agitation. This filter comes with a sponge, activated carbon, and bio material in a mesh bag. SO, I sat down and read EVERY little thing in rhe instructions. I will pick 3-4 of these at one time over a single system any day. They are simply the best design for nitrifying bacteria to grow on. I also don't like how short the intake tube is. I used a small pair of pliers and carefully got the pebbles out.

Azoo AZ13097 Final Thoughts

No need to unplug.

The lever on the bottom helps even the filter out. I returned the Aqua Clear 70 and promptly received a replacement. My old pump was not working very well so I had to make a major clean up. Clean the foam insert apparently it pulled a lot of dirt and needs cleaned. This is a well designed unit and a lot of bang for the buck. It doesn't rise up hugely above the tank like a lot of HOB filters. It wasn't producing much surface agitation.
