Aqueon® QuietFlow Aquarium Power Filter 30
I love this filter. I've had it over a year. I occasionally scrub chemical & salt build-up off it. Otherwise it works just fine.

I really like this filter. I wanted to replace a penguin 150 bio wheel that I was totally unhappy with. I decided on the Aqueon 30 Quietflow. The main reason is that when the pump shuts off it doesn't need to be prime. Other filters would burn out if I had a lost of power. Its very quiet compared to my penguin and filters 50 gallons more per hour. It keeps my 20 gal Aquarium crystal clear. I would highly recommend this filter to anyone.

Powerful and quiet
This filter is quite powerful and is also quiet. Make sure to fill the water in the aquarium up to the edge of the water exiting. This way the filter water exiting doesn't splash and you won't hear a suction noise. It I'll be extremely loud if the water gets to low. Like any filter the motor has to work extra hard to fight less water pressure. If you look inside the filter, aqueon added multiple fins to quiet the turbulent water entering from the turbine. All you should hear is a beautiful trickle of water.
