    Aquaclear Filter Questions

    I have an older Aquaclear with a propeller that rattles, even after I replaced it with a new one. I just unplug it and replug and that stops it until the next time it's off for cleaning or tank water changes. Sometimes the lids will vibrate as well, just make sure they are on securely.

    I miss the "winner icon" it was a great way to show the post or information was right on. Personally I find the love eye's on a smiley sort of childish, would rather just see a heart symbol.
