    Are AquaClear and Fluval Aqua Clear the same? I am trying to buy a Aqua Clear 20 and can only find Fluval Aqua Clear in that size. Could it just be that I need to order it online?

    Hagen owns Fluval and Aquaclear, Not sure why they've decided to brand them as fluval aquaclear though.

    Yes they are the same.

    Hagen is a big company that spreads out across many different pet supplies. They bought Fluval, but Fluval is basically on its own if you understand what I mean. It is like how Lexis is a branch from Toyota. I believe the AquaClear filters were bought by Fluval or Hagen is trying to popularize AquaClear filter by putting Fluval's brand on it. Fluval is a big name in the aquarium hobby so when their name is on a product people are more likely to buy it.

    It's just branding for different distribution outlets. Probably trying to maximize each brands recognition with different consumers.
