sorry Doug Been away from the pc, had a surprise as I had wrigglers in my main tank when doing my water change tonight...

lost the ebay link but found the filter here..

http://www.almeria-aquatics.eu/index.php?page=shop.product_details&product_id=30&flypage=flypage.tpl&pop=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=30

I do hope the link works.

I have a aquarist friend who breeds fish and he's been selling aquatronix internal power filters on ebay for a while.
After chatting to him tonight he asked me if I would swap a new Aquatronix IPF-003 for a few of my spare ancistrus.

As I have been unable to find much about them I said I would think about it and let him know.

I was thinking of setting the Aquatronix IPF003 up in my Juwel Rekord 80 which already as a Fluval Plus 4 filter inside the aquarium.
Once the aquatronix filter is cycled I was going to remove it and instal it into another bristlenose grow out tank.

I was wondering if you one of you would check out the filter and give me your thoughts on it.

I am assured it is good for fry and grow out tanks as the flitration flow is adjustable and the intake is protected.

Will find out shortly...

thank you in advance..

exactly what I thought lol....

back to the aqua one for the grow out / fry tank
