Features and Specifications:
AQUATOP IFE-30 Internal Filter w/ Spray Bar and Bottom jet stream to clean debris in tank corners, perfect for turtle tank
AQUATOP’s IFE Series of internal filters is a great space-saving and flexible method of filtration. These quiet and efficient filtration devices come equipped with the optional spray bar attachment for wider range output or use the traditional one-way spray for stronger concentrated water flow. Each filter uses a dense sponge for maximum mechanical filtration.

The IFE Series allows for multiple water return options. The Spray Bar feature is adjustable to control water flow and swivels left to right. When the Spray Bar is removed and capped the Water Curtain feature becomes available for use. The larger models of the IFE Series offer water return from the bottom of the unit as well. The Bottom Return feature of the IFE is a true innovation keeping organics suspended and out of cracks and crevices.

The IFE Series filter draws water into the filter from all directions due to the cylindrical-shaped intake. This innovation helps to create an over-all current keeping organics suspended for the filter to pick up. The larger models of the IFE Series have an included, self-adjusting surface skimmer which promotes gas exchange, removes surface scum, and aids in keeping a stable pH.

The IFE Series uses a bottom-mounted pump to move water thru and past multiple filtration compartments. Multiple filtration compartments allow for complete customization of filtration media. All models of the IFE Series come with AquaTop Filter Sponges and AquaTop’s Activated Carbon. Biological Filtration can be achieved when using AquaTop’s ceramic rings.

I was curious is there any filters to change on the ife30? If so where do you get them and how often do they need to be replaced. If there are no filters how do you can the unit?
By Customer Service on January 25, 2012

Greetings Ken,

We have received you recent inquiry regarding the IFE-30. Each unit has four filtration compartments and includes two dense filter sponges, and two activated carbon cartridges. The filters sponges are very durable and should last the better part of a year. The activated carbon should be replaced on average every thirty days.

If there is anything further we may do for you please let us know.

I'm moving my 6" turtle to a 20 gallon tank, will this filter model be able to keep it clean?

By Customer Service on December 3, 2012

Hello Bethany,
The IFE30 internal filter is very capable of handling the demands of your turtle tank. In fact, it’s a crew favorite. For the space in your setup, we recommend going with the IFE20. The IFE20 will also be able to keep up with the demands of a turtle tank and offer the turtle a little more room to move around. The dimensions of the IFE20 are as follows: 3.5inch diameter x 4.0inches deep (front to back suction cup mounts) x 11.0 inches long. Thank you!

Is the flow rate adjustable on the IFE-30 when not using the spraybar?
By Customer Service on June 8, 2012

Hello Wayne,

We have received your recent product inquiry regarding AquaTop's IFE-30. When the Spray Bar feature is not in use the flow rate of the Water Curtain feature is not adjustable from the top of the unit.. Both the IFE-20 & IFE-30 have bottom mounted pumps which offer a bottom return. You can adjust the output of the Water Curtain feature by opening or closing the bottom return.

The IFE units have many bells and whistles making them one of the most versatile filters on the market today.

If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask.

How many gallons is this rated for?
By Customer Service on December 27, 2012

Hello Tammy,
For a turnover rate of about two times per hour, the IFE-30 filter is capable of handling aquariums up to 80 gallons. For increased filtration capacity, you could run two of the units to double your filtration capacity and turnover rate.

Thank you,
