AQUATOP PF-600 Power Filter

The PF-600 Power Filter by AQUATOP is an easy to use dual, 2 stage hang on filter that features mechanical and chemical filtration. The PF-600 has an adjustable flow rate and uses an easy to change drop in Filter Cotton insert along side a drop in carbon insert, both of which are included.

How Does the PF-600 Work?
As water passes through the filter, it reaches the unique Bio-Wall This is where the beneficial bacteria that is colonizing on the wall will break down the toxic ammonia and nitrite. Next, before the water returns back into the aquarium, it passes through the cotton wrapped carbon insert where the mechanical and chemical filtration process takes place. This allows the carbon to remove discoloration, odors, and other impurities from your water.

Great filter but could use some tuning
June 20, 2014
I got two of these for my 75 Gal bow front and they arrived to me perfect in the box. and the work awesome but i feel like the plastic is made of recycled water bottles, its sturdy and strong but i feel that if i drop it or push on it to hard it may snap. So if the plastic could be PLA or ABS that would be better.
Great filter decent flow and awesome packaging GREAT PRICE
could be made with better plastic

Works ok, does need a full tank to work properly. Often requires priming.

Excellent hob filter for 20g tank
August 3, 2012
I bought this filer after trying several other filters of comparable flow rates. This is by far the quietest filter I found. The filter media is pretty good, and it did a pretty good job at keeping the tank clean. Recently I added a partition with an opening at the bottom and placed it in the area where the filter goes in. Made a carbon holder from some meshed fabric, and am using filter floss and carbon at the primary side of the water flow. After the water comes up from the opening in the partition, it passes through foam bacterial media. This ensures that all of the water is filtered in the same way and there is no bypass. I am happy to say that the tank is sparkling clean with no need for clarifiers and the like. I will recommend this for use in 20 gallon tanks since thats what I have, but it should be fine for up to 30 or 35 gallons too I would think.

great filter
April 12, 2012
Great filter, don't think you'll find anything better for under $20 or even $30. I'm very happy with this filter. There's a lot of surface area for biological filtration in the form of two foam blocks. The two polishing pads with carbon seem up to the task.

Clear Water
March 19, 2012
I have a 30 gallon tank with a variety of fresh water fish. Received filter, cleaned filters and housing, installed, plugged in and has been working great for the last 2 + weeks. Crystal clear water. Very quiet-can only hear the water running into the tank. Filters easy to remove and clean. Fits my needs, especially for just under $20.

Great, Simple & Easy to Use HOB Filter!!
July 28, 2011
The PF-600 Hang on Back Filter is great for beginner hobbyist to expert hobbyist. The PF-600 does not have a lot of parts and pieces which means there is less of a change for something to break. I find this to be a big two thumbs up. The unit itself comes with replaceable filter pad that contain carbon and decent sized sponges filters. If the PF-600 is maintained properly it will serve well as a mechanical, chemical and biological filter making it your one-stop filter. I have a PF-600 supporting a Nano-Reef tank which is home to my 5 years old Fu Manchu Lionfish and various pieces of soft coral. I top-off the system with freshwater a couple times a week; about a half gallon. I do a partial water change once a week; about 3 -4 gallons. I rinse the filer sponges once a week, and I replace the carbon enhanced filter pads once a month. If the PF-660 can handle my nano coral reef with Fu Manchu Lionfish it will certainly take care of your tank!
