    Hagen's AquaClear Power Filters!

    Since 1978, AquaClear has been producing the world's best-selling clip-on aquarium filter.  In fact, AquaClear invented the very first one with a hermetically-sealed pump in the late 1970's!  This enduring success is due to the simple chamber basket design that lets fish-hobbyists customize their filter media to suit their needs. The motor technology is revolutionary, too, in that it features a single moving part - the free-floating magenetic impeller designed for ultimate wear-resistence and service life.

    Using magnetic technology the impeller floats inside a magnetic field, which reduces heat, friction, and general wear.  This means a longer product life, consistent performance, and less energy consumption.  This also led to other innovations such as flow control, refiltration, and AquaClear's CycleGuard. 

    AquaClear allows users to adjust their water flow with water control, as well, to a specific water type or volume.  When fish might need a little more or less water movement during certain times like feeding, this is a particularly useful attribute.  It can reduce flow intake by up to 66% without compromising filtration efficiency.
    When a reduced flow is chosen, AquaClear has a patented refiltration system that re-circulates the water through the filter media to optimize performance through increased media contact time. That way, up to 50% of the water in the filter chamber is circulated multiple times to ensure biological stability and a clean, healthy tank.

    There are 3 forms of filtration provided through this system via the CycleGuard Versatile Filtration - mechanical, biological, and chemical.  When one type of media gets replaced using the multiple filtration inserts, the media balances out to maintain biological filtration. 
    The AquaClear filters also extract the entire potential of the container so that the whole filter's volume is fully utilized. Filter media capability is maximized by the filter media baskets, and it prevents water by-pass to allow easy removal and installation of filter inserts.  The natural waterfall design provides efficient water distribution and optimal oxygenation on the surface.

    AquaClear filters can be used with any type of filter media, making this line very versatile.  They can even be interchanged or customized through various configurations without the worry of disruption of the biological stability.

    Right now until July 13th, you can try out one of the AquaClear Power Filters at a 10% OFF discount with your Extra Value Card at Uncle Bill's Pet Centers!

  • NEW Aqueon PRO Foods!

    NEW Aqueon PRO Foods!

    Since the 2 most important factors in keeping healthy, happy fish are their food and water quality, Aqueon has given great consideration to the natural diets of fish with their new PRO Foods line!

    You are what you eat! Each fish's diet affects their growth, coloration, immunity to diseases, resistance to stress, breeding, and even the length of their lives. Depending on the family to which each fish belongs, how what they eat has evolved over time, and whether they are carnivores, herbivores, or omnivores there are many factors that are pertinent to your fish's diet - and therefore health.  Grouping fish by type and assuming they eat the same food deprives many species of proper nutrition. That's why Aqueon has worked to make fish food that closely matches the ingredients your fish eat in nature with regards to how your fish's body processes food

    Each crucial factor has been evaluated for top-notch fish nutrition, including:  ingredients found in nature; how the fishes' digestive systems have evolved; nutritional value of various ingredients for each type of fish; feeding depth in water; particle size per the size fish's mouth and feeding habits; multiple plant and protein based formulas; and complete and balanced nutrition with digestible vitamins and nutrients.

    What's more the new Wellplex, a proprietary blend of macro and micro algae as well as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, supports the fish’s immune system more holistically.  The Revitanew formula is a combination of hightly palatable and probiotic ingredients - with increased proteins and fats - to help holistically combat the negative effects of stress on fish, such as not eating, too.

    There's plenty of variety with 6 formulas to choose from:  BettaCarnivore; Community; Goldfish; Herbivore; and Revitanew.  Aqueon PRO foods are high quality, formulated with ingredients designed by leading fish nutritionists, and focused on the natural diet of the fish.  With healthy food, comes a healthy tank as less food will be left as waste.  Your fish will be happier and healthier too!
