I wish I had faith that it the case. I've heard a lot of people who have glitchy little issues with the Aquaclear. I cleaned that sucker out again, rearranged the sponge and the biomax, took the extra sponge out, realligned the intake tubes. It ran great (still a little noisy) for a week and now the sponge is rising to the top again.
I've got a big old rubber band around it now to keep the lid on.
So ... no. no more Aquaclears for me. I ordered an Aquean - biggest one they make = for my 90 for extra filtration. Will be very surprised if it doesn't run like a dream.
