    they're owned by the same company, Hagen. Not sure why they'd release a new model of HoB...

    This one seems to be a different design, but yeah, its the same company.

    Wonder if they will be phasing out the aquaclears soon...

    here's a thread with some pictures and info:
    http://www.3reef.com/forums/3reef-ra...dry-86169.html

    so it's actually got a wet/dry compartment. Looks pretty slick. Funny thing is there's no info on fluval's official website, nor is there documentation on the page on the Hagen website that has documentation for every other filter they make.

    Reading some of the specs..interesting...

    Less like an AC than you would thing, as it seems at first glance that it is a standard cartridge HOB, like all the others.

    Some highlights-
    Has an indicator letting you know when the mechanical filter is clogged up.

    Has a driptray and a wetdry setup with ceramic media built in. Not good for co2 I would think, but an interesting move..
    Uses this media- http://www.fosterandsmithaquatics.co...atid=22569&r=2

    Also, uses the same flow control/recirculation system the aquaclears use.

    The three models are rated for 30/50/70 gallons, so they don't have a 20 or 110 gallon model like aquaclear series does. The flow rates are less, which I guess isn't surprising since they're trying to do a wet/dry thing in there.

    It looks pretty cool. I wonder if you can mix and match different media like you can with the aquaclears. Also, the flow rates sound pretty low, but if it has a large enough media compartment it shouldn't be a problem.
