    I was at petsmart yesterday browsing around and I noticed that the Aquaclear filters are no longer labeled Aquaclears. They are now labeled Fluval 20, 30, etc. Interesting as right next to them was the Fluval C series. Could get confusing to some new hobbyists. I wonder why the name change? In the upper left corner of the box they show the old filter picture. Anyone else see them yet?

    I've seen it. The company Hagen probably doesn't want any confusion that the AC is from another company.

    I'm confused by your post as I haven't seen this change and have searched for this change. Would you be able to find a link?

    I noticed the same thing last weekend. But the ones I saw said Fluval and Aquaclear on the box. The Fluval name was bigger though.

    Strange. Hagen makes both Fluval and Aqua Clears so not sure why they would call the AC now Fluvals. Confusing.

    Are you sure you were not looking at the Fluval C series?

    I saw this too at petsmart. I bought old boxes because I went to turn in my upcs to get some free foam (I bought the ac30 ones that I use for intake covers.).

    I seen it too at Petsmart. When I bought my Fluval C4 in July it was on sale for 32 bucks from 54 bucks and Aquaclear was on sale for 37 bucks from 62 bucks as well when I bought my AC70 August. This was a small box type store(Pet supplies plus) with very limited stock for the AC and Fluval HOB filters. Now that I seen the new packaging and AC doing their promotion for filter media it makes sense to me.

    I've noticed this also (work at Petsmart). My theory is that they are beginning to phase out the Aquaclear name. Probably because it is a very generic brand name and sounds too much like Aqua-Tech (the ones you can buy at Walmart). Most people recognize Fluval as one of the nicest brands in fish products, I think not as many recognize Aquaclear.

    Aquaclear filters have been around for 30 yrs plus so I don't think they are worried about being confused with some of the inferior competition lol.
