NIB Adjustable Flow HOB Perfect For Bettas

I have four AquaTop PFE-1 HOB filters for sale. These are still in the unopened box from TruAqua. I have used this filter on 2.5 and 5.5 aquariums. They have very good flow-control and can be turned way back to almost no flow if that's what you wish. I love these filters and can't recommend them highly enough. If you filter each section of a divided these are perfect.

With HM with excessive finnage I start with the lowest setting and gradually increase until the Betta has gained strength to handle more current.

One filter for $15.00 or four filters for $55.00. Free Priority shipping. Please pay as "Goods."

PFE-1 Hang-on Filter
AquaTop’s PFE-1 Power Filter comes equipped with all the necessary filter media to ensure superior filtration: Mechanical, Chemical & Biological. The PFE-1 utilizes a filtration chamber system with replaceable filter sponge cartridges enhanced with AquaTop’s Activated Carbon and Biological Media Trays with maximum surface-area for your beneficial bacteria to colonize and help keep clean water. The PFE-1’s innovative and flexible design is perfect to help you eradicate and control free-floating debris and harmful waste from the aquarium in both freshwater and saltwater.

Capable of Filtering up to 15 Gallon Aquariums
Mechanical, Chemical and Biological Filtration Included
Extremely Quiet
Large Filtration Media Chamber
Suitable for both Freshwater and Saltwater

Do these filters auto-start? Lack of auto-start is one of reason I'm thinking of replacing the filter on my smaller tank. I really hate needing to mess with the filter every time I do a water change.

Do you think it would work on a ten gallon? Or is it too small? I may get one anyway, my 2.5 is still empty.

They will restart as long as the water doesn't evaporate below a certain level. Don't know if that makes sense. I don't have to refill the chamber when I do water changes and they start back up unless the water level the chamber completely empties.

They should work on a 10 and they definitely work on my 2.5....much better than the Finnex which was too strong until I used a sponge on the intake.

I do have a PFE-3 that's NIB.
