Hi Galaxy Hunter,

A few weeks ago I decided to follow your example and get an HOV filter. I got the AquaClear 70 (instead of the BioWheel) becuase it needs less clearance on the top.
I've been using it for a few weeks and the results are fantastic: very clean water and a bit less noisy than the stock filter.

I had to make some cuts in the lid using a rotary tool, but the result looks quite nice as the cuts are hidden from the outside.

These days I got a 75g tank, so I took the Fluval Accent apart to clean it up and fix a small leak using silicone. My daughter's Goldfish will go into the Accent.

Some pictures:

How has this tank been working with this new setup? I have the Fluval Accent and the filtration is horrible. Trying to look at other options now.

Working great - Mine has the BioWheel filter and the other one here has the AquaClear. Less modification to hood with the AquaClear and is a great filter. Best of luck to you and lesson learned for all of us. "Old School Rules"

Working great here too. The stock filter was so bad, the Aquaclear transformed this nightmare tank into an enjoyable hobby :)
