(I have one AC70 now filled completely with Seachem Matrix/De*Nitrate bio-media mix using an AC20 impeller for slow flow).
Yeah, I agree. I recently purchased one strictly as a back up in case my canister ever fails. I can grab the biological media out of the canister and throw it in the customizable tray in the Aquaclear.
