Aquaclear 50 dimensions anyone?
 
I don't have the filter yet but I am filling the tank. How much clearance do I need to allow behind the tank for the AC50 filter assembly? I can't find dimensions anywhere and our office unit is a 30.

I don't mind leaving a little extra, just in case, but I don't want to leave too much either.

Jeff.

I just installed mine last night and had to move the tank(Thank god it wasn't full yet). You will need about 3 inches behind the tank.

Thanks, I've got about 3.5 as is.

I dunno, I have Aquaclears and like them very much and don't feel the need for a canister. Money is better spent on fish, water conditioner, treatments for common ailments, another heater for redundancy, backup plan(s) for a power failure...

I couldn't agree more.
Also, it is much easier to change the media in an aquaclear, vs a canister.
