The Aquaclear 110 Media Basket features a large amount of space for various kinds of media. It can even accommodate a protein skimmer with the shelf removed. It forces water through each chamber with it’s specially designed hole pattern. Water is forced through filter floss to create a crystal clear aquarium that is detritus free. It forces water so well that media can actually tumble in its bag! Can accommodate (2) 100W Hydor heaters to bring them out of the aquarium. One shelf on the unit is removable so you can create a very large chamber for media or macro algae.


  • Filter floss holder, can change floss without removing basket
  • 4 media shelves, one is removable
  • Huge amount of space
  • Easy to change media
  • Can fit (2) Hydor 100W heaters
  • Black front to block media from view of tank
  • Fits Tunze 9001 with shelf removed
  • Made in the USA!

Install Notes:

  • You must turn off the filter before inserting or removing the basket.
  • Filter floss can be changed without turning the filter off but it is recommended to keep detritus out of the aquarium.
  • There is a tab on the base plate that the intake tube rests on. This must be removed with a razor or similar tool for the basket to fit into the filter (see pictures below).

Cutting of the Tab:


Q: Water is flowing over the intake tube, is this normal?

A: Yes! The Media Basket forces water through media, not just up over the top like with the stock setup. It tracks water through a dedicated path which puts needed backpressure on the incoming water. This backpressure allows a certain amount of incoming water into the basket at a time. This amount depends on the type and size of media you choose to put into the basket. The filter has a built in overflow around the intake tube and water spilling over it is nothing to worry about. The filter is still circulating 100% of the water through the basket very quickly.

What Do I Need To Run This Setup?

  • As with any overflow type setup, an Auto-Top-Off system (sold separately) is required (not optional) to maintain the water level inside the overflow box. We recommenced the AUTO Aqua Smart ATO or ATO system with similar sized sensor, to be installed inside the overflow box, to keep your display water level stable from evaporation. Evaporation causes water level inside your overflow box to drop quickly and will start gurgling/bubbling as the intake suck air in, the ATO prevented this from happening.

    AquaClear 110 Surface Skimmer overflow box

    Pampo65 (verified owner)

    Very well constructed, works very well on rimless tanks, not on the tanks with the black rims because the magnets will hit the top of the plastic rim and won’t let the box go all they way up, but you can remove the top 2 magnets to allow the box to go all the way up and close the gap with filter lip easy fix. easy way to improve the box is to move the top magnet strip down.
