I found a pictures of this thing when I bought a new Eheim cannister filter. Look's like something you hang on the glass of the tank, and the filter is on the outside so you only have a small in/out part of the filter visibel from the tank. I visited eheim.com, but the pictures don't show the filter mountet on the tank.

I was thinking this could be great for the iron aquascape contest, since it will be hell to hide a small internal filter, and every cannister filter I know about is way way to big. So, does anybody know anything about this thing, and if so, can you recommend it?

There are smaller hang on back (HOB) filters available than the liberty. From what I hear the liberty uses those skeleton/framed media inserts that are hard to replace with DIY media. Personally I love my AquaClear Mini, using it on a 2.5 gal at the moment. Aquaclear filters are nice because you can stock them with your own media and they hold a lot more than the skeleton media ones. But if you keep a lean tank without overdoing it with fish load and food, the azoo palm filter is probably a perfect choice for a 10 gallon or smaller.

I hear the azoo palm filter is quite a bit quiter than the aquaclear mini's as well. I have an AC mini on my 5g, and it does a nice job, but it is a little on the noisy side.
