Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quite I'm setting up my small 30 gallon tank and needed a canister filter. I looked at many top brands and picked the Marineland 160. The reasons I picked the 160 was quality, price, warranty, and when I got it setup and running it was super quite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tubing Putting this thing together is simple except for the tubing impossible to straighten out it is so hard the only way I can get the tubing to stay connected to the canister is to set the canister on the floor in front of the stand the stand is 15 1/2"deep and it's 55" from floor to top of aquarium I hooked the tubing up as directed and the tubing is so stiff that it lifts the canister up in the air fluval here I cone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet. I bought the 360 for my 55 three weeks ago and I'm very pleased with this unit. The air cleared out in about 5 days and is doing a great job of keeping the tank clean and clear. I've eliminated 2 hob's, the 280 and 350 Bio-wheels but kept the eheim 2213 can going. I'd suggest being patient, all good things are worth waiting for, and this is definately one of them. Now if I can just find a spraybar, it will be complete, the way I'd like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st canister filter for my sons turtle.... The tank was always an issue---turtles are very messy and produce a number of serious bacterial problems in the water!!! We used HOB types and missed cleaning one week and the old boy almost didn't make it.. I did hours of research online----save yourself the effort and purchase this brand of canister filter!!! We have the 220 and it rocks!! I was sooo nervous putting the tank in his room---if it leaks when the family is out etc etc?? I checked it 20x a day!!!! Just because i figured, heck anything at this great price and sets up this easy must be toooo good to be true!!! The unit is running after a cpl weeks and man is it AWESOME..Very Very quiet with crystal clear water.. The appearance of the canister is also very professional..if this is your 1st canister set up---TAKE YOUR TIME and read the directions several times took me 2 hours but that was on purpose because i made sure i did the set up xactly as the directions said and triple checked everything..not sure why people post--OMG it took longer than the directions say!!! It's not a race so educate yourself as you assemble the unit and learn how it wrks!!!!! I called customer line with several questions--like i said, had severe worries about it spilling all over his room...The staff was great and spent as much time as i needed to answer every question!!! A huge bonus!!!! Im super dad again and the turtle is living like a rock star...i would encourage any peeps to buy this awsome product!

I have a MagniFlow 360 that has been operational for 3 months now,does a great job. I cleaned the filter and replaced the course/fine pads 2 days ago, had a few bubbles on start up. tonight it sounds like its sucking air, much bubble output. Any ideas?

Asked by: Jimbo2
You may want to call our Care Team for some troubleshooting, but the first things that come to mind is to check the tubing where it connects to the valve block as well as the intake tube. It may have loosened up when you were moving it around. The c clamps on the intake tube in particular can cause air to be pulled in if they are not quite tight enough. One other thing would be did you put any silicone lube on the motorhead o ring? If not, you should do that every time to ensure a tight seal. The Care Team is at 1-800-322-1266. BREX

What is the difference between the c-series and the magniflow canister filter? Did they fix the leaking problems on the c-series?

Asked by: Mendozj015
There are several differences. The valve block is a major one. Also, the need for gaskets on the trays was removed. The impeller on the 360 was improved. The o ring is no longer installed on the production line, it comes in a sealed back with silicone on it, and you install it while setting up the filter. There are no leaking issues with the Magniflows. BREX

Do I have the C-220 or C-360? We have two of these canister filters and need a new intake and outtake. I can't remember which canisters we have and there is not a lot of information on the canister itself. How can tell which ones we own? Thank you.

Asked by: AmberIowa
Well, first, the C Series has a valve block that is black and gray. The Magniflows are red, black, and gray. That is an important distinction. Depending on the answer, each filter has a sticker on it with different types of information. Look for a code such as T2 or T3, and call 1-800-322-1266. BREX

I just purchased a magnaflow 360 yesterday. Its spewingg out alot of air and i can actually see the water going into the intake tube at the back of my tank. I have had a canister filter for about 3 years and never have been able to see the water going in

Asked by: Jdigz
Sounds like your tubing is probably too long or your water level is too low. Tubing should be trimmed down to only a 2" slack so it makes a relatively straight line from the top of the motorhead to the top of the tank. The water level should be to the top of the tank. Please call 1-800-322-1266 if you find you need more help. BREX

How do you clean the inside of a Marineland C360 cannister filter cover? I have cleaned everything else, hoses, impeller, filters, etc. I have gunk coming out of my outlet.

Asked by: kentxan
You can use a q tip or swab. Be sure to clean out the four ports of the valve block. After using the swab, soak the valve block in a distilled vinegar solution for about 10 minutes, then run water through it thoroughly. BREX

I purchased a 160 filter about 4 months ago. It stopped pumping. The motor spins the impeller but there is a rattling sound and no flow. I checked the impeller and the magnetic area is very rough. All the ports are clean. Any thoughts?

Asked by: craiglrpc
Take a swab and white vinegar and clean up inside the motorhead, in the little area the impeller resides in. You may have hard water issues or some type of build up. Also, if you have sand, it may have worn grooves. Please call us if you need additional help, 1-800-322-1266. BREX
