Rated 5 out of 5 by from 360 Magniflow Hooked up the Magniflow 360 one week ago for a 55 gal freshwater tank. has kept the tank very clean. Biological is establishing, so water changes are necessary for ammonia level control. Extremely quiet! and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, one of the best filters I ever purchased I purchased a Marineland C160 filter about three weeks to replaced a Fluval 204. So far the filter has been functioning great. I gave up on Fluval! I had 2 Fluval filters gone bad on me in the last three years. The price I paid for my Marineland C160 is half of the Fluval 204. I really like how it functions and its extremely quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great filter, but it could be much better! Easy to set up and easy to maintain I really like my Magniflow C-220. The only major issue I have is that the intake and exhaust pipes are WAY too short. Marineland should offer a custom pipe kit like we used to be able to get with the Magnum series. The intake is too short to get far enough down in a deep tank and the outlet is so shallow is causes massive splashing everywhere. Come on Marineland, would a couple of plastic extensions be too difficult to fix a majorly annoying problem with an otherwise superb filter system?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor instructions We bought a C360 for our new 75 gallon tank. This is our first canister type filter. We followed the quick start instructions to the letter. Filled the tank with water, primed until we heard flow, turned it on, and water spewed everywhere, all over our living room. Should I mention we just installed new flooring in the living room? After some investigating, we found a video that mentions a gasket that is NOT mentioned anywhere in the quick start guide. Terrible terrible oversight by whoever wrote that guide. This is an incredibly important step that they left out of the instructions! Looking forward to the water damage on our new floor. It better work when we start it up again tomorrow, this time with the unmentioned gasket in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome filter! I bought the 360 from Petsmart for my 55 gallon because i wanted more filtration but the only problem is that i'm having trouble finding replacement filters like the carbon bags, water polishing filter, and the filter foam pad. Could you please leave links to help me?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks After Just 2 Weeks Bought the 22o canister and after 2 weeks it started leaking. Checked all the fittings and it still leaked. Changed all the seals and it still leaks. The top of the canister lid fills up with water. It has swollen the shelf, sides and door of my stand and the carpet underneath has gotten wet before I noticed it. I have been fighting leaks for a week now. Recently emailed the company. Hope to be able to update this review with a good outcome.

how to change the filter system?

Asked by: michelthe1
You need to lock the valve block, unplug the unit, and wait about 10-20 seconds for water to stop flowing. Remove the valve block and leave it at the tank, dangling from the tubing. Carry the filter to where you wish to maintain it, then remove the motorhead by lifting the clamps. Once it is opened, be sure to remove each tray, one at a time and place them to the side. Dump the old water out. Rinse the bio balls and ceramic rings as well as the foam. Replace the carbon and polishing cloth. When placing the trays back in, line them up as they were before, starting with the foam on the bottom. Slide each tray back and forth until you feel it line up and sit in place. There are arrows on the trays and an arrow on one side of the canister vessel to help you line them up. Fill with water once all trays are back in. Call 1-800-322-1266 if you need additional help.

I'm trying to prime my 160 magniflow but the prime button stays down. I've tried to pull it up but it's too hard. How does it work. I have read about others having the same problem. Please advise...

Asked by: Joema
When this happens it usually means there is built up pressure inside the filter. To loosen that, you can either push down on the button with both hands at the same time, or use the lift handles. Slowly pull them up and very, very gently bring them a little past their stopping point. You want to be careful to not break them, but at the same time use them to release the pressure. BREX

We purchased our 360 on July 6th from the local pet store, it's been slowing down and working intermittently since replacing the filter media according the the instructions. There's no obvious reason for our issue. Wondering on some trouble shooting?

Asked by: Cheryl86
Sorry to hear this is happening! You also need to pull out the impeller and inspect it for algae, slime, hair-like strands, etc. While it is out, swab out the inside of the motorhead with a q tip and white vinegar. Also check the valve block ports to make sure they are not blocked by some sort of debris or gunk. Q tips are great for this as well. And last, and least likely, would be the tubing. Make sure they are not blocked somehow. If you continue to have issues, just call our Care Team at 1-800-322-1266. BREX

Is the small one Ok for 10 gal?

Asked by: GreyhoundRacer
Probably not, it would really blow some water around, and be too strong for that size tank. You can adjust the flow rate and the direction a little bit with the outlet diffuser, but probably not enough. BREX

There are two rubber O-rings (the size of the uplift pipes in the filter baskets) left after I disassembled the filter completely.  Where do they go in the stack?  They are not shown in any of the product manuals or setup guides.

Asked by: ButchAZ
The Magniflow does not have gaskets on the trays, but there are o rings on the bottom ports of the valve block and of course the big one on the motorhead. The ones on the valve block, were small, about the diameter of a dime. Our old canister, the C Series had gaskets on the tray baskets. In case you may want to call in and talk to someone: 1-800-322-1266. BREX

How often should the charcoal pad be replaced 

Asked by: Helps
Typically, you always want to replace carbon at least every four weeks. This filter does not come with a carbon pad, it has mesh bags of carbon. If you are referring to the foam block, that would not be replaced unless it tears or loses its springiness. BREX
