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 first...it 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best filtration system that I have ever used. Instructions could be better but if you have a bit of common sense it shouldn't be too hard. I filled up the canister before I installed the valve body. There was air for the first couple days but it has stopped "hiccuping". It is super easy to clean and take care of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Last forever The unit I purchased about five to six years ago looks a little different then the picture for this one, but I purchased a 360 unit, and currently still in use today.Out of all the filters that I have today this unit is a monster that just keeps on working. Requiring less maintained then the filastar xp verieties, never clogs and rearly losses flow.This unit can go for 3 to 4 months without cleaning, though it like all other canister filters is recommended to be maintenanced at least once a month.The only draw back is the priming button on the top of the unit. If these unit were able to self prime I'd have given it five stars instantly.Even with this one fault I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this unit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up There are 2 steps not in the instructions which make startup quick and easy. Like any pumping system, you need to prime the lines. The first extra step on initial setup is to fill the canister with aquarium water (leave 1 ½" free space at top). After putting everything in place pull the inlet pipe partially out of the aquarium and fill it with aquarium water (I stuck the vacuum hose into the pipe and used the hand bulb to prime). It quickly filled. With the system primed, the filter started right up. I did use the prime button to burb out a bit of air left in the inlet line. No trapped air and no rattling.The filter cleaned the tank much faster than an HOB filter. Unlike the HOB there is no noise, and the filter is out of site. Perfect for your aquarium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good, but keep an eye on it at first I bought this yesterday and am excited to have a canister filter. There are a few hiccups with the system though. First,The outlet tube is required to be suction-cupped to the outside of the tank. If you have a background on the tank, that is problematic. Even after cutting the background, the single suction cup does not hold up very well with the weight of the tubing. It constantly comes off. Second, the primer button is really hard to press and the "multiple" times to pump it became 40 or 50 until the water traveled up the outlet tube.Third, the filter began working and everything was great. Upon getting up the next morning, the pump was making rattling sounds. It had stopped sometime during the night. I had to remove the power head and checked the impeller. It looked ok, but when I reassembled the unit and put it back, it again worked, but only for about 30 seconds before the flow stopped and the rattling began again. I took it apart one more time, removed the impeller assy and put it back. I plugged the power head (dry) in and the impeller turned ok. Once again, I put the pump back together and this time the pump has been running for a couple hours. However, I now have to continually check to see if it is still running. (This is where a visible flow indicator would be handy). Now, I am just waiting to see if all the cloudiness will clear up and if the unit will continue to operate. I am a bit afraid to leave the aquarium unattended for any length of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purging This was a frustrating filter at first but as things get going it works great. Air bubbles at first is normal due to the fact that the media has air and it needs to dissipate over time, usually a week as long as your connections are air tight so don’t panic. Let the process happen and you’ll be happy. No need to get new seals or hoses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Problem with start up instructions Granted this is my first canister filter BUT the instructions should be a little more clear. I followed the instructions to the letter but the canister would not prime. Ran all night long still sputtering air and gurgling. Called Marineland today and they said that you should fill the canister with water before you start it. Well that would have been nice to know. I did what the instructions said which was start it dry and push the primer button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier! This was my first canister filter, I've had fish tanks all my life but always used the filters that hang on the side. After discovering this, I could not be happier! It's mess free! I did not have any problems with setup or the use & its been 3 months now. I also did not experience any air bubbles when first plugged in like others mentioned. My tank is always spotless, which I did not have with the side hanging filters, felt like I was always cleaning it before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Patient! This was my first Canister Filter purchase, before this I was using Marineland Penguin Bio-Wheel 350's .....2 of em' They did the job on my long 55 Gallon superbly! So when the money became available I decided it was time to upgrade my filtration. I bought the Magnaflow 360.I followed the instructions very carefully, hooked everything up, primed the filter, then plugged it in. Very quiet operation. I am impressed with it so far........my only problem was that it "belched" air bubbles the first week or so. I called Marineland and the tech support said it was normal and would stop after a week.......It Did.Bottom Line: This product says what it will do, quiet operation, clean water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work I purchased this product a few days ago, excited to finally have a Marineland Canister filter. I've only ever had Fluval or Hydor. Now before I get started, I've been in this hobby for 10 years. I follow instructions to the letter, and I don't skip steps or improvise. I made sure everything was installed correctly, and the arrows were aligned in the baskets, as well as the IN and OUT tubing was going to the right places. So priming it was a pretty big nuisance. I pressed the priming button probably a total of 30 to 40 times. There were no kinks or twists in either of the lines, either. No leaks, or anything. And slowly, ever so slowly, the canister filled with water. Finally started priming. As the instructions mention, you can "plug in the filter" once water "starts going in and back up to the tank". So, I did exactly that. Water started going up one of the tubes (to the outlet), and I plug it in. I hear this awful, loud chattering sound, and a plethora of bubbles come out of the outlet. I unplug it thinking something was wrong. I inspect the canister, checking the impeller making sure it was on correctly. Yep, it was. Checked to make sure the baskets were aligned and oriented properly (making sure the arrows were pointing to the arrows). Going over the instructions, making sure it was assembled right. And yep! Everything was correct. Fill the canister with a little tank water to assist it in priming. Get the tubing back on (which can also be a pain, as the "key" has to be aligned perfect), and plug it in. This time, it makes a dull humming noise and thousands of tiny bubbles come out of the outlet tube and into my tank, stressing my fish and making it cloudy. After 2-3 minutes, it failed to prime. So...I double check everything again. The outlet tube went to the outlet. Inlet tube went to the intake. (Yes, I checked the "OUT" and "IN" markings on the top of the canister and made sure the right tubes went to the right parts). I even checked the baskets to make sure there was nothing preventing water flow and making sure the holes all aligned properly. Everything was EXACTLY how the instructions mentioned it to be done. Pluged it in a third time... aaandddd not even a peep from the canister. No sounds, nothing. Dead. And it wasn't the outlet, since it was plugged into a high quality surge protected outlet and everything else plugged into it was working. Even tried plugging it into another outlet that I knew worked, and it was dead. Spent a good 2 hours of my time trying to get this thing to work and it failed. Returned to store, don't have time to email customer support, to wait a few days to get a part that "might" fix the issue. You know what's easier? Driving 10 minutes to the store from where I purchased it, getting my money back. And trying that other company's filter. I think it rhymed with Luval? Their canister primed and was running in seconds. Won't be purchasing filters from Marineland. Look at all the reviews from websites other than Marineland. Mostly 1 to 2 star reviews. Very "Exceptional" Marineland.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from C-360 This filter offers generous media baskets. The motor/impeller assembly is reasonably robust. Mine had great flow.The problem was the manifold block on top would begin leaking air into the intake and flood the tank with microbubble causing all my corals to retract and pout. Customer service was excellent on getting the block replaced but it happened repeatedly.This thing can test your religion after a media change too. Getting the seals to seat properly so you don't have water running down the side when you power it back on was frustrating. It often required several attempts. I had been huge Marineland fan up until then. I still use the Magnum HOT filters on a number of my tanks to this day. It was an excellent design. My biggest complaint is that the Magnum Series was discontinued for the C Series filters. Mind boggling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magniflow 360 I just got this yesterday for a replacement from the marineland c series 530 canister! Boy what a difference! The set up was so easy and its so quiet! I had the worst luck with the 530 which was horrible! The lid was so hard to remove! You had to pry it with butter knifes or screwdrivers! It would take me up to 2 + hours to do maintenance on it with removing the lid. It would leak, the impeller shaft broke when I removed it and then the Primer button stopped. I had to suck the water through the valve to make it work! I was at my final straw at only 3 months of run time. Well I called marineland for possible replacement parts so that I could patch it up but they told me that they would just send me a new one! Of course I refused to get the same one so i decided to down grade. I know I was losing like 30 or 40 bucks but for me not dealing with the headache its an up grade! Even better I got it in a matter of days! THANKS MARINELAND! THANKS TO THE CUSTOMER SERVICE REP SARA AS WELL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ML makes great filters For years I have been using ML Magniflow filters from back in the 1980's with the 300 style cartridge filter to the 360 canisters which I use today. I have a Clear for Life 55g show with 2 of these bad boys on it. Also an internal cartridge filter.Water is crystal clear all the time. I alternate canister cleaning every 3 months. Load them down with as much carbon and purigen and matrix they will hold plus new bottom filter and micro pads at the top. Also I cant forget the ceramic rings I never change them leave those as thy are. Great filters. I have a drip system with a drain on this tank the replaces ~ 260g/month so these are not as dirty as I have had in the past. I could get away with rotating cleaning every six months if I wanted. They do a wonderful job.

What is the best way to hook up a 360 MF with the tubes in a corner flow 60 gallin

Asked by: Shelleyfish
It is an easy transition to vinyl tubing from PVC using a barbed hose fitting available at any plumbing supply place or Home Depot or Lowes. They make Them in all sizes so easy to find. I would suggest metal hose clamps as well, to be safe. You will need to remove the entire drain pipe assembly from the cornerflo unit and just leave the open bulkhead at the bottom for the drain. The cornerflo compartment will in essence act as a sump, and the water level there will fluctuate with evaporation, etc. I would maintain at least 10 inches or so of water in there. The return can be plumbed using barbed hose connections and all the return plumbing we provide with the overflow. BREX

Why is my my water is cloudy and I still have air bubbles I can't get that to go away

Asked by: Green2400
The cloudy water can be due to any number of possible issues such as new tank syndrome, overstocking, overfeeding, heterotrophic bacteria, etc. The air bubbles take a couple of days to purge, and if they don't go away, then make sure you pushed the tubing all the way onto the intake tube up to the top ridge. The C clamp should be clamped tightly at the base of that ridge. BREX

Remove the impeller from the motorhead, and clean it well with white vinegar and hot water. With a q tip or swab and vinegar be sure to clean all the way up inside the little reservoir that holds the impeller. Also, take a q tip to clean out the various ports on the valve block, fill the tank to the top as well as the filter system. Call 1-800-322-1266 if you need more help. BREX

Sorry Bill, but we cannot advise you to take apart the primer for safety, legal and warranty reasons. We do not provide blueprints either as that is considered proprietary. Place one hand over your other hand, on top of the button, and push down with both of them. If this does not work, then yes you would need a new filter. This one has a 3 year warranty. BREX

I own two canisters. I recently put my second in action. For 48 hours I am having an issue with mirco bubbles and cannot figure where the aeration is occurring. Any recommendations. Thank You

Asked by: Lightning
Your filter has to purge air out of it on initial setup so it is not unusual to have microbubbles for the first 2-3 days. However, if it doesn't go away, make sure your intake vinyl tubing is pushed all the way onto the intake tube. It should line up right below the highest "ridge" on the intake tube, and your clamp should be in position right at that spot. Please call 1-800-322-1266 if you need more help. BREX

Asked by: davidl
Most likely you either do not have the trays lined up correctly with the arrows, or the media in one or more of them is up too high, interfering with leveling the trays out. When installing the trays, you should line the arrow on the tray up with the arrow on the canister body, then with both hands, slide the tray back and forth until you feel it "click" into place. BREX

Sorry to hear this, JOE1888! This is usually a motorhead o ring issue. If the filter is two years old, it is due a new o ring as they are typically replaced between 1 and 2 years. Also, whenever you maintain the filter, be sure to rub a thin smear of silicone lubricant on all o rings. BREX

What is normal maintenance, do I need extra filters, carbon, or what, thinking of 220 or 360 model for 32 gal tank. Fresh water, gold fish, one small KOI

Asked by: John 46
Normal maintenance is to replace carbon monthly and rinse out the polishing cloth. Considering the types of fish you are keeping, you may need to replace the polishing cloth instead, as they produce a lot of waste. If they are small, you might get buy with every 6-8 weeks initially. Bio balls, ceramic rings, and foam should just be rinsed, not replaced. BREX

Oh no, sorry to hear that! You lift the top lever of the valve block, then the bottom one. Turn the bottom one 180 degrees and make sure you lock it in place before removing the valve block from the canister. BREX

I believe I have the 360 with a 55 gal turtle tank. I'm looking at buying a 120 gallon tank to replace it. Should I buy the C530 in order to handle the extra gallons or can the 360 handle the extra water if I clean my canister and tank more frequently?

Asked by: emma12345
You definitely need either two 360s or one 530. I like two filters because they are smaller, not as heavy, and you always have one going while you maintain the other one, or in case one breaks at some point. The 530 weighs 27 lbs empty and around 75 lbs filled! BREX

How much is it for the marineland c-530?

Asked by: Chino1974
We do not sell directly, so that would depend on the store or online vendor that you buy through. It typically runs $150-$200. BREX

My c160 is leaking like a sieve from the main motor head connection with the canister body. Help!?

Asked by: Johnnylove82
This may be due the large o ring around the motorhead if it is old or to the o rings found on the ports of the valve block. O rings should be replaced as part of normal maintenance, every 1-2 years. Also, apply a thin smear of silicone lubricant to the o ring after every maintenance to keep it in good working order. BREX

we have a brand new 160 and 360 and they both can take in water though the strainer but they fail to expel the water though the diffuser so therefore they over flow and leak every where causing a huge mess. how do we get both tubes to flow equally?

Asked by: noahrosetta
Sounds like you did not install the o rings onto the two motorheads. The large o ring comes in a clear bag with a neon instruction card attached to it. If you do not install these, the filters will not hold the pressure, and will leak. BREX

Is there a lift / intake tube extension available for the C-220?

Asked by: DJ Saberniak Jr
No, it comes with an intake tube that is long enough for any tank it is recommended for, up to a 55 gallon tank. BREX

Can this filter be used for yellow bellied turtles?

Asked by: Mom of boys
Yes, although when you prime it, the water must be near the top of the tank. I typically keep the water within 3 inches of the top for my Eastern Painted Turtle, but if yours is not that high, then prime the filter, and drain some water back out to the level you prefer to keep it at. The filter does an excellent job of keeping a turtle tank clean and clear, especially when combined with small, partial water changes. BREX

I need to buy new hoses for my filter. I’m getting a bigger fish tank and my old hoses will not reach the top of my new tank

Asked by: SueSue
Here is a link to some of the parts for your filter, including the tubing: http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-parts/Filtration-Products-and-Skimmers/C-Series-Canister-Parts.aspx. You can also buy vinyl tubing at DIY stores, by the foot. BREX

I just installed a C360 on my 54 corner aquarium and it seems to be blowing a lot of bubbles. There are no apparent leaks. What should I do?

Asked by: Tom1000
The filter you included the link for is not a C360, it is a Magniflow 360 and there are definite differences. Both will purge air for a few days, and there will be microbubbles while this is occurring, but after a few days, you should check to ensure that the vinyl tube is pushed all the way up over the barbs and to the ridge on the intake tube. The c clamp should be installed right at the base of the ridge, tight enough to prevent air from being pulled into the filter. BREX

I would like to purchase a Magniflow filter for my new 30XH tank (24" x 12" x 24"). The tank will be planted with hornwort in Seachem Fourite Sand substrate. Stock will be topminnows, darters and pygmy sunfish. Should I purchase the 160 or 220?

Asked by: DJ Saberniak Jr
We would recommend the 220 to ensure you have enough filtration as you would be maxing out the 160 for sure. BREX
