Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy, Stopped Working Have had a few months. A month in we started having problems with it. We had to take it apart and wash it and adjust it on a weekly basis. Now it's making a horrible noise. I'm up to fixing it daily. Why have a product that has to be adjusted on a daily basis?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisey Bought this about 2 mos ago and it has been noisey all the time - I've tried to buy another filter ( canister ) but the fish guy says I've got the best , sometimes I can move the propeller housing up and down and get it to stop but most of the time it's very noisey and my oscar absolutely hates it and gets annoyed by the constant noise

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! Ive had a 200 for three years and it came used at that! The other day our electric went out for 10 seconds and then NOTHING! Tried what "I" knew and to no avail. I wrote in to you guys and didnt know how to get to the impeller. ORDERED a new one online and my husband with a hair knotted impeller. So thanks for your great help and in such a timely manner. Everything is working again perfectly. I just didnt know how to get to that impeller. Thanks so much again. I have never had a problem with this filter and it is quiet and does the job. I just didnt do my part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have Multiples I currently am running a Penguin 100 and two Penguin 350's on two different tanks, and I must say I absolutely love them. They do a great job at keeping my water sparkling clean, and clear. Very low maintenance, very sleek looking, and very quiet. I recommend these filters to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SECOND CHANCE Well I've only had my penguin 200 for a little under two months and the pump burned out. Talked to the warranty department and they took care off me without any problems and said they will swap the old one out as long as I send the bad one back. filter works great when it works and very pleased how my situation was handled

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loud I have a penguin 350 that I bought from a friend for my 38g. It was making a lot of noise that sounded like it was coming from the impeller so I replaced the impeller, impeller housing and the intake tube hoping all that would help and it did. The filter was almost completely silent for about 5 hours, then it started making the noise again. I don't know if it's just the filter going bad or if I got a bad part but the filter isn't very old. Maybe 6 months. Disappointing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wheel not working I have had my system for two months and the wheel won't spin. A lot of money spent for a short life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penguin 200 I watched many utube videos about hob filters. Though the penguin models were not the most highly recommended I liked the bio wheel. Very happy with my 200 and I don't care what anyone says. That spinning bio wheel is just cool. The penguin works very well paired with my 220 canister filter also from marineland on my 55. Keep up the good work

I have a 38Gal Marineland bow front tank kit that came with the Penguin 200. I would like to increase filtration. What filter would you recommend or add, and is it necessary or good idea?

Asked by: JTInc
The more filtration, the better in most cases, but it is not exactly necessary, per se. That particular tank has a center brace, which means any filter you decide to use cannot be longer than 14". We do not have a larger power filter that will fit that space. You could go with a canister filter such as the Magniflow 220. BREX

Hi! I have a 10 gallon tank that is currently dealing with a power outage. The filter and biowheel stopped and dried out for 3 days now. Should I get a new biowheel once the power starts up again? I'm worried about starting from scratch.

Asked by: arianaa94
No, just do small partial water changes of the tank each day, like around a gallon or two. This will keep providing fresh oxygen to the tank and keep the biological filter alive until you have power again. Feed the fish very, very little, once a day. Float the bio wheel if you want to, but it will re-develop bacteria once it is going again. BREX

What is this maximum edge thickness the 200gph filter will hang off of. We are planning to use a plastic tub and the edges are thick so would it be able to fit and hang off of it?

Asked by: just1question
The area under the spillway of the filter is approximately 2.5" wide. BREX

I recently bought a used aquarium with a CBW-1 system. it has been used with fresh and salt water previously. should I consider replacing the bio-wheel before I start it?

Asked by: JScott
Hi JScott. We're not familiar with that system. If the bio-wheels are intact and there is no history of disease in the tanks it was used in there is no reason to replace it though.

My last bio whell system have a spray bar for bio wheel. I just bought a new aquarium and have the penguin 200 but don't see a spray bar,Also how do you adjust flow rate?

Asked by: Paul62
The Penguin line does not come with spray bars, the Emperor 400 is the only one that does. You can close off the mid-level strainer to adjust it somewhat, but it will not reduce it greatly. BREX

Hi! I have a brand new Marineland 29 gallon tank that has been set up for about a week and a half. Everything was working fine but all of a sudden the bio-wheel will not turn. It hasn't even been 12 days. Help!

Asked by: NewFishMom
Make sure your water level is to the top of the tank and has not evaporated down. Lift the intake tube and re-seat it in case some debris has become lodged in it or in the impeller, and as a last resort, remove the intake tube, impeller housing and impeller, in case something got pulled in and is caught, reducing the flow rate of the filter. Please call us with questions or if you cannot resolve this. 1-800-322-1266. BREX

On this unit, can I add an additional media container? My Marineland filter has one and I need to replace it. Its about 10 years old and the impeller assembly is shot.

Asked by: shankshot9
The Penguin 100 does not take a media container, no. It has room for two cartridges. Only the Penguins 200 and 350 take the media containers. BREX

Just got the penguin 200 won't suck water running and bubbling in the top of filter

Asked by: Joel B
Make sure your water level in the tank is all the way up to the top. Also, pull the intake tube and impeller housing out then re-seat them back into the filter. BREX
