Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOISE I bought the penguin 350 exactly 1 month ago and while I was sitting down minding my business it started making an INCREDIBLY loud sound. It is coming from where the impeller sits so even though I just cleaned it 3 days ago I cleaned it again and the sound still persists after an hour of me trying to fix it. I went with marineland because I heard the products were better.... I have filters of numerous previous brands on my others tanks that I have never had a single problem with and I have had them for much longer. My other filters are SILENT compared to this one. Not a happy customer. Hoping to get a response so this can be resolved. One month later is not a good time for it to break considering how much they go for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bio Wheel spinning really slow. Bought about 1month ago. Worked fine. Now the bio wheel spinning slow. Replaced filter about 1 week ago. Just replaced again. Seems to be pumping water. Almost seems the water is backing up. Seems to slow when the bio wheel is soaked with water. when I turn unit off and restart, it flows better for a minute, then it slows again almost to the point of stopping

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bio week not spinning I just purchased this filtration on amazon because my old filtration was too large for the opening in the marineland hood that I also just purchased. I set it up like the instructions said, and I can not get the bio wheel to rotate, and no, I do not use sand in my tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very reliable I have had my 350 for about 4 years. In the last few days it has began "chirping". sounds like a baby bird! intermittent every few seconds around the clock.What could be causing this?one wheel stopped rotating a few months ago. Tried cleaning the bearing and it started to rotate again for just a few days.

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.

I was just given a 30 gal tank with a penguin 200 that's been sitting in a garage for 2 years. Do I need to replace the bio wheel? Other than rinsing out the filter, is there anything else I should take apart to clean?

Asked by: Anonymous
We would recommend taking the entire filter apart and cleaning it with hot water and a bit of white vinegar. The bio wheels should be fine, as long as they will spin once you have it installed. If not, then you will need new ones, or are missing the bearings. BREX

I have a penguin 150. Why are there slots for 2 filter cartridges and when would I need two?

Asked by: Karen M
So you can customize your filter to meet your needs. All of our filters have this option. It allows you to replace one cartridge at a time, leaving more beneficial bacteria in the filter and also, if you are having water clarity issues, you have space to add another cartridge or some other form of media to help out temporarily.

What is the water level supposed to be ?

Asked by: Happy
It should be to the bottom of the top frame of the tank, or at the very least an inch or so above the mid-level strainer. BREX

I have a brand new 38gallon Marineland tank and the filter stopped working..I went and got a replacement and same thing, stopped working. What could be the problem?

Asked by: Mosheree
Have you checked either impeller to see if something got caught in it? This is the #1 cause of a filter stopping. Pull our your intake tube, impeller housing and impeller, inspect the parts and clean out the well of the motor at the bottom of the filter box too. BREX

If I extend the lift tube on my 350, will it still pull the water up?

I have the 100 series, I just unplugged it to change the filter, and clean the tube, now it won't work absolutely nothing. What could be wrong?

Asked by: Taylornadine05
Your filter box, the motor and/or the impeller are all dirty/clogged. Take it completely apart to clean it. Call 1-800-322-1266 if you need additional help. BREX
