Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow What a Difference I had an aquarium when I was a teenager, and even with several plant-eating fish and a north facing window, algae was always out of control. We bought our first Penguin filter a year ago as part of a kit that was on sale for 50% because of the price and complete kit, and we were happy to find what a difference the biowheel makes in overall aquarium cleanliness. No more out of control algae. There was a little, but nothing a scrubber and a low dose of algaecide didn't take care of. Water clarity is crystal. Our fish look very happy, and so do we.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, reliable, and customizable. I started being deployed for combat frequently at high tempo, so I gave away my fish and let my parents keep my tank and equipment until I was ready. My old 20H setup sat empty in my Dad's garage (in Iowa) for TEN YEARS. I just got all that stuff back and set it up to see what I need to purchase. I cleaned the Penguin Power Filter housing, held the pump section under running sink water, and nudged the turbine with a chopstick to get it moving again. The pump turned on and everything works like new!RELIABLE... mine was used with heavy load tank for two years, sat in the elements for ten years, and is now being used again. It still functions great after a decade!CUSTOMIZABLE... there is space in between the filter and Biowheel to put other media such as SeaChem Purigen bag or CNZ ceramic rings.WORKS WELL AS A SCIMMER... I use both my Penguin filter system and an AAP Hydro Sponge filter in my tank with excellent results.LOUD (and QUIET)... the "waterfall" is super loud; however, if you get the water outlet at or below water level, it is SUPER QUIET! I added an extension to the outflow "ramp" in order to achieve quietness, (again, easily customizable). If you keep the waterfall the way it is, the Penguin agitates the surface and oxygenates your water very well.COST... replacement parts can be very expensive! If you shop around, you can find filters for a cheap price; but, the biowheel costs almost as much as a new entire unit! I change the filter cartridge monthly, and am going to continue using the original Biowheel.For a Hang-On-Back power filter, I definately recommend the Penguin series! I will purchase again for sure! I love how well it works as a scimmer, and how customizable it is. It is super loud... unless you customize or modify it for your needs (or keep your water level topped off in the tank).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great once you throw out the BIO-Wheel I have a 20 gallon tank that I bought for some gold fish. Its located in my wife's office in our home. She enjoys the soothing sounds it makes and watching the goldfish while she works.I got a BIO-Wheel 150 for the tank when I first set it up and had similar problems as other reviewers about it running. I even purchased another pump and set that up while I figured out what was wrong.What I found was that fibers which slough off from the BIO-Wheel wrap around the shaft of the impeller that pulls water up and thru the filter. Its a tiny shaft and doesn't take many fibers to slow the impeller down or make it stop completely. I've discarded the BIO-Wheel. I do use an air stone and will be adding an under gravel filter next time I tear the tank down for a thorough cleaning.Except for that issue I like the performance of the filter. I change the filter cartridge once a month and change 2/3 to 3/4 of the water once a week. Goldfish are messy fish but also quite hardy so they take it well.Hope that this is useful information to other users of this product.

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.

Seems to be pumping water. Almost seems the water is backing up.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Great filter I bought the Marineland Penquin 150 Power Filter about a month ago. Loved it from the start! Nice and quiet motor, if the water level gets low enough the water flow can be somewhat loud but it doesn't bother me. Sounds like a tiny waterfall which fine. The only complaint I have with this product, is the lack of directions. I have had a few questions regarding the filter and the directions are very limited.

 I have a bio wheel 200. The wheel is terribly noisy due to high speed from being new. I have gently twisted the wheel to improve but did not help much. I have a second smaller filter can I turn off the bio wheel at night and run the quiet one? 

Asked by: Mason305
Just take the bio wheel out and let it float in the tank for a day or two. Also, make sure the bearings are inserted properly. You can also "grease" them with a thin smear of silicone lubricant. Do not turn the filter off at night, no. BREX

Asked by: sean24
Okay, make sure the water level is all the way to the top of the tank. Fill the filter with water as well. Pull out the intake tube, impeller housing and impeller. Inspect the impeller for damage, build up, gunk, etc. (you didn't state whether it is new or older). If it appears dirty, clean it and clean out the entire filter box. If it is new, and impeller is okay, put everything back together again and re-install the filter. If you cannot get it up and running, call 1-800-322-1266. BREX

I bought a tank and it came with the penguin 200 filter. I don’t know how long the previous owner had it but it seems to not keep the water clean. Would you suggest buying a new one? 

Asked by: Newbie14
No, not if it is running. It may need to be cleaned well if it has a lot of buildup, but it is fine if it is running. New tanks take a while to establish (approximately 6 months), and cloudy water is normal initially. It typically clears up after the first few weeks, but it totally depends on how fast you add fish, how much you feed, and how often you vacuum and perform partial water changes. A clean tank is not completely due to the capability of the filter, the filter simply reduces maintenance for you. Depending on the size of the tank, you should vacuum and change 30% of the water at least twice a month, more often if the tank is heavily stocked or has big fish. If the tank was just set up, you may have a bacterial bloom or an ammonia spike and should add Aquarium Bacteria to the tank. Call 1-800-322-1266 for more help. BREX

I bought and installed the penguin power filter 4 days ago. It's made an on and off again horrible grinding sound. Please help.

Asked by: Adrienne
Do you have sand in the aquarium? If so, this is the issue. Whenever using sand with any HOB filter, you need to place filter floss in the strainer or slide a foam accessory over it to prevent the sand from getting in and destroying the impeller. If you do not have sand in the tank, remove the intake tube, impeller housing, and impeller. Check for any grit from the gravel or carbon dust in the motor or on the impeller. Also, check and make sure the impeller is not damaged, warped, or inserted too far up into the intake tube. Call for more help if necessary - 1-800-322-1266. BREX

Asked by: Vigomateu
Did you try cleaning the impeller and motor of the 75? If this is all it needs, you can run the two filters simultaneously for a couple of weeks. If the 75 is clean but dead, then you can float the bio wheel if it isn't too grungy. BREX

How do you adjust the mid-level strainer? Is that the gray fan-like thing in the middle? Can you give more detail regarding that? There isn't any instructions or details about it in the pamphlet. Thanks!

Asked by: plii
Yes, that would be the mid-level strainer. If you leave it open it increases your flow rate, closing it reduces the flow slightly, and prevents you from pulling water from the middle of the tank. BREX

The power filter does not generate bubbles, unless the water level in the tank is below the filter's spillway. If so, raise the water level. The only way to adjust the flow is to close the mid-level strainer (gray lever). BREX

Clean out the filter box as well, especially the part the impellers sit in and make your water level in the tank is at the top of the tank. Check the purple bio wheel bearings to make sure they are in properly, clean them, and rub a tiny smear of silicone lubricant on them. If the bio wheels are warped, you may need to replace them. BREX

A friend gave me a Penguin200 w an established Biowheel for a 27 gal tank. It creates huge current, looks like the 200 is made for much larger tanks. Thinking about switching to 150, but can i use 200 biowheel or would i have to start over?

Asked by: Audlindal
The 200 model is for tanks 20-40 gallons in size, so should be fine for your tank unless you have some pretty small, delicate fish. You would need a different bio wheel for the 150 and would not be able to use the one with the 200, unfortunately. BREX

I have a 100B on my 5G hex tank. It's great, keeps our water clean and I finally got my tank to cycle. However, the outflow is too turbulent, even with a full tank. Can I adjust it or modify it in some way?

Asked by: FireworksMom
Closing the mid-level strainer off may help some, but ideally, you should place some filter floss inside the strainer. This will slow it down or you can put a second cartridge in the filter which will provide more filtration and slow it down. Another option would be to add some other bio media in the main chamber.

I Have a Penguin 350 That I've Been Using For About a Year. I Took My Aquarium Down as I Was Relocating to a New State. Tonight I Set Everything Back Up & My 350 Will Not Take in Water. I've Tried Everything

Asked by: Hoffa
Sorry to hear that Hoffa! So make sure the tank is filled to the top with water, and the filter box is also filled with water. If they are, then I suspect your impeller has separated. It will do this sometimes when kept dry in storage. To inspect it, hold the top and bottom tips between the thumb and index finger of one hand. Take the other hand and flick the blades. The blades should catch the magnet within half a turn and they should rotate together. If not, it is separated. If you need more help, call 1-800-322-1266. BREX
