Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst filter I've ever owned! These filters are garbage! I've had a couple filter for months. They constantly makes a grinding noise since I've had it. I've even taking it apart and put it back together multiple times to try and fix it. I've read this is very common in these filters. Stay away and go with an aquaclear .

My 350 came with a damaged rubber grommet on one end but didn't notice it till a month after i bought it. Now i'm looking for new impellers after only 6 months. Thats proving to be a challenge as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multifaceted Filtration For Clear, Clean Water. I recently bought the Penquin 150 Bio Wheel Filter. It is a well built system that oxgenates the water thoroughly. There is room for 2 filters and other biomaterials. The rotating wheel for added biofiltration is a nice touch. It is also a fairly quiet unit. The only drawback is the outflow current is pretty strong. My fish can deal with it, but if you have a planted aquarium, you may want to move your plants about 4 inches or more from the outflow, as I did. I also have rocks and plants setup so my fish have a quiet spot to retreat to. The strength of this filter, however, makes for good water circulation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better by design... Bio Wheel technology is a superior form of wet dry biological filtering. IMO... there is simply no better power filter available. The Ribbed Back cartridge design keeps water flowing through the Black Diamond carbon instead of channeling it around or having a tea bag effect. These filters are well thought out and have proven performance. I give it two thumbs up... And my fish give it TWO FINS UP!

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.

What size filter cartridge is supposed to fit in the additional media slot for the penguin 200? It seems the rite size C cartridge is slightly too big for that slot.

Asked by: Aquamanshane
You can use the Rite Size C, or buy a media container and customize it to suit the tank's needs. The C cartridge fits it, but sometimes may have extra floss on the sides you need to trim off. http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-filtration-filter-media/aquarium-carbon-ammonia-neutralizing-crystals/aquarium-filter-cartridge-frame.aspx BREX

Hello I have the emperor 400. I don’t know if it did it before since I just added my fish from my old tank until today but the rear lid keeps popping up and when you lift it up the filters float up. Is there something I might be missing to stop this?

Asked by: Ericw6311
Well, that's odd, indeed. We have never had anyone report that issue, that I am aware of. Make sure the cartridges are in the slot in back, and the blue is facing the front of the tank. You can place the media containers in front of the cartridges, filled with carbon or bio beads, etc. If you happen to have an air stone near the filter, shut it off for a while, and see if the cartridges still pop up.

I have a new Marineland 60-gal aquarium setup for goldfish ... I have a Bio-Wheel 350 on one side and a 200 on the other. The issue is that the 350 runs amazing, but the 200 needs a new cartridge every 2 weeks or water spills markedly out the overflow.

Asked by: Sir Lucky
Which side do you feed the fish on? If you are feeding on the same end as the 200, this could be a contributing factor. However, the 200 is rated for tanks up to 50 gallons so you are over-maxing it a bit, which could also be a factor. And finally, have you checked the impeller and the motor region for debris? It could be partially clogged, which will also cause the issue. You can certainly rinse the cartridge and replace it just once a month, rather than switch it out so soon. BREX

Our goldfish has outgrown it's 20gal, moving it to a 75gal. Filter space is only 15". What model would fit there and keep up? We're going to add more fish down the road, and he's pretty messy.

Asked by: smendell
Great question! If he is a comet or shubunkin, he will grow to 14", and you will have room for only one more goldfish. Because they are so messy, and your space is limited, we would recommend the Magniflow 360 Canister. http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-filters-and-protein-skimmers/Magniflow-Canister-Filters.aspx. If you had glass canopies on the 75, it would have a backstrip you could cut, and then we would recommend the Emperor 400, possibly one at each end, for even filtration and plenty of space for additional media. http://www.marineland.com/Products/aquarium-filters-and-protein-skimmers/emperor-saltwater-filter-freshwater-filter.aspx.

Got Bio-Wheel Penguin 100 for my 10 gal. I set the tank up then put the filter in but found that the intake goes into the gravel, set it to the mid-level. Poured water into it, inserted bio-wheel and filter, plugged it in and...nothing. Return it or...?

Asked by: Bethany
When using the Penguin 100 on a 10 gallon tank, you do not use the mid level strainer nor the extension. Connect the bottom strainer to the intake tube. Pull the impeller and impeller housing out of the box and re-seat them, then re-insert the intake tube. Call 1-800-322-1266 if it still will not operate. BREX

How does tank water level affect bio-wheel filter flow since the intake sits much deeper inside the tank?

Asked by: Bennette
The impeller in the bottom of the filter box, directly under the intake tube, is what is responsible for the flow, not the intake tube. It drives water upwards, which has to hit the middle of the back of the bio wheel for it to turn properly. BREX

Are impellers covered by the warranty?? I had had my penguin 200 for about 6 months and the impeller is already weared and its making alo of noise? i been cleaning it monthly like the manual says.

Asked by: Mario1992
Yes, they are covered for manufacturer's defects. If they are worn due to sand or something along those lines, that would not be a defect. Sand requires a foam accessory to be placed over the intake tube of any filter to prevent wearing of the impeller. Call 1-800-322-1266 to find out what your options may be. BREX

Is it okay for some water to spillover to the side of the bio wheel?

Asked by: Rivercat333
I assume you mean you have water coming down around the intake tube. This is called the overflow channel, and typically, water will only come through here when the filter cartridge is clogged or the filter system itself has enough sludge, algae, or other debris interfering with the impeller. Basically, unplug it, remove it from the tank, and take it apart to clean the entire system. Once you put it back together, it should stop overflowing. BREX

I bought a power filter system with a bio wheel for a 40 gallon tank and the bio wheel stops moving we have cleaned the filter, and the impeller and the intake tube no matter what we do it spins for a little bit and then stops we don't want to burn it up

Asked by: Redd
The bio wheel should stop on its own and start back up, every few seconds, once it has built bio load up. If it won't start up, then the flow of the filter is slow because of a clogged impeller (sounds like you ruled that out) or some other part, the bio wheel has become warped or the bearings are damaged or dirty. So besides the impeller and intake tube, make sure you clean out the motor housing as well, where the impeller resides in the bottom right side of the filter. If you tend to have hard water, use white vinegar to clean out this area and to soak the impeller too. Soak for up to 15 minutes (the impeller). Next, check the purple bearings the bio wheel rests in. Clean them with a q tip and some vinegar and make sure they are not damaged and are inserted all the way. Smear a tiny bit of silicone lubricant onto them as well. If none of these tips work, please call 1-800-322-1266. BREX

I'm curious about the effect on the bacteria on my bio wheel during water changes. The pump is off 45-60 minutes. Will this cause a significant loss of bacteria on the bio wheel? Should I simply let it float in the extracted water until done?

Asked by: Brewster
No, not really, unless the bio wheel dries out during that amount of time. It shouldn't, but if it does, then that would definitely affect your bacteria, killing them off. As long as it is moist, you're good. BREX

If you happen to have an air stone in the tank or bubble wall, move it away from the filter. If you have sand in the tank, clean it out of the motor and impeller, and place some filter floss in the strainer to keep it from happening again. If it is neither of these issues, call 1-800-322-1266. BREX

My bio wheel (200) has build up of minerals on it (from the hard water?) It spins sporadically rather than constantly. I've changed the filter multiple times and tried both the first filter slot and the second but it doesn't solve the problem.

Asked by: wanadj
If the actual bio wheel has hard water deposits on it, buy a new one and float it for a week or so, in the tank, then swap them out. If the filter system itself has hard water deposits, take it apart and clean everything with white vinegar. This will greatly improve the flow. Also, as long as the bio wheel starts and stops, it does NOT matter if it is sporadic or constant. Sporadic is actually better, really, as it provides wet/dry trickle filtration, which means the bacteria get a lot more oxygen so they work even harder for you. BREX

Why is my penguin filter so noisy? Vibration noise everywhere, it is not against wall but it seem comming from the suction tube connection to the machine. The noise stops when i lift the suction tube a bit up but it decreases the suction power.

Asked by: Josh1987
That is probably some type of impeller issue, so the first thing to do is take out the tube and impeller housing so you can inspect the impeller. Check it for any type of damage or debris, then check the bottom of the filter box as well, where the impeller sits. There may be some gravel, grit or other debris down in the motor causing it to not sit correctly. If it continues to vibrate after you have inspected/cleaned these areas/parts, please call 1-800-322-1266. BREX
