Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of reasons to use this filter! I have had a penguin 200 in my 30 gallon tank for about 3 weeks. The filter has good water flow, and very little noise. I purchased the Penguin after comparing to other HOB filters for several reasons:1) The bio wheel allows replacement of filter media without risk of crashing the nitrogen cycle.2) The filter accommodates 2 filter cartridges, allowing customization of filter media of various types.3) Marineland offers a re-fillable filter cartridge which can be opened and filled with bulk activated carbon, or my choice of chemical filtration media.https://www.amazon.com/Marineland-Cartridge-Refill-Penguin-Filter/dp/B0009YHSE8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487770023&sr=8-2&keywords=rite+size+c+refill4) I am able to cut mechanical filter media (such as 50 micron felt) and place between the two cartridges to produce great water polishing.5) The bio wheel seems to me to provide a media for biological filtration on par with drip or wet/dry filters.It is worth noting that my filter did not pump water when I received it from Amazon. Marineland cooperated by sending a new impeller, which I received promptly, and which corrected the problem. While it is not pleasant to purchase a product which does not work, I am willing to accept the fact that problems occasionally occur even by the most careful manufacturers, and I have no reason to think that Marineland was especially negligent. To the contrary, customer service was fast, efficient, and courteous regarding my problem.Finally, it would appear that many of the negative reviews posted here and elsewhere regarding these filters seem to be posted by users who neglect to read the product's instructions, or follow recommended maintenance. I am puzzled by reviews claiming that the filter makes excessive noise; mine is quite silent.This is the first Penguin I have purchased, and would recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful!!! 0 stars I have a penguin 350 for almost 2 years now. I paid around $45 for it. I've had to replace the impeller assembly 14 times already. These impellers cost around $20 a piece with shipping! It should cost about $2 as often as it needs to be replaced. What a terrible design by Marineland! These filters are absolute garbage! I will never buy another filter from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter! I have had a 200 for about 6 months now and could not be happier. The fact that it has 2 slots for filters is great for when it's time to change the filter. Simply rinse an install the new filter in front of the old filter and a week later the new filter has built up enough bacteria to remove the old filter without lose of cycle. Get idea and the bio-wheel is always keeping your bacteria active. I only wish my intake tube was a little longer. It sits about 5" above my sand substrate and I wish it was adjustable so I could get it closer to my sand. Other than that great product and very affordable!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Real good but room for Improvements. First let me say I think the bio wheel concept is the best idea out there and I have over 55 years experience in aquariums. However, the best way to mount these filters is to hang the suction pipe inside the stand pipe of an under gravel filter. The benefits are too many to list here. However, filters above a size 200 the suction pipe wont fit into the vertical stand pipes. Also, older filters had round suction pipes making it easier to fit them into the vertical stand pipes. The rectangular suctions for size 200 and down can be manipulated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not great for 38 gallon bow front I'm sure fir a smaller tank the bio wheel 200 would be a good fit, but after using it fir a mobth in my 38 gallon bow front kit, I could not get the tank to cycle or really filter, just seems to much tank or height for the 200. Aftwr much research and lots of money on filters I opted for the internal canister. Decided to keep the 200 firbio media only, and withjn 12 hours the tank was prestine. If your loominv for a filter with better media options the bio wheels are not it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Filter. No Mishaps =] I have had every freshwater filtration device on the market. The bio wheel penguin series is by far the most competent filter. Also to clear this out immediately, since I'm raving about this product, I can say that I have no monetary ties with any marineland or any other aquarium product, and never have. but this company- Marineland -simply created the best filters on the planet. Had a 20 gallon reg and a 20 long for 8 years....always had problems with cloudiness and disease until switching to the bio wheel penguin series (and a ton of water changes naturally). After my 20 gallons were long gone when I went to college and I fell out of the hobby, I got my first paycheck after graduating and bought a basic 10 gallon starter kit just to get myself back into the great hobby. Everything in the kit was great but I had to add the penguin 100 series filter to the tank and I have yet to have any problems with the tank. Pair any Penguin Series Marineland filter with keeping up on your tank cleanings: and you'll always have serene water quality within your aquarium. Thanks again guys ! (and again no one paid me to write this review as you can see I have the grammar of a 6 year old donkey.) lol Happy New Year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HOB Filter Never had a problem with either my Penguin 100, or 350! Had my 100 for my 20Gal for almost three years and it still works like a charm. It is very quite and does great in removing waste and debris from the water. Every month I take it apart and clean it in a bucket of water from the tank. Just started a 55Gal goldfish tank a few weeks ago with the 350 and it works awesome. It is also very quiet. The only sound is all the water being pushed out from both sides of the filter. Will stick with Marineland filters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penguin 330- Longevity! Love this filter. I have been running this double bio-wheel filter for over 7 years without fail. We are surly not aquarium experts and use in a 55 gallon hobby tank that has had its share of algae blooms, poor water and filter change intervals, etc. this filter keeps on going and most of our common tropicals live over 5 years (we currently have a 7 yo Mollie !). Filter changes clear any cloudy water right up. I feel for the people who have trouble out of the box but for us this filter has been like a tank. (We have replaced the impeller once )

For 55 gal. tanks tetra filter doesnt seem to last for more than a couple years. fluval didnt handle biowaste load like it should have. Have had marineland penguin C for 9 years now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really poor design. I recently bought the Penguin 200 filter to pump my turtle tank because my old one broke. Almost immediately after installing the filter a jarring blender like sound was emitted by the pump. I thought something was wrong with the impeller, so I removed it. Upon removing it I found that nothing was wrong with the impeller but in fact the mid-level intake strainer does not create a tight enough seal to allow the filter to even pump the water. The only solution is to seal the holes on the filter or to by a separate extension adapter for the tube. Why the filter doesn't already come with one of these extension tubes to remove the need for the the broken mid-level piece is beyond me, and the whole product seems like a trick to get you to spend extra money to get it to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never even worked. I recently bought this filter (200) for my new 45 gallon tank. I began setting it up. It took me a while to figure out which direction to put the filter cartridge, as there are no actual instructions or anything mentioning, in detail, on how to assemble the product. Once I figured this out, I added water to the back, and plugged it in. It immediately began making a very loud noise, which I figured was the impeller. I figured that the noise might happen, as most of the filters I have purchased make a loud grinding noise for a short time before any water comes out, but 5 minutes later, there was still no water flow. I unplugged the filter, and dissembled the impeller housing. I tried again, to no avail. I tried for another half an hour before deciding to go onto the internet and see if anyone else had the same problem, or to see if there was a solution not mentioned in the "Instructions." I still don't have a solution. I would like to give a higher overall rating, but this is all I can do for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet after new impeller Shortly after I bought my filter system, the bio wheel stopped spinning. It would work on and off so I figured I just wasn't cleaning it as frequently as I should or didn't have the water level high enough. But then there was a horrible grinding noise that only got worse after a thorough cleaning. I called the company and the gentleman was happy to help; after a couple questions he decided to send me a new impeller. I received it in just a few days and now the filter is quiet a mouse. I am not only happy with the product but the customer service as well. As a side note, I very much wish that customers would troubleshoot and call the company to get help before leaving such negative reviews. It skews prospective customers' decision making when shopping for a filter system.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 10 Gal Kit - says 100 Filter but actuallly got 75 I purchased this in 2015 and set it up. There is a small BIO Wheel bit it doesn't turn when the lid is on the filter. I have tried to re-position the lid and the wheel, but the only way it does work is when I put something under the lid to hold it up so that the wheel can turn freely. Has anyone else run into this problem? And why does the box say 100 when it is actually a 75? I have had other Bio Wheel Filters (5 Gal) and found they worked fine. I do like the Bio Wheels better than other Bio System Filters, but am wondering whether the 75 was actually tested, or assembled with the correct parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Constant cleaning I bought a Penguin 150 due Marineland's great reputation.Unfortunately I am CONSTANTLY cleaning/replacing filters because they get dirty rather quickly (about 1 filter every 2 days). So dirty that the bio wheel stops spinning, and the water exits out the overflow into my tank. Funny thing is the instructions say to replace the filter every 2-4 weeks. It would be nice if the filters lasted that long. Another issue I have is my small fish are getting stuck on the intake of my pump. It would have been a great idea if Marineland made the intake bigger (like for the Penguin 350). Just a thought.

As long as they move, that's all they have to do. There is no right or wrong speed. They can stop and start even, as long as they move on their own. To increase their movement, make sure the tank is filled to the top, and the impeller and motor are both very clean. BREX

We bought a 20 gal marineland kit over a month ago. The biowheel moves slowly and stops for a second or 2 and spins again. We just cleaned the intake tubes and tried replacing the filter cartridgue. Is this normal or should the wheel turn continuously

Asked by: Amysue
This is basically normal. It is simulating a wet/dry trickle filter. As long as it spins on its own, it is working properly, there is no recommended speed. Don't forget to clean the impeller and the motor as well since debris affects those the most. BREX

I have a 3gal tank with original bio-wheel. Last Monday I set it up and let it run, with out any fish, for 24 hrs. After which I added 1 Betta. Everything was fine until this evening (Thursday). There are now large bubbles in the water. Is this ok?

Asked by: Luvbettas
If you are seeing these bubbles on the surface, this could mean you are over feeding, and have a protein build up in the water. A betta should be fed 1-2 pieces of food, twice a day, and that is it. They do not need a lot of food, and over feeding is extremely bad for them. We would recommend changing about 10-20% of the water and putting some fresh water into the tank. This should be done about once a week with a tank of this size in any case. Add AquaSafe Plus and SafeStart Plus with the new water. BREX

Good morning - I have a Penguin Power Filter #75. The bio wheel is not spinning. We have set it up the same way as the video with come differences, our model does not have the two piece filter cover and we had to put the wheel together ourselves.

Asked by: DDBird
The Penguin 75 should have a one piece cover, not a two piece one. The bracket and bearings you do have to install yourself, and then you rest the bio wheel down into them. Make sure the water level in the tank is to the top of the tank, and that the filter cartridge is not clogged, etc. How well the bio wheel spins is dependent on the flow rate of the water through the filter.

my bio wheel spins unbalanced do I need to replace it

Asked by: fishy D
If it is able to spin on its own, no. Check your purple bearings and make sure they are installed properly and are clean. Also, you may want to take the filter apart and clean it as the flow rate of the filter is dependent on how clean the system is, and this directly affects the bio wheel. You especially want to clean the impeller and the filter box. BREX

What position should the “door” (grey switch) be in? There aren’t directions or any explanation for how it works. 

Asked by: Lbucklin10
You are referring to the mid-level strainer. This part allows more circulation of the water when it is in the open position. Unless you have small fry or tend to feed heavily and don't want the food removed, leave it in the open position. BREX

I just bought a 200 b filter and there is a lot of noise. Sounds like the impeller. What can I do to fix this 

Asked by: Andy246
New filters can be noisy if air is trapped around the impeller. This usually lasts a day or so, max. To help reduce the noise, and ensure the impeller is not only okay, but seated properly, pull out the intake tube, impeller housing, and impeller, inspect them, and then re-seat them in the filter.

My Bio wheel is not moving on it's own but I can spin it freely. It worked perfectly one day and not at all the next. The water is flowing, the motor working fine but it just won't go. The wheel itself is is perfect shape. Any ideas on this are appreciate

Asked by: janeo
Make sure the water level in the tank is to the top of the tank. If it is low, this will keep the bio wheel from turning. If you have had it for a few weeks or months, the motor can be fine, but the impeller could be dirty and need cleaning. A dirty impeller slows the flow rate down drastically. You would need to pull the intake tube, impeller housing and impeller out. Clean each part and down in the filter box as well. Call 1-800-322-1266 is you need more help. BREX

I have a BIO wheel 200 and it works but it very noisy. When it pumps. I have taken the impeller out and ck every thing nothing in the housing. I have to pry out the housing a little to quite it down but now that doesn't work. And less then a year old

Asked by: Driving me crazy
If the noise is a buzzing, make sure you plug it into a power strip with surge protection. Right now, heat sources are running like crazy because of the bitter cold, and this is putting a drain on voltage which can cause buzzing. If it is grinding, and you have sand, the sand has probably damaged it and you need a new impeller. If it is rattling, the impeller may be loose in the impeller housing. Did you also clean out the area at the bottom of the filter box where the impeller sits? Use a swab or twist a paper towel so you can pack it in there tightly and twist it to clean it out. Also, soak the impeller in distilled white vinegar in case you have hard water deposits. Please call 1-800-322-1266 so we can help troubleshoot it and see what you need. BREX

Penguin 350 making grinding noise. Cleaned impeller and tried vasonline still making noise. Going to buy new impeller. How do I keep bacteria on bio wheels alive since I am not running filter because of noise

Asked by: Dfeldbauer0427
The bio wheels have to stay wet, so float them in the tank. Do you have sand? If so, that's why the filter is noisy. Sand grains get caught in the bottom of the motor or up under the magnet, and wear grooves in the shaft or in the sides of the motor. You have to place filter floss in the bottom strainer or buy a sponge accessory to cover it. BREX

How much is it?

That depends on the size you need as well as the market in which you shop, but this line runs from $15-$50 typically. BREX

My bio wheels on my filter are starting to move but stop then move again and I got the filter about 1 week ago is this normal

Asked by: Dustin757
A little soon for this to happen, but yes. Make sure the tank is filled to the top and check for any debris clogging the intake tube, filter box or impeller. BREX

My filter no longer is pumping any water nor is it making any sounds when plugged in. I have taken the intake tube out, the filter out, made sure there's no obstruction in the impeller, cleaned everything, and filled the filter box with water.

Asked by: TheScienceTeacher
Make sure you have the impeller in the filter box, by itself, no water, when you plug it in. If it still makes no sound, the motor is dead. If it does make sound, try soaking the impeller in vinegar and cleaning out the well of the motor with vinegar as well. If you are unable to resolve this, call 1-800-322-1266 as we would be happy to help. BREX

My power went out now my 350 will not propel water over the edge it makes a rattling noise. It does that when its about to go over normally but now it stops pushing the water thru

Asked by: Billium
This is a sign it needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Pay close attention to the impeller and the bottom of the motor, where the impeller resides. If you are unable to get it operating, call 1-800-322-1266. BREX

my biowheel 200(13 weeks) on my saltwater tank (37 gallons), has stopped completely and wont work , theres no water damage ive done only filter change and tube cleaning ,, I need this filter to work , I set up temp diy one with your maxijet 900 and a 2l

Asked by: joshbridges
As it is a marine tank, you need to remove your impeller and impeller housing every month and soak the impeller in distilled white vinegar to keep it free of salt crud. Also, clean out the well of the motor by soaking a paper towel and packing it into the motor for a few moments, then twisting it around, and pulling it out. Rinse everything very well with hot water.
