At Marineland, we design our filter cartridges to meet the absolute highest standards of water purification, performance, and operational ease. Each pre-assembled cartridge slides easily into place, providing superior mechanical and chemical filtration, and making replacement fast, dry and effortless. The cartridge mechanically filters water through a pad of double thick poly-fiber.  Debris and waste particles are trapped, and water is chemically filtered through Marineland's Black Diamond® Premium Activated Carbon. 

Inside the cartridge, a patented ribbed backing ensures even distribution of activated carbon to deliver maximum water-to-carbon contact.  The result?  Crystal clear, crystal clean water.

Hi, I just set up a used Galaxy 5 aquarium system and everything is working wonderfully but it seems to be a discontinued model and I can't find replacement filter cartridges. Do you know if this or another of your filters would fit? Thank you.

Asked by: Birdpond
Hello Birdpond, That is a model that was discontinued well over 10 years ago. It takes the Rite Size Z cartridge which is still very much available. BREX

I perchessed a tank at a thrift store and now I am trying to find out the filter size it is 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 for the eclips fish tank lease and thank you

Asked by: Roger s
Unfortunately, there are similar cartridge dimensions for more than one filter that we make. If you look at the pump/filtration assembly, you will find the model number molded into it. Depending on which one you own, it will either be molded into the top of the pump or on the side/end of it. It will read something like PFE2 or PFE02/03/05HX.... Once you get this information, type it into our search bar to locate a page with all the things we sell for that tank or email us directly, and we will point you in the right direction. BREX

Which filter cartridge is needed for Eclipse pfes 02d? Also what size tank is it? 3 or 5 gallon?

We were recently given this tank and it has all working parts but needs new filter cartridges and perhaps a new Biowheel. What size biowheel is needed? How many fish will this tank hold? We want them to be comfortable. Also, is a heater needed for most fish and will it work with this tank? Thanks so much!!
Asked by: mzpeo
It is a 2 gallon Eclipse. It takes Rite Size Z cartridges. 1-2 very small fish like white clouds or platys. Potentially 3 fish as long as you add them slowly, and do regular water changes weekly. Yes to the heater; you need a 25 watt, adjustable one. Fish that do NOT need heaters, as long as room temperature is 70-72 degrees are white cloud minnows, and rosy barbs. BREX

Aquariums and Rite Size Z

I have one of your 5 gallon eclipse systems and LOVE IT; my fish hare healthier and more active than they have ever been before since I made the switch to your tank this summer. I e enjoyed it so much I've decided to start a 10 gallon tank, and was wondering if you have a filter for that size aquarium that would also take the Rite Size Z filter (trying to see if I can simplify caring for two tanks.) any insight is appreciated.
Asked by: HobbitFish
Glad to hear you are enjoying our tank! Unfortunately, no, not for a 10 gallon tank. We make the Penguin 75 and Penguin 100 filters, both will work in a 10 gallon tank, but use the Rite Size A cartridge. BREX

Items needed for older eclipse system

Hello I am trying to get an older aquarium going again. It has an old bio wheel that I assume needs replacing. The filter has the id of PLTE1. It also needs a replacement filter cartridge that is long and when I shake it it rattles so I'm assuming there is charcoal inside. The Biowheel and filter are built into the hood. Could you please let me know what I need to get this going again? Thanks. It looks like a 10 gallon eclipse/regent.
Asked by: Cori
That is an Eclipse 1 or PFE1. It is discontinued, but parts are still available. You need the biowheel, and the Eclipse Rite Size G replacement cartridge. We sell other parts too, if you find you need the pump, impeller, etc. BREX

How do I place the H cartridge filter on eclipse 3?

I have a second hand eclipse 3 aquarium system. The former owners were using a completely wrong size penguin filter folded and stuck in. I can't find instructions ANYWHERE of exactly how to place it in the compartment. Does it go in so it covers the bottom, and if so, how does water pass through it to filter? At the moment I've simply got a bunch of filter media stuck in there - and it wasn't like anyone or any THING, I mean, come on, you don't so much as provide an instruction booklet on how to use the aquarium - told me there is an outlet on the bottom water is supposed to pass out through so I had it covered with stuff for three weeks.
