Fits all Emperor BIO-Wheel filtration systems.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Filters the Water effectively, but . . These 'Cartridges' work effectively filtering my aquarium, but these 'Cartridges' allow small 'Carbon chips' to pass through the backside of the cartridges; these small chips can get into the Impeller Chamber (causing noise and inefficient spinning of the Impeller), and these chips can also, get into the Spray Bars (Decreasing water flow and Reducing the Revolutions of the Bio Wheels). I advise that when Rinsing these Cartridges, (from front to back and wiping the backside, plastic surface, with hands and fingers), removing Carbon Dust, (a Must; any Dust not rinsed from the Cartridges will cause a film to appear on the surface of the water), run your hand back and forth against the backside of the Cartridges and you will see these 'Small Carbon Chips' being flushed out of the Cartridge. I spend a minute or two or three, doing this 'flush', turning the Cartridge as I do this; I am never able to fully, eliminate all of these 'chips' from being flushed out, but I attempt to get the majority of them, if I can. . . .Would be nice if Marineland could use a bit lager Carbon, and / or find a way for these chips to not get broken into smaller chip during shipping / handling; if that happens to be the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Emperor line of filters the 240 and 400 model have been my choice for over 20 years. The Emperor Filter line is a blessing to the Salt water community. The quality, long term performance and reliability is outstanding. The ability to quickly change out the blue filter elements up front make tank house keeping a breeze. Secondly the aft media baskets offer you an unique advantage unlike any other product. If you open the basket on a counter top cut a poly filter into strips and apply it into one side of the media basket. On the opposite side of the basket add either bio ceramic media on one side if you have the 400 model and/or chemi pure. The 400 model affords you two such filter elements and media baskets. by doing this I have completely eliminated issues from phosphates and other water quality issues.Thank you Marienland !!!!

Can I use 4 filters? Why has 1 Bio wheel stopped turning 

Asked by: DanO3
Thanks for asking, DanO3! Yes, you can use four filter cartridges if your filter has the slots for them. Bio wheels usually stop turning because the shaft and bearings are dirty or because there isn't enough water flow. I suggest cleaning the bio-wheel shaft, purple bearings, and impeller with distilled white vinegar. If that doesn't do the trick, give us a call at 1-800-526-0650 (M-F, 8 am-5:30 pm, EST).

What size (in microns) are the openings of the mechanical filter?

Asked by: Moria843
We do not have a rating for the blue floss as the structure is very irregular and the size of particulates that could flow through would not be described as microns. It is not intended to be a polishing type of media such as diatomaceous earth or our micron cartridge. BREX

Which emperor for a 40g tank?

Asked by: Donking
Either would work, actually. The 280 is rated for up to a 50 gallon tank. The Emperor 400 is rated for up to an 80 gallon tank. I prefer to have additional filtration to reduce my maintenance, but you would need fish that could handle the powerful flow rate of a 400 filter. BREX
