Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I have been using bio wheel filtration for many years and I have never been disappointed. I still have the first bio wheel filter made by Marineland and it is still preforming like a trooper

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not sure if I like this or not I bought this system when I needed a new filter. Directions suggest that the biowheel will last for a very long time, but mine stopped spinning after a couple of months. So I bought a new one, and it looks like it's working...we'll see how long it lasts. Otherwise, it works fine

I used the bio wheel for three years.   It has set dry for the last two years.    Should I replace it now?

Asked by: Huntercacador
Not unless it has warped or shrunk so it will not turn properly. BREX

My Filter systems only say 150 not 150B. Will this be the same bio wheel?

Does the assembly include the orange holder for the filter? If not, how do I get a replacement? Mine is broken...

Asked by: Julie K
Thank you for your question. No, it is just the bio wheel. I'm afraid I do not know what "orange holder" you are referring to. There are purple bearings that the bio wheel rests in, but that's it. There aren't any orange parts to the Penguin 150 at all. BREX

Asked by: Maryjo
Good morning, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this would be the correct bio-wheel replacement for the Penguin 150 Bio-Wheel Power Filter. MINI

I can't find the size of my filter but need the bio-wheel replaced as it is torn. It is 4" without counting the post that hold it in the filter. You don't show the size of the bio-wheels so I need help please.
Asked by: mupydawn
None of the filters we have currently on the market have a 4" bio wheel. Even our older ones are either 3.5 or 4.5 inches. The model number is always molded into the cover of the filter system, usually in the upper right hand corner, but not always. BREX

Should I replace the bio wheel?

I have a long story, which I'll try to shorten. I have a 30 gal tank that worked well for a couple years, then was plagued with bouts of parasites, fungus and who knows what else. My fish dropped off like flies. I treated the tank numerous (Fungus Cure, and Furan 2, not at the same time) times yet nothing worked. The fish keep dying. I've had the water tested too, only slightly raised ammonia. Did all the water changes, etc. Finally, I dumped the tank. Removed everything, cleaned it, replaced the gravel. The remaining fish are in a smaller tank for now and seem to be surviving. My question; should I replace the filter? Should I just buy a new wheel or just clean it? Could there be evil creatures lurking in the wheel waiting to attack? I don't want to see these poor fish suffer and die. Not to mention the money I've spent on them and medicines for the tank. Any suggestions? Thanks, Dana
Asked by: rainasmama
Thank you for your question. We would recommend that you use the current bio-wheel in the filter. This will help the completely new set-up have a biological bedding to give it a kick start on cycling (as long as the bio-wheel has not dried out in this time frame). If the bio-wheel has dried out, then you would be able to replace it. Also, there will be no evil creatures lurking in the pleats of the bio-wheel, just good ones hopefully! MINI

biowheel 150

I am on my 3rd bio wheel and it always stops working within a month. Now is there something wrong with this wheel or am I doing something wrong? It makes me look down on owning fish, it makes it hard to take care of them.
Asked by: Jeanjean
If your bio wheel stops turning, it is not a problem with the wheel itself. It's a problem with either water flow not being strong enough to turn the wheel or a problem with the bearings that allow the wheel to turn. If it is a water flow problem, you need to clean your filter and impeller, not just change the cartridge. If it is a bearing problem, these may not be the exact ones you need, but should give you a reference.
