Impeller Assembly for the Penguin® 150B.
Penguin® Impeller Assembly - 150B is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Impeller problems I bought a Penguin 150, and I will say it does a very good job keeping my tank clean. Unfortunately, I have had it less than two months, and I have had to replace the impeller four times. The filter works perfectly fine for a few days, then it starts making a grinding sound, which gets rather loud after about a day. Not long after that, it makes a very loud noise, that sounds like a horn. The instructions say gravel or sand is the cause, and to clean the impeller. Tried several times, and it did not help. Found a few forums that suggested giving the impeller a slime coat. That helped a little, but even then only for 15 minutes. I do not see how I could have assembled the filter incorrectly, I just feel like the impellers are either to delicate, or have major design flaw, and there is no way I should not be replacing the impeller as much as the filter cartridge.

Is this impeller for the marineland penguin 160? Magnet cylinder looks to small although impeller wheel is purple.

Asked by: Stackman
No it is not. We no longer have parts for the Penguin 160 since it was discontinued over 20 years ago. BREX

will the impeller for the Penguin 150B work in the Penguin #150 ?

Asked by: Frontosa Jim
Thanks for asking, Frontosa Jim! The 150 and 150B are the same filter. This impeller will fit the Penguin 150(B).
