Quiet freshwater and saltwater powerheads ideal for creating less noise in your tank.

Penguin® Power Heads deliver constant flow with fully adjustable aeration and increased surface agitation...and they remain silent at all times. The custom air valve regulates air flow, the air filter eliminates noise and dust, and the intake strainer keeps debris from fouling the impeller... that's efficiency!
Penguin Aquarium Power Heads is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20 years and counting Bought 2 of the Powerheads for a 29 gallon freshwater, one for use and one for backup. Still using same powerhead in my 55 gallon now. 2nd one still new in the box. Only replaced impeller once in over 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15 years strong My dad purchased 3 Penguin 550's 15 years ago for his 75 gallon oscar tank. This aquarium is now sitting at my house with the same powerheads in it. Best value and quality I've ever seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerhead as a filter I bought the power head to use with my canister filter - but am keeping German Blue Rams which do not want a high water current. So I used just the power head and put a $1 car wash sponge (new in package) onto the intake and it is the best aerator and filter I have in my100 gallon tank as the power heads are cost efficient in general.

Um I have a huge tank that's 150 galons and nothing in ite yet but I don't now what pump to use

Asked by: Samy20
Thank you for your interest in this Marineland product! That would depend on what type of livestock you intend to keep, and what purpose your power head will be serving. If you want additional air, the Penguin 1140 would be a good choice, and we would recommend two of them. If you want more current or movement, the Maxi Jet 1200 would be our recommendation, and again, two of them at least. BREX

It keeps stoping how do I fix it

Asked by: Tailsian
Make sure you do not have anything interfering with the impeller by removing the powerhead, opening it, and pulling out the impeller for inspection. Clean out any sand, debris, sludge, algae, hard water deposits, etc. Use hot water and vinegar to clean the impeller, and swab out the inside of the powerhead. This should prevent any more issues, but if you have sand as your substrate, make sure the powerhead is at the top of the tank or put some floss inside the little strainer to keep sand out.BREX

I need to replace the filter assembly in my Marineland Silhouette Glass Aquarium Kit 3 gallons

Asked by: janjuaryshan
Typically, this should last a few years. If it has stopped operating, be sure to remove the bottom cover, in order to pull out the impeller and clean it. ML90624 is the item number for the pump/filter assembly. You may need to special order it through your local fish store, if cleaning does not resolve the issue. If you are under warranty, please call 1-800-322-1266.BREX

I want to use an underground filter in a 120 gallon XH with African Cichlids. What size power heads should I purchase and how many?

Asked by: Marlowe
I'm not sure I would recommend a UGF for a number of reasons, but if you do decide to go that route, I would use at least 3 or 4, and probably the Penguin 660.BREX

Asked by: Rbtt
It has to be outside the tank in order to pull air into it.BREX

The lift tube on the 1140 is smooth unlike the others. Will the 1140 still work with an under gravel filter?

Asked by: jthall07
Yes, it is definitely for undergravel filters, although a bit powerful for them.BREX
