Good evening i have the marinelane LED kit with the biowheel filter my water is very cloudy i w told by a friend that i needed the carbon as well being hat it didnt come wih he kit i didnt think i needed it but i would like to am i suppose to use it with this filter or can i even use it if so what kind would i use cause my fish are dying and ive tried everything
Asked by: Lite36
Hi Freshwater, The carbon is included in the filter pads for the Biowheel. The cloudniness could be that you need to rinse the gravel real good or something like that. Even if that would be the case it should settle after a few days. If your fish are dying check the ammonia levels or any other toxic chemicals that the bio-wheel should take care of. Again, you should let the bio wheel run (without fish in the tank) for a few weeks so the bacteria in the filter develops and process the toxic chemicals into less toxic nitates.

Upgraded Filter to Emperor 400 in 29gal LED kit

I just purchased a Emperor 400 as an upgrade for my tank and was very disappointed the cover for the filter would not close due to how the cover fits around the outside making it to large for the space provided by hood. After all the work setting it up I am surprised by this crucial flaw. Really not sure what to do, would rather not downgrade to the Penguin series. Would the clear covers for the Penguin fit on Emperor as a possible solution?
Asked by: Greyman
Unfortunately, using a different cover on the Emperor 400 is not going to fit properly. Sorry you had that experience, when we design are complete kits we develop the best equipment to fit within those systems. A Penguin 200 is a great filter for that size tank and what has been specified for that kit. The cut out does offer some flexibility for different filtration options but the Emperor 400 is really far too large of a filter for this tank. For a more custom experience in designing your aquariums, I would suggest purchase our products individually so that you can design to your specific needs. If you need any other additional information, please let me know.

Which pump do I need?

I have a 37 gal tank with you guys. Ive had it for a good 7 or 8 years I would say and for part of that time it was sitting in the garage. I recently took it out and was getting ready to get some fish but realized the pump is missing. I have all the other parts but was wondering which basic pump I need? Please help me out its been sitting for a month now! thanks.
Asked by: Nickc52042
It sounds like you may have an Ecplise 3. The model number would be on the back of the hood. We sell parts for this unit on our site. Thanks

Filter power

I'm running the Penguin bio-wheel that came with my 10 gallon tank. I have 4 tetras in there now and they seem to be doing OK. The pump is rated for a 10 to 30 gallon tank. When the pump is on, there seems to be a lot of current in the tank and looks a little bit like the Colorado River. The fish are constantly swimming against the intake and are pinned to within an inch or two of the bottom. When I turn off the pump, they swim around like they did when I bought them. I've filled the tank to the bottom of the waterfall, and baffled the intake with plants, but it doesn't seem to help all that much. Is there a way to turn down the volume of the pump, or can I safely turn it off on occasion to give them a break? Thanks..love the light!
Asked by: Lary
Having the water slightly lower than the outflow of the filter adds to this. When you look at the tank, you should not see a water level.

Can I order a Double Bright light strip that will fit into my 37g LED kit? I'd like to be able to keep live plants without changing the hood.

Asked by: Groven
Unfortunately it will not fit into the 37g hood. You can just use a glass canopy with the Double Bright LED if you'd like.

Do I need a glass canopy to protect the light?

Asked by: JRene
If you are talking about the LED Bio-Wheel kit then no, we have protected the light from the open water. If you are purchasing one of our LED Single, Double or Reef Capable strip lights, then yes. They should not be used over open water.

LED lighting in 55g kit

based off the other questions here, it appears that basic LED lighting is inadequate for growing most species of live plants. is this also true for the double-LED bar canopy in the 55 gallon kit? assuming yes, is there any option to upgrade the lighting, and still utilize the canopy that came with the kit? i would like to grow plants in my new tank (just set it up yesterday) but i want to get an idea of the additional investment required for this.
Asked by: wacky1980
Hello, Actually, yes. We just introduced a new product to the pet industry called Hidden LED Lighting System. This is a LED light about the diameter of a single fluorescent tube. It tucks underneath your frame at the top of the tank and is submersible in water. It is rated at 6500 Kelvin and 460 lumens. There are currently two sizes, 17" and 21". We recommend at least two for your tank. These will begin shipping later this month and should be in stores sometime in April. You would continue to use the LED lights that came with your kit, but would add these into your system to allow for plants.

55 LED lightening system is enough for a reef aquarium??

I just got 3 days ago the 55 g biowheel kit tank at Petsmart, I would like to know if the lightening system in this kit is enough for a reef saltwater tank? If not, would you recommend any other lightening system from your brand for a 55g reef tank tank? In addition, I know the kit includes the biowheel penguin 350 filter, I bought and additional Emperor 400 filter, I would like to know if working with those two filters I will have enough oxygenation and filtration for my 55g reef tank? Thank You. I have read I lot about your products and I am amazed with your excellent technology. Thank you so much for care about our pets!
Asked by: KathyC
Hello, No, the light that comes with that system is definitely not reef compatible. It is similar to a basic fluorescent light. You would want the Reef Capable LED light and a glass canopy if you intend to keep corals, etc. The filters you have chosen will certainly provide plenty of filtration. You may also want a powerhead or two down low in the tank, just a few inches above your substrate, in order to provide current across the lower levels. You will need to maintain the filters frequently, changing media, washing out the filter boxes, etc, often. Most reef keepers believe that hang on the back power filters create a lot of nitrates. This is only true if you do not maintain the systems often. You may also want to add more biological media to both fitlers, such as bioballs or biobeads. And don't forget a protein skimmer as well. These are very important to keeping water quality pristine and in the type of condition corals require. Good luck with your new system and thank you for your support of Marineland products.

i have been thinking about getting a 55 starter kit but i have 2 cats and i know they will like to get on the top of the fish tank and sleep but i don't know how well the top is made will it hold a 10 or 15 lbs cat?
Asked by: mav969
Hello, Thank you for your inquiry. We have not tested the aquariums or hoods for such situations, and we really cannot make any type of guarantee here. However, keep in mind that while they most likely won't break one, they could knock a hood down into the water, which could be dangerous. Regards, BREX

Submersible Heater

I recently purchased the Marineland Bio-wheel LED Aquarium kit and dont know how to use the heater. It does not have any heat settings so does it automatically turn off at a certain temp? Really need help since its getting toward the colder months!
Asked by: ZVFD
Hopefully by now you've figured out your heater controls. While the internal thermostat does not have degree settings, it will stay constant once you determine how far to turn the knob. I keep a thermometer inside my tank and check it every day. These are good little heaters. (I set my tank up quite a while before getting fish, so I was able to play with the heater until it was right where I wanted it.)

Regarding upgrading the lighting of the Marineland 10-gallon Biowheel LED aquarium.

I have a Marineland 10-gallon Biowheel LED light aquarium kit. I would like to purchase a light that would allow me to grow plants and that would fit in the hood as nicely as the light that came with my aquarium kit. Please advise the part/model number of your plant-compatible lights so I will be able to make the appropriate purchase. Thanks!
Asked by: Noriejo
Hello, We do not currently have any upgraded LED lights available for this system. You could grow some plants but make sure they are of the type that require low light levels. Anubias and Java fern or moss may survive with the type of light that comes with the kit, for example.

Heater Temperature?

The heater does not appear to have any temperature markings. It only as a + and - sign with a line in the middle if you keep it past the middle line it works but if you go below it does not, So my tank just keeps rising the temperature. How do i work this? (10 Gallon Version. )
Asked by: Anthony0419
Hi, You'll have to have a thermometer to see what the heater is doing. Make a small adjustment, then read your thermometer after a period of time, maybe a half hour or so. Then adjust your heater one step at a time until your heat is where you desire. Without the thermometer it will just be a stab in the dark. If you have the thermometer and still can't seem to get the heat where you want it, contact customer service at: consumersupport@unitedpetgroup.com or by phone: 1-800-526-0650. We will be happy to assist. You did not mention which model heater you have but this sounds like one of our Tetra heaters.

Details on LED Light Kit R02980

I have the 10 gallon, half-moon with the standard light kit. However, I would like to upgrade to include the blue LEDs. Is the LED model R02980 a clip-on light kit.
Asked by: Wade
Hi, We currently don't have a clip on light with Blue LEDs, but I would recommend item number 32996, which is the Marineland Aquarium Light. This version would sit on top of the plastic canopy and has rubber bumpers that reduce the chance of it slipping. This light has a lot more LEDs that the one that comes with the 10g Half Moon and will really illuminate your aquarium nicely. You can find this at your local PetSmart or your independent aquatics retailer.

Can the LED Aquarium kits grow live plants?

I'm specifically looking at the 10 gallon kit. I understand that the larger the tank, the more LEDs --> more penetrating light. I'm almost sure that the larger tanks have LEDs powerful enough to grow live plants, however, what about the 10, 20, or 29 gallon?

Do you sell double light or reef light led aquarium kits?

I really like the 55 gallon tank kit, but i have live plants in my aquarium. I have read that single light is not enough for the plants and i would need double light or reef. do you sell double light or reef kits? or is it easy to replace the lights in the canopy? or would i have to purchase another canopy?
Asked by: Chespi
We recommend the Reef Capable lights for live plants. The Double Bright will also work for low light plants. Unfortunately, those can't be put into your hood on that kit. You will need to use a glass canopy and the strip light will go above that.

which direction does the filter face in the led bio wheel 10 gallon tank?

Asked by: carol
Carol, I have this same filter in my 10gal. tank, if you are standing in front of your tank, hold the filter with the foam away from you, there is a notch on the right side (top) that will line up with the water intake tube and the lip on the filter should fit there perfectly when you insert it into the back of the unit. Good luck! ps. the unit will run quieter if you keep your water level higher in relation to where the water comes out of the filter :)
