I have the 20 gallon starter kit. Is the heater fully submersible?

I'm a complete beginner. I have set up the tank but to have the heater with the dial above the water level means the filter runs like a waterfall. Is the heater fully submersible which would allow me to raise the water level and stop the filter running so noisy
Asked by: AndyP
Andy, the heater is most certainly fully submersible and you are correct that by adding more water to increase the water level in your tank, you will hear less "noise" by way of your filter and the sound of running water. Marineland2

We bought the 10 gallon kit and are not sure if the filter is installed properly. The water is not filtering through the filter.

20g plants

you answered what i was asking .. i just tried to keep it as short as possible ... i was asking about the kit... but as a product i was referring to the kit, the light bar, or the hood/light combo, all seems to be the same light ... so i looked at Q & As for all 3 ... figured id be a lil more specific for anubias .... so for anubias in a 20G how many hours should i keep the hidden led (+ the light bar in the hood if needed) on a day
Asked by: andrewchris5
Plants in general, even low light ones, should have at least 10-12 hours per day. BREX

20g growing live plants

brex, between this and the hood and just the light bar ... the question has been asked about growing plants .. and even from you the answer varies ... im looking to grow anubias in the 20 gallon kit ..... will this do it .... if not then would the hidden led be too much light for anubias ??? i can just get a new top and single or double bright instead of the hidden ... if needed at all ... thanks
Asked by: andrewchris5
Well, your question is a bit confusing. The link indicates you are asking about the hood, but in your question, you ask "between this and the hood and the light bar...". So I am not sure what product you actually own. The hoods are not 6500 Kelvin, they are only 5500, and your anubias may live, but it won't thrive and it won't bloom (I grow anubias and other plants myself and have for years). The Single Bright would be the same situation. The anubias will live, and grow very, very slowly, but won't thrive, won't bloom. The Double Bright will definitely grow it and it will bloom occasionally, as it still is not 6500 Kelvin, but has more LEDs so more lumens. The Hidden LED is 6500 Kelvin and 460 nm so they will thrive, grow well, and bloom well under it. It is an inexpensive supplement for folks who have the wrong type of light and do not wish to move into the more difficult plants, and pricier lighting systems. If you wanted to grow Cardinalis, Madagascar lace, microsword, etc, you would want the Aquatic Plant Lighting System for the best results. I hope that clears it up. This forum is really for quick answers, and quite often, people ask vague questions, which make it difficult to give specific answers. For more detailed answers, it is always best to call us at 1-800-322-1266. BREX

LED Corrosion?

After reading many reviews, there seems to be an issue with moisture getting into the LED's which results in corrosion. Has this issue been resolved? I'd like to purchase a 55Gal but have concerns about this one point.

Not the LED kit, no. It does not have all of the spectrums that live plants require. Low light plants like java moss or java fern may do okay. For more options, add the Hidden LED light in the 17" length. BREX

sizes

I'm trying to buy a Marineland tank kit and it mentions 5 sizes. OK, I'll bite....what are those sizes? I currently have 6g pillar and it's driving me nuts. WAYYYYY too deep and a pain to work with.( Who has a net or vacuum that's 16 inches long??? -what was I thinking) I've almost always used Marineland tanks and filters as when they were in the top they were easy to keep. Oh yeah...and no room for the heater cord...sigh. Sorry guys, the pillar is just not working for me. Do you still make acrylic top filtered wider then they are tall tanks?
Asked by: rookielynn
LOL. The Pillar is actually pretty popular, and we have several colleagues with them on their desks, I tend to like a long tank myself. The 5 LED kits I believe your link is referring to (links never work on my end), are the glass kits. They come in 10 gallon, 20 gallon, 29 gallon, 37 gallon, and 55 gallon. There is also a 28 Euro kit which is a really cool size. Long and deep, the best of both worlds in aquariums. I really like this one. As for acrylics, we only make the 4 Classic and the 6 Pillar, right now. There are always new ones coming out though, so I anticipate new acrylic kits soon. We do make a few others in our Tetra line, There are several nice ones there. All 5 gallons or less. Visit that site at www.tetra-fish.com, and click on products, then aquarium kits. BREX

Why is the pump not working correctly

I just cleaned the filter and put in new filters. The bio wheel is not turning at all and the fish poops are collecting on the surface. I have too take them out with a strainer. This is the second bio wheel that I purchased. Also one if the clips that attach the hood to the tank broke, can this be replaced? The aquarium is a 37 gallon led with a bio wheel 200
Asked by: mochismom
The bio wheel is affected greatly by flow rate. When it does not turn on its own, you want to remove the impeller, intake tube, and impeller housing and thoroughly clean all of them with distilled white vinegar and a soft cloth. Also, clean out the bottom of the filter box where the impeller resides, with a q tip and white vinegar. Also, check and be sure the biowheel bearings are in place, and were not lost during a previous filter change, etc. They are purple tabs the biowheel rests in. In regards to the clip, call into the support staff and they can assist you with that; 1-800-322-1266. BREX

What is the wattage of LED light?

I have a 20 gallon aquarium kit with LED light. What is the wattage of the LED light?
Asked by: flyfree
LED is not evaluated by wattage. Lumens and Kelvin is what is important. That particular light is 5900 Kelvin. Lumens is 7.4 per LED bulb. Wattage is 60mW. The only information wattage gives you is the amount of energy being produced or used, rather. BREX

The assembly for the Penguin filter, when following the directions, is too long for the tank. The intake will not fit in the tank when the filter is resting on the edge. Thoughts?

You are using the extension which is for a 20 gallon tank. The 10 gallon only requires the intake tube and bottom strainer. BREX

Marineland Bio Wheel LED Aquarium Kit 20 gallon- LED lighting and plants...

Is the LED lighting in the Marineland Bio Wheel LED Aquarium Kit, 20 gallon, sufficient lighting for plants in a planted aquarium? If not, is there a replacement lighting system that will fit on the 24 inch hood OR is there a replacement 24 inch hood that will fit the dimensions of the tank top and the have room for the Bio Wheel filter?
Asked by: Carri
I have the 55G LED aquarium kit and have had success growing low light plants such as Anubias, Crypts, Java moss and ferns in a freshwater setup but plants requiring more light wattage would need a different LED setup such as their aquatic plant lighting system. By going that route you would need to replace the hood that comes with the 20G kit with a clear hood or no hood at all.

10G exact dimensions with hood

What are the exact dimensions of the 10 gallon tank with the hood attached? I am planning to put the aquarium on a bookshelf and I only have 13" in height clearance. Thanks!
Asked by: FisherKing
If you are looking at the LED light strand kit, it would be right at 13". If you are looking at the LED lit with the light bar, it would be almost 16". In both cases, you also have a filter on the back that is going to be at least 2-3" higher than the tank as well. Bookshelves typically do not make the best spots for tanks. Water can be splashed out or spilled, and ruin items surrounding the bookshelves. Also, if a tank is not on a level surface capable of bearing that much weight, it can be disastrous. BREX

Can these aquarium kits hoods be used with live rock in a saltwater fish-only system?

Hi, I've currently got the 29 gallon aquarium kit set up. According to this site you can use these kits with saltwater too. Are the lighting goods okay to be used with live rock in a fish only system or would I have to invest in another lighting system for the live rock? Thank you in advance!!!!!
Asked by: chrisz21
They are best in fish only tanks, not live rock, etc. Not quite bright enough for live rock. You could use them in conjunction with a Hidden LED light. BREX
