I love being able to add extra carbon to the filter and not worry about mesh bags.
Nora L. Boss
Carbon and other chemical media work well in these or you could fill them with biological material such as eheim substrat/substrat pro or matrix bio-media.

These filters will save me a great deal of money, I likely will reuse the poly with each cleaning, and just replace the carbon.

These are awesome products that Marineland has put out that can save you ALOT of money on replacment cartridges. Instead of buying the cartridges that you have to throw out every month or two (which can add up to a lot of money in the long - and short run) you can buy these reusable cartridges (only made to fit pengun power filters in the 200-350 size)that will last a long time providing you don't overstuff them. These cartridges are able to be filled with any media you would like. Carbon and other chemical media work well in these or you could fill them with biological material such as eheim substrat/substrat pro or matrix bio-media. The cartridge in itself could be enough mechanical filtration along with the chemical and or biological filtration media of your choice, but I chose to make them a little more efficient and place Poly-Fil Quilt Batting in front of the cartridges (or even inside the cartridges with the filter media) and they are just as good if not better (I would argue significantly better)than the replaceable filter cartridges. Just a warning though, these cartridges are labeled as a 12-pack. THIS IS NOT SO! I do not understand why they have it listed as a 12-pack as it really only comes as one refillable cartridge. So make sure you buy enough to fill your penguin power filter (the newer model penguin power filter 200 can fit two and the penguin power filter 350 can fit four). Do yourself and your wallet/bank account a favor and upgrade your penguin 200/350 hang on back filters with these!

Edit: Nice to see that they finally properly labeled these.

These plastic box like cartridges feel flimsy and the closing tabs can break off easy. However, they are the only ones that fit the Penquin filters. You are not required to use these in the filters but I fill these with charcoal or ammonia removing pellets to give the filter system an extra boost. This really helps since I reuse the expensive blue filter pads a few times before throwing them out. Simply use a garden hose to clean the blue filter pads and fill the plastic cartridges with charcoal or ammonia removing pellets.

Works great with my Pengquin bio-wheel 350 filter.
Money saver- now I only buy the charcoal and just refill.

I've found these to be useful and a bit better then media bags in that the media stays in the individual slots so more water can flow through it. If you use this for carbon when you feel you need it and also use a reusable filter media rather than the throw away cartridges it save you some money as well.

So far so good, purchased two filters, received them fast as always from Amazon, and added activated carbon I purchased at my local Fish store. Cut some poly fiber purchased at the LFS as well, and put all together just like the regular replacement filters. Took me some fiddling to get everything in and closed, but could be because I really packed the carbon in there, possibly too much and too tight. Even so everything is running fine, and my water remains as clear as always. I have a 55 gallon fresh water tank, with 4 Orandas about 4 inches each(not counting tails) along with two Otto Cats to eat algae. Filter wise I have the one Penguin 350 with the two biowheels and compartment space for 4 filters (which i do keep stocked) and I have a Fluval 405 Canister filter. I had too much flow for a while due to the Fluval's powerful output. My plants had a hard time as well as the little Otto Cats, but i recently purchased the Fluval Spray Bar kit, and it has really helped to disperse that heavy current. Now things are great. These filters will save me a great deal of money, I likely will reuse the poly with each cleaning, and just replace the carbon. This way i keep all the biological bacteria in the poly filter part and keep a good ecosystem going. I recommend these filter cartridges for anyone with the compatible biowheel models.

I wish Marineland would supply these with their power filters.
The Rite-Size filters never have had enough charcoal in them.
With these you can fill them with the media of your choice.
They work much better then the Rite-Size Filters.

Only suggestion I would have to Marineland would be a slight redesign.
It would be a better product of it had 4 latchs to latch the two halves together, insead of just 2 latchs in the middle.
The current design tends to make them box somewhat.

OMG I have been looking for a product like this for a long time. They work so so so good. The design keeps the media spread evenly. I fill my up charcoal and amonia chips and they works awsome.

Great for when you need to use different types of filter media. It keeps the media spread out throughout the entire cartridge so that the water actually flows through the media and not around it. The slots in the cartridge are just the right size and it also snaps securely closed which is important. Product serves its purpose well and I would recommend it to anyone looking to save money in the long run on replacement filters. Just fill this with some charcoal or whatever else you might need, rig a filter pad thats cut down to size to the outside and your ready to go!
