Great filter for 55 gallon tank.
Chris Edmonston
The noise I don't hear except the relaxing sound of water running through the filter, but to me that's all this filter does.

Was a great filter, worked well and kept the tank very clean.

Did my research and people couldnt tell the difference from the Emperor 400. So i bought this since it's price tag was way cheaper than the 400. Ive been running this for about 2 months on my 75 gallon tank. I have an Oscar and they're messy eaters and leave particles in the water from some certain types of foods. The particles dissapear after 20 minutes due to the power filter's water gallon suction ratio. I completely love how silent it is. You need to fill the tank up to at least the waterfall lips of the filter so you wont hear the water splashing. Good good stuff here.

I have a 55 gallon community tank with angels, pleco's, clown loaches, and cory cats. Some messy fish, but this filter carries the load. My only recommendation is to clean the intake tube with each water change. It gets pretty gunked up, very easily.

Before you buy another filter, please read this. I also had trouble with the bio wheel afdter only a year, slowly turning then altogether quit, then restarting it was getting harder and harder. I was disappointed and went to my local fish store to ask what they recommended since these seemed rather shoddy, come to find out he showed me the small impellor located under a plastic casing that no one would have guessed was there or removable. So if you have never heard of this, please check it out first. It is the little mechanism that spins to move the water. Once I cleaned this and another in a small hex they both worked like a charm! Wheels spinning so fast I can't tell they're turning!

The best I have ever used . I have two 30gl. African Cichlid set-ups that I keep over crowded to cut down on the fighting for territory and a 30 gal . community tank and these filters do a great job with the bio-load of each . The bio-wheels do a great job of polishing the water , and a great place to grow good bacteria, this is why they slow down after they been used for awhile , the Bio-wheels build up bacteria and muck , simply rinse them off in dechlorinated water that is the same temp. as your tank water so you do not kill off the bacteria and they will continue to serve you well . Easy to change filters , which I change only one at a time so as not to remove all the bacteria in my filters . And even after my own laziness of going weeks without cleaning it , it will run smooth and whisper quiet . I have never had a problem with noise on any of my 3 Penguin 350 filters , after a water change or power outage just a little shot of water in it to prime it and it starts right up just as quiet as before , and sometimes that is not even needed as the water that was left in it will prime it for me . I will never use any other filter .

I think this is an ok filter, it definitely does its job of providing chemical and mechanical filtration, but heres a tip.
I do ALOT of work with fish tanks and supplies. One thing I have noticed from cleaning, fixing and modifying aquarium supplies is that in the last few years, maybe a little longer, marineland has started using cheaper parts.

I have an older model of this filter and it has adjustable flow and a bit better construction. I liked it, so I bought a new one. The newer one is noticeably cheaper in construction and components, no flow control knob and after four months it periodically grinds and it is LOUD! I hear it across my decent sized home.

So bottom line, it does its job as a filter, and in my opinion its a great filter. Just has a few things it could improve on.

Size Name: 100 gph
Alrighty, so I've got a spoiled-rotten betta fish in a 5 gallon tank. Originally our first canister filter was much too strong for him, and it would push him around the tank. So we got another, smaller canister filter which promptly quit working. We went without a filter for a while before realizing that it'd probably be a good idea to get another one. I'd read both positive and negative things about bio-wheel based filters, and I figured I'd try it out.

As someone who has never used a bio-wheel filter before, I was surprised how easy this one was to put together - It' is most certainly not a one-piece construction, and yes - some assembly is required. Still, it wasn't bad! If you're buying this for a small tank (as this is actually the smallest bio-wheel size we could find), I will warn you: If you wish to use the flow regulator, you're not going to fit it in a 5-10 gallon tank easily. You'll have to cut the plastic connector, which is done easily enough with a dremmel saw or something similar.

Priming it is a bit of a pain. You're definitely going to want to have a small disposable cup of some sort near by to pour tank water into the back - it'll take a while to get it started. So don't think that if you plug it in, it's broken! Ours took 20 minutes to prime itself, but now it works like a charm. Bio wheel is spinning just fine with it only at half-power (it is a small tank, after all!)

I'd recommend this based off of the first few days of use, if anything changes in the immediate future, I'll be sure to update.

I have had my Penguin 200 with the bio-wheel for about a month now. Before I bought it, I did some research and read the reviews about this particular model. I saw all the bad press people were giving it about it's "restart problems" and "Bad Connections" etc. etc. and I have to say, the only problem with the P-200 are the short-bus riders who don't have their water ALL THE WAY UP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE OUTPUT AREA.

5*s*t*a*r*s, the bio-wheel is super, it isn't noisy (you know it's on, but it doesn't stop you from reading a book), and my fish have personally told me that they love it. My fish talk to me.
