"Great ATBA" - By J. Manguy (el centro, ca United States)
I have a 8" RES and he can get up into the turtle topper. It may be plastic, but it isn't flimsy. It obviously looks like plastic though. Kind of like a toy. It works great, which is all that matters to me. I especially like the area on the top for the clamp lamps. It fits up to a 55 gallon tank. Hopefully they soon come out with a bigger one for bigger tanks too. :)
I was actually looking for a holding tank for water so I could pre-treat it. I had been looking at much more expensive garbage cans or troughs of some sort, just because I needed 100 gallons. I found this and was very excited. It holds its shape great, is very sturdy, has had no leaks, yet is very light so when I need to move it it'll be easy.
"great filter, better company" - By Kevin McGowan (Houston, TX USA)
I have a cascade 700 canister in my 40 gallon heavily planted tank and it's a truly wonderful filter. It was easy to set up. It's powerful (all of my plants wave in the currents created by the spray bar and the fish seem to enjoy playing in it). My water is crystal clear and I love that I can put whatever media I want into the filter baskets. Best of all, the filter is really easy to clean: disconnect the hoses, carry the filter to the sink, replace the filter floss, reconnect the hoses, and plug it back in.
Last week one of my shut-off valves started dripping. I e-mailed Penn Plax to ask them where I could buy a new one and they replied to my e-mail within about 2 hours asking for my address and apologizing for the inconvenience. ... full review
...if you only use one of the two outputs(like I do), put a piece of hose onto the unused outlet - it will muffle the noise it makes[I don't know why they don't tell you this in the pump instructions!]. If both outlets have hoses on them, whether they are in the water or not, this will be a quiet air pump. Having two outputs is great, you could easily feed two 30 gal tanks with this, and it seems like this could handle a 100 gal tank.
Also!: Make sure to position your bubbles emitting from your stone/bubblewall NOT near(under) your filter intake. The intake will take in the air bubbles and cause significant noise as it spits them out up near the filter[gheez, why don't they tell you this in the pump instructions!]. With a quiet pump and keeping your air bubbles away ... full review
I have the 55/75 and only had it a short while. it has never missed a lick. i moved the whole tank to another room a week ago and when i plugged the filter in.... well,,,,, it fired right up. However now that i read these post i am a little concerned as the reason i am here now is to purchase one for another tank. However after thinking so hard my brain was smoking i came to this conclusion,!! I have been owning aquariums for past 25 years now and used every brand of filters and i have been stuck on emperior 400 for a long time but i have many of those and every other brand, out in garage not in use due to noise, bad motors, low flow and many broke due to me smacking them on the wall to get them started again. so if this ... full review
"Best filter EVER. Don't listen to the 1-star crowd." - By J. Beals (San Diego CA)
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.
