Will this bio wheel fit a marine land penguin 275

Can you adjust the flow rate?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2018
There is a gray lever that opens and closes, allowing water movement at mid-level. If closed, the filter will only pull water from the bottom of the tank.

My bio wheel will not spin.
Answer by ChewyDec 31, 2019
Usually when the Bio-Wheel won't spin either the water level is low, the filter system needs cleaning or the Bio-Wheel bearings are misplaced or dirty. Take the filter off of the tank, take it apart, and give it a good cleaning using warm water and distilled white vinegar. Make sure to pay close attention to the impeller, motor, intake tube, impeller housing and bearings. Rinse them well after cleaning and re-install.

Does it come with filter cartridges?
Answer by ChewyDec 22, 2018
A filter cartridge is included with purchase.

Do Not Buy This

Full disclosure, I purchased this last year for a tank I just assembled in the last two months. Yesterday, it stopped working. Not even two full months, and it just stopped working. Sadly, I am not made of money. I can’t return it, but now I have to wait to replace it. (There are no fish in the tank yet, thankfully.). I’m just so disappointed, because I was finally about to populate the tank. And essentially, my money has gone down the drain. That just makes me sad.

Don't buy its cheap

I thought I would give this project a try, but with in a 2 months the cheap plastic propeller broke, making it junk. I should have gotten another Aquaclear, I've bought 4 of them and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great filter plus out of all the canister filters I've have, the Aquaclear is the easiest to clean up and you never have to worry about it leaking.

Excellent filter

My aquarium's previous filter stopped working and I needed to keep my aquarium clean. This one is smaller but works great. Will be ordering another one soon.

The filter did not clean the tank at all and was extremely loud for the type of filter. Lots of "buzzing or humming. Tried to contact chewy about returning it and never received the email back.

Almost perfection

I received our new Marineland filter in a timely manner. When I installed it, I found that the bio wheel wouldn't spin. Luckily we had 2 older ones, so I replaced the defective one and bazinga, it works! We love Chewy, their Pawsome associates & their prices!

I bought this pump in March. It has stopped working and the wheel won't spin. I contacted the company but never heard back from them.

Works great..until it stops working

I had originally ordered this filter about a year and a half ago.It worked great until one day I woke up and it was not running anymore.I cleaned it up replaced the filter and still nothing. Chewy was kind enough to send me a replacement even if I had purchased the item 6 months ago.The replacement was working fine right up until 2 weeks ago.It started to make a horrible grinding noise I managed to finagle the intake tube which helped the noise a bit but it still was very loud.Today I officially retired the annoying hunk of garbage.Do yourself a favor and order a different type of filter
