  • Fabulous Filter

    By on

    I've used this filter for several years on my 125 gallon aquarium. Do they last forever? no. Are they trouble free? for the most part other than adjusting filters to keep wheels spinning they are well worth the low cost of the product. Do I buy parts other than a case of filters? No I do not and would not buy parts..The parts are very expensive compared to just replacing the whole unit. I use 2 of these on both ends of the six foot long tank, they keep the water and fish pristine. I replace them every 2 years whether they need it or not. I remove the working parts of the old ones and save them in case I need a part during the 2 years. Love the units and would only use this unit if I set up another I've used this filter for several years on my 125 gallon aquarium. Do they last forever? no.

Note: as with any power filter remember it is a must to replace filter at least every month for they can perform. … more

  • too loud I do not recommend

    By on

    it works but it gets obnoxiously loud and it's a real pain trying to quiet it down. you might get it to quiet down for a day or two but then it starts up its grinding again. Ive owned a few brands of HOB filters and this is hands down the worst of them because of the incessant noise. Its so bad I put an old filter back on and put this marineland filter where it belongs, in the garbage. I absolutely regret this purchase.

  • Awesome HOB Filter!!!

    By on

    I have this filter on my 72 gallon bow front, and it's doing an awesome job! Only draw back is that it might actually be putting too much oxidation in my tank, reason being is that I have bunches of tiny oxygen bubbles floating all through out my tank. Definitely love the Marineland brand and I would definitely recommend this product.

  • Works well, but is noisy

    By on

    I like the filtration. It has a spot for two filters which I believe is making a huge difference. I can rotate one out when swapping another one and it helps maintain good bacteria and limit risk during changes. I'm very happy with the functionality of this product. It is noisier than I would like it to be, though. It doesn't matter how full the tank is.

  • Inexpensive and works great

    By on

    I have really dirty fish..Koi. this system is easy. I do a water change every two weeks and I use 2 filters.. replacing 1and rotating the other to the back or first slot. Then rinse the new filter and install in the front slot. Tank stays clear and bacteria colony intact. Many people have complained about this system but I love it.

    This is an excellent filter to use as a water circulator. In addition to the canisters that I have the 2 350s that I have keep my water pristine and my cichlids very happy!

  • Just what I needed

    I needed to replace my old filter pump, as the old one died after 7 years. I had it shipped with my Auto-ship so it saved me on shipping.

  • Works half the time

    Works half the time and when it does it is absolutely great. But does just stop randomly.....and getting it to work again is painstaking.
