"MINE IS VERY QUIET."

I want to answer some of the complaints I've read. In the afternoon the noises started again. I bought a top fin 55 gallon aquarium on sale. I've think I've had had six of them. You do have to unplug it for those two jobs. The Marineland penguin 350 is a great filter. I have contacted customer service to see if I can get a replacement unit.

"This is the one."

I had a lot of particles in the water. They are easily found from mom-n-pop pet stores to large chain stores. Get it and take heed to what I wrote. Overall, I like the 350's slim back design, and be able to add up to 4 cartridges. Firstly, I'd recommend taking the motor apart and putting it back together. I AM IMPRESSED THAT IT WORKS AS IT ACTUALLY SHOULD! It's easy to clean and we all know about easy.

2. Lee's Pet Products ALE13202 Undergravel Fishbowl Filter, 2-Gallon

"Huge capacity."

One thing I think is worth mentioning is the need to prime the filter. I eyedball everything and put it together with a look back at instructions. I used to have a 37 gallon eclipse aquarium. With the 350's inexpensive price point, you can’t go wrong with this powerful filter. I still have my original wheels on the year old 350 with no issues whatsoever. It's easy to clean and we all know about easy. There must be a huge batch of these units at Amazon right now that are bad.

"AFTER 3 DAYS."

SO, I sat down and read EVERY little thing in rhe instructions. They were great to deal with and the new filter is working great! First they are simple and designed to pump and filter aquarium water. This is not my first experience with a marineland filter. I use Marinelands refillable cartridge for extra carbon on the extra slots. Also the maker should review the pump design. I'm currently in the process of receiving another replacement on that model.

AQUA-TECH AQ-78266WM First Impressions

"Added 3 baby turtles."

In the afternoon the noises started again. I was using a Tetra in-tank filter previously. I used to work as a marine biologist for a major state aquarium. All in all, I highly recommend this filter and I'm a extremely happy customer! I plan to cycle this new AC 50 on a separate tank and then xfer it to the 20 gallon. I have the topfin 29 gallon tank and used the HOB filter it came with. It wasn't producing much surface agitation.

"No issues."

This new AQ50 filter has loose bio-media, i. I was using a Tetra in-tank filter previously. I was worried that it might be too much for my aquarium or that it would be loud. I'd highly recommend not replacing the bio material& sponge, ever. Overall, I like the 350's slim back design, and be able to add up to 4 cartridges. You'll want to pull that water from the bottom. Clean the foam insert apparently it pulled a lot of dirt and needs cleaned.

"Best to you all!"

I had originally got one for my 75 Gallon tank housing an Oscar. Works like a dream and can't even hear it! Therefore, you wouldnt have 2 filters running. I checked and cleaned it and still just as loud. First they are simple and designed to pump and filter aquarium water. It was perfectly quiet without any extra effort on my part. It doesn't rise up hugely above the tank like a lot of HOB filters.

"A few tips."

I had a lot of particles in the water. You'll want to pull that water from the bottom. Works like a dream and can't even hear it! They are simply the best design for nitrifying bacteria to grow on. Lift the sticking wheel outuse a Q-tip to clean the slots where the wheel rests. My baby turtle even loves it so much he won't let go. I wasn't able to fill my tank fully because there was little to no surface agitation.

However, lately I've purchased the Aqua Clear 70 and 50. The first night I had the pump going it started making a screeching sound. , that's what makes this so funny.

"This thing is a beast."

I wasn't able to fill my tank fully because there was little to no surface agitation. With the 350's inexpensive price point, you can’t go wrong with this powerful filter. As for performance, I couldn't ask for a better filter. This new AQ50 filter has loose bio-media, i. That water got so dirty we had to keep changing it every 2 or 3 days.

"My fault not theirs."

I checked and cleaned it and still just as loud. Following morning it was running quietly. I will pick 3-4 of these at one time over a single system any day.

"Very pleased!"

BUT after some YouTube research I was able to fix the noise issue. I was worried that it might be too much for my aquarium or that it would be loud. I can hear it 3 rooms away grinding away. The only thing you hear is the water and even that is a soothing sound. It doesn't rise up hugely above the tank like a lot of HOB filters. SO I decided to order this for my 29 gallon tank. Doing research I learned that if I add more filter media, the noise will subside.

"I bought an FX5 in 2011."

What I don't like is how much smaller it is than the Aqueon. I attempted to clean and lube the impeller, but to no avail. If that does not work, look into silicone grease so you can lube the impeller. I will never buy any other HOB no matter what deal they might be offering. I stopped the pump and I pulled it apart. This filter has is a very simple and efficient design. Also the maker should review the pump design.

I want to answer some of the complaints I've read. My tank was a mess when I got this pump. I was worried about some of the negative reviews.

"IMPORTANT!"

I was new to the hobby and didn't realize that Tetras were inferior filters. Once it loses its charge, you'll need to replace it. The filter stopped working all of a sudden. Not sure what I'll do with the more complex design. It's only rated at 25 gph less, but holds considerably less media. Just rinse them out once a month, don't throw that beneficial bacteria away. DO NOT CLEAN OR WASH the paper wheel itself.
