"A very obvious waterfall."

Months later, this filter is still working great on my 29 gal set up. , that's what makes this so funny. I had originally got one for my 75 Gallon tank housing an Oscar. They can be very noisy at the impeller, which sometimes quiets in time, but may not. I have 4 other AquaClear filters and like them. Clean the foam insert apparently it pulled a lot of dirt and needs cleaned. Once I found that, the world was right again.

MarineLand PF0350B Final Thoughts

"Since then no problems."

The Marineland penguin 350 is a great filter. Therefore, you wouldnt have 2 filters running. I took it apart reassemble it and it's not pumping in the water. In the afternoon the noises started again. The ability to regulate the flow solves the loud waterfall problem. Of course the sound all depends on how much water is in the aquarium. Early on it seems to be working as advertised.

"AFTER 3 DAYS."

I want to answer some of the complaints I've read. Typically just below the flat part of the outlets. I was worried that it might be too much for my aquarium or that it would be loud. In the afternoon the noises started again. It wasn't producing much surface agitation. Oscars are very messy fish, especially during feeding. Therefore, you wouldnt have 2 filters running.

"I bought an FX6 in 2013."

I had originally got one for my 75 Gallon tank housing an Oscar. I decided to go with this filter since I had a positive experience previously. I have contacted customer service to see if I can get a replacement unit. Once it loses its charge, you'll need to replace it. Overall, I'm very happy with this filter. They are easily found from mom-n-pop pet stores to large chain stores. I have purchased several Aqua Clear filters over the years.

"Coarse, medium, and fine."

I was worried that it might be too much for my aquarium or that it would be loud. I own 3 of these and besides my canister they are my favorite filters. You CAN rinse the old ones in an emergency. I thought that U had put it together wrong so I took it all apart and started over. Also price was very reasonable and shipping was fast. Fill up the media slot with water until it's full. Once I found that, the world was right again.

"You'll be happy with it."

It doesn't rise up hugely above the tank like a lot of HOB filters. The Aqua Clear is on the left and the Aqueon is on the right. I can take apart a car engine and put it back together. This is a well designed unit and a lot of bang for the buck. First they are simple and designed to pump and filter aquarium water. So, easy is good, both for us and our fish. SO I decided to order this for my 29 gallon tank.

MarineLand ML90750 First Impressions

"Try it you wont be sorry."

They can be very noisy at the impeller, which sometimes quiets in time, but may not. Not sure what I'll do with the more complex design. Overall, I like the 350's slim back design, and be able to add up to 4 cartridges. If that does not work, look into silicone grease so you can lube the impeller. The Marineland penguin 350 is a great filter. I have 4 other AquaClear filters and like them. I can take apart a car engine and put it back together.

"SO THEREFORE."

I used to work as a marine biologist for a major state aquarium. I have the topfin 29 gallon tank and used the HOB filter it came with. I use Marinelands refillable cartridge for extra carbon on the extra slots. My box came in good condition, parts where in tact and new. Now I'm having the same issue with the Aqua Clear 50. All in all, I highly recommend this filter and I'm a extremely happy customer! Overall, I'm very happy with this filter.

"It's priced awesome!"

I have the topfin 29 gallon tank and used the HOB filter it came with. I will pick 3-4 of these at one time over a single system any day. They are simply the best design for nitrifying bacteria to grow on. This new AQ50 filter has loose bio-media, i. Now I'm having the same issue with the Aqua Clear 50. MAKE SURE YOU PUT WATER IN THE BACK OF THE FILTER! The only thing you hear is the water and even that is a soothing sound.

"So far so good!"

Fill it up with water before you plug it in. I'd highly recommend not replacing the bio material& sponge, ever. I've been researching so many things on how to take care of them. It was perfectly quiet without any extra effort on my part. I recently upgraded from a 10 gallon aquarium to a 29 gallon. There is a sound from the water shooting into the tank! I use Marinelands refillable cartridge for extra carbon on the extra slots.

MarineLand PF0400BD First Impressions

"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.

"I hope this helped."

I still have my original wheels on the year old 350 with no issues whatsoever. Never ever ever use it past a year. The ability to regulate the flow solves the loud waterfall problem. It doesn't rise up hugely above the tank like a lot of HOB filters. There must be a huge batch of these units at Amazon right now that are bad. I used a small pair of pliers and carefully got the pebbles out. There must be a huge batch of these units at Amazon right now that are bad.

"Will UPDATE!"

I'm a mechanical engineer and understand design. The instructions are a bit to much for me. Oscars are very messy fish, especially during feeding. This is a good choice if you're tired of cleaning your turtle tank all the time. I was worried that it might be too much for my aquarium or that it would be loud. Firstly, I'd recommend taking the motor apart and putting it back together. With the 350's inexpensive price point, you can’t go wrong with this powerful filter.

"I bought this filter."

The bacteria eats the nitrates in the water to help keep it clean. Unlike my old HOB filter, it doesn't sound like a leaky toilet. I've think I've had had six of them. It's only rated at 25 gph less, but holds considerably less media. This new AQ50 filter has loose bio-media, i. BUT after some YouTube research I was able to fix the noise issue. I was worried about some of the negative reviews.

"This one does!"

Controlling the flow rate doesn't require modifying the filter. Doing research I learned that if I add more filter media, the noise will subside. Once it loses its charge, you'll need to replace it. I can take apart a car engine and put it back together. They were great to deal with and the new filter is working great! I've looked at so many filters and reviews. It's easy to clean and we all know about easy.

I had a lot of particles in the water. DO NOT CLEAN OR WASH the paper wheel itself. I used to work as a marine biologist for a major state aquarium. I sent a request for replacement and one came the next day. The first night I had the pump going it started making a screeching sound.
