Product Manuals & Documentation

Part #: 50362

One of the newly designed filters available in the market, Marineland 200B Penguin Bio-Wheel Hang-On-Back Power Filter Pet Store is indeed one powerful machine. The 200B series has a certified flow rate of about 200 GPH, strong enough to work in 50 gallons of water. The filter has a replaceable cartridge that can clean your tanks off mechanical wastes such as fish excrements and leftover food in a matter of minutes. This Bio-Wheel filter cleans your tank through three techniques.

Biological filtration starts by growing helpful bacteria necessary for the breakdown of nitrates, nitrites and ammonia. This is carried on through the Bio-Wheel feature. The chemical filtration is taken care by the patented Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon, a specialized carbon for faster removal of chemical wastes, discoloration and odor. This product also features a noise-reducing two-piece vented covers to let you sleep soundly during the night. If it gets noisy, you might want to check on the intake tube because it may not be properly attached.

Marineland 200B Penguin Bio-Wheel Hang-On-Back Power Filter is designed with a hang-on-back feature for easy installation. This product has proven its performance and it is highly recommended by enthusiasts. The cost of this product is on the spot for an effective, three-in-one filtration system.

Greaat !! Product Review by TRISTAN JAMES (Posted on 1/3/13)

Excellent!

Comments: i got this filter for my 50 gallon freshwater planted tank. it's very quiet and i find it uses a little more carbon then other hang-on-the-back filters which is good. mine eventually broke but that was my fault because it got clogged with sand, and it started making a loud buzzing noise and eventually stopped working, but again it was my fault for stirring up the sand. so i replaced it with a whisper filter, the marineland bio had it beat in the lond run because it was just as quiet as the whisper and it has more carbon in the filters then the whisper. the only thing i didn't like about it was that it's a little bulky but that dosen't really matter.

Comments: This product is high end. Works really great and the thermostate reading is very close to the actual tank temp. Again shipped very fast.

Great filter - Marineland 350 Product Review by JOHN STOLTZE (Posted on 1/12/12)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: All bio-wheels take a few days to break in fully and will make more splashing noise during this period. This is normal as the material in the wheel needs too become saturated and covered with good bacteria. Once this happens it it relatively quiet - much quieter than any of my saltwater setups. (take the noise comments with a grain of salt) Efficient, well made and designed, easy to install and maintain. Always my first choise for freshwater - I only use live rock for saltwater...

Best for Discus Product Review by EARL STRUMPELL (Posted on 6/25/09)

Excellent!

Comments: Discus are very finicky about water quality and are heavy hi-protein eaters, especially in grow-out tanks of which I have several. What goes in must come out and this filter is very well suited to their characteristics. The bio-wheel is a must to remove ammonia and the large surface area of the very easily cleaned media is another terrific benefit. I've tried in-tank foam and cannister filters of every kind and I now have these on all of my tanks with maybe one or two in-tank foam filters to help with the ammonia. I use double the suggested filter capacity/gallon but the gentle water-fall return is fine for smaller fry which can be damaged by strong currents. Yes, it is a bit noisy and really noisy when it runs low during water changes, an annoyance. But the price/performance works for me so I'm not complaining.
