Filtration systems for aquariums are made up of different parts that work together to make sure the filtration process goes smoothly and efficiently. There are many brands of filtration systems available, and one of those brands is Marineland.
Marineland has a product line of filtration systems
, one of which is the Eclipse line. Eclipse filtration systems are among the most trusted and respected in the industry, and many aquarists swear by their high-quality performance.
However, even something as five-star as an Eclipse filtration system also gets broken parts sometimes, mainly due to the natural wear-and-tear that comes from regular use. But you don't have to worry about replacing the whole system. You can always buy replacement parts.
One of the parts you can buy is the Marineland Bio-Wheel for All Emperor Filters and Eclipse II Pet Store
. This wheel is run by the water flow coming from the pump. It serves as the natural home for beneficial bacteria, which grow on the dense and thick surface of the wheel. These bacteria, in turn, feed on harmful microorganisms. Thus, this wheel enables biological filtration.
The Marineland Bio-Wheel for All Emperor Filters and Eclipse II should be replaced only when damaged. Otherwise, it should be left as it is.
Marineland/Aquaria Bio Wheel Assembly Replacement for the Eclipse Filtration & Illumination Systems 1, 2 and 3. Marineland/Aquaria Bio-Wheel should not be replaced unless damaged. The water flow from your filter drives the Bio-Wheel. As the Bio-Wheel rotates, beneficial bacteria grow and thrive on its super dense surface. As water flows, the Bio-Wheel eliminates ammonia and nitrite on contact.
