I used to love Marineland! Not so much anymore. The C-530 is over rated, not efficient, over priced, and not worth the effort to change the water I in it. Priming pump is a joke. Go get an Aquatop...smaller size, easy to deal with, rated higher gph for same price, WITH UV STERILIZATION that has on/off switch. Marineland lasted one water change....

Rated 3 out of 5 by eecc Works really good when there is no leak
The filter worked perfect out of the box, quite and no issue. After the first cleaning, the filter started to leak. I had to add silicone based lube around the o-ring to make it not to leak. Silicone lube worked for couple cleanings, then it didn't work anymore. They need to develop better gasket to seal the canister better. The o-ring type is just way too weak. Maybe something like double o-ring will work.

I decided to set up a new 75gal tank back in December of 2014, and I knew that I needed a filter on the large size because of the size of the tank. After looking I decided to buy this product after reading some reviews of other Marineland products. At the time I purchased this filter there were no reviews on it, boy do i wish there were now. Setting the filter up was no problem and it was going well, until my first maintenance. I dreaded preforming maintenance because of this filter. The treys would not fit tightly together, the filter lid would then not seal properly (I basically had to sit on it to even get it somewhat closed), the seal would then leak horribly, sometimes the water would flow and sometimes it would decide not to; no matter how hard I tried to get it flowing, the primer would not prime(it got stuck after i pushed it down and it would not come back up). Finally, about 5 months ago the main seal completely failed and I woke up with almost a quarter of my water gone out of my tank, and a soaking pressed board stand(which I had to throw because the structure was to badly compromised). Thanks to this product I had to completely scrap a well planted and stocked tank. I would not recommend this product to anyone, there are much better filters out there.

Just picked up the C-360. Was able to assemble and install all parts and media in no time at all. Very easy to use and setup. So quiet, i had to actual feel the canister for a hum to make sure it was running! LOL. The very next morning the tank water was super crystal clear! Very nice product.
