MARINELAND® Penguin 100B Power Filter
Very noisy filters
I purchased the Penguin 350 and 200 filters for my 60 gallon aquarium. Both of these filters are ridiculously loud, at night I can hear them from my bedroom, which is very annoying. I have replaced the impellers on both of the filters to see if that would solve the problem, but it did not. These are expensive filters and they are not worth the money, the much cheaper Top Fin filters that I have on my other aquarium are much much quieter. Also, the filters are not very compatible with the Marineand aquarium that I bought. The filter housing covering the Bio Wheels is jammed up against the light housing which has to be resolved by lifting the light housing off of its mount just to turn it off or on.

I like the system thus far it is efficient, quiet and easy to maintain.

BEST FILTER I HAVE EVER USED!!!!!!!!
It is great filter and it keeps my tank clean for months but it's pretty noisy but it's fine with me because it's not in my room great filter I would recommend it for any tanks between 30-55

After 10 years the impeller has finally started to rattle
I have had a 350 on my tank for ten years and it has started to make a rattleing noise. Inspecting the impeller shows the housing the shaft goes through is worn. I don't think you can get much better than that. I'm going to replace the impeller and keep my 350.
