Marineland® C160 Canister Filter
Best filter so far.
I bought this filter to replace 2 side filters I was using on my 55 gallon tank. My tank wasn't big enough for all my fish and the water stayed dirty and smelly. I upgraded to a 75 gallon tank with a c-360 filter. My tank is crystal clear and my fish are happy. I haven't cleaned the filter yet as I've only had it a week. After watching the video it looks fairly simple. I wish I had used canister filters in the past. Highly recommend this filter as it works great.

seals poorly, leaks water, sucks in air
I have had the C 360 less than a year. The last few times I cleaned the canister it would leak water for a short period and pump air bubbles in to the tank for a hour or so. Now when on it continually puts air bubble in the tank and is noisy. Unfortunately I can not turn it off because it then leaks water rapidly, leaks slowly when on. I need new o rings which seems a bit soon since I have owned for only 10 month, however the local pet store can not get them since Marineland is out of stock. This might be the end of my owning a fish tank. Previously owned the magnum for 10 plus years no issues. They don't make them like they used to. Local dealer taught me a temporary fix, put gobs of vasoline around the o ring. At least now I can get a quiet nights sleep.

Great Filter and even Better Customer Service!
I bought the c-360 cannister filter in january 2014, I followed the easy to follow maintenance instructions (this was my first Cannister filter) and 7 months later the rubber seals between filter media trays were swelling up and would not go back together without making the filter leak. I called customer service and explained I loved the cannister filter but after my weekly maintenance the seals seemed to be swollen and the filter was leaking badly, she said they would send me a new seal kit, Less than 2 weeks later the UPS guy dropped off a entire brand new filter! I was in shock!!! Needless to say I am now SOLD on MarineLand Filters and will be buying more in the future for the rest of my tanks :D

Worked great until the motor unit seal failed and it leaked
This filter worked great for about 1 1/2 years. Started leaking. It took a little work to find the source was the filter head. I replaced the oring and used a bunch of grease but didn't help.
Otherwise I do like the filter.
