MARINELAND® Penguin 350B Power Filter
Not a good filter, loud and expensive!
I have a 55 gallon aquarium that came with an older verison of a Tetra Whisper Filter. I purchased the Marineland because it was recommended. It was supposed to be quiet; however, it is really loud at night the water splashing is unbelievable. I also found that it didn't clean as well as the Whisper Filter... The cartridges are extremely expensive! 17.99 for a 3 pack... :$ I am currently running 2 filters both the Marineland and Whisper filter in order to maintain the water conditions. My advice is to purchase the new whisper filters they are very quiet!

Good filter if you can deal with water noise
This is an excellent bio-wheel filter for the price and very quiet except for the water noise the bio-wheels make while spinning which can be annoying at night.

When I purchased my 55 gallon starter kit it came with the 350 filter and I have been surprised how quite it is. When it is going you can't even tell. I usually have my water high so I can't here the water splashing and with this filter you don't hear anything!

I just bought a penguin 100 and this filter just started to vibrate, I checked the impeller but the whole thing is in the right place and clean. I really waste my money in this fancy filter.
