Marineland® C360 Canister Filter
Absolute garbage go with the Filstar instead
In less than 3 months the canister needed to be
replaced (under warranty). The replacement lasted 4 months and the same issue occurred. There are better canister filters out there for less. I owned other marineland canisters that also had several issues. If you absolutely must buy a Marineland filter, go with the hang on the back biowheel products. They are much better quality.
Customer service was good, but that does not make up for a product with a serious design flaw. It is very common for these to leak from one of the many seals near the top.

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.

Leaking after only 6 months
Unfortunately this filter began leaking only 6 months after I purchased and installed on the same day. I came home to find my 96 yr old hard wood floor ruined from water damage. I ordered a replacement for the canister but STILL waiting on it to arrive. It's been unpluged for one week and sitting in a 5 gallon bucket to catch the water. Even with the tubes shut off and it being unplugged it's still leaking.
I also e-mailed Marineland over a week ago and no reply. Too much hassle. Avoid this product.
