Instructions:
If your filter fails to pump water or flow has slowed

  • Make certain the power outlet is functioning properly. Unplug electrical cord momentarily, and then reconnect to power source to restart the Impeller.
  • Check to make sure Impeller Housing is firmly seated in Filter Box and that water is at correct level.
  • Remove Impeller Housing and make sure Impeller Assembly is free to rotate. A particle of carbon or gravel may be interfering.
  • Inspect aquarium water level. Maintain at ½ inch below top of frame.
  • Clean inside of Intake Tube with flexible filter brush.

    If Your Filter Makes Excessive Mechanical Noise:

  • Make sure Impeller Housing is firmly seated in Filter Box and water is at correct level.
  • Remove Impeller Housing and make sure Impeller Assembly is free to rotate. A particle of carbon or gravel may be interfering.
  • Replace worn Impeller Housing or worn Impeller Assembly. (Consult Replacement Parts List for correct part)

    If Air Does Not Evacuate from System:

  • Check for crack in Intake Tube and replace if defective. (Consult Replacement Parts List for correct part)

    If your BIO-Wheel Splashes and/or Makes Excessive Water Noise:

  • Allow 24-48 hours for "breaking in" period. Material in a BIO-Wheel is not fully absorptive when new.
  • Check aquarium water level. Lower than normal level scan result in excessive splash or noise.

    If Your BIO-Wheel Fails to Move or Stops:

  • Inspect the BIO-Wheel Bearings and Axle for dirt or mineral deposits. You may need to clean these areas carefully.
  • Make sure all parts are installed properly and that nothing is blocking the BIO-Wheel.
  • Examine the Intake Tube for flow interference.
  • Lift the Eclipse Filter Cartridge and check for blockage.
  • Perform regular filter maintenance.

    If BIO-Wheel Becomes Discolored or Dirty:

  • This is not a problem. It indicates the growth of beneficial biological bacteria which remove toxic ammonia and nitrite from aquarium water. Do not attempt to clean BIO-Wheel pleats.
  • As long as a BIO Wheel is not damaged, it does not need to be replaced.

    Caution:
    Never clean or replace BIO-Wheel (unless damaged). Discoloration is normal and desirable. If excessive build up occurs, rinse gently with room temperature dechlorinated water.

    Marineland® Penguin 100B Power Filter is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 189.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a small tank filter that is actually QUIET I will try to keep this short. I have a simple 10G freshwater setup, and was using the Internal Whisper 10i filter. This filter was not able to keep up with my tank maintenance so it was time for a bit of an upgrade. I first purchased the Aqueon QuietFlow 30 as the word 'Quiet' is in the name. It was obnoxiously loud, had a grinding sound. Returned it within 24-hours. I next purchased the Tetra Whisper 20. These filters used to be fantastic, but now they are very loud as well, a tad quieter then the Aqueon, but still unacceptable. Returned it the next day. I was completely frustrated and my only options where to get the Marineland or the Fluvall. I decided on the Marineland Penguin BioWheel 100B. I took it home and setup was VERY simple, rinsed the filters, primed the pump and plugged it in. Thank goodness!!! All you hear is the water trickling into the tank. This is an outstanding filter, quiet and simple to use. My mollies even like the water flow across the top of the tank where the filter returns the water. They drift in it quite a bit. The only noise this filter makes is the water sound. Definitely make sure your water level is high, the lower it is the louder the water sound makes. I will take the water sound over the grinding any day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penguin 150 is a great filter I have never had the noise problem with mine. But the water fall effect dose show up a little faster due to the outlet being a little shorter the aqueon's in my 75 gallon. Not big deal, just keep the tank full. Recovers faster than the aqueon's after tank cleaning. Over all im very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - Penguin Bio-Wheel 200 I don't know why other reviewers have a problem with their Bio-Wheel 200 being noisy. I set mine up according to instructions and it's worked fine with very little noise. I installed a second filter in the slot closest to the Bio-Wheel and noticed that it was obstructing the wheel. Then, I realized that I'd put it in backward. I turned it around, re-installed it the RIGHT way and again, works perfectly and quietly. I would recommend it to anyone!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy, Stopped Working Have had a few months. A month in we started having problems with it. We had to take it apart and wash it and adjust it on a weekly basis. Now it's making a horrible noise. I'm up to fixing it daily. Why have a product that has to be adjusted on a daily basis?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of reasons to use this filter! I have had a penguin 200 in my 30 gallon tank for about 3 weeks. The filter has good water flow, and very little noise. I purchased the Penguin after comparing to other HOB filters for several reasons: 1) The bio wheel allows replacement of filter media without risk of crashing the nitrogen cycle. 2) The filter accommodates 2 filter cartridges, allowing customization of filter media of various types. 3) Marineland offers a re-fillable filter cartridge which can be opened and filled with bulk activated carbon, or my choice of chemical filtration media. https://www.amazon.com/Marineland-Cartridge-Refill-Penguin-Filter/dp/B0009YHSE8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1487770023&sr=8-2&keywords=rite+size+c+refill 4) I am able to cut mechanical filter media (such as 50 micron felt) and place between the two cartridges to produce great water polishing. 5) The bio wheel seems to me to provide a media for biological filtration on par with drip or wet/dry filters. It is worth noting that my filter did not pump water when I received it from Amazon. Marineland cooperated by sending a new impeller, which I received promptly, and which corrected the problem. While it is not pleasant to purchase a product which does not work, I am willing to accept the fact that problems occasionally occur even by the most careful manufacturers, and I have no reason to think that Marineland was especially negligent. To the contrary, customer service was fast, efficient, and courteous regarding my problem. Finally, it would appear that many of the negative reviews posted here and elsewhere regarding these filters seem to be posted by users who neglect to read the product's instructions, or follow recommended maintenance. I am puzzled by reviews claiming that the filter makes excessive noise; mine is quite silent. This is the first Penguin I have purchased, and would recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have Multiples I currently am running a Penguin 100 and two Penguin 350's on two different tanks, and I must say I absolutely love them. They do a great job at keeping my water sparkling clean, and clear. Very low maintenance, very sleek looking, and very quiet. I recommend these filters to everyone.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wheel not working I have had my system for two months and the wheel won't spin. A lot of money spent for a short life.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bio-wheel may not work I bought this product 2 months ago From Marineland. At first they work like a dream, but then start reducing in cleaning power after a filter change and the bio wheel doesn't spin after a month. What is this Marineland. Overall very disappointed with the product. Contacted Support Team and they say it's an issue with my power. How helpful.

    is this filter suitable for a 10 gallontank

    Asked by: sgunny
    Thank you for your interest in this filter. Yes, it is rated for tanks of 10-20 gallons. You would simply not use the extension and mid-level strainer for a 10 gallon tank.

    Would this filter be recommended for ponds or just for tanks? 

    Asked by: Rosytzel
    This filter is just for tanks, Rosytzel. It is intended for indoor use only. For ponds, check out www.tetra-fish.com.
