The MarineLand Penguin® BIO-Wheel® Power Filters provide mechanical, chemical and biological aquarium filtration for a clean and healthy aquatic environment.
All bio-wheel filters feature noise-reducing two-piece vented covers, and adjustable mid-level intake strainers. Filter cartridges come ready to use with each filter. Each contains new faster-acting Black Diamond® Premium Activated Carbon for maximum efficiency. The filter provides multi-stage filtration:
Mechanical Filtration - The Penguin Rite-Size C Cartridge filters out dirt and debris while the ribbed back evenly distributes activated carbon for maximum water contact and clarity.
Chemical Filtration - Inside the cartridge, Black Diamond® premium activated carbon removes odors, discloration and water impurities. The filter cartridge should be replaced every 2-4 weeks as part of your maintenance routine since carbon de-activates with use.
Biological Filtration - This bio-wheel technology delivers superior wet-dry biological filtration for nitrifying bacteria growth, eliminating toxic ammonia and nitrate. The bio-wheel never clogs or needs replacing. We especially recommend bio-wheel filters for seahorse tanks for a higher level of biological filtration due to exposure to oxyen.
If using the power filter for seahorses, it is important to monitor the filter intake to make sure it isn’t overpowering your seahorse’s ability to swim. This filter is adjustable to allow filtration at multiple water levels.
We carry two filter models:
Penguin® 200 - Up to 50 Gallon Aquariums, Filters 200 Gallons Per Hour (GPH)
Penguin® 350 - Up to 75 Gallon Aquariums, Filters 350 Gallons Per Hour (GPH)
