Patented BIO-Wheel technology eliminates toxic ammonia and nitrite faster!
The Marineland Penguin 350 BIO-Wheel Power Filter provides superior multi-stage filtration for aquariums up to 70 gallons. Equally effective in freshwater and marine settings, this capable clarifier dispenses 350 gph of filtering performance while consuming a very reasonable and energy-efficient 9 watts.
3 Stages of Filtration
Stage 1 (Mechanical) - The included Rite-Size C filter cartridges feature a thick poly-fiber pad that captures and removes free-floating debris from your aquarium water. Their slotted design prevents by-pass, and ensures even distribution of the enclosed activated carbon to maximize contact time and performance. The poly-fiber material also provides supplemental biological filtration. Two extra media slots are included, enabling you to purchase and add a third and fourth Rite-Size C cartridge or other filter media of your choice!
Stage 2 (Chemical) - Fast-acting Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon eliminates odors, discoloration, and organic impurities in your aquarium. The only thing left behind is sparkling, crystal clear water! As carbon de-activates with use, the filter cartridges should be replaced every 2 - 4 weeks to maintain optimal filtration performance.
Stage 3 (Biological) - The Penguin 350 is equipped with two of Marineland's patented BIO-Wheels to deliver outstanding wet/dry bio-filtration. Designed for maximum surface area, they encourage the rapid growth of beneficial nitrifying bacteria which effectively neutralize toxic ammonia and nitrite. The BIO-Wheels will never clog or require replacement unless accidentally damaged.
The Penguin 350 is designed to offer user-friendly setup and maintenance. It features a 2-piece vented lid that provides convenient access to the filter cartridges and BIO-Wheels, while simultaneously helping to reduce operational noise. It also includes an adjustable mid-level intake designed to improve aquarium water circulation. For quality assurance and peace of mind, the Penguin 350 is backed by a 3-year warranty. cULus listed for safety.
