a Marinland Penguin Bio Wheel 150 fit right on the back of the aquarium in the spot where defective Fluval was. I neatly cut the back cover piece to clear. Also replaced non adjustable heater that came with it - Tank was in bad shape at that point and went down hill with the changes briefly. Bacteria bloom, Green water... just one thing after the other. I finally broke down and bought a UV light ... The Green Killing machine. Took one week with UV running but tank is FINALLY sparkling clear -
Let me know if anyone is interested I could post some pics....
I really feel that I bought a lemon...
I got a reply from them:
..... We have found that the filter cartridges for the Fluval U4 filter, item A492, work very well with the Accent. ....
It seems to be too late for you, but hopefully me and others we don't have to go the the extreme of modding a brand new system. Anyway, given the situation, I have VERY low expectations about this alternative cartridge... once I get one and test it I will report back.
