I have six of the Penguin 350B Biowheel Filters (and two of the Penguin 200B's). I really like them.

If you feel like it, though, check out the pricing on these same filters at Foster & Smith as well as Big Al's. It would save you some money to get them there!

Additionally, I use these "SuperCartridges" in them, vs. disposable cartridges. They have TONS of space for the beneficial bacteria and carbon inserts you can use if you choose (inexpensively). These are cartridges that never need to be replaced and cost $4. I highly recommend them... with all the surface on those and the biowheels, you've got lots of space for the good bacteria to live.

Good luck and happy shopping

I like Marineland filters, too. To be honest, though, I kind of never saw the point of the Penguin 350B. That point, why not just buy the Emperor 400?

Hmm. Filter prices have been going up lately, and I guess during that time the price difference between the 350B's and the 400's has increased. The 400 used to only be about $5 more, which isn't much to pay for the 50 extra GPH and the added media capacity.

Drs. Foster and Smith has the 350B on sale for $38.39:
