I was super excited about this lineup (and purchased two of the refillable cartridges prior to its arrival) seeing as I have several Emperor 280s and 400s still running years after the purchase with hardly any issues at all. I love the bio-wheel concept. They're cheap (now anyway) and help newer fishkeepers to cycle their tank better in my anecdotal experience.
I have not had the (dis?)pleasure of having a regular Penguin filter before but figured this one looked promising. The submerged motor has benefits, adjustable flow is nice, bio-wheel with more surface area, media basket; this all sounded great.
It was a complete disappointment. The wheels didn't turn AT ALL even with no media or prefilter out of the box. I tried on several different sized tanks (29, 40 breeder, 55, 75), made sure the flow was at it's highest output, reseated the bio-wheels, changed the bio-wheels around every way that was possible (including swapping their spots), tried to flick them a billion times, prayed to God, and sacrificed some high priced flake food to it. The most I got was one rotation from one of them. There is zero percent chance I would trust this filter to any of my tanks.
I'm not giving up on Marineland though, I'll be purchasing the Emperor in the hopes they didn't break that model. Why am I giving it three stars? Because I'm attempting to be charitable even through my disappointment. maybe I received a bad something in my box (a poor mold, disfigured bio-wheels) even though I couldn't perceive anything wrong in my visual inspections.
I just can't give this a thumbs up even though I wanted to. If anyone is reading this I would have to say either upgrade so you get the Spray Bar on the Emperor Pro 450 or go with one of the following options depending on what drew you to these Penguins:
If you need/want a submerged motor with adjustable flow go with the Seachem Tidal series made by Sicce. The only knock I have on them is the mechanical filtration (picking up the debris from the water column) is not up to par unless you use different media. It's still a truly solid filter with some unique perks.
If you need/want something that has a wet/dry mechanic (you like the bio-wheel idea) go for the Fluval C series. These tend to break a lot during shipping (or at least three of mine did) but if you receive one intact it's really a great filter. Super easy to maintain with the individual compartments and you can use your own media. It has a Trickle Tray for that wet/dry filtration.
The time-tested Aquaclear has to get a mention here as well. Huge basket, refiltration capability, can use your own media and has a bunch of fans.
For a new fishkeeper I could still recommend the Emperor 400 if you have a large enough tank if you don't mind buying cartridges (or making alternatives which can easily be done). I would honestly feel badly if I recommended this filter to someone who was going to DEPEND on it -- I can't do it.
Keep those nitrates low fellow fishkeepers!
As far as upgrades, I'll start at the top.
1. One-piece hinged lid that closes with a light snap. Thank you, Marineland!
2. Filter media area located inside at the bottom of the center where the intake hooks in. There's a basket that can hold a myriad of choices in there, but a nice option will be the forthcoming micron filter from Marineland.
3. Flow rate adjustment. Yes, you can variably decrease/increase the gph cycled by a simple twist of a knob. The included instructions state that it can be cranked down to 37gph.
4. Pump is an easily accessible/separate but attached sub system, submerged, self-priming and quiet.
Noticeable difference from the 350.
5. Adjustable length inlet siphon tube that has a top section that can be used (open) for surface/mid level skimming (depending upon your water level) or closed, and an inlet screen basket with good surface area that can be opened to place media inside of it as well.
And for the record, it DOES FIT ACRYLIC TANKS, or at least mine anyway which is the SeaClear 50gal rectangular.
And it's a perfect fit in that opening, almost as if the pump was designed with that aquarium targeted.
Great new pump design with it being in the tank. This thing primed right up and started working right away.
You can adjust the flow rate which is great if you have fish that need that slower flow.
It has a basket you can add media to or extra filter floss.
Dislikes: the new pump design made it impossible to hang this on the back of my tank without modifying the lip of the tank. It wouldn’t go in the tank at all. And even after modding my tank it wouldn’t fit all the way down so it sounded like a water fall in my living room.
I had to turn the flow rate down because it was so crazy it was bypassing the filters and spilling on to the overflow passage.
The bio wheels never turned at all so same old problem as the old ones.
The lid took so much time to open. Yes it’s all one piece now which is nice but just tying to open it you almost break the filter tying to open the top. The only good thing is you don’t get any noise from it rattleing around.
The intake tube has the skimmer function near the surface which is nice I didn’t use it but just trying to move it to put it in the close position took forever and if it was off the filter the plastic cap would go flying off when you tried to move it.
Is it the worst filter I’ve ever owned no but I had high hopes for the new and improved model only to have my bubble burst. Maybe the next model will be better.
