Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris80 Horrible!
I have had this filter now for three weeks. I have 150 gallon tank with two turtles. It worked great the first week. Then it stopped sucking up water. I have cleaned the entire filter checked the intake valve and propeller and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I have no idea why it's not working. I still have to manually clean my turtle tank out every week to keep it clean. Was not worth the money I spent. Returning it today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rlkfish1 Marineland Emporer 280 replacement
I'm so sorry on my response to your email, I was on my phone and I accidently slid my thumb over the report button and no...and it wouldn't let me change it?
Why did Marineland quit making the 280 model??? What replacement did they make for a 20 to 30 gallon tank? I really love the dual action with the spray bar. I know the penguin filters are there but I really like the spray bar action. All said and done...they are the best power filter on the market! And I have tried a lot over the years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boesamani27 love my 280
when i was still young to aquariums, i had many issues with trying to find the right filters and an overall good brand to use. I had been using a fluval 70 on my fancy goldfish tank but the filter was unreliable and hard to clean. When i was starting my malawi mbuna tank i bought an emperor 280, and from the start i loved it. when i was constructing it i loved how versatile it could be with all the things you could add to it. Also i am very impressed with the bio wheel technology, very innovative. i also added a 36'' led light on that tank and it looks incredible. currently I'm setting up a planted angel tank and for everything I'm using marineland
