The Marineland Emperor Power Filter with Bio-Wheel is available in two models: the Emperor 280 Aquarium Filter and the Emperor 400 Aquarium Filter. Both "Hang-On Back" (HOB) aquarium filter systems feature 2 separate water pumps. The Bio-pump pressurizes and sends streams of pre-filtered, oxygen rich water to each Bio-Wheel, while the Rite Size E filter cartridges trap debris and remove dissolved contaminants. Refillable media containers hold an additional 4 oz. of chemical filtration media for maximum pollution removal. The Marineland Emperor 400 or 280 is the ideal aquarium power filter for your aquarium. Requires 9.5" of space along the back of your aquarium. Both Emperor Bio Wheel filters come complete with Rite Size E filter cartridges, refillable media container, and Bio-Wheel assembly.

Great Filter for an awesome price!
 
 
Pros:
Quiet,Clear water, customizable stages of filtration
Cons:
none
This is a great filter. I have had this running in my African cichlid 60g tank, for a little more than 2 months, and it is awesome. Never had any spikes in Nitrites or Nitrates or Ammonia. Would highly recommend. You can also add stages of filtration of your liking in the cartilage.

Emperor 400 HOB power filter
 
 
Pros:
Ease of maintenance, versatile media baskets, quiet
Cons:
None
I've used 3 of the 400's over the years. I love how the media baskets are so versatile and give 100% pass through. Makes it easy to cut floss or felt for polishing and make your own mechanical filtration.

It seems a bit noisy, but other than that great filter.

Marineland emperor 400
 
 
Pros:
Great item, keeps our aquariums super clean
Cons:
no complaints
Great filter system that works great in all size aquariums. Filters the water perfectly and keeps our aquariums sparkling clean. Easy to clean and just a great item. Petsolutions has the best price on this item, their price is about half of what you would pay for it at a pet store. We have purchased 2 of these filters and have been super satisfied with them.
