The Marineland Emperor Power Filter is available in two models: the Emperor 280 Aquarium Filter and the Emperor 400 Aquarium Filter. Both models feature 2 separate water pumps. The Bio-pump pressurizes and sends streams of pre-filtered, oxygen rich water to each Bio-Wheel, while the 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. Comes complete with filter cartridges, refillable media container, and Bio-Wheel assembly.

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.

Pros:
works perfectly
Cons:
none
I own an Emperor 400 and in my opinion, it's the best HOB filter out there. It's extremely durable, and it has a very strong flow that doesn't ebb overtime.

Great Filter
 
 
Pros:
Ease of cleaning, powerful, extra media container
Cons:
Noisy until it gets broken in
I have been using an Emperor Power Filter on my Aquariums for over 15 years. They are equally as good on fresh or salt water aquariums. The bio wheels never need replacing. The spray bar needs to be cleaned every month. I put ceramic pieces in the media containers to add to the biological filtration. I currently run two on my 75 gallon fish only salt water aquarium. Keeps the water crystal clear!!!
