Aquarium power filters combine three filtration styles with power and flexibility. Each Emperor BIO-Wheel powerfully cleans your aquarium water through mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration mechanisms to remove debris, water impurities, and dangerous toxins. Redesigned models feature: BIO-Wheel filtration, refillable coarse media containers, and an easy-access, hang-on design with a flip-top hinged cover, plus an adjustable intake system that can simultaneously filter water from both the lower and middle levels of the aquarium for boosted filtration and water circulation. Epoxy-sealed, moisture-proof motor ensures safe operation. The 400 filters up to 400 gallons per hour through two BIO-Wheels. It includes two each of the Rite-Size "E" Filter Cartridges and 4 ounce media containers. The 280 filters up to 280 gph through one BIO-Wheel. It includes one each of the Rite-Size "E" Filter Cartridge and 4 ounce coarse media container.

Custom designed for Emperor 280 and 400 Filter Systems. Mechanical and chemical filtration in a ready-to-use cartridge--no messy assembly required. Changes in an instant. Makes water sparkle. The Emperor Cartridge combines with Emperor's Bio-Wheel Classic Wet/Dry Biological Filtration to provide truly balanced total filtration. Mechanical filtration--traps suspended solid waste and dirt particles. Each Emperor Cartridge has a huge 44 square inch surface area polyfiber pad for primary mechanical filtration. Chemical filtration--adsorbs many harmful pollutants which discolor aquarium water and cause foul odors. Each cartridge contains two ounces of Black Diamond Activated Carbon--the best available. Up to eight ounces of additional carbon or chemical filter media of your choice can be added with Emperor's Media Container. The Emperor Filter Cartridge evenly distributes the carbon vertically for maximum water contact--no bypass as with filter bags. Just shake, rinse, and install. It's best to replace disposable cartridges at least monthly or as soon as they become clogged and/or activated carbon is no longer effective. The removal of pollutants and debris is only completed when you change the cartridge. Aquarium Filter Marineland Emperor

In this report I will give you an unbiased description of the Marineland Emperor 400 and 280 aquarium filters. After that, I will give you my own review and experiences I have had with this product. I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments section below.The Marineland Emperor Power Filter is one that I have a great deal of experience with. I have been using the same Emperor 400 and the same Emperor 280 for over 10 years. These were some of the first filters I purchased as a new aquarist and have been using them ever since. Overall, I have been very happy with them.The Emperor Power aquarium filters offer low-profile style with hinged lids and easy-to-install hang on tank set-up. Filter cartridges are simple to replace as needed. The powerful motor will keep the filter running smoothly to polish aquarium water to its sparkling best.
These are very quiet aquarium filters. Even after 10 years the Emperor 280 is still very quiet. The Emperor 400 has developed a bit of a rattle, but it is not very loud and is not bothersome. They are made of heavy plastic and are very durable.There are only the 2 models of this filter and both are made for larger aquariums. The Emperor 280 is for aquariums up to 50 gallons and the Emperor 400 is for aquariums up to 90 gallons. I have been using my 280 on a 60 gallon aquarium for years with no issues.Watch this video to learn how to assemble your new Marineland filter! The Emperor filter has a unique two pump design, which sets it above any other filter in its class. This tank's efficiency and effectiveness can't be matched, making it perfect for any aquarium.
