Is their a true difference in these filters? On the surface they seem the same, except the Emp. has higher ratings at 400. I've heard complaints about Penguins being loud.
advice?

Would the Penguin 350 or Emp. 400 be sufficient for a 30inch tall 70 gallon FW settup?

The Emporer has more filter surface area and has adjustable spay bars for the bio-wheel. Penguins do make noise. I have a Penguin 200 on my 15 Gal. On my 70Gal tank I have an Emporer 400 and a H.O.T 250 /w (micron filter). Both are quiet and work great.

I have an Emperor 400 on my 55 gallon tank. I love it...I have four of the cartridges in place...it is very quiet. This is my first tank so I haven't tried any other filter types but I would say that this filter is worth the money...
