I do not use HOB's but I had heard in other places that the penguin 350 tend to do this. There is a mod out there somewhere on how to quieten (sp) it.


I don't understand your last sentence? Like a modification you can do or something you can buy?

correct it is a modifaction that can be done, I can't tell where I had seen it but it is out there in a forum.

What exactly is it doing? Rummbling sound..what.

if you go to google and type in marineland penguin 350 noisy you might hit on what you're looking for.

because I like to help...


Something I found for you

"Email Marineland and they will send you a replacement impeller and impeller housing. However, the replacement parts didn't fix the noise problem on mine. I found another person who had the same problem and he fixed it by sanding down the magnet on the impeller. I tried sanding mine down and eventually was able to get the noise to stop. I sanded it just by wrapping a piece of sandpaper around the magnet and then turning it. "

I have some updates. When I got to my dad's today I discovered an emperor 400 on the back and the penguin 350 in the garbage. I assume it will be a christmas present but I don't know. Also, the plants came in today. Is it OK to put them in the tank without any livestock yet? For now they are in my dad's tank but I put some moss in mine, knowing it will be alright.

Sure it is...just make sure you have fitration and heater. You will find it a lot easier since there isnt any livestock to uproot your plants.
