Rated 2 out of 5 by ed2fay gassett leaks on top of canaster
After several uses the gasket on top of my canister started to leak. I called customer serviceand they sent me a new gasket and some silicon sealer. I used it and it worked for several uses but has started to leak again. This problem gets old after while

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sindeon Awesome filter saved my tank
I have a C360 on my 75 gallon tank. It replaced two hang on back filters that I had before. I can not believe the quality that the tank has looked since I switched to this filter. I also can not believe how silent this filter is. I have the filter less than five feet away from my computer I am at and can not hear it at all. I sometimes when I walk by the tank have to check that its still working because of how quite it is. This combined with how wonderfully clean it has kept my tank, I can not recommend this filter enough. If you are reading this and debating this filter or any other filter ---- GRAB THIS ONE. You will not regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mar02io The C-220 is a very good filter.
The only problem is very poor written documentation

I love the idea and how attractive the canister is. But it does not seal tight enough and I too had problems with the disconnect not sealing the hoses, I thought I would order a seal kit only to find out they are out of stock, I wonder why. I have other Marine filters that work great just a little messy to service so I purchased c-160 in hopes my children could start servicing their tanks but that won't happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Francisdegruchy 2 years and going great
I've had my c530 now more than 2 years. It replaced an Eheim 2017, about 25 years old, and while a bit noisier, i've grown used to it, but man! this thing has capacity and current! I never need to vacuum the gravel any more! thanks for the high flow!

Rated 1 out of 5 by OnceABeliever With Enough time it will leak all over the floors.
I had purchased 2 C-360 canisters. After a cleaning or power failures, the pump head will leak through the head. I contact marineland and they sent replacement pumps. But after replacing with the new canisters filter, they continue to leak after 7-8 months. Don't buy these filters if you plan on having a tank longer than a year or if you care about your hard wood floors or carpets. They will leak and Marineland knows it that is why they will sent you a new canister every time you complain because the filter heads are faulty. It is not just me I had a friend buy one and the same happened to him!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by GregW Buyer beware... do not buy this filter
I"m going to have to just go buy a different brand. This filter out of the box does not work. It blows micro bubbles into the tank and after a weekend of re-fitting the tubes etc... I'm done with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Edczuch This C-360 is the worst filter I have ever purchased!
I currently have 7 tanks running, downsized from 12. They range in size from a 150 gal. African Frontosa tank down to 15 gal. guppy tanks. Over the years I have owned many types and sizes of filters. I purchased the Marineland C-360 as additional filter for my 90 gal South American tank. What a mistake! After the first clean it leaked around the handles and anything I tried would not fix this, so i let it sit. After a few weeks I tried it again and got it to seal, great I thought. Wrong. After the second clean I have not been able to get it to seal, so now it just sits there under the tank. So far this has been a big waste of money on a filter that should be more reliable, but after reading the fourm's I can see that I am not alone. Next time I make a purchase like this I will keep my receipt.
