The only filter of its kind with a patented design, self-priming, bottom-mounted motor, the Magnum Canister Filter provides the ultimate in easy setup and restart capability. Magnum is two filters in one: it converts from continuous duty to water polishing, and all Magnums now come complete with a Carbon/Media Container and Water Polishing Micron Cartridge. Water enters the canister, surrounds the media, and flows through rather than around it. No bypass ensures total filtration. All Magnum canister filters we carry have a certified flow rate of 350 gph, making them the ideal choice for aquariums up to 100 gallons. 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
Magnum Canister Filters convert easily and quickly from continuous duty filtration to quick-clean water polishing... and back again. A Magnum silently does the heavy duty work of two complete filtration systems and delivers total water-to-media contact... no bypass. No-compromise technology and highest quality materials ensure unit strength, durability and trouble-free operation.
Magnum 350 Deluxe
Includes: Carbon/Media Container, Water-Polishing Micron Cartridge, Rite-Size Foam Sleeve, Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon, Double Quick-Disconnect Valves, Flexi-Brush, Intake Extension Tube.
Magnum 350 PRO System
The 3-in-1 Magnum 350 PRO System filtration package delivers optimum mechanical, chemical, and patented BIO-Wheel PRO 60 classic wet/dry biological filtration.
*IMPORTANT: Because all water circulation in a canister system must first pass through the filter media, extra care must be taken to ensure that clogged media does not reduce the efficiency of the filter. Carbon needs changing each month – sooner if it is no longer effectively removing discoloration or odor from aquarium water.
NEVER use soap, abrasives or any other cleaning agent on or around filter or aquarium. Clean with water unless otherwise instructed. Never attempt to open the Motor Housing or submerged Motor Assembly.
Marineland Magnum 350 Review:
Next to the Eheim Classic filters, these are the "grand daddy" of Aquarium canister filters as they've been in manufacture, virtually unchanged, for decades. Like the Eheim classics, their beauty is in the simplicity of the design. I personally have a Magnum 350 that has been in constant use for approaching 20 years (with no parts replacement). I have another Magnum 350, purchased a few years back, that is identical to the one purchased 20 years ago.
Unlike the Eheim Classics, these filters are rarely recommended due to their size (lack of media volume), although with Simple Modifications and use of the biowheels (in the Pro models) they make excellent, reliable to an extreme, filters.
For mechanical filters, if using the Micron cartridge, they can't be beat. So if nothing else, they make great water polishing filters.
Personally, I use mine as secondary filters, modifed for biofiltration, although historically I have used them as standalone (solo) filtration on tanks up to 55 gallons.
