Bought a used tank and it came with a marineland 350 magnum. I have only used HOB's. I am very concerned that it will leak and I will come home to a disaster. Has anyone had a problem with these?fish happens

No, i have never had one but i have talked to many people and they said they are ok. If you are really worried i would replace the hoses on them..

as long as the main o-ring is in good condition and placed properly it wont leak i have one on my 55 gallon and it works great
one thing to look out for , when you clean the filter and you take the top off that ring can fall off if you dont notice it yur in for a flood LOL i know it happened to me when i first got mine

I've even been using a bit of vaseline on my fluvals seal ring just to help seal since I heard they were known for leaking sometimes. But yeah, I've never had problems.
Something you could try.

ive used dozens of canister filters and i have yet for one to leak on me. if the O-ring is good, shouldnt be a issue
