This makes me happy.
So I was coming home from getting gas today, and when I turned in my neighborhood, I saw a garage sale. I did what EVERYBODY does, and glaced at what was there. The word "Marineland" caught my eye. IMMEDIATLY I pulled over and stopped. I get out, and low and behold, there was a BRAND NEW Penguin 350, still in the box, with the attatchments still sealed in the bag. $20 was all they wanted, so I got it.
Now, I have 2 big filters instead of 1 big filter and 3 small ones. When I get paid again, I am going to get another 350, so I will have AWESOME filtration.
A question though. There is a little grey flap on the intake tube. Should I open it, or just leave it closed?Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

Thats the mid-level strainer, I think. It pulls the higher "floaties" or wastes out of the water. I leave it open on mine. Figured it can't hurt anything.
If thats what your talking about...

i dont use my middle piece. i placed my 2 HOB's so that one has a intake towards the top (biowheel), and one towards the bottom (aquatech)
lol, i have the same filter on the 55g, and it splashes so much my glass covers literally have algae growing on them
