I have had several Marineland filters. The ones in the hood on the 5, quit working and there is no way to fix it. You can't just buy another hood to replace it, so you have to buy a separate filter that will fit into the space given by the hood. When the power goes out, they burn out. If you lose your power very often, it will get killed quite quickly. The bio-wheels themselves are fine, the rest of the filter isn't.
