Marineland Magnum....can't even put it together the instructions are so lame.Using the micro filter is covered in 2 sentences.All I can say is my filstar blows this hunk of junk away.With filstar you open box add media attach tubing and turn on.With Magnum you need to assemble the parts and hope you have it the right way.Which apperently after 2 hours I don't.

Hehe I agree about the Filstar. The plastic tubings are even color coded, so you know by color which are the inlet and outlet parts. Doesn't get much simpler! :mrgreen:

You guys are serious? The pictures tell you what you need to do--no different than the Filstars. I personally have never had a problem with them.

No wonder I couldn't get it to work.It was missing the rubber ring that seals the top.I took it back and got my money then went and bought a vortex.Now my tank looks so clean the fish are just floating on air.Finally after 1 month my green water is defeated.
