Marineland HOT Magnum® Canister Filters

HOT (Hang On Tank) Magnum is an efficient, powerful, compact canister filter that is lightweight enough to hang directly on the back of your aquarium. Because it is a Magnum, it comes feature-packed with the ability to convert with ease from a continuous duty mechanical and chemical utility filter to a water polishing filter with micron filtration capability. Comes complete with a Carbon/Media Container and Water Polishing Micron Cartridge.

REVIEW
I bought this two of these filters used, one worked perfect out the gates. The other had impeller noise, I took it apart added a lil vegetable oil to the impeller magnet assembly and bills no more noise. When I clean them you can really tell they're doing the job. One is on a planted tank the other ...Read More

GREAT FILTER!

REVIEW
I've had my first h.o.t magnum since 1994 and it is still running like a champ on my 45 gallon fresh. Can't believe they have been around that long! I bought another one a few years back for when I've got my hands wet in my 65 gallon sps reef tank. It polishes the water up in no time! No leaks! Grea...Read More

HOT Magnum

REVIEW
As advertised. Had one for over 10 years and then it started sounding noisy even after cleaning the motor apparatus. New unit is quiet and has several improvements, like a diffuser outlet nozzle to name just one. Was mailed and received in a timely manner. Great experience from Customer Service

Poorly Designed

REVIEW
I've had this filter for a few years, and never liked the way it's made. It's a pain to open it to change media. You have to work at it to get the seals lined up so that it wont leak. And you have to fill the cartridge with a funnel to avoid spilling media everywhere. I also do not think the water i...Read More

Crap

REVIEW
The H.O.T Magnum is a very poor filter. The D-Ring and other seals and gaskets are poor fittings and quickly loose a seal leaking air into the system. Several times I would come home from work and have microbubbles all over my reef tank. I gave up trying to fix the problem and purchased a new Eheim.
