Customer Questions & Answers for
Eclipse® Filtration and Lighting Systems

Marineland offers three sizes of the Eclipse Lighting and Filtration Systems, which fit most manufacturers' aquariums on the market today. The unique top of the tank hood effectively hides the light source and the filtration, and allows the aquarium to be placed closer to a wall than with a typical hang-on-the-back filter. The high-performance Eclipse Rite-Size Filter Cartridge and Marineland BIO-Wheel provide total mechanical, chemical and biological filtration, ensuring 100% water-to-media contact for excellent water quality. The specially selected fluorescent daylight lamp promotes plant growth, and brings out the brilliant natural colors of ornamental fish. The Eclipse systems are easy to setup, easy to operate, and easy to maintain. The top-mounted Eclipse filtration affords ample space for added accessories like heaters or air stones.

Question

I have an Eclipse hood and need a new bio-wheel

Darn dog ate the BIO-wheel and I need a new one but not sure what size. I don't see any model # anywhere on the hood. The hood is 12"x23.5" and the space the wheel slides into is about 5"x2.5". It takes an H replacement filter. Thanks!

If it takes an H replacement filter then you have the Eclipse 3. You can buy replacement bio wheels on their web site, along with many other web sites. Just google it. The bio wheels are standard sizes with most of their filter systems, you could even measure across where it sits in the hood and go to your local pet store and measure one to match up size and purchase it. Not too complicated.

Use the locator on this site enter your zip or of a bigger city nearby. Call the non franchise pet stores they may still have a few.

EBay has a system one but it's 90 plus 40 for shipping. Check craigslist.

There are none; they are discontinued and totally unavailable. There may be a mom and pop store somewhere with one in stock, but all major retailers are out.

One possibility would be www.amads.com.

Try Amazon for your cartridges. They're authentic. Or you can make your own fairly easily with filter padding and the old plastic back of a cartridge.

The system 2 is for a 2 gallon tank. The Eclipse 2 (PFE2) on the other hand, is 24" x 12" and commonly is used on 20 gallon high and 55 gallon standard tanks. The hoods themselves are discontinued, but the filter cartridges are still available. The correct filter cartridges for the PFE2 is the Rite-Size H and the item # is PA0139.

Do you have a Marineland Eclipse 12 hood/light replacement?

The light electrical unit on the hood split because of the heat from the lamp, then shorted out. I have had this unit for a few years and do not want to buy a new one. So, I need the hood with the light and electrical unit attached. Please let me know if you carry this part. Thanks. Christina

What kind of light is in your hood? If it's just a bulb, try rotating it a bit to see if it needs to be seated in a little better. If that doesn't work, call our customer care line at 800-322-1266 to get a replacement.

Sorry to hear that, how long have you had the tank? If it's under warranty, we'll replace it. Please call customer service to arrange for a replacement, 800.322.1266. If it's older that 2 years, you can replace the pump but buying parts online.

Hello Jim, need some more information before I can help. Sounds like it might be an impeller issue with the rattling. We don't sell a bow front Eclipse so just want to make sure that it is our tank. The Eclipse tanks pretty much have everything "under the hood" so is just a matter of lifting up the front of the hood. Can you send some more information and I can try to help more specifically? Thanks.

We do not make a T5 light that will work with the 37 Gallon tank, however, we do have a couple of other options. The "Double Bright" LED (item #32991 ) or the Reef Capable LED (item #33001) will fit it. We also have a high output light with a combination of T5, LED and HID bulbs that can be used with this tank, though it will need to be suspended above the aquarium, vs. being placed directly on the frame, due to the center brace in the tank. Also, this hight output light is 36" long, and will extend beyond the end of the tank, but will give you the most light output. The item number for the high output light is 32981.

Thank you,

Question

For Dana: follow up info on rattling motor

Dana, the unit has this written on it: "Pump for PFES 12" The hood is definitely Eclipse because it says so on the front. It is bowed in shape, in the front, as is the tank. We bought it about 4 yrs ago. The tank might be 12 gals rather than 26. Thanks.
