MarineLand BioWheel 55 Gallon Fish Tank – Review & Specs

The Marineland BioWheel LED aquarium kit is an all in one package designed to quickly get you up and running with either a freshwater or saltwater setup. At 55 gallons, this is a tank that doesn’t require a ton of room. It’s 48” wide, 13” long and 18.5” high, so it will fit most homes or apartments with ease.

The use of LED lights is a different approach that saves both energy and maintenance costs over the long run. LEDs last much longer than other types of bulbs, so you won’t have to worry about bulb changes.

This is a full kit containing everything you need short of the actual fish. It even includes a water conditioner and fish food. Just unbox and setup, add your water and wait 24 hours for the temperature to regulate and for the conditioner to do its job. After that, you’re ready to add fish.

Included in the box is the aquarium itself, the hood with integrated LED lighting, a powerful Penguin 150 BioWheel filter, and the electrical adapter to power this equipment. The water climate is controlled by an integrated heater with a visible thermometer so you can manually confirm the conditions.

Due to its convenient size, this tank doesn’t necessarily require the use of a full stand. It can be supported by a sturdy table or another piece of furniture. To help ensure your experience is a success, they include a one year warranty (which also covers the lights – something rare in a non-LED setup).

  1. Actually you are totally wrong. If you do things correctly you can have fish 12 hrs later. You are going to have to use prime for awhile but my tank cycled in a few days. Here’s why. Forget all the chemicals I used every day. The one biggest trick is to use water from another tank, decorations and I had a lot, Using a lot of gravel from another tank as well as a extra filter. Now the other tank still had plenty of good bacteria as it was a large tank. But if you have all that going on and using chemicals like enzyme and quick start, pristine, Prime, stablity your fish or most will be fine. Keeping the lights dim for a few days just checking everything. But yes I cycled my tank more than once with my practice which is not difficult.
