    My media container and filter cartridge is floating up in the filter box sometimes lifting the lid off the box; am I doing something wrong or does this just happen; I have a Marineland Emperor 280 that is just what came with the tank when purchased. Is this an ok filter?

    That's weird. I don't have and Emperor but the Penguins I have are basically the same. Yours is the higher priced model. They are great filters IMO. There are two slots in mine that hold the filter cartridge. Are you sure you have it in the slots correctly? I don't even use the replacement cartridges. I just put in some blue bonded bad and that doesn't even float away. I'm stumped... maybe you have a super powerful filter :confused:

    That's never happened to me with the Emperors. I'd suggest giving the cartridge a good rinse in some tank water and see if that helps.
