Am I missing something? Help Please.

Does anyone out there own a Marineland Bio-wheel power filter Pen. 100? If so, did you have any issues with assembly? (Its not the model shown in the picture, but the "up to 20 gal." model shown lower on the page to the right.)

I bought this today and am trying to set up a new tank, and I just CAN NOT get this thing to work. I have followed the very vague instructions but feel like I must be missing something. If anyone out there has any experience with this filter, your advice would be much appreciated!

Here is the tank I am working on- It's about 1/2 done. Getting a glass lid made for it from a glass shop! I know I still need to get my air pump higher, shelves are in the process. On my new fishie (Leaning towards "Raven" for the name) who will go in it arrives in about 2 weeks!!

I don't know what the directions say (never bothered to read them setting up my filters) but I've had the same problem with one, I just put water into it and it started right up.
(: Hope that helps

I have the 10 gallon filter of this. What part our you having trouble with?
If you are having the same problem I did, the filter intake is too long? It comes with two tubes, you just leave out the middle tube. Connect the shield tube to the tube that comes out of the filter.
