Will the wheel is suppose to turn, that is the bio-filter for them. As far as a good HOB filter.... I prefer Aquaclear and Whispers HOB filters.

Or you could just remove the wheel all together and put some cermaric rings in the filter itself for the bio-filter.

I had a bio wheel on the little 5 gallon I keep in the bedroom. The wheel is a great idea, but bad execution. Mine wouldn't spin either. I did what DJ suggested and removed the wheel and added rings. Cheap fix and it works great now.

Bought the Aquaclear today 10-30 gallon one so far looks good.Only thing that puzzles me is the sponge is on the bottom then carbon in middle and bio media on top.So that means i have to remove the carbon and media everytime i need to rinse the sponge lol.because the sponge is the only one i rinse clean right?
