The Fluval FX6 circulates and filters 3500 litres of water an hour and has an astounding filter media capacity that produces the cleanest and healthiest results ever.

Filtering media can easily be placed in a removable stack of media baskets which is at the heart of Fluval’s multi-stage filtration. The baskets are precision-engineered to eliminate water by-pass, making filtration more efficient.

The baskets can hold a total of 5.9 litres of media and can be stacked in the precise combination of layers that will work best for your aquarium. Each one is lined with a foam insert for effective mechanical pre-filtering. Instant-release T-handles let you lift and separate the baskets quickly and easily, making routine maintenance simpler.

Includes Filtering Media
Even better news, Fluval FX6 comes with all the essential filtering media to provide complete and effective filtration immediately. No need to purchase additional media.

Enhanced Motor Technology
Improving on the Fluval FX5, the FX6 is powered by a more efficient motor, which provides better performance while consuming 10% less electricity than its predecessor.

Intelligent PumpTechnology
Like the FX5, Fluval FX6 also features Smart Pump Technology, an advanced technological feature that continually monitors the pump, constantly measuring impeller speed and force to ensure powerful output and energy efficiency. It also manages the filter’s self-starting feature and evacuates air that may enter or build up within the filtration system. On a 12-hour cycle, the pump will pause and allow trapped air to escape, ensuring the best filtration efficiency at all times.

Easy Installation & Maintenance

Like all previous FX Filters, FX6 comes with all the user-friendly features that have consistently put FX aquarium filters at the head of its class when it comes to installation and maintenance.

Other features such as click-fit AquaStop valves, self-startup, and a purge valve are designed to further enhance the joys and pleasures of the hobby.

Fluval fx6 canister filter.

The beast of filtration, i upgraded from fluval 406 to fx6 because i have a 4x2 standard aquarium va47 aquaoak. This filter is so easy to assemble/disassemble. This filter will not blow small fish out of the water i have small barbs. Has made a big difference to my tank as there is hardly any poop on substrate having 7 catfish especially a green royal plec l191 which do produce a lot of waste. Be careful if you have sand as substrate and position the strainer about 1-2 inches from top of sand because i have learnt that if particles of sand get between the o"ring and canister in the purge valve it could lead to the o"ring splitting and leaking. I simply just release valves and lift filter take outside to clean. This is the best filter i have had up to now in my 40 years of fish keeping.Special thanks to Brent at maidenhead aquatics Gosforth for his 1st class service thanks ian aldridge walsall.

The beast what a great filter i upgraded from a fluval 406 simply because i had a 4x2x2 tank this filter is easy to assemble/disassemble.Will not blow small fish out of your water i have a mixture of barbs. I DO NOT use the drain cap because i have sand as a substrate and have learnt that if sand gets between o"ring and canister on drain cap this will split seal as you open the cap you will hear sand grating between these, thus leading to a leak, luckily has not happened to me. Easy just to pick up and take outside not really heavy. Don"t be put off by this go out and buy this beast, its the best. I have 40 years of fish keeping and so far this filter delivers what i want. Special thanks to Brent at maidenhead aquatics Gosforth for his 1st class service to me.Thanks

Fantastic performance for keeping your tank crystal clear and can easily handle heavy loads .
Only problem is I've had, The outer casing of the pump vibrates and can't handle bags of media , like bags of active carbon or Bionitratex which causes a lots of air in the system even though it has a specially designed pump That is meant to release any trapped there every 12 hours still doesn't cure the problem and comes back within an hour or two , but if run as a basic filter you won't be disappointed .

The Fluval FX6 is designed for tanks up to 1500 litres it circulates and filters 3500 litres of water an hour and has an astounding filter media capacity that produces the cleanest and healthiest results ever, I have this filter installed with my Aqua Oak 160cm 'Wine Rack' Aquarium and Cabinet (AQ160WR) The Fluval FX6 comes with all the essential filtering media to provide complete and effective filtration immediately. No need to purchase additional media. Not really sure why the maintenance dials have been added, just use a calendar.
Other features such as click-fit AquaStop valves, self-startup, and a purge valve are all perfect to help with the setup and maintenance in the future.
The filter pump is not as 'silent' as described, but maybe a sheet of polystyrene or carpet tile under will do the trick.

By far the best filter I have used. Very big and powerful. However you can turn it down a little to fit your needs if you must.
The amount of media it holds is astounding, took much more than I first thought.
Keeps the water crystal clear and is not loud and noisy like some i have used in the past.
If you are looking to upgrade then this is the one to go for.
