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.
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.

Great filters have upgraded to fx6 from fx4 was very happy with this filter but wanted the extra media capacity of the fx6 this was the only reason for the upgrade but i am very pleased with the performance of these filters great for the water changes and maintaince so if you are thinking of a new filter would recomend you look at these filters
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
