The Fluval FX6 External Filter is a large capacity, multi-stage external canister filter system suitable for aquariums to 1500 Litres.

With outstanding features designed to make aquarium fishkeeping easier and more convenient than ever, FX6 includes a self-priming system with a super capacity canister filter which processes and circulates 2130 litres (563 US gallons) of water every hour it has an astounding media capacity that produces cleaner and healthier results.

Filtering material can easily be placed in a removable stack of media baskets which is at the heart of Fluval's multistage filtration. The baskets are precision-engineered to eliminate water by-pass, making filtration more efficient. Only foam filter blocks are included, any additional media can be bought at a great price from Swell UK.

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.

Fluval FX6 also features Smart Pump Technology, which provides optimal filter performance. This advanced technological feature employs an electronic circuit board that continually monitors the pump. Impeller speed and force are constantly measured to ensure powerful output and energy efficiency.

    Fluval FX6 Game Changer

    Wow, what a cracking bit of kit, easily put together and fulfils everything I required. I now have a 350l tank with great flow, brilliant water quality and some very happy fish. Well worth the price tag as lesser filters just don't come up to the mark.
