Fluval FX6 is a high performance canister filter with many outstanding features designed to make aquarium fishkeeping easier and more convenient than ever. This super capacity yet compact canister filter processes and circulates 2130 litres (563 US gallons) of water every hour and 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. 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. 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. Only 54 cm (21") in height, Fluval FX6 fits under most aquariums.

Performance of these filters are awesome am happy .
This is my second fx6 that I have ordered from valuepetSupplies. Love this filter system with its hi filtration. It keeps my African cichlid tank crystal clear.
I needed more filtration for my 125 gallon fresh water tank which is overstocked. I read the reviews on the Fluval FX6 and was very impressed. For about 2 weeks I continued to read reviews, and compare canister filters. I finally decided I would try the the Fluval and after another week of research I found the best deal on it at Value Pet Supplies. In fact they were $36.00 better than any price I could find. The price was right, the shipping was fast, and the set-up of the FX6 was easy. In fact the hardest part of set-up was rinsing the filter media. The system cleared my somewhat cloudy 125 in 3 days. I will caution that at start-up of the filter, after it runs for a minute, it purges the air from it. Be careful because the air comes out like a volcano and it boiled over the back of my tank. I think you can minimize this by adding more water to the filter during the initial priming set-up. The instructions call for 2 gallons to be added to the filter. 2 gallons will only partially fill the filter which leaves room for a lot of air. You may also try lowering your water level in your tank some before start-up. All in all the Fluval FX 6 is a great, quiet filter. I would buy it again!
