Upgrade of popular high performance canister filter boasts enhanced performance and setup ease. Fluval FX6 High Performance Canister Filter makes aquarium fishkeeping easier and more convenient. Astounding 1.5-gallon media capacity filter is powered by an energy-efficient pump with a 935-gph pump output that draws just 43 watts! The result is cleaner and healthier aquarium water while reducing operating costs. Fluval FX6 Canister Filter comes with all the essential filtering media to provide complete 3-stage filtration. No need to purchase additional media for initial startup!
Fluval FX6 High Performance Canister Filter is powered by a more efficient motor, which provides better performance while consuming 10% less electricity than its predecessor, the Fluval FX5. Smart Pump Technology (SPT) ensures optimal filter performance with an electronic circuit board that continually monitors pump performance to deliver powerful output and energy efficiency. SPT 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.
Multistage filter features removable media baskets precision engineered to eliminate water by-pass for efficient filtration. Each media basket is lined with a mechanical 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. For freshwater or marine aquariums up to 400 gallons.
