Product Information

The Fluval external Filter range delivers many practical benefits-including better filtration, less maintenance frequency, faster setup, and quieter operation-all designed to make fishkeeping more enjoyable. Building on the success of Fluval 05 Series filters, these filters provide enhanced functionality and filtration performance to create the cleanest, healthiest aquariums ever.

Supported by an amazing three year guarantee, the Fluval External Filters are a brand that you can trust. The user friendly design includes an easy priming feature, as well as an Aqua-Stop feature that will by use of a lever, cut off the water and allow for easier removal of the filter head for maintenance.

The intelligent design also offers lift-lock clamps that provide easy access to the unit and ribbed, clear hosing that can easily bend without kinking, to provide added versatility.

What's included:

  • Updated rim connector for secure hose connection
  • Full media (see below for individual model specs)
  • New clog free intake strainer
  • Full setup and maintenance guide included on DVD
  • Two part lock clamp
  • Inlet and outlet fittings
  • Ribbed hosing

Keep your filter in perfect working condition with replacement bio foam, foam blocks, polishing pads and pre-filter media. There is also 2 in 1 chemical and mechanical media - Phosphate Remover, Ammonia Remover and Nitrate Remover.

    Wrong filter sent out by Swell. Several emails and photos later and they finally believed me. Had to send back, still awaiting refund as bought from elsewhere in the end.
