What is the Fluval FX6 External Filter?

The Fluval FX6 External Filter is a large capacity, multi-stage external canister filter system suitable for aquariums up to 1500 Litres in volume. With outstanding features designed to make aquarium fishkeeping easier and more convenient than ever, the FX6 high-performance canister filter includes a self-priming system which processes and circulates 2130 litres of water every hour. The Fluval FX6 External Filter produces cleaner and healthier results than most other external fish tank filters.

What filter media do I need for my Fluval FX6 External Filter?

Filter media can be placed in a removable stack of media baskets at the heart of the Fluval FX6 External Filter to offer multistage filtration. The baskets are precision-engineered to eliminate water by-pass, making filtration more efficient. Only foam filter blocks are included, however additional media can be bought at a great price from Swell UK. Keep your FX6 in perfect working order with replacement filter foam, bio foam, carbon filter foam, water polishing pads and pre-filter media.

How do the filter baskets in the Fluval FX6 External Filter work?

The filter media baskets in the Fluval FX6 External Filter 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. This is what separates the Fluval FX6 External Filter from other aquarium external filters as it allows you to tailor filter circulation to your fish tank. Each basket is also 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.

What is Smart Pump Technology?

The Fluval FX6 aquarium filter 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, maximum filtration volume and energy efficiency. The Smart Pump Technology 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.
