Fluval FX6 External Filter is a powerhouse of filtration aimed at large aquariums of up to 1500 litres. The filter can be used for saltwater or freshwater aquariums but is particularly popular with cichlid keepers due to its high turnover and large filter capacity. The Fluval FX6 External Filter is easy to install and maintain and its automated priming has proved a massive selling point. Incredibly cheap to run with a power consumption of only 41 watts, quite remarkable considering the massive 3500 litre per hour turnover. There is little noise from this goliath as well and it also self purges any air from its own system to maintain the level of silence. the Fluval FX6 External Filter is supplied with all necessary media and pipe work so should be up and running in no time.

The Fluval FX6 External Filter might well look like R2D2‘s latest fling but no it is indeed a filter. It might be odd to look at but people love these and they fly of the shelf. Bomb proof too, they never come back! Whilst the Fluval FX6 won’t win a beauty contest in comes does come packed with tech. It’s cheap to run at only 41 watts. It also bleeds trapped air twice a day. Brains as well, it features a built in micro chip to keep it at it’s peak. Priming, just add water and turn it on.

Fluval FX6 Filter also has the power.

Yes, that too, output is a whopping 3500lph no slouch there then. In some instances, the output of the filter is too high. However, using the Aquastop valves it’s easy to set the flow to suit the specific requirement of any aquarium. The high output comes into its own for tanks containing large cichlids or messy predatory fish species. We think that FX6 must be the cheapest and easiest way to filter large aquariums. Saying that though the filter is not made from cheap materials quite the opposite the plastics are quality and all for a great price. Is It Good Value? Yes, we think so the Fluval FX6 comes with all you need and for to filter large even mucky fish tanks for a very low price. see more info.
