You will be amazed by the clarity of the water, post filtration. While our Fluval FX6 review for a gallon aquarium the filter was able to clean the tanks murky water, eliminating even the tiniest contaminant. Fluval has designed the FX6 and the FX4 to accommodate more filtration media using less space.
Fluval FX6 has 6 media compartments, while the FX4 has 5 media compartments making enough room for the media. And with a variety of stock media that comes with the filter, you do not have to get additional media. Fix the media baskets with the T-Bar and place it in the Canister. Close the lid after adding water in the Canister. Adding water is to help in Priming the filter and secure it with Easy grip locking system.
If required, cut the inlets and outlet connectors to the required length. Attach the intake strainer and output nozzles, place them in the Aquarium using the suction cups.
And the setup is done!!! Switch on the Filter and you good to go. Priming the Filter Fluval has ensured that the priming remains effortless and less of a nightmare. Wondering How? With a smart pump technology, the Filter takes care of the priming by itself. Just add water to the Filter while closing the lid and start the Filter.
The Filter would start, then run for approximately 2 minutes and shut down automatically remove air bubbles and then automatically restart. The Fluval FX6 and FX4 have the precise-engineered bearing installed that ensures you do not hear even a slightest of hmm. And what about the Bypass and Leakage? With the Leak Proof design of the media basket, leakage is avoided ensuring there is no bypass. Also, the Smart PumpTM checks for trapped air and is evacuated if any, every 12 hours.
This makes the filter Energy Efficient, for running at maximum power only when required. To protect the filter from damage, a safety feature is included that would turn off the motor whenever impeller is impeded.
The tank water was cloudy with added impurities and bio-waste to test the actual filtration efficiency of the filter.
The filter did an exceptional job in cleaning the impurities and other waste making the water crystal clear.
Though with the added impurities and water being very cloudy the filtration time was more than normal. But later in the week filtration was carried out normally.
As Figure 1 indicated, the filter has 6 filtration stages to ensure optimal filtration of your tank. Fluval FX6 Specs:.
