Fluval

The newly refined Fluval 06 series of aquarium canister filters with new more powerful motor adds extra conveniences to the powerful and flexible Fluval filtration line. Each Fluval Multi-Stage 06 Series Filter adds even more user-friendly features to ensure aquarium filtration is even easier to set up, customize, and maintain. Plus, each filter holds 35-50% more volume than round canisters of similar size and directs filtration through a complex flow path to maximize contact with the filtration media. Features patented Aqua-Stop Valve, multiple filtration baskets, and rim connector assemblies to keep the intake and output hoses in place on your aquarium. Multiple filtration baskets are already packed with the necessary media for mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration. Four distinct sizes - each with increasing flow rates and filter capacities - to suit any small to mid-sized home or commercial aquarium.

Each Fluval Multi-Stage 06 Series Filter minimizes filtration worries with a series of convenient features. Aqua-Stop Valve permits hose disconnects and easy-open, one-motion lock clamps makes routine cleaning and maintenance easy. Added to the ability to customize filtration with multiple, removable media baskets and adjustable flow rates, and you`ve got a canister filter that is convenient, efficient, and very powerful.

Includes: Instant-prime system; single-motion lift-lock clamps; clog-proof intake strainer; dual-layer foam screen; and quick start guide.

Poor quality

First, as points of comparison, I have an Eheim 3e, a filstar, and this that I use on my tanks. This is the worst of the 3. I've had it on the tank for about 4 weeks. For the first 2, it worked great. Then it started to cavitate. I've checked the impeller and found nothing wrong, but it will never run for more than ~5 minutes before it starts rattling severely again. Hence, I've had it off the tank for 2 weeks. Very poorly constructed.

Excellant filter

I bought this for my 36 gall tank and am very happy with it. Been running it know for about 6 weeks. Its extremely quite and easy to clean, though I do it twice a week, its not very dirty. may be to still a light bio load in my tank.

Great product

I had a lot of problems with my red sea simmer introducing bubbles from under the box on top, and cloudy water from dirty water to micro bubbles the second day of the filter being hooked up I had crystal clear water! Nitrites are ZERO and Nitrates well within range. Very quiet and allows me to make the water change by simply removing the input/outut and letting the water drain into buckets. When complete I just shut of the flow and reconnect to the filter!!!! Great Product. Mike

GREAT PRODUCT

I purchased the 406 canister filter shortly after they were released. I have 3 405's and the improvement of the 406 over the 405 is dramatic. More powerful, less noise, simpler design and an improved priming system. Same configuration as a 405, with the weak points vastly improved. There are parts that wear out over time, but replacement parts are available. Mine has been running for 2 years with media replacement the only thing I have had to do. Good return on investment and is truly trouble free. If you are looking for a good solid canister filter that is not over done with electronic gadgets, dependable operation, hassle free set-up, comes w/DVD and comes with everything you need to install and operate the filter, I would suggest this product. Manufacturer has a good track record and excellent customer service.
