Fluvals external canister filters have been engineered to provide better filtration, quicker maintenance and quieter operation with the new 06 series having additional updates to make this impressive range of external aquarium filters even better.
The new features include a detachable aqua stop valve which incorporates an adjustable flow control and simply clicks onto the lid of the filter. This valve enables very quick and clean detachment of the filter hoses making cleaning easy. Fluval external filters have a self priming system and two solid clamps that snap into place to connect or disconnect the filter head from the bucket containing the media. The rectangular shape of the filter means it holds 30 – 50% more media than the traditionally shaped canisters and allows better water distribution flows through the canister giving increased filter efficiency. The 06 Filter range includes three trays to house mechanical, chemical and biological filter media so these medias can be cleaned independently of each other.
The following video demonstrates setting up the filter and many of the new features.
