by Julia123 Very good
I have had this filter for almost a month now and it's great. The water is crystal clear. I have two goldfish and this filter has the power to keep the water so clear no matter what they do.
It took a few days for the water to clear up when I first hooked it up. I think it has something to do with bacteria. So don't get discouraged on the first day when you don't see improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fedfire A major upgrade from power head filters
I purchased the Fluval 306 to upgrade my filtration system on my 36 gallon bow front cichkid tank. I was using two bio wheel filters which worked very well but I got tired of the filter changes so often. The 306 is overkill for my tank but you can gate down the valve if you need to. This filter pump is amazingly powerful and extremely quiet. I have it in the cabinet under the tank and I can't even hear it. You can also see debris get sucked into the strainer and it disappears instantly. Within 24 hours, my tank was cleaner than it ever has been. Absolutely crystal clear. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by n919 Awesome!
I have had this 306 for over a year and I would have to say it works the best then any other canister filter that I have owned. Since then, I now have 4 Fluval canister filters on all 4 of my tanks. Ranging form the 106 to the 406. I know the price is a bit higher then some other filters but worth the cost!

by EvilleMike Amazing filter so far
I bought my first one to add to my 75 to accompany my Aquaclear 110 and cascade filters. This was supper easy to set up and prime and was dead silent. I was so impressed, I went and bought a second a week later to replace my 110. I had to take the second one back because the housing leaked out the bottom, but the replacement was as perfect as the first one I bought.
My only complaint is the hoses and the returns. I'm not a fan of them. I would like to see a spray bar option and vinyl hoses instead of the plastic ones they put with them. Black intakes instead of the clear ones would be nice too.
All of that aside, I would gladly recommend these filters to anyone. You can't go wrong with Fluval.
