Fluval® External 406 Canister Filter
199.99 New Available
Fluval® External 406 Canister Filter is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far great. I if it keeps up I will give 5* Bought the 406 canister from petsmart the other day, brought it home watched the instillation video, red the manual and it was pretty easy to put together and get going. Water quality has already improved just over night. It is very quiet, so much that the tiny air pump that is in the cabinet is a lot louder than the 406. Used a coupon and got this thing for less than 160.00 and picked it up in the store 15 minutes later. Great experience, and would recommend this product. 55 Gallon tank, 5 smaller fish, 11 medium fish, 1 large fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fluval filters I've raised Discus, Africans, Angels and have found the only way to go is with Fluval filtration systems. The canisters are in my opinion the easy to clean and keep the water crystal clear. They trap a significant quantity of impurities keeping the tank clear and if you need to change the water to an Amazon or African quality there is a sleeve to place a water enhancer/modifier. The bottom line it does the job like mother nature would do keeping things clear and clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great for the first 3 months..then the leaks began Worked great for the first few months, the nothing but leaks from the aquastop valve, even the replacement leaked after a couple of months. It doesn't leak from the valve's lower o-rings...it leaks from the lever area so there is no easy fix, just replace it with another leak prone valve.
