    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go big or go crazy Are you starting to hate your smelly turtle in their dingy dirty tank? Then get one of these, it seemed like with prior filters it was 3 days until I could smell him and 5 days max before he was swimming in a cesspool, 3 days in and no smell and the water looks like you could drink it. The tank is noticeably cleaner as well. The only problem is that I can see the mess on the wall behind the tank now. The fx6 is being used with a 125gallon tank 3/4 filled, home to a 9" RES.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Beast! That is the FX6!~ I've been in the process of setting up my dream aquarium and did about 6 months of research on what sort of filter system I wanted to eventually set up reading all the pros and cons and complaints of pretty much all the current filter systems out there and always came back to the FX6 being the most well made and efficient in design. I have some health issues ( lifting wise ) so I wanted something that really did a lot of the work for me and gave me the most options in both filtration and the easiest maintenance and efficiency. I've watched the price range on this product between $369.00 to $339.00 online at several sites and jumped on the PetSmart sale price of $305.00 and it being December and Christmas coupons becoming available I was able to add the 15% off friends and family coupon to my price taking off another 79.90 bringing my cost down to around $280.00 which is a heck of a deal on this product if you have been shopping for this you could not beat this price from PetSmart and I jumped on the chance to get this. This filter is a beast! Fluval pretty much thought of everything when it comes to design on this and it is worth the price on what you get back on filtration for your system. I have large scale goldfish and they have a lot of waste so I went the extra route to get the most filter gives it 10 fold. You cannot go wrong with this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic filter!!!!! This is an outstanding filter. I chose the FX6 over the FX4 because of the cost at my local PetSmart. I was able to get the filter on sale for $239. I have it install in my 65 gallon fresh water tank along with a twelve year old Fluval 304. My tank water is crystal clear. I also figured it will save me money in long run by not having to change the media as often as other types of filters. You only have to change the carbon pad, rinse the BIOMAX and clean the mechanical foam once a month. Then check and clean the rest of the canister every three months. It does require replacing the Magnetic impeller and motor seal ring yearly. I would highly recommend this filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filter ever!! I bought this filter on Black Friday my only regret is I should've bought two. This thing is amazing. I've been running 2 eheim 2217's for 5 years and my water has never been so clear.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst filter I've ever owned. I'm running this on a 75 gallon tank. Before a week goes by the tank begins to stink. Stinks so bad the entire house smells. Not a little smell, but as if something has died. My little Ehiem which is over 10 years old, has never done this. I simply don't understand why the water smells so bad. Hopefully the warranty is good, because this has to go. Been running since Christmas. What good is a giant filter if you have to drain 75+ gallons and clean out the filter every 5 days?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Turtle Tank Filter I have tried many different filters over the years in my 150 gallon aquarium with 5 aquatic turtles. Everything from decorative in tank turtle filters to pond filters and even a swimming pool filter. Some did OK, while others failed miserably. I saw the FX6 at petsmart and did some research. Most people were happy with it. I gave it a try and now 6 months later I am happy I did. It is a big filter and a little heavy and bulky but that's ok. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the media the filter comes with is not adequate. You will need to buy additional carbon filter pads and polishing pads. I took the advice of someone on youtube and added polyester fiber fill between the polishing pads. Just cheap fiberfill from the craft store. I crammed in as much as I could and it made a big difference. I now go 4-5 months between filter changes and the water stays clear.

    Fluval FX-6 is rated for 600+ gallons per hour. Most reviewers have a larger tank 100+ gallons. I like the features on this filter, but is it there such a thing as over-filtration. I have a 60 Gallon tank and researching canister filters. Thanks.

    I just installed this filter in my 65 gallon tank and it's been working great. I also have a twelve year old Fluval 305 I use with it and have not had any issues with the fish. You can adjust the direction of the flow of water but not the speed.
