It was very easy to set up and the directions are very clear. You don't even need to prime it! It has kept our tank fairly clear and is nearly silent. I love the added spout at the bottom for water changes, it makes them so easy! It has a very easy to understand instruction page that has step by step pictures of what to do to drain water from the tank/ canister. It also has the ability to siphon back in water through the same spout/hose. No more lifting heavy water buckets to refill the tank. I have been impressed by other Fluval filters I own (3 406's) and expect this one to do the same.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-07-10</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-07-10" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="185075636"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Cuzz</span> from <span itemprop="name">Awesome filter</span> <span itemprop="description">I cleaned my tank using the auxiliary port on my Fluval FX4, it was probably the easiest tank cleaning I have ever done. Was able to add and remove water through the filter instead of taking it out of the top of the tank. I got the optional gravel vac for it, and didn't worry about removing too much water while cleaning the gravel since it puts the water back into the tank after running it through a separate strainer. The filter it self was pretty easy to clean. This has to be the best filter I've ever used.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-01-25</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-01-25" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="183278742"> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Sfin53</span> from <span itemprop="name">reef</span> <span itemprop="description">I bought this after my fluval 406 cracked. Setup was straight forward. Plug it and go. After a minute the unit shuts down burps all the air and starts again. Media baskets are large and can be completely customized.

I did not realize that it had a water changing port on it! I love that it has that! I&rsquo;ve been using a power water pump to get new water into my tank since I got my big tank a couple years ago. Now I don&rsquo;t have to worry about tripping my timer power strip when I do water changes (used that strip to plug in the water pump each time)! Wish all canisters had a water changing port! It also self primes (just make sure and have water in it before plugging it in) which is another plus that most other canisters don&rsquo;t have. The only downsides I have with it are: 1) you have to cut the one piece of tubing they give you into two hoses for the intake and outake. I just used a pair of scissors, so it&rsquo;s not hard but just inconvenient. 2) the tube meant for changing water and using the water changer port, is too short. I just used some tubing from my Python water changing tubes instead. 3) I think they could&rsquo;ve made better attachments for where the tubes go over the rim of the tank. The tubes clip into the rim clip that clips over the rim...why not just have a hard U-shaped tube the flexible tube attatches to? Anyways, overall it&rsquo;s a great canister and I&rsquo;ve noticed that my water looks clearer already too! The perks outweigh the little inconveniences I meantioned above!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2018-11-01</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2018-11-01" /> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-reviewsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-reviews--> <!--begin-pagination--> <ul id="bvseo-paginationSection"> <li class="bvseo-paginationItem"><a class="bvseo-paginationLink" href="https://www.petsmart.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-PetSmart-Site/default/Product-Show?pid=5254729&bvrrp=Main_Site-en_US/reviews/product/2/37685.htm">Fluval&reg; FX4 Canister Filter Reviews - page 2</a></li> </ul> <!--end-pagination--> <ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">y_2020, m_2, d_23, h_14</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_bulk, prod_bvrr, vn_bulk_3.0.5</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasreviews, tv_0, tr_13</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_37685, prod, sort_[SortEntry(order=HELPFULNESS, direction=DESCENDING), SortEntry(order=POSITIVE_FEEDBACK, direction=DESCENDING), SortEntry(order=SUBMISSION_TIME, direction=DESCENDING)]</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_petsmart</li> </ul> <!--end-bvseo-reviews--> <ul id="BVSEOSDK_meta" style="display: none !important;"> <li data-bvseo="sdk">bvseo_sdk, dw_cartridge, 18.2.0, p_sdk_3.2.0</li> <li data-bvseo="sp_mt">CLOUD, getReviews, 131ms</li> <li data-bvseo="ct_st">reviews, product</li> </ul>
