This includes the multi-stage filtration with precision engineered media baskets stacked to eliminate any water to by-pass filtration. These media baskets hold a total of 5.9 L (1.5 gallons) of media, can be stacked for a customizable combination of layers best suited for your aquarium, and are lined with a foam insert for effective mechanical pre-filtering. And finally, the FX6 features a patented Smart Pump Technology that holds the key to optimal filter performance.

Smart Pump Technology contains a electronic circuit board to constantly monitor the pump, while continually measuring impeller speed and force to ensure powerful output and energy efficiency. This technology also features a self-starting mechanism for easy set up and will pause the pump to evacuate trapped air build up on a 12-hour cycle system. All to guarantee the best filtration efficiency at all times. Measures 53 cm (21") in height - fits under most fresh and saltwater aquariums.
