Fluval FX-6


Does anyone know when the FX-6 will be hitting our shores ? I know it just came out across the pond but im wondering how long before we get our hands on it ?

thanks for the review link!

As I was reading through the copious spelling mistakes and poor grammar, I was struggling to still give the authors credence toward the end. After all, mastery of the english language has nothing to do with aquarist expertise.

Then they hit you with this little nugget, immediately after filling the aquarium and turning on the brand new filters for the first time;
Quote:
Within a few hours our aquarium was crystal clear! All ready for fish!
Can anybody say "cycle"?

But, alas, the pictures saved the day. This is indeed impressive. I suppose I'll believe that they know what they're doing and just dumbed down the article to stay focused on its purpose of reviewing the filter.

Kensfish has it in stock. Is it me or does it look smaller than an FX-5?

From what i can see it:

FX5= 924gph / 5.9L media capacity
FX6= 925gph / 5.9L media capacity

I think i will see other reviews before jumping on this filter. The good news is that with this one coming out, it may drive the FX5 prices down :-)
