Rated 3 out of 5 by fishfinder no carbon, missing purge valve, and tuff to open
I previously had a marine land canister filter and it never worked well so i thought i would try fluval. When i opened up the box i noticed the purge valve was missing and there was no carbon. It was also tuff to get the lid open because off the locknuts. Iam taking it back to get one with a purge valve that was suppose to be with it and to purchase some carbon, other than these few issues i think it should work well. Just be carefull when you cut the hoses.

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 Kalahara 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!
