  1. Fluval 06 Series Canister Filters... Why do the replacement foam pads look cheaper???

    Freshwater Aquarium Equipment
    I am running a Fluval 206 on my 29 Gallon tank and a 306 on my 56 Gallon tank. I have had both for about 8 months and they were a huge upgrade from the Marineland HOB with the Biowheels. However maintainance has been more cumbersome and the Aquastop valves are Very fragile. The 206 had been...
  2. Fluval 305 Filter Stopped Working

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    Hi all I just took my fluval 305 external filter off for cleaning and put it back together. Meanwhile I also noticed that the pipes were a bit too long for my tank so I shortened them to be exact fit (no slack). I filled the canister with water until I could see it from the hoses. I connected...

  4. Fish filter frustration

    Freshwater Aquarium Equipment

  7. Fluval 405 vs aquaclear 110

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm looking to add filtration to my 160 gallon tank and I'm on a tight budget. Through my research, I've found that the fluval 405 cycles 340 gph and the aquaclear cycles 500 gph. That doesn't seem right though because I would obviously assume that the canister filter is more efficient. The...

  10. Fluval x04 vs x05 series?

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I'm going to be setting my 55 gal up for turtles sometime in the next few months, and I don't want to filter it with my Eheim 2217 due to the fact that it's a pain in the butt to clean. Right now I keep a sponge pre-filter on it for fish and nothing but biological media in it, but I'll want the...
