  1. Ok guy's, well i have many fluval fx5's in service and currently just the 1 fluval fx6 + 1 brand new version still in box (after winning comp from AOA) : ) My fluval FX6 is nothing but a nightmare, its roughly 6months old and has been opened to clean / remove&replace purigen 3 times and everytime its been a drama, THIS TIME, the canister would not start, so i made a huge mess unplugging the beast to re check everything was OK filled back up plugged in and yep still NOT RUNNING I took it apart AGAIN, removed the motor/impeller to find it was clear of any grime & certainly did not have any gravel/media/sand or such in it, I then put it back together again, turned it on, and HOORAY it kicked into life BUT and its a big BUT, this bloody motor is working but now buzzing along.....noisy as all heck. thats my rant.
  2. Gday. Just bought and installed a new fx6 filter. Installed it with stock media but was wondering if anyone can suggest extra media to add and why??? Cheers
  3. Hello all, I purchased a FX6 off eBay, long story short. The filter was very loud and kept turning off and on every 2 minutes, I got a full refund and got to keep the filter. I spoke to Fluval and they recommended replacing the motor. Has anyone experienced the same problem or know a place in Australia that sells a new motor for a good price? Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hey my fx6 keeps turning itself off and on and i don't know why. I cleaned the impeller (it didn't need it) i have no idea, any help would be much appreciated Thanks.
  5. I have two fluval fx6 I my 8ft. just recently shifted and had to cut the old bulkheads out and replace with new ones,problem being the new bulkheads are 20mm longer and kinks the pipes to the filter. short of the long can you buy straight taps for an fx6 or do you have to use the 85 degree ones supplied?

  10. My current cannister busted last night and require a new ASAP ! If anyone that's bought one or seen one somewhere well priced can they please help me out thankyou guys
  11. iv had a fx5 that whent bad on me so I looked into getting a new motor for it as it would be cheaper than a new pump . since the release of fx6 I wondered if a 6 can be put on a 5 ,so whent down to [MENTION=2383]ageofaquariums[/MENTION] and ben ordered me a new motor . so after getting home to day I just had to see if it would fit ,so here are the pics and info the boxes label was a good sign that it would work out of box 1 new fx6 motor side by side ,you can see very different size housings the smaller size housing makes it a lot simpler to screw up all done in under 2 min going strong 1 more small change and we are done so yes fx6 motor on to a old fx5 can be done very eazy, thanks AoA
  12. Been reading through this great forum and seen the fluval fx5 has some problems, so am wondering if they have fixed These problems with the fx6. Will be using it on a 480 litre aquarium and don't have enough to spend on getting two filters at this stage Stocking with African cichlids which are only about 5 centimetres long at the moment. Thankyou in advance
