Fluval G6 External Aquarium Filter
Aquarium filters have never been objects of desire. You would never show one off to your friends, or linger longingly in the aquatics store, working out how you could get your hands on one. Those clunky, ugly boxes have always been functional, never desirable…until now. Introducing the FLUVAL G Series, a filter so revolutionary in every way that it is destined to change the way filters are designed…forever. CAN A FILTER REALLY BE BEAUTIFUL?
Until now, the answer would have to be "NO"…but that was before Fluval G6. With its sumptuous gloss black finish, aluminum detailing and cool blue backlit display, the Fluval G Series will change people's perceptions for good. No longer will the humble filter need to be hidden away in a cabinet. Fluval G demands to be out on display as the ultimate aquarists' accessory.
With the Fluval G6, there's never a need for manual siphoning. After plugging the unit in, just push the easy priming button all the way down 2‐3 times in fast sequence. As water is drawn through the intake hosing, it fills the canister pushing air out of its way and making its way back into the aquarium through the output nozzles or optional spray bars.
With its proprietary technology the AquaStop system makes maintenance easy, allowing you to stop the water flow by simply bringing the AquaStop valve lever into an upright position. By lifting the AquaStop release lever, the complete assembly can be conveniently removed without separating the hosing. The AquaStop valve lever can also be used to regulate the water flow with no harm to the motor or its components.
Chrome plated cast ZAMA levers provide a strong and secure seal and do not corrode or oxidize even when in contact with salt water. They are made of Zamak which provides superior strength and dimensional stability over time.
The Fluval G6 silicone gasket provides superior sealing and long term reliability. The inherent properties such as low friction, resistance to temperatures, extreme softness and superior adhesion and flexibility guarantee long term sealing.
TELESCOPIC INTAKE AND STRAINER / RIM ATTACHMENT / SPRAY NOZZLES OR SPRAY BARS
Water is drawn through the multi‐lamella intake strainer, designed to repel debris and resist the build‐up of solids that would normally impede water flow. Additional intake strainers can be attached to extend the intake screen surface. Alternatively, the “Y” connector can be used for maximum placement versatility. The intake system, attached to the telescopic intake tube, can be adjusted to fit most aquarium depths. The output nozzles or spray bars are fitted with ball joints. When connected to the “Y” connector, they can be rotated and individually adjusted to send multiple streams of clean water toward all corners of the aquarium, thus ensuring maximum circulation. For extra quick setup, the innovative rim attachments easily slide over any aquarium rim up to 32 mm and/or 1.25” in width and securely hold the intake and output assemblies in place.
The Fluval G6 is powered by an advanced three component drive system, providing power, long term reliability with virtually zero noise and high performance. The powerful yet compact synchronized dual drive coil is controlled by one of two Fluval G microprocessors which continuously monitor and adjust start speed, impeller direction, power absorption and performance. The ferrite impeller spins on an aluminum oxide ceramic impeller shaft and is fitted with a high temperature performance polymer thrust bearing, offering exceptional wear resistant properties. With unique high-quality components, advanced control system and low energy consumption the Fluval G6 drive pumps deliver unparalleled performance and durability.
From the drive pump to the interactive 8000 pixel LCD panel, all functional aspects and monitoring features of the Fluval G6 external aquarium filter operational systems are powered by a Microchip Flash Microcontroller with NanoWatt XLP™ Technology. In addition to all the other advanced features that will make life easier for passionate fish keepers, this application is used for the first time in aquarium filtration, resulting in low power consumption, high flow rates and quiet operation.
The inner filter chamber is made from fiberglass re-enforced polymer, designed to withstand pressures of 15PSI, far outweighing the normal operational standards and resulting in a leak-proof and noise reducing casing. The inner chamber is housed within an ABS polymer enclosure, thus further improving the sound buffering effect and providing the appealing high gloss finish that is so unique to the G Series.
