Fluval 406 review

Hagen Fluval 106-406 is a range of filters which do not differ from each other by their design or functionality, they are different only by a tank size where they can be installed.

Fluval 106, 206, 306, 406 – are external canister filters of the 6th generation produced by Canadian company Hagen for saltwater and freshwater tanks sized from 25 gallons to 100 gallons.

Fluval have been holding leading market positions for many years, namely the 6th generation has an obvious advantage over its predecessors due to the number of improvements it has.

They allow to insure complete 3 staged water filtration (biological, chemical and mechanical). At that the 6th generation filters are less power consuming, their capacity is 15% higher than their predecessors have.

All spare parts and hoses needed to install the filter come in a set together with these filters.

They are tender and attentive to their owners and mindlessly brave when it comes to protection of their home and loved ones.
