The Fluval FX2 High Performance Canister Filter delivers unparalleled filtration for freshwater and marine aquariums up to 175 gallons. Engineered to deal with the cleanest and clearest water, this super-capacity canister filter is packed with innovative features designed to enhance performance and simplify operation. The Fluval FX2 comes equipped with a powerful 450 gph pump that operates at a very modest 27 watts of electricity.Incoming water passes through a telescopic strainer to prevent clogging, and filtered water is returned to the aquarium via a dual, multi-directional output nozzle. To verify optimal performance, the FX2 features patented Smart Pump Technology (SPT). This self-regulating system repeatedly monitors the pump, measuring impeller force and speed to deal with powerful output, super-quiet operation, and energy-efficiency. The included filter media is housed in several stackable baskets that may be fully customized to suit the needs of your aquarium. The baskets are engineered to do away with bypass, and every is lined with a foam insert for effective mechanical pre-filtering. Instant-release t-handles allow easy lifting and separation of the media baskets for simple maintenance and media changes. The included Click-Fit AquaStop valves allow quick setup and leak-free maintenance. A self-starting feature activates the FX2 without the need for priming, and purges unwanted air that may have entered the filter all over setup. Each 12 hours, the pump shuts down automatically and the air evacuation process is repeated To verify uncompromising performance. The Fluval FX2 boasts a high level of performance, in the most space-saving design to date.
