FX Filtration range to cater to smaller aquariums.

The FX2, the new addition to this range measures at 34 x 34 x 42 cm and runs at 27W, for a pump output of 1800L/hour, Ideal for aquariums of up to 750L.

The Fluval FX2 Canister Filter is designed for hobbyists who want the trademark power of the FX series in a smaller, more affordable package. Featuring patented self-priming Smart Pump™ technology, this filter ensures that its owners will spend more time enjoying their aquarium, and less time maintaining it.

Multi-stage Filtration

As with all Fluval filters, water flows through each media stage in proper order to ensure thorough cleaning. This process is more efficient and effective than some competitive filters, which force water through all stages in one pass. The Fluval FX2 filter features 2 inset red baskets for greater media capacity and flexibility, for up to 5 stages of filtration.

Patented Fluval Smart Pump™ Technology

Smart Pump™ employs an electronic circuit board to continually monitor the pump. It will constantly measure impeller speed and force to optimise output, and automatically pause and allow trapped air to escape every 12 hours, critical to maintain maximum filtration efficiency. The impeller also has less mechanical joints, creating less noise.

Engineered for your convenience

From the Aquastop click-fit valves for a leak-free, fast assembly, to twin output nozzles for multi-directional, customised water currents, the FX2 filter comes with a plethora of features to make your life easier. Its versatile, telescopic anti-clog strainer allows for continuous water flow intake, and the rubber feet ensure a whisper-quiet operation.

Fluval FX2 Rippled Bio-Foam

Designed specifically for the smaller Fluval FX2 performance canister filters, Bio-Foam captures large particles and debris for effective mechanical filtration. While the FX2 Bio-Foam is thinner than traditional Bio-Foam, its rippled pattern offers more surface area to effectively trap large debris and increase biological activity, enhancing the biological filtration process.
