Here is an unboxing video of the Fluval 406 Canister Filter where I also give my first impressions/review.
Filter was purchased at Petco for $219 before tax. Over all I am impressed with it although the tubing that came with this doesn’t seem to be very durable and you have to separate it into two parts yourself.
The Media filter compartments come with all the media (charcoal and bacteria pellets) needed for filtration so it is plug in and go. The waste debris filters are also washable and reusable. It can also be used for salt water and fresh water aquariums.
I purchased the 100 US Gal filter for my 40 gallon tank as it will give me stronger filtration and also usable when I upgrade to a bigger tank.
Comes with a three year warranty so even though the price is a little high, you know you are getting a working filter for three years.
Any questions on this filter, please leave a comment. I will have a set up and full working review soon. Have a nice day!
