Guide Review - Fluval G Series Canister Product Review

The Fluval G Series Canister Filter is the newest, high tech filtration system for aquariums. The G Series Canisters are available in 2 sizes (G3 & G6), both of which feature an LED electronic monitoring system that shows pump performance, conductivity and aquarium water temperature.

The compartmentalized three-stage filtration streamlines canister filter maintenance. Both mechanical and chemical filter cartridges are independently accessible thanks to the top-load cartridge design. High-capacity pleated mechanical filter cartridge traps significantly more suspended debris than conventional mechanical filter foam. The reusable chemical filter cartridge can be filled with your choice of chemical filter media or you can purchase an extra Chemical Cartridge to treat water with specialized media of your choice for short durations.

Large-capacity biological media baskets (2 for .6 lbs. in the G3, 3 for 1.0 lbs. in the G6) house Fluval G Bio-nodes, a high-porosity ceramic bio-media.

Each G3 and G6 Filter includes: Mechanical prefilter cartridge, chemical cartridge filled with Fluval activated carbon, G-Nodes, 10 ft hosing, 2 cross rim assemblies, 2 rim attachments, telescopic intake with intake strainer, 1 output nozzle and extension and 2 spray bar attachments, AquaStop system, quick start guide, and instruction manual on CD.

Optional (purchased separately) cartridges include: Fine Pre-Filter Cartridge, Phosphate Cartridge, Nitrate Cartridge, Tri-Ex Cartridge and the Reusable Chemical Cartridge.
