Works great, filter is so quiet, cost is higher that it should be.

I bought the Fluval G6 from Dr Foster and Smith and could not be more please with the customer service! I love this canister filter and the ease of maintenance. I have a few extra filters and it take me about 5min to change out and clean up. These filters work as advertised to too! I have not had a low flow problem yet, even with the Fine water polisher. Both type of pre filter are reusable, so buy an extra one for the Dr. You'll be happy you did!
Now I spend 15 to 20min every 14 days on filter canister maintenance. Before I bought the G6, I would spend nearly an hour to hour and half doing canister maintenance. Now I spend less time on tank maintenance and more time on aqua-scaping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer My slime algae is gone in a day!
I was having terrible trouble with slime algae. I ordered a phosphate tester and it showed my phosphates were .25ppm which isn't very high but evidently high enough. I put the fluval cartridge in my g3 and the next morning 80% of the slime was gone. I love that I can just pop it in for a day here and there as needed. I ordered a nitrate reducer too and hope it works as well. IT WORKS AND WORKS QUICK. Plus it's reusable

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishguy32 This filter system is amazing!!!
I purchased five G6 filters for all of my Freshwater systems and I absolutely love them!! I have owned many different canister filters in the past but this line of filters is in my opinion is the best. I have noticed that if you read any negative reviews for this filter 99 percent of them are due to the fact that the end user is either not setting the filter up correctly of they aren't maintaining it correctly. All in all I would definitely recommend this filter to anyone!!
