Introducing the FX2 High Performance Canister Filter by Hagen, the ultimate solution for maintaining a healthy and clean aquarium environment. With a multi-stage filter that pumps out 475 US Gal / 1800 L of water per hour, this filter ensures that your aquarium is thoroughly filtered and circulated.

The Smart Pump™ technology, an advanced microchip that continuously monitors and optimizes pump performance, ensures that your filter is always working at its best. The self-starting feature means that all you have to do is add water, plug it in, and the Smart Pump™ will take care of the rest. The filter also has an automatic air evacuation feature, which removes trapped air every 12 hours to ensure maximum efficiency.

The FX2 Canister Filter comes with removable, stackable media baskets that eliminate water bypass and hold a total of 1 US Gal / 3.9 L of media. All filter media is included, including mechanical, chemical, and biological media, so you have everything you need to get started right out of the box. The AquaStop valves with their leak-proof Click-Fit attachment system make it easy to install and maintain the filter, and the valves are positioned at a convenient 45-degree angle for easy rotation.

The FX2 Canister Filter also has an anti-clog, telescopic strainer that ensures continuous water flow, and the multi-directional output nozzles can be fully adjusted to create customized water flows. The rubberized feet help to reduce noise and vibration, making this filter perfect for use in any aquarium.

In addition to its impressive performance, the FX2 Canister Filter is also designed to be compact and easy to store. It measures the same height as the FX4 filter, but is 15% smaller overall, making it a perfect fit for standard-sized cabinetry. And with its Italian-made construction, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality product that will last for years to come.

Whether you have a freshwater or saltwater aquarium, the FX2 High Performance Canister Filter by Hagen is the perfect choice for maintaining a healthy and clean environment. With its advanced technology, easy maintenance, and compact design, this filter is sure to become an essential part of your aquarium setup.
