Description

The Fluval Power Filter is designed to keep your aquarium water sparkling clean with five full stages of filtration. The extensive five-stage filter system includes two mechanical, one chemical and two biological filter chambers, while most filters only have one of each type. This filter is designed to trap large and fine debris and remove dangerous toxins all while cultivating good bacteria for a healthy environment for your finned friends. The mechanical filtration is performed by a thick poly/foam that traps debris. During the chemical stage, activated carbon removes toxins from the water. In the final biological stages, a Bio-Screen pad promotes healthy bacterial growth and contributes to fast and effective nitrification.

Key Benefits
  • Extensive 5 stage filter helps to produce clean and clear water conditions and a healthy environment for aquarium life to thrive.
  • Provides maximum surface area and optimum dwell times in all stages of the filtration process.
  • Features 2 stage mechanical filtration that effectively traps large and fine debris, reducing harmful ammonia and phosphate build up by removing fish waste, uneaten food, and other organic materials.
  • Activated carbon for chemical filtration to effectively remove dangerous toxins while the Bio-Screen pad provides encourages the growth of good bacteria.
  • The patented refiltration control system lets you slow down the water output, creating a gentle flow to protect delicate fish and plants.

    Great filter

    By Hector on Jan 17, 2021

    So far I’ve gotten 2 of these filters and I love them both. I bought the 50 gallon one at Christmas time for my 40 gallon goldfish tank and it made a world of difference in my tank. I just got a 55 gallon and wanted to get another one of these for it since the other has been doing so well. I got the 70 gallon filter this time. It arrived quickly, and was very easy to set up. It circulates the water really well and is doing a great job so far. My only complaint is that it’s a little noisy, but I can easily get over that. I have the one on my 40 gallon in my bedroom and it’s not loud enough to keep me up but you can definitely still hear it.

    well worth the price

    By Dave on Oct 26, 2020

    The Fluval C3 filter has been running now for several weeks w/o any problems. I bought it to replace an old H.O.T. Magnum canister filter which still works (cannot get many parts any more). The filter is designed and engineered very well, and I expect it to last for many years. It works best when it is leveled both front-to-back and side-to-side. My only criticism is that the plastic seems to be rather thin. I have an old AquaClear 200 that has been running on the same tank for >18 years, and it is much sturdier, with plastic ~2 times as thick.

    Broken but got free replacement

    By Reilly on Jan 21, 2021

    I had this for 9 months until it randomly stopped working but chewy was able to send me a new one. Other than that works well.

    1 star, would not recommend

    By 1star on Dec 8, 2020

    I followed all the directions to the tee, even watched the Fluval videos, and bought higher grade filters and my water is STILL cloudy. I wasted over $40 on this. It is loud as well. Terrible product.

    Don’t waste your money

    By Monte77 on Oct 11, 2020

    I purchased this filter in March 2020. In Apr during my weekly tank maintenance the filter pump stopped working and when it did work made a squealing sound. I called Fluval who replaced the magnet and propeller. They were out of stock so I had to wait until June for replacement. After replacing the item it worked for another month before same issue. Called back and Fluval wanted me to buy a replacement motor before they would honor their 2 year warranty. I would have to send back the old one before they would credit me the money. I also emailed Fluval explaining the issue and they sent out a motor pin, which I replaced when it arrived (Aug). Now Oct and motor acting up again. SAVE YOUR MONEY.

    Worked great until it didn’t

    By VMcE on Jan 17, 2021

    Motor quit after less than 2 months. Difficult to clean. I had algae growth in the tubes because they were translucent.

    Noisy In Less Than A Month

    By EdwardtheShihTzu on Jul 28, 2020

    I was so hopeful when I ordered three of these filters. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Two started being noisy...in just under a month of use. This is why I don't hold out hope for the third. I've had many filters over 50 years so I know how to check for and solve most issues. Nothing worked. And the water level is fine so that's not the problem and that's not the noise. If these were in tanks across the room it would be semi tolerable. But they are right next to where I sit on the sofa. On the plus side and just enough to change stars from one to two, they are easy filters to set up and seem to work well. So if yours remain quiet I am sure you will be satisfied.

    Quiet powerhouse. Happily surprised.

    By Firefgtr31 on Jul 18, 2020

    Bought 2 C4s for my 29 gallon. You can never have enough filtration. Set up was easy. Has adjustable flow control. One I am running carbon and one I am running all biomax. People say these filters are extremely loud. I have 2 in one tank next to my bed and you can't notice them except for a little water trickle. I recently had a marineland penguin 400 and it was so loud and sounded like a waterfall. With the C4 you can even have the water down several inches from the output and the water flow hitting the top is pretty much silent. I am extremely happy with my purchase. I even bought 2 more to replace other filters. Very impressed,
