FX6 / FX5 External Filter (Freshwater) Upgrade Kit
Kit suitable for Fluval FX5 and FX6 canister filters - also suitable for sumps.
Foams for outer parts of trays should be cut to 37.5cm (14.75") x 9cm (3.5"). You will be able to cut 3 foams from each 17" x 11" coarse and medium foam so as this kit has 2 x coarse and 2 x medium foams that gives you enough for all 3 trays.
The fine pads can be carefully ripped to a suitable thickness then cut to size for the top tray - you only need one fine pad on top of the top tray.

Purchased BIO-HOME ultimate feb 2018 within 5 months my tank achieved full cycle. When you replace fluval foams with this upgrade it does make sense because the poop is getting broke down in 2 stages as apposed to only 1 with the original foams that came with filter. So this means that less poop is hitting polishing pad greatly improving flow rate and less time stripping down cleaning your filter i clean my filter every 8-10 weeks. pondguru is right if you have a fluval fx filter and you pimp your filter as in his videos remove the 2 red half inch media baskets because my flow has greatly improved since i took these out putting less strain on impellar and motor. Well worth the money to up-grade it will pay you back dividends in long haul.
