In review, we make sure that the FX6 is a beast. The water volume is huge and the coarse sponge pre-filtration is at least three times larger than the 406 and also the flow rates are higher. With the two nozzles directing water into more of the tank actually, the FX6 has a larger flow rate, a larger volume, a much larger coarse sponge capacity, but about the same biomedia capacity as the 406.
