If you were playing with a vpip of 17 at FR, then I don't think this is very tight. At 6max it would be classed as tight.
OP - The main differences from FR to playing 6 max is aggression and loosening up. The blinds vcome round more often so playing uber nitty at 6max wont be that beneficial. Sure you can win playing that style at micro stakes but you will have to loosen up your range a little to adjust somewhat FR. At FR your utg opening range maybe JJ+, AK. Whereas at 6max it maybe something like 78s, 89s TJs, KJs, AJ+ 22+. As you get to the c/o and btn then your range will widen considerably.
It is widely regarded that b/c the action is so loose at 6max the your winrate can be somewhat better than FR, however there are some FR experts on here that would justifybly dispute that.
Take some time to think about it b/c unless you can adjust to 6max's loose style, where variance maybe considerably higher than FR, then it may not be worth it just yet.
