Inspired by architectural styling, the Fluval Edge Aquarium is a three-dimensional, 6-gallon water cube that provides a unique visual effect capturing emotion and serenity of an aquarium within a contemporary setting. The sealed glass top provides high-definition viewing and reduces evaporation for less maintenance. The Fluval Edge Aquariums retractable halogen lighting system is suitable for aquatic plants and casts a unique shimmering effect on the water. Two 10-watt low-voltage halogen bulbs provide economical lighting. The lighting fixture swivels up and out of the way to provide easy access to the filter and the aquarium. The Fluval Edge Aquarium comes equipped with a removable cover for easy aquarium and filter access. The overhead ventilation grill dissipates lamp heat and avoids moisture. The powerful Fluval Edge filter with 3-stage filtration is easy to use and ensures clear water and a healthy environment. The hang-on Edge filter is quiet, hidden from view, powerful and easy to use. The constant cascade from the filter oxygenates water and 3-stage filtration ensures a clear and healthy environment. The mechanical foam filter traps particles and debris. The carbon insert provides chemical filtration, absorbing odors, discolorations and impurities. The BioMax insert expands biological capacity to encourage growth of friendly bacteria. Thanks to the attached base/backing/canopy, the filter is completely hidden from view but is easily accessible and easy to maintain by removing the top canopy. The Fluval Edge Aquarium is extremely versatile, perfect for any home or office. Its compact proportions make it a beautiful addition to any interior decor where space may be limited. In low-light areas the aquarium glows like a jewel, bringing light and life to dull or uninteresting walls.
