Product Description

Color: Burnt Orange

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.

It looks beautiful as a planted aquarium.
I didn't even realize it was an issue till the 4th month, and I clean my tank once every two weeks, but I have no working lights now.

I've had my Fluval Edge tank for almost 10 months now. I've owned a 29 gal and 10 gal tank before so I've had decent experience with freshwater tanks (not saltwater). I recently moved and wanted to get a small fish tank (4 gal at most) to add to my room, but my boyfriend talked me into getting the Fluval Edge because I could actually have a decent aquarium. We both liked the modern look of the tank too. I have 2 real wood logs, 2 live plants, 3 glolite tetras, 3 full-grown ghost shrimp (about 3" in length), 2 small suckerfish (they're almost smaller than the ghost shrimp), and about 2" in gravel bottom.

Now that it's been almost 10 months, I still love my tank and think every penny I spent on it was worth it. There are some funny quirks that serious aquarist would rather skip, but none of the quirks have deterred me from my love of the tank.

-I love the modern look. I like how my cords and pump are all hidden and out of view. I hate buying those fake aquarium backings to hide everything.

-I like the 360 view. I like being able to look into my tank from the top and clearly see through to the bottom. It helps to keep track of my fish too.

-I like how it's a sturdy glass. Hagen didn't cheap on the glass construction. When you pick it up (it's a little heavy), you know you have a quality glass tank.

-Halogen lights give off a nice heat that actually helps heat the tank. I live in a place that has an average yearly temperature of about 67. So the extra heat from the lights help keep my tank warm.

-Halogen lights make my fish/plants look fine. I've had no "bleaching" issues with the lights. The fish retain their color just fine and I know what they look like when they are bleached (my fish were PALE when I moved).

Aesthetics are important. I dislike traditional aquariums and wanted a product that concealed the pump, heater, cords, etc. I chose the Edge over the BioOrb because it's made from real glass, doesn't obligate me to use cheesy synthetic plants, and is well designed. I love the appearance of the product, but there are a few functional flaws you need to be aware of if you decide to purchase. First, its two halogen lights are insufficient. They effectively light up the center of the aquarium, but the edges go dark. This limits the ability to use aquatic plants that traditionally don't require CO2. The Edge does not come with a heater, however, the power cord can easily be run through the same conduit that conceals the pump. Do not purchase African Frogs as there is no air at the top (which is also one of it's better qualities). The box also says the aquarium is ideal for goldfish, but nothing could be further from the truth. Goldfish require large aquariums and produce a considerable amount of waste. They also grow quite quickly. It's difficult to clean the Edge, so go the low maintenance route. I added a heater, a few low-light aquatic plants, and some neons. No issues. The pump is more than adequate for the size of the aquarium. In fact, you may need to adjust the power to 50% as it's a little strong for fish. I highly recommend this product if you don't a mind a little maintenance and a limited ability to grow plants.

Fluval (Hagen)has an almost winner here. When set up it looks stunning, the plants grow right out the top of the tank even with no CO2 and with the standard lighting, but! just try to maintain this tank and you will shortly begin looking for another tank. The provided access port is so small it is near impossible to clean the substrate, or work with plants. Catching a determined fast shrimp will have you looking for glass cutters! I hope that when Hagen creates a successor to this tank they find a way to allow useble access.

I have owned several 10 gal aquariums, and always love them for a little while and then get tired of the maintenance. I wanted something easy to take care of, and cool looking. I got both with this.

Looks: Without argument, this is the coolest looking aquarium I have ever seen (outside of celebrity homes). It has clean lines, no nasty residue showing all over it, and small enough to put almost anywhere. The only mechanics showing will be the tube in the back of the tank that can be covers by the Fluval bamboo wall. The top of the aquarium is glass touching water so you can look in it from all angles. The top covers the filter and surface of the water, so it looks like it is just a cube of water. The filter hangs on the back of the tank, concealed in a cover with the power cord coming out of the bottom so you don't see any of this.

The design is amazing, and don't be concerned about the fish health as long as you put fish in it that don't need a lot of room, or wont outgrow it. I will talk about that below.

Getting it started: They give you very detailed instructions on how to start your fluval edge. I also watched a YouTube video of a professional setting it up to make sure I wasn't going to kill my first batch of fish. The filter system is pretty easy to set up and once it is running, it is VERY QUIET. I can't hear mine unless I lean close and listen. The most important thing to me was making it look great. Because the opening is so small, you can't fit big decorations in it. I went with a small stone Chinese lantern, the Fluval Bamboo wall, a small fake bamboo plant, and 3 small real plants. (If you are new to real plants I recommend them, and will talk about them as well.
