Variety of Features

360 Degree Viewing

The world's first 3D water cube aquarium, the 6 gallon Fluval EDGE can be filled to the very brim thanks to the sealed glass top, providing high definition viewing from every angle. The sealed top reduces evaporation for less maintenance and a large, hidden aperture allows oxygen exchange to keep fish healthy. A floating base design gives the set a very small footprint for easy placement and lends the aquarium a clean, contemporary look.

Compact Design

The EDGE is extremely versatile due to its compact proportions. It makes a beautiful addition to any interior where space may be limited and in low light areas, it brings light and life to dull corners and uninteresting walls.

Hidden High Quality Filtration

Fluval EDGE comes complete with a powerful and efficient 3 stage filter which remains completely hidden, preserving the striking aquarium design. Featuring mechanical, chemical and biological filtration for clear, healthy water, the EDGE filter is much like Hagen's AquaClear clip on filter range, which has a long history of proven performance.

An Aquarium to Compliment Your Lifestyle

Designed to complement modern decor, EDGE is available in three stylish colors- matt black, pewter and metallic 'Murano' orange. The striking design and contemporary wrap around stand will create a talking point in your home for years to come.

Easy Assembly and Maintenance

Fluval EDGE takes only seconds to assemble and the perforated, removable cover effectively dissipates lamp heat, avoids moisture, and allows easy access to the filter's lift out media trays. A wide range of EDGE cleaning accessories are also available to make cleaning simple.

Versatile Design

The Fluval EDGE aquarium has been designed for today's lifestyle with a contoured casing module and a 6-sided glass tank. Whether in an ultra-modern or more traditional setting, this versatile aquarium adds the 'designer' look to almost any room in the home. The gentle flow of water and glow of the lighting produce a beautiful shimmering effect reminiscent to sunlight on open water.

Visually Stunning
A powerful, retractable halogen lighting system creates a visually stunning display. The two 10 watt bulbs create a bright, directional light source for a beautiful 'shimmer' effect across your entire aquatic scene.

Economical and Quiet

EDGE is quiet, powerful and easy to use, while still being extremely economical due to the low voltage halogen bulbs.

Display Anywhere in Your Home
The Fluval EDGE has been designed to be filled to the top. The action of the filter provides all the oxygen exchange fish need. This means that the aquarium can be positioned at a lower level and viewed clearly from above through the glass top, unhindered by equipment or trailing wires.

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.

Color Name: Pewter Verified Purchase
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.
