History of Fluval Edge Aquarium

First off, we need to start with the company that introduced to the aquarium hobby. The Hagen Company was started more than 50 years ago by Rolf C. Hagen. It started as a family company and grew to become the largest privately owned manufacturer and distributor of pet products. Despite their company becoming one of the largest distributor of pet products, they have retained their original dedication to produce quality products for many kinds of pets.

Hagen has developed many products under the Fluval name for many decades. Fluval developed their first canister filter in 1982 and since then, they have become on the trusted figures in the aquarium business.

Their products are innovative but simple, giving them great potential for use. One of their most creative designs is the Fluval Edge.

What makes Fluval Edge Aquarium special?

If you’ve always wanted an aquarium but you have limited space, you need an aquarium design that fits into this bill. You can opt for a simple design but most of the simpler designs look too plain and boring. Or have an ugly euro brace around it’s corners and sloppy seams. Luckily, there is a design that is both unique and small – the Fluval Edge Aquarium.

The Fluval Edge aquarium kit comes with 6 sided sealed glass aquarium that is filled with LED lighting. The filter system is hidden entirely but it is there doing its job of filtering the aquarium. It is an easy aquarium to get into especially if you are just starting out.

Modern design

The modern design of this aquarium is great for many homes of today. A lot of homes today have that simplistic design that is mostly composed of 2 color tones with minimal accents in between. The clear and minimalistic design of this aquarium can complement any modern house design.

Disadvantages

Even if there are many benefits to this nano tank from Fluval, it still comes with a few downsides. Although the size of the aquarium offers great advantage in its placement in your home, the dimension of the tank sort of limits the kinds of fish you can keep in it.

You need to consider what kind and how large the fish is before you decide which ones to get. You need to make sure that the species of your choice will fit comfortably in the tank. You also need to consider the growth of the fish. Some fish will only be 1 inch when you purchase them but will grow up to 6 inches in a span of several months.

You would want nano fish or dwarf shrimp to keep the bio-load in line. If you want ideas on what fishes you can get from Fluval aquarium, you can search the internet and list some of the best choice and make your choice from there. Bettas and other Gourami type first (this is fish that gulp for air at the surface) are NOT ideal for the Fluval Edge.

I'm not the greatest writer in the world but I like to educate people on how to setup and maintain a beautiful shrimp tank that friends and family will be envious about. It's a great hobby and takes a bit of knowledge but once you get it down - it seriously beats looking at a screensaver of fishes!
