    I found this on an old post from the forum:

    Den marketing Ltd (UK importers of fish r fun) do not have a website.
    These tanks are made by AA aquariums and their website is Here
    you will be asked to install chinese script (every page) just click cancel and you will be ok

    If your after some spares maidenhead do some here:

    http://www.maidenheadaquatics.co.uk/spares...x.php?cPath=470

    Hope this helps.

    ok before I let you have the website, I'll try to explain why it is not fishrfun.com or similar.

    fish r fun is the UK trade name for Den Marketings' imported tanks etc
    Den buy their products direct from the Chinese company Sealand Industrial Co., Ltd.
    who make tanks under the trade name AA.

    so the website is http://www.aa-aquarium.com/

    now this is a Chinese web server but the site is in English, however your computer will ask you
    (on every page) to install Chinese script
    just click cancel and it will be ok, until you go to another page.

    I found a website for them the other week, can't find it right now but I'll have a dig around. The website I found was based in Australia, and didn't have a great deal of info. The AA one Wolfie has found looks more useful :)

    Just dont bother buying any of there tanks.

    Absolutely terrible. I worked in a shop for 3.5 years that stocked them and from the tiny tanks to the bigger 5-6ft fish r fun tanks all either turned up with problems or were brought back within the year with problems. Just before i left the boss stopped stocking them as he was fed up with all the returns.

    I too have worked in a shop that has sold these tanks
    and I have also personally owned the FRF 611 and FRF2100r
    the only problem I had was with the smaller one and that was a faulty powerhead
    the larger one, which I still have, has been no problem whatsoever for me

    there were a lot of ones brought back due to leaks etc but mostly that was in the early days
    on the earlier types. nowadays I understand that they come with T5 light units and are quality checked by
    Ex-pats (rather than Chinese workers) in China before shipping, weather or not that makes a difference is anybodys guess.

    I'm afraid I dont have much experiance with the newer models with the T5 lights, we gave up on them before we sold many of them, but before the T5 lights, every models light unit would fail usually in under or just over a year.

    The other problem with Fish r Fun tanks is the build quality of the stands and the general finish. Often they turned up damaged with scratches, silver effect was always badly sprayed and the newer wood effect often had tears in the wood effect paper they used to cover the cabinet.

    Overall i wouldn't recommend them for a problem free purchase.

    FRF 555 filters

    Try that^

    that is the correct filter cartridge they recommend changing.

    if your talking about the black bio balls they dont need replacing.
