    Filter for 36 gallon bowfront aquarium

    Hello, I just finished cycling my 36 gal bowfront tank that’s using a Fluval 70 filter. I chose this filter after seeing lots of people mention that the Fluval 50 wouldn’t be powerful enough for my tank size. Right now, I have a few Zebra Danios that I just moved into the new tank and within the...

    Fluval FX6 Whining and Output Hose Shuddering

    Afternoon everyone, I set up my FX6 on my new 193 gallon a couple of days ago. It's been running without issue since then, until the last hour when the filter itself is making a whining sound and the output hose is "shuddering" for want of a better word. It`s almost like it`s convulsing and...

    Fluval Spec 16 L (16 US Gal) stocking

    Hi guys, so I’ve wanted a Male Betta for a while now and was pretty set on the Fluval Spec V (5 gallon). Last minute I thought I may as well just go for the 60 litre and so it will be arriving tomorrow. I will use existing media and water to cycle the tank and ensure all levels are good before...

    Fluval Flex 15 Gal. - First Ever Fish Tank!

    Hey everyone, I recently got into the hobby and had a little bit of help from a friend/pet store employee on starting up. Unfortunately, I didn't read too in-depth about the nitrogen cycling beforehand and the employee had told me that I would be able to add fishes in right away by using bottled...

    Fluval Edge 23L

    Hello, I love the look of the Fluval Edge, but I understand it can be a pain to maintain due to accessing the inside of it. Do any of you have a Fluval Edge for your shrimp and how do you get on with it? Obviously I would add a pre-filter sponge to protect the babies.

    I need opinions on a good light!

    I am planning on planting my 20H gallon tank with beginner, low-light plants. I came across the Fluval Aquasky 2.0 and loved the convenience of just using my phone! I saw one website had it on sale from 104.99 to about 72.99. Will it be enough to support the growth of low-light plants?
