Fluval aquariums

These are my new aquariums I have recently bought. They are manufactured by a company named Fluval. The top is a 5 gallon tank called a Fluval chi. The design is pretty cool and the filter is like a fountain design. It gives the appearence that it is floating on the surface. The tank is very functional, and the filter pads are inexpensive. The only downside to the filter is that is does get clogged about every 3 to 4 days, not to the point that it doesnt work but it will spout and make noises. So, you have to take the filter cube out and rinse off the filter pads, put it back together and place it back in the tank. Other than that its a cool aqaurium.

The bottom picture is the Fluval edge. This is a 6.6 gallon aquarium with a view from the inside the tank from the top. The rectangle design flows and gives it a unique design.

The filter works pretty well, it is a tier system filter, filter sponge, charcol satchet and amonia pebble sachet. The charcaol needs to be replaced every 2 to 4 weeks, filter pads can be rinsed and reused up to 2 to 4 months and the ammonia pebbles replaced 3-4 months. The replacement filter accesories are inexpensive as well. This makes for a great experiance.

Growing up I was very much into aquriums and raising all kinds of fish. I havent done it for a long time so getting back into it is a lot of fun!
