  1. The THINK Tank
    Hey everyone, I have a relatively new 6g Fluval edge tank. I plan on making this a mixed reef. For lighting, I’ll have the Kessil A150 Ocean Blue LED to replace the stock lighting of 5W of 21 LEDs (18 white leds (7600k) and 3 blue leds) I . I use IO reef crystals salt too. I have about 6-10lbs...

    Hey Everyone, question. I have been looking at a small salt tank and have heard that the FLEX works as a salt tank, but really Fluval Evo is built for it. Suggestions on the FLEX for simple anemone and clown fish, cleaner shrimp, hermit crab - as only inhabitants. 15 gallon tank (not the 9G) -...

    Have had this tank for nearly 1 year now. 2 Months ago this algae came. I have tried chemiclean (lfs suggested red algae), didnt work. I have tried increasing water current (lfs suggested that), didnt work. Any Ideas?

    So I have been looking at modding my Fluval Evo 13.5 for better filtering. Right now, I am thinking about building a DIY media basket for the first chamber (where the protein skimmer normally goes) and using Chemipure Elite, Seachem Phosgard and Seachem DeNitrate in the basket. In the second...

    I've been trying to get corals going in my tank for a while now, some of them do ok, I have some trumpets that have split a few times from the original 4 I now have about about 9, but everything else seems to really struggle, even Zoas and anthelia, I'm thinking my lights might be contributing...

    I'm on the verge of purchasing one of these, but I'm aware of the design issue on the chambers / baffles. I'm planning on loading 5-10kg of Fiji LR, placing the (supplied) skimmer in chamber 1, but adding an external filter (feed) to chamber 2 - loaded with floss, Rowaphos, Carbon - which...

    Hi, I have the Fluval M60 with the Fluval Sea LED strip. Just recently I have noticed that the blue mode is not functioning at all - the normal 'daylight' setting works fine. I am disappointed :bawling: and certainly don't want to fork out another £150 odd to replace it when all I want is the...

  9. Reefing Equipment
    Hello all! So I started with a 29 gallon tank. Tomorrow will be the fifth day I'll have it running. Currently I have a fluval 404 running which is keeping that sucker clean. Aqueon 500 wave maker. Heater. Temp is stable at 78-79. 2 damsels in there. Just put snails in yesterday. Got my ammonia...

    Hey guys, I recently was able to order a Fluval Spec 2 gallon tank on the cheap and really would like to try and start keeping coral. I know nothing about corals or lighting for corals or feeding corals. I heard mushroom corals are pretty hardy and good for beginners like me. My question is...

    Po im about to start a neat little reef build. I lucked out and found a 5 gallon fluval spec for 20 bucks. I work at a petco and it greatly reduced because it was missing its light bar which wasnt a big deal considering id be replacing it. I did nit find forums until after I finished my first...

    Just wondering if anyone on here has had any experience with Fluval Alkalinity/Calcium additatives. I just started dosing on Sunday as both levels were dropping (down to 360 calcium and 6.2 Alk). I have only dosed once as per the recommended dosage. Now today I find my feather duster has left...

    I have a 60 gallon hexagon aquarium that i want to set up a Fish Only With Live Rock environment in..... Will the Fluval 306 canister, rated for up to 70 gallons, be enough to properly filter this tank? or should i go for the 100 gallon 406 canister? is it possible to have filtration that is too...
  14. The THINK Tank
    Hi all, So I've been running a Fluval Edge 12 gallon for the past 6 months, and in that time I've had two major crashes. I don't understand the reasoning behind them and was hoping someone could help me. The first time, I had a clown, 2 small bubble tip anemones, an anemone shrimp, and a...

  16. Nano Reefs
    So I've had my fluval edge up and running for about two months now I believe but just starting getting into the forums recently. I was quite apprehensive to do this tank seeing as it is my first saltwater but I'm an employee and a huge pet store and I got pretty much all of the equipment for...

    just wondering if anyone else has tried doing a nano reef with the fluval edge, and if we could give each other pointers :)

    I setup my Fluval edge 6 gal last week. It is currently cycling and the only thing inside are 2 hitch hiking snails. I have around 7 poinsettia o live rock, the aquaclear 20 and a hydor 240 power head. In my filter I have filter floss, live rock pieces, and a bag of sand and crushed coral. I'm...

    What is the best heater that I can use for a SW Fluval edge? I have it running on a deep blue Heat Stic while cyling but want something better when I add fish.Something small and controllable, what should I get? It is a FOWLR tank.
