Central and South American fish such as rasbora species, guppies, endler guppies and many small tetra species with work perfectly along side invertebrates such as red crystal shrimp. Another road many have taken with the Fluval Edge is the road to marines, turning this already stunning tank in to a nano reef equipped with small soft corals, invertebrates and small reef fisies. Both freshwater and marine have been tried and tested by our selves
and the fluval edge seems to cope with ease.

Our Experience 

As eager fish keepers we couldn't wait to get a couple of these tanks set up here is what we did, what we used and our verdict.

We set up a Fluval Edge 23l when they first came out and is still set up to this day, we set it up as fresh water natural planted tank using things such as, silica sand, swamp root, bog wood planted with anubis and java fern. As a finished result it has been stocked with 3 male and 5 female cherry barbs, 4 pygmy corydoras and several yamato shrimps, with regular small 10% water changes and replenishing the freindly bacteria with Sability after each water change it has wooked really well and looks amazing. All down to the Edges fantastic flteration.

But more recently we set a gloss white Fluval Edge 46l as marine and we have found that the fluval edge works just as well with a little help of the fantasting product Purigen by Seachem, this just gives the all ready great filteration that boost it needs for marines. We filled the tank with pre mixed RO salt water using Red Sea Coral Pro Salt and stocked the tank with 5kg of fiji live rock and 1 bag of Carib Sea live Aragonite reef sand to begin with. we left the tank 1 week monitoring the salinity, PH and KH levels and once we were happy we introduced a few turbo snails and a few red leg hermits. We then left the tank two weeks feeding every three days monitoring for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate again once we were happy we introduced a couple of percula clown fish. We then begun small 10% weekly water changes and stocking the tank with a few soft corals, leathers, mushrooms and polyps and saw promising results the corals flurished and the fish were in full colour. It has now been set up 3 months and is stocked with 2 percula clowns, 3 green coral gobies, 3 red leg hermits, 3 turbo snails and 2 tube worms.

In conclusion we have found the Fluval Edge easy to work with, rewarding and stunning in its design, we would recomend this from some one new to fish keeping to the more experienced fish keeper. We give the Fluval Edge 10/10.
