Official Fluval Ebi/Flora Pimp Club


Hey, I thought It would be cool to start up a club to recognize those with ebi's and Floras being that they are becoming so popular.

If you would like to become a member to this club you have to reply to this thread and write which # you are (I am Fluval EBI Pimp #1 )...the next person would be #2...and so on.

Put Either Fluval EBI pimp, or Fluval FLORA pimp in your signature depending on the tank that you have. There wont be two separate groups, so like if #2 was an EBI pimp, then the next person had a flora it wouldn't start from #1 agian, the Ebi's and flora's will not have separate numbering basically.

It would also be a good idea to post a pic of your tank in the forum, or list any mods you have done to your tank, or anything you think that others should know. I hope that this forum could also be a place where people interested in these tanks can ask questions to those of us that do have them.

If there's anything im missing here dont be afraid to let me know!

And so.....I hereby call myself Fluval EBI Pimp #1

That is scary! Ever since I read the back grounds have started popping off I am scared I am going to come home to a big mess and murdered shrimp via light electrocution.

My advice to members who have Ebi check and secure that background before its too late. Kuddos to the one that mentioned this problem if it wasn't from that member it could have been a disaster waiting to happen.

Default Heater?

What kind of heater should I use with my Flora? I'm in NY. Will a 25 watt suffice? Anyone have suggestions on a particular brand?

Use the marina/fluval edge 25w heater. they are very sleek and keep my tank around 78. If that temp. is fine for you then it's a great choice, but the only con is that the heater doesn't have any temp controls.
