  1. Planted Nano Tanks
    Its been a long time since my last tank. I had a 55g high tech for many years until it crashed hard. I didn't have the bandwidth to start over so I sold everything. I have since retired and really want to get another tank. I no longer have the room for a big tank so nano it is. I also don't...

    When I got my Edge 6, during cycling the pump made a constant grinding noise. I kept stripping the filter and cleaning it, but I couldn't get it to stop. Over time, it got less and less to the point where it was intermittent. Grrrrrrrrr<pause>grrrrrrrrrrrrr<pause>grrrrrrrrrrr<pause>...etc. I...

    I just received an aftermarket LED 36 watt light fixture purchased through ultrabrite for my 12 gallon Fluval Edge. So far very pleased except the programming is way beyond my skill level. The program allows up to 50 time points and for each of those time points I can assign values for: Red...
  4. Planted Nano Tanks
    Am planning to tear down my Fluval Edge 6.6 gallon this weekend, and set it up with live plants. Was thinking of maybe trying dirt for the first time. Anyone have any luck planting the Edge? Any suggestions or feedback from their own trial and error?

    I've got a 6 gallon Fluval Edge that I would like to begin adding live plants, and then put Dwarf or Pea puffers in. Is this tank big enough? If yes could I house more than 1 puffer? Are Dwarf and Pea puffers the same thing? Appreciate any help! Note: I have a separate 20 gallon planted...

    Hi everyone, After a two years hiatus from fishkeeping, I decided to start getting back into it again. My previous tank was an ADA Mini-M iwagumi: I picked up a 12 gallon Fluval Edge on impulse while browsing a LFS. The plan was to go low-tech and low-maintenance. Since I'm going with the...

    I've had some spare parts from a Fluval Edge sitting in a closet and thought someone might be able to use them to repair or upgrade an old a Edge. All parts were used for a few months and then cleaned and put away. The LED replacement sells new for about $38.00. 6 Gallon 21 LED Lamp Fixture...

    Does anyone have a simple LED mod for the fluval edge as many of you know its lighting isn't the greatest for planted tanks? Something simple and easy? All the ones i see are pretty complex, and I'm not that great with technology and DIY haha. Thanks!

    LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY I have a Fluval Edge 6.6 Gallon Tank I no longer use anymore. The tank comes with the stock LED, the aquaclear filter (with extra carbon, bio-media, and extra sponge for mechanical filtration), and about an inch of eco-complete still in the tank. I live in Richmond, VA...
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    So I bought my first batch of CRS yesterday. I got 10 for the price of 8 (still pretty pricey). When I woke up today to look at the guys, I had to look FOR them. One is prancing around, one is in the HOB (how do I get him out?), and the others are nowhere to be seen. Is this normal? I have...

    So about a month ago i decided to get a tank again. I started with a 6G fluval edge. After about 3 weeks I decided to upgrade the tank to the 12G version. Revision1. - 6g Edge The new tank - 12g edge (same base but twice the height) It defiantly needs more work and tall plants but its a...

    Hey all, I'm at a crossroads here with my 6gal Edge. I did a standard me thing, and went overboard when I found this great looking tank. I could not just have any old edge, I needed it to be a high light tank! So, I went and upgraded the lights with 4 cree xp-gs (as seen in my sig) and added...

    UPDATE: This setup is No More :( Life has gotten busy and I've had to reduce my setups to two tanks. This one did not make the cut - it happens. Fast-forward to my recent post if you are interested in my thoughts on the EDGE product after having one up and running for about two solid years...

  18. Lighting
    Hey guys, I'm working on upgrading my light fixture (its the Edge w/stock lighting). I've come across some options but since I'm new at this I would love to get some opinions. I'm on a bit of a budget here, so I'm sure I won't be able to get the best, but I'd at least like something decent...

    Hi, longtime lurker here... I'm looking to setup a small shrimp-only tank in which to primarily separate out my best cherry shrimp and perhaps explore owning some CRS. I've been reading up on the merits and pitfalls of both the Fluval Edge and the new Ebi. Both are about the size tank I am...
