When the Fluval Edge was released, aquascapers were wowed by its good looks and it generated significant interest. When the first aquascapers got their hands on the Edge, it became apparent that its good looks came at a price.
The main appeal of the Edge is the way the aquarium has been designed. Its stand is minimalistic and small, encouraging you to wonder how the seemingly gravity defying tank does not come crashing down. There is no visual evidence of any lights or filter, and although it is obvious that these are hidden in the aquarium stand, there is a curiosity to how Fluval fitted everything in it.
Because of an emphasis on its killer looks, the Edge had to compromise somewhere. Aquascapers have commented that the filter and lights that are provided with the Edge are not adequate for its size. However, there is such a dedication to the Edge that the community has taken to modding it with a passion. The end result is that the Edge is now able to host aquascapes that its original configurations were unable to support.
This pictorial article is to celebrate all Fluval Edge aquascapers. Not only do we at [TAG] acknowledge their dedication and passion, Fluval has been similarly moved as well. Closer towards the end of 2011, a new Fluval Edge will be introduced with LED lights, effectively addressing the number one issue of the original Edge.
Here are forty one Fluval Edges by The Planted Tank aquascapers, all a statement of passion for the hobby.
This Fluval Edge by Mxx is our favourite. This jungle aquascape fills the Edge nicely, it must be stunning to behold. Here are 4 pictures of our favourite’s Edge.
