My SW Fluval Edge - Aquarium Forum
Saltwater and Reef Photography This is the photography forum for the SW section. It's a dedicated forum to post pictures of some of the things in our tanks, pics of new additions, as well as for great information exchange, tips, tricks, and overall just discussing cameras and photography techniques of our tanks. Learn all about apertures, f-stops, ISOs, macro, flashes, white balance, and anything and everything else that drives us crazy to get a masterpiece shot. Feel free to show off your tanks in here, and plus its a great way for humble people to nonchalantly have their reef tanks nominated by the other members for Tank Of The Month. Don't be shy!

My SW Fluval Edge

Here is a picture of my 5 week old saltwaterautolinker.com autolinking image Fluval Edge at work. in about a week or two I will be replacing the fish with two young clown fish. I might add some soft corals, but not fully sure yet.

Enjoy!

Looking good! I'd add more live rock if it were mine.

So this is a 6 Gal tank. Great for the office! I replaced the manufacture provided bulbs with LED bulbs and added two Ecoxotic stunner strips (1 Blue and White & the other all blue) Stunner LED Strips

These provide great additional lighting to the aquarium. I plan to add a couple soft corals so we'll see how it all works out. I'm still going to wait a couple weeks to add my fish. I'll post an updated pic at a later date.

Thanks! Given it's such a small tank, I wanted to maximize the area for the fish to be able to exercise. Also, I was thinking of putting some soft corals which might help fill in the space.

Re: My SW Fluval Edge

Yesterday I found a baby starfish hanging on the glass. You can see it on the right just above the live rock (little brown spot). It's so much fun to see how the tank takes shape.

Re: My SW Fluval Edge

Super nice looking. In 6 gallons of water, I'd recommend limiting fish to one fish which remains under 3" when full grown.

I would also recommend you use these filter pads:
Poly Bio Marine: The Poly Filter
they are worth their weight in gold!

Re: My SW Fluval Edge

Nice! Is it a good tank? I was thinking of getting one.

Fish are living creatures...treat them that way

2g with 1 female betta

8 gallon with 3 young, adorable bettas and a bumblebee platy or 2 soon to come!
