Beneath the Surface: Fluval Goes Underwater for its new U Series Aquarium Filters

November 8, 2010

MANSFIELD, Mass. Fluval Filtration Systems have long been a favorite of aquarium enthusiasts, due to their unmatched performance, reliability and water quality maintenance.  With the new line of Fluval U internal filters, the company has raised the bar even higher in creating a compact underwater internal filter with quality once reserved only for hang-on filters and canisters.

The silent yet efficient Fluval U series filters work as  supplemental or stand-alone filtration, or in situations where external filtration is not desired, making them ideal for fresh or marine aquariums, terrariums and turtle tanks.  The Fluval U1 Filter is the smallest in the series and has a top-quality single-stage filtration system, and the U2, U3 and U4 filters have unsurpassed 3-stage filtration with BIOMAX that removes debris and provides optimal biological filtration, providing superior aquarium water quality:

  • In Stage 1, a foam filter removes large particles
  • In Stage 2, a poly/carbon cartridge traps fine debris, improves water quality and removes impurities
  • In Stage 3, BIOMAX ceramic rings with a complex core system provide optimal biological filtration efficiency

The submersible design of the Fluval U series allows aquarium enthusiasts to create currents and customized water flow patterns within the tank, and it can be placed either vertically or horizontally in shallow water tanks to create waterfalls or other decorative water flow features.  Fluval U also offers three filter output options, which can be used separately or together, depending on need and desired outcome – top output, for maximum circulation and oxygenation; integrated spray bar, for even, gentle flow especially ideal for planted aquariums; and bottom output, for deep water agitation and creation of currents.

In addition to its superior filtration, the Fluval U series is made for quick and easy maintenance to keep aquarium water crystal clear and free of debris.  The exclusive Flip-Top design allows easy access to filtration media when cleaning or replacement is necessary.

The Fluval U Series comes in four sizes to accommodate a wide range of aquarium sizes.  MSRP starts at approximately $33.99.  For more information, visit or call 1‐800‐225‐2700.
