Hagen’s Fluval EDGE II Adds LED’s and a New Size to Iconic 3-Dimensional Aquarium Line

The new 12-gallon Fluval EDGE II aquarium has a vertical orientation, so it takes up no more desk space than the 6-gallon EDGE II.

MANSFIELD, Mass. – When the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. introduced the Fluval EDGE aquarium two years ago, it was hailed as an innovation in modern fishkeeping for its modern, 3-dimensional, low-maintenance glass and steel design that added a graceful and refined decorator’s touch to any room in the home or office.  Rolf C. Hagen has taken the now-iconicEDGE and improved on a good thing with the Fluval EDGE II, making it available in two sizes and adding luminous LED lighting, while maintaining all the brilliance, clarity and spectacular vision of the original.

The Fluval EDGE II comes with a completely redesigned lighting system that features super-bright LED’s specifically designed to enhance the beauty of fish and aquatic plants within the aquarium.  The 7600K high-luminosity LED’s illuminate the Fluval EDGE II in an ethereal way that ordinary halogen or incandescent lighting simply cannot achieve.  The Daytime setting features strong, white LED lights that reach all areas of the aquarium with their cool, penetrating glow.  A simple flick of the switch activates the Nighttime mode, in which blue LED’s cast a cool, gentle moonlight over the aquascape, creating a serene azure radiance that is also perfect for use as a night light.  For times when lighting is not desired, the switch also has an “off” position.

The Nighttime mode's blue LED's cast a serene moonlight glow throughout the EDGE II aquarium.

A new, larger 12-gallon (46 liter) aquarium joins the original 6-gallon (23 liter) size in the Fluval EDGE II family, both of which are visually stunning yet compact enough to fit in a small space, making them ideal for apartments, offices or other living spaces where a larger set up would be overwhelming.  The 12-gallon EDGE II is vertically oriented so its footprint is the same as the 6-gallon aquarium, taking the same amount of linear space.  This “double height” design also allows more room for creative aquascaping and provides a larger viewing area to enjoy the beauty of the undersea habitat.

Like the original EDGE, the EDGE II’s uniqueness comes from its sealed glass top that creates a “floating” appearance and provides spectacular, high-definition viewing of the fish and plants within.  This ground-breaking feature also helps to reduce water evaporation rates, simplifying maintenance and keeping the aquarium environment healthier for the fish.

The Fluval EDGE II 6-gallon aquarium is available in three colors – Gloss White, Gloss Black and Pewter, and the 12-gallon aquarium is available in Gloss White and Gloss Black.  Both come with the powerful and easy to use EDGE filter with Cycle Guard and 3-stage filtration that ensures clear water and a healthy environment, and one ounce each of Nutrafin Aqua Plus Water Conditioner and Nutrafin Cycle Biological Aquarium Supplement.

The MSRP for the Fluval EDGE II 6-gallon is $154.99 and the 12-gallon is $189.99.  Both will be available online and at pet retailers nationwide by the end of October 2011.  For more information visit, or contact the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. at 1-800-225-2700.
