The sleek, over-hanging lighting system consists of a powerful LED lighting strip that provides full-spectrum lighting plus key spectral wavelengths to promote strong plant growth and fish color.

Installing your Aquarium

Thoroughly rinse the aquarium, cover and filter media using fresh water and a damp cloth. Never use soap on any component placed in your aquarium as soap is harmful to fish.

NOTE: Place aquarium on a level, sturdy surface, away from any electrical equipment, direct sunlight, drafts, heat sources or high traffic areas.

Position filter media, pump, and output nozzle.

Using the Allen Key, secure light unit onto aquarium.

When filling aquarium with water, add the correct dose of tap water conditioner and biological aquarium additive (sold separately). Note: Consult your fish dealer for proper species and fish stocking levels.

Maintaining your Aquarium

NOTE: To ensure the wellbeing of aquarium inhabitants, it is essential to maintain your aquarium. At the very minimum, remove 20% of the water once a week and replace with fresh water that is of similar temperature to your tank and treated with the correct dose of aquarium water conditioners.

NOTE: Regular replacement of the Fluval Filter Media is essential to ensure optimal performance. The filter media should be changed alternately in order to maintain continuous biological activity.
