Reefbuilders.com reported earlier this month about the debut of three new 72L size (about 19 gallons) versions of the popular Fluval Edge: Basic, Plant, and Marine & Reef. They report that these new models are not only larger, but ship with upgraded LED lights and the new Simpletec Filter. Verrrrry interesting indeed!
As a one time Edge enthusiast (I had a generation 1 model – a journal of my experience is on plantedtank.net if you want to have a look) I’m kind of super excited about this, even though I doubt I’ll buy one. I currently have enough tanks going to keep me busy and, to be honest, I’m not real wild about the idea that the Plant model (apparently) only comes in lime green. That stuff aside though, I do find myself getting a little bit giddy over this – its great to see that Hagen is willing to improve on a concept and ship a better product as a result of customer requests and use cases. Also, the design and packaging looks about as slick as ever. Can’t wait to see what people end up doing with them!
