Fluval's beast !!! Review by Karl
What a beast ..! The ultimate external from fluval, so so impressed at this filter, water super clear and the water flow is very high, so good that I've even turned the wave maker down or even off at times, would recommend with no hesitation at all ... (Posted on 17/05/2016)
Great Filter Review by Adam
A pricey filter, but works like a charm, had it running a little over a month now and its amazingly quiet with great flow on my 260L.
Be sure to only use as much pipe as you need as i had trouble with air bubbles first, cut the pipe a bit more and it was fine. Great filter for the price and would buy another over the pricey £400 rivals of Eheim. (Posted on 12/10/2013)

Pallet Tier 1

This tier is for solo tanks and cabinets, or other solo high weight products that we can't send by a normal courier. We subsidies the majority of the true delivery cost for these items to offer the best value we can. The shipping cost for these is calculated at checkout.


Pallet Tier 2

New for 2020! We are proud to announce we now offer FREE mainland UK pallet deliveries for Pallet Tier 2. Pallet Tier 2 is for the larger full tank and cabinet sets, such as the beautiful Juwel Rio, Lido, Trigon and Vision ranges.
