Fluval 10518 First Impressions

The LEDs are beautiful.

After reading only four reviews I was hesitant. The lights alone are beautiful to brighten up a space. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. I would recommend those back flow connectors for the air pump. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff.

Fluval 10518 Final Thoughts

- A Color Fusion light.

Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. All of this is explained in the instructions. It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. You are getting a premium quality tank for a reasonable price. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! Not crazy about the lid or the stand.
