Fluval Chi Variety of Features

Fluval Chi aquarium is available in two sizes (5 gallons and 6.6 gallons). It is designed with an open top design for tranquility.

Fluval Chi Nano AquariumsFiltration System
The Fluval Chi utilizes a full three stage mechanical, chemical, and biological filter, specifically designed to prevent water bypass, provide clear water, and promote a healthy nano living environment. Two separate filtration media are available for the Chi: the foam pad and filter pad.

The foam pad should remain in the filter to foster biological growth while the filter pad removes finer debris and chemical impurities through carbon filtration. The design of the filter is especially unique to the Chi in that water is brought in from the bottom of the "box", passed through the filtration media, and bubbles out over the top in a calming waterfall-style feature.

LED Lighting System
Fluval Chi features two separate cool-white LED lighting units: a 12 LED submersible light unit illuminates the aquarium from the bottom of the filtration box, while a second set of LED's shines upward and lights the water as it flows back into the aquarium.

Plant Basket
The plant basket easily slips out of the plant box and can be filled with Fluval Chi decor pieces (sold separately) or natural plants to complement the Fluval Chi surroundings.

Pebble Basket
Positioned on the top of the filtration cube, the decor tray holds either the pebble basket or additional decor pieces (available separately), which soften the sound of the trickling water.

Media Access
The 180 degree rotating filter head and easy access media cover ensures routine maintenance is quick and simple to do.

Introducing Fish
Recommended types of fish for the Fluval Chi are Goldfish, Bettas, Guppies and Danios. Allow a minimum of 1 gallon of water for every 1 inch of fish, excluding tail. Fish are usually sold as juveniles, so you will need to allow some extra space for your fish to grow. If you chose tropical fish, remember that some require the use of a heater. Also, some fish may attempt to jump, so the open top design of the Chi could limit your choice of fish.

Review by T. Sessoms for Fluval Chi Aquarium Kit
I didn't purchase my Chi from Amazon, but I've had it for a year and wanted to share my input. This is a perfect aquarium for some aquarium life/plants, or even just to have plants only. In fact, I'm buying two more this week for my living room!

There's several great reviews which go over the Chi in depth so I don't want to reinvent the wheel, if you'd like to see those as well just go check out the 4 & 5 star reviews.

What I want to bring attention to is the fact that most, if not all, of the reviews under the 1 & 2 star section aren't the fault of the Chi, they seem to be the fault of an inexperienced aquarist or someone who hasn't done the research on the type of life they're putting in the tank, with exception of one or two reviews which mentioned equipment problems such as the power supply going bad.

Fluval doesn't put out poor products, they are TOP NOTCH. As such I wanted to share general "good aquarist" habits and my personal experience with the Chi, so all can rest assured it's a solid product. Let me comment on a few common things I found in the "bad" reviews, to help guide those who may be on the fence.. here's a quick index of my review

Fluval Chi Aquarium Kit

The Fluval Chi comes equipped with everything you need to get your calming aquatic environment started: a center filter/light cube with switch, a foam and filter pad, a transparent pebble holder and pebbles, an in-tank decorative plant basket, along with one ounce of Aqua Plus, one ounce of Cycle and an instruction manual.

Inspired by the Chinese Chi philosophy, Fluval Chi helps stimulate the essence of Chi-inspired values such as life, health, prosperity and everything that is positive. The Fluval Chi tank delivers an appealing aquarium, making the ordinary truly extraordinary.

It was designed to radiate positive energy throughout any home or office. Its elegant yet subtle lines and harmonious balance of light and sounds provide a stylish, contemporary decor piece to any setting. The calming aquatic setting creates a profound sensory and spiritual experience by combining the soothing sound and motion of bubbling water with ambient illumination.

This tank is beautiful, tranquil, and perfect for a betta or 3 fancy guppies, but not much else. I HIGHLY recommend this Fluval Chi aquarium for those with a betta.
