Hagen has moved into the planted aquarium scene in a big way with a new range of planting equipment, substrates, CO2 and a special planted aquarium kit.
The Fluval Flora aquarium is based along the same lines as the Fluval EBI shrimp aquarium, being a 30 litre glass tank with a curved front and a glass lid.
Unlike the Fluval EBI, which was also launched today at Interzoo, it includes a soil-based substrate with added minerals, Hagen said that the Fluval Flora soil is designed purely to promote plant growth.
The Fluval Flora nano aquarium comes with a small pressurised CO2 unit to add carbon dioxide to the water to enhance plant growth.
This is based on a small 88g disposable gas canister, and both the CO2 unit and replacement bottles will be sold separately for use on other aquariums.
The range also includes long-reach planting scissors and planting tongs to aid aquascaping. Prices and availability have yet to be confirmed.
