Take out a subscription to PFK and take advantage of this amazing offer.
The Fluval U-series of internal aquarium filters have recently undergone a few design tweaks and improvements, based on feedback from the fishkeepers who used them (so top marks there to the manufacturer Rolf C. Hagen for listening). As a result, this best-selling range of filters are now even better — and here's your chance to get a Fluval U2 model (RRP £46.99) when you subscribe to PFK.
The U2 filter is easy to use, quiet running and suitable for fresh or saltwater aquariums up to 110 l.
Features of the new Fluval U2 filter include:
- New sleek design
- New easy grip water control paddle
- New redesigned media cartridge – traps more debris
- Use as a primary filter for smaller aquariums, or supplementary filter for larger aquariums
- Position horizontally for shallow tanks, larger tanks with low water levels, or to create a decorative waterfall feature
- Position vertically against aquarium wall to create currents or customized flow patterns
- Convenient flip-top lid allows for quick and easy access to filter cartridge for maintenance or replacement
- Adjustable three-way flow control: Top output for circulation and oxygenation, integrated spray bar for a gentle even flow, and bottom output for deepwater agitation
- BioMax biological media, two foam pads and two poly/carbon cartridges are all included
- Made in Italy.
So click right here to subscribe today and receive your complimentary Fluval U2 filter. This offer closes on May 9, 2017. What are you waiting for?
We told you last year that it was closing soon, but we’re delighted to announce that the PFK forum is to remain up and running, along with a new look!
Those of you who are regular users of the incredibly popular PFK forum were no doubt as saddened as we were by the news that it was due to be closed soon after the main website moved to its new platform last summer.
We resisted the closure here at the PFK office and we managed to get a ‘stay of execution’ for several months. We also had loads of posts and emails from users, including some who had even met their partners through the forum, and who wanted it to stay.
And it’s all paid off! We're keeping the forum.
So we’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has supported us, along with the mods for all their hard work, and everyone out there who uses the PFK forum.
This does mean that the forum will be offline on Tuesday, while the migration work takes place. A nice new shiny forum will then appear — users will be able to log in with their same credentials into this new version of the forum and all the original content will remain.
