Fluval edge hood rust Is it a common problem?

Recommended Posts

Hi people I owned one of these afew years ago and am looking at buying another. When I had the last one the lid (which has a metal grate inclosed) rusted out. Has anyone who owns one of these had the same problem or found away to prevent this happening. Thanks. Mark

I personally thought it was a bigger issue with the previous generation of fluval tanks with the halogen bulbs - the heat caused more evaporation in general and so greater chance of rusting the hood. The newer tanks with LED lighting dont seem to be as bad. Rust is also definitely more of an issue if you regularly let the water levels drop off and so have more "splashing" from the HOB filter.
