I've been trying to get the dimensions of the Fluval Chi, which isn't on sale in the UK until September Rolling Eyes

Has anyone in America or Canada got one Confused Could they please let me know what they are. I know its 25 litres, but I want to see if it fits into a space I've got, if not I won't hang on until September, but buy another tank I've got my eye on Very Happy

Dimensions are 10 x 10 x 12''. Its a 10'' square but 12 inch high.

They come out in September there? Glad to be in the USA (for aquariums that is...)

Thanks for that, but isn't that one the 19 litre one, it was the 25 litre dimensions I'd like Cool

If you punch in the dimensions here, you get 5.19us or 19.66 liters so yes, it is the 19 liter one, but they advertise it being a 5 gallon here in the us.

Neat tank, but I would prefer a normal rimless.

Look in the bottom left-hand corner of this picture, it says "5 us gallons"

Thanks for the info, they are advertising 2 over here, one being the 19 litre, the other 25 litres. I've spoken to someone at Hagen today and she says they are the same size except for the height, the 25 litre or 7 US gallon is 16ins high.

By the normal rimless, do you mean the filter hang on thing? I've got several nano type tanks and just fancied this one. I was thinking of keeping it cold water and getting some Long Finned Minnows. What fish do you keep in yours?

The packaging for the UK is being changed (according to PFK) to remove the orandas.

These tanks are not suitable for minnows but Heterandria formosa would be an option. There is a gold form.
