We all know that aquariums can have a calming and relaxing effect on us. The Fluval Chi takes this concept to a whole new level. This modern aquarium was carefully designed to create a calming aquatic setting and a profound sensory experience, by combining the soothing sound and motion of bubbling water with ambient illumination. Elegantly designed, this aquatic centerpiece is the perfect addition to your home or office.
The 5 gallon rimless Fluval Chi features an easy-to-use, low maintenance filtration system which maintains crystal clear water and ensures a healthy environment for your fish. Filtered water flows calmly over the center cube, adding oxygen to the aquarium. A filter pad provides thorough and effective filtration, ridding the habitat of debris, contaminants, and odors. Lastly, a foam pad captures excess particles and debris, while also supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
To illuminate this serene kit, a powerful, 17 LED system emits 7,600 kelvin, along with a fountain up-light which remains on, emitting a calm, soothing glow. The lighting and filtration systems are both built into a rotatable cube, which makes cleaning and replacing filter pads easy and efficient.

With striking artistic simplicity, the Fluval Chi makes a stunning aquatic feature. Inspired by ancient Chinese culture, Chi describes the life force of living things and symbolizes the positive effects of energy. The flowing water of Fluval Chi is believed to encourage Feng Shui, bringing prosperity and good luck to your home.
Chi is versatile, manageable and provides a stylish habitat for fascinating fish species. As with all Fluval nano aquariums, Chi is easy to set up and maintain and with a beautiful range of accessories to choose from, it allows you to create an individual look to suit your mood or surroundings. The Fluval Chi features a world first- a combined filter, light unit and water feature. The water bubbles and gurgles over the top of the feature, which appears to float in the center of the tank. The Chi is perfect for those who are familiar with aquatic lifestyles.
The Chi delivers an appealing aquarium, making the ordinary truly extraordinary. It was designed to radiate positive energy throughout any home. The elegant yet subtle lines and harmonious balance of light and sound create a soothing atmosphere that gently envelops an area. Relax to the gentle sound of flowing water and the graceful movement of fish as Chi brings a peaceful ambiance to your space. Chi includes a safe, low voltage LED lighting system so in low light environments the aquarium takes on a glowing, peaceful beauty of its own.
Fluval Chi is designed with an open top design for tranquility.
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. This creates a stunning nighttime visual and casts a soothing aquatic glow onto the ceiling of the room. The 6.6 gallon model also features a remote control lighting system.
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.
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.
The 180 degree rotating filter head and easy access media cover ensures routine maintenance is quick and simple to do.
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.
