MANSFIELD, Mass. – The Fluval Flora Aquatic Plant Kit from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. was designed to highlight the natural beauty of aquatic plants while adding a comforting and stylish design element to any home or office décor, and it is these innovative features that have prompted Pet Product News International to present the Fluval Flora with its 2011 Editor’s Choice Award.
This unique, seamless habitat enables aquarium enthusiasts to create a mini-ecosystem rich in aquatic plant life, small fish and other invertebrates, yet also allows them to create a habitat devoted entirely to aquatic plants, if they so choose. The 7.9 gallon (US) Fluval Flora Aquatic Plant Kit comes with everything needed to establish a healthy environment for plants and fish, including the Fluval Nano Aquarium Filter, designed specifically to maintain clean water and ensure life-sustaining oxygenation in small, or nano, aquariums, and the full-spectrum Fluval Compact Fluorescent Lighting System, which provides balanced light essential to photosynthesis.
When establishing a planted tank, substrate is important, so Fluval’s Plant Stratum is included with the Fluval Flora. Developed just for aquatic plants, Plant Stratum promotes neutral to mildly acidic pH and helps keep the water clear. Additionally, the habitat comes with 30 mL (1 ounce) of Plant Gro Aquatic Fertilizer, to promote vigorous growth and vibrant coloration in plants, and because plants rely on the absorption of carbon dioxide to live and flourish, Fluval’s Mini CO2 System is included, as well.
“We are pleased to accept this Editor’s Choice award for the Fluval Flora Aquatic Plant Kit, and are honored that Pet Product News International recognized the uniqueness and innovation that went into the design of this product,” said Damian Hall, Marketing/Events Manager for the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. “Our nano aquariums are some of our most popular items and the Fluval Flora is the only one designed to accommodate aquatic plants and we are thrilled that it had been given this award.”
Innovation, function or design, or a combination of all three, were the criteria used in choosing the winners of Pet Product News International’s Editor’s Choice Awards, which were chosen from hundreds of products submitted by manufacturers or viewed at trade shows.
The Fluval Flora Aquatic Plant Kit measures 11.8” x 11.8” x 13.75” (30 cm X 30 cm X 35 cm), and in addition to the above items, comes with a realistic rock background, a thermometer, internal filter, planting tongs, a protection mat, and an informative care guide. It has an MSRP of 119.95. For more information visit www.hagen.com, or contact the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. at 1-800-225-2700.
