Default Fluval 305 for sale

Fluval 305. Ran it for 5 weeks. Determined it is too small for a 75 gal and upgraded.

I don't like it anyway. It wont start back up after a power failure (cured with a UPS).

$75

HI tayna it just means you will need a surge protector............................

ipc stand for uninterruptible power supply. The're designed to protect your electronic's against power failures, unstable line power, surges, and other power events outside your control.

UPS units will help eliminate the down time, incase of power failure lose... it's like having a battery powered air pump when fish need air, and the power went off do to a storm/black out.

think of it as a back up genarator in away.

I'm also am thinking about selling my 305 fluval doesn't need a ups but has problems priming... I bought it from jimmy for 65.00 asking $65.00.

I got your email from your phone, i emailed back about 10-15 mins ago.

Its just a surge protector that when the power goes out for less than 10 minutes, the pump will still run. Like Joey says, it has problems priming and starting back up, thus the preventing it stopping during a brief power outtage takes the problem away.

Nice hijack Joey

This fluval 305 that i have maybe something wrong with it. The flow is only good for a 10g. On my 20g i had to add a nano koraila in it to have enough flow around. I did have a 205 before till i changed it to 305 still not enough. Buying eheim this time.

something is more or likely wrong with it then if you can't get enough flow out it on a 20g. it does 260gph and is rated for a 70, me i wouldn't put it o anything bigger then a 40g... i take what ever it's rated for and div. that number in half.
