MANSFIELD, Mass., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rolf C. Hagen Inc, the world's largest privately owned pet products manufacturer, announces the launch of the all-new Fluval Accent, a stylish 25 gallon (95 liter) lifestyle aquarium that is positioned to attract new fish enthusiasts not only for the aquarium's looks, but for its extremely simple maintenance system.
While many people enjoy the thought of bringing nature into their home with products such as an aquarium, Fluval recognized long ago that very few act on that impulse simply because of the maintenance time and complexity involved. Based on that notion, the research and development team at Fluval developed SIMPLETEC®, a revolutionary one-touch maintenance system that allows the user to flush the filter and perform water changes with the push of a button, literally. With this new proprietary technology, aquarium maintenance can be done in record time – about 10 minutes once per month. Set-up is equally easy, with installation of the Fluval Accent taking approximately 60 minutes or less.
"Hagen develops products not only for the pet, but the pet owner, which is why we have revolutionized the aquarium experience, making it much less daunting for new aquarium owners," said Rolf C. Hagen Senior Marketing Manager, Damian Hall. "The Fluval Accent adds a stunning showcase to the home, and allows people more time to enjoy the tank, and less time maintaining it."
The Accent also features integrated LED lighting, which is housed in the unit's top frame and remains out of sight from virtually any viewing angle. The LED system is not only energy-efficient and built to last, but also offers separate day and night settings to make for a stunning showcase in the home no matter what time it is.
Available in Espresso brown with matching cabinet (sold separately), Accent is an ideal fit with any of Fluval's Decor series plants, ornaments and other accessories, which can be mixed and matched to create a truly custom look.
The Accent measures 30 inches long x 18 inches tall x 12.5 inches wide and is equipped with biological media, a fresh and clear filter cartridge, 150-watt pre-set heater, water conditioner, biological enhancer and a water collection bucket. The Fluval Aquarium can be purchased at major pet retailers for the suggested retail price of $299.99, and the cabinet sells for an additional $99.99.
