Fluval 307 Filter For tanks from 90 to 330 litres water.
Fluval 307 Filter is a member of the seventh generation Fluval’s top selling canister filter family worldwide and things keep getting better.
The Fluval 307 External Filter is probably the uk’s best selling aquarium filter. Well designed and having a square footprint it uses cupboard space efficiently. Yes think about it a round filter wastes space as it does not fit a corner without leaving gaps. The 307 employs the latest materials in its build and looks built to last. Earlier Fluval models did suffer from leaking but the new ones have put that behind them. Fluval have addressed and changed previous weak points. It still comes with the black ribbed hose of which I am not a fan but the other than that, build quality seems much improved overall.
Fluval 307 External Filter Features
As with prior models there’s a primer as this has been beefed up and seems much stronger and works well. The previous versions were easy to break with rough handling. The catches have also been tinkered with and now are greatly improved and much more substantial. They now not only fasten the filter shut they lever it open too. The aquastop valve has also been redesigned and should now stand up to even the most cack handed amongst us, and its much smoother to operate. The rubber feet have also been improved and now provide much better dampening and the wrap around design protects the filters corners.

The store maintains specific policies regarding the delivery of livestock. Here are the key points:
Licensed Livestock Courier: The store exclusively uses a licensed livestock courier for shipping fish and coral. This approach is chosen to ensure responsible and ethical transportation of the livestock.
Livestock Shipping Fee: The livestock shipping fee charged to customers of £19.99 does not cover the true cost, and therefore, there is a minimum spend requirement of £30.00 before the option for livestock shipping becomes available.
Pre-Arranged Delivery: The store never ships livestock without first arranging a suitable delivery day. Before dispatching the livestock, the store must confirm the agreed-upon delivery day with the customer.
Saturday Delivery Confirmation: Customers who choose Saturday delivery must have their availability confirmed for the upcoming Saturday before the store sends out the livestock. This confirmation ensures that the livestock can be received promptly.
Failure to wait for livestock: Not waiting for livestock, even if there is a reasonable delay, or cancelling an order after it has been dispatched will lead to you incurring charges for an emergency return to the base. Additionally, any losses of livestock will also be charged to you. Please be aware that the items you are ordering are living creatures – livestock. We kindly ask that you refrain from ordering livestock if you are unable to accommodate the possibility of a delayed delivery.
These terms and conditions are a fundamental aspect of our policy. Our primary goal is to dissuade individuals who could react negatively to a delayed delivery and subsequently request order cancellations. It is of utmost importance to underscore that your order pertains to living creatures, not mere inanimate objects. In the event of an occasional delay, it is crucial that you respond in a rational and responsible manner, taking into account the welfare of the livestock. We kindly request that you refrain from placing an order for livestock if you tend to react strongly to such situations. By proceeding with the order of livestock, you indicate your acceptance and agreement to abide by these specified terms and conditions.
Signature Requirement: Livestock deliveries require a signature upon receipt and cannot be left in a safe location. This precaution ensures proper handling and the well-being of the livestock.
Geographic Restrictions: The courier has strict geographic restrictions for livestock deliveries. Unfortunately, deliveries to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, and certain Scottish offshore postcodes may not be possible. Customers are encouraged to contact the store via email to confirm if livestock delivery is available in their area.
Minimum Order Value and Order Cancellations: The store has a minimum order value of £30 for livestock shipping. Additionally, the store reserves the right to cancel orders that are deemed high-risk or involve a high number of single tropical freshwater fish species.
