MANSFIELD, Mass. – Aquarium enthusiasts know that water must be in constant motion in order to maintain healthy oxygen levels in aquariums.  Air pumps are the easiest and most efficient way to accomplish this; however, they can be quite noisy.  The new Fluval Q series of aquarium air pumps from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. solve the noise problem, as they are among the quietest air pumps the company has ever offered and their superior performance is guaranteed to satisfy even the most discriminating fishkeepers.

The sleek, attractive and durable exterior of the Fluval Q Series Air Pumps hides an extremely quiet yet powerful efficiency on the inside.  The Q Series pumps have a unique advanced swing-arm and diaphragm design that enables them to produce consistent, reliable air flow, making them ideal for airstones, corner filters, under-gravel filters and ornaments.  Additionally, the air flow of the Q2, the largest of the Q Series pumps, is completely adjustable, providing maximized airflow precision that can be customized for the aquarium’s specific needs.

The Fluval Q Series Air Pumps are virtually silent in their operation, thanks to double wall construction, a noise-suppressing baffle chamber and rubber feet that act as shock absorbers to deaden sound.  The rubber feet also help to ensure the Q Series pumps stay in place and don’t “walk” themselves across a counter or table top, as some air pumps are known to do.

Ideal for both saltwater and freshwater aquarium environments, the Fluval Q Series Air Pumps come in three sizes to accommodate many tank sizes:  Q.5, for aquariums up to 190 L (50 U.S. gal); Q1, for aquariums up to 300 L (80 U.S. gal); and Q2, for aquariums up to 600 L (160 U.S. gal).  The MSRP’s for the Fluval Q Series Air Pumps are $28.99-$48.99 and they are available online and at fine pet and aquarium retailers nationwide.  For more information, visit or call 1‐800‐225‐2700.
