Rated 5 out of 5 by ChumOfChums It does have THREE DIFFERENT LIGHT SETTINGS.
One of the features that I was hoping for but not able to gather from the Walmart.com product description, is that this aquarium would have a regular lighting setting as well as the "Glo" or Black Light Effect setting. IT DOES! In fact, it has THREE DIFFERENT LIGHT SETTINGS. It has the Black Light Glo as shown in the product photo, a Regular (or what I would refer to as Daylight or White Light) Setting, and a Setting which is a Combination of White Light and the Glo Light Setting. You can also turn the light off altogether. I was hoping I wouldn't be stuck with just the Glo Setting. I ordered this aquarium, and the gamble paid off!
I think this is a really good deal for the value. I priced other comparable tanks of this shape and size and the only other ones that I could find that were six gallon cylinders were starting at $89.99.
I have only one thing that I would caution you about. Your aquarium will probably have to come thru Fed-Ex or Ship-to-Site. There was a special tag in the box that says you have to call a special number if you want to return it. You can't return it to Walmart if you have it shipped to your house, evidently. Be sure to check before you start filling it with water to see that it doesn't have any major scratches - as it is made out of a plastic substance. Mine did have a couple of rubs on one side. I just used this as the backside. It wasn't a big deal to me. When it is filled with water, you can't even tell.

This tank looks more like a 10-15 gallon tank. I filled this tank with 7 plants, 1 snail and 6 platies/balloon mollies and it looks like a million bucks! The only downside to this tank is that it is not as clear as an acrylic tank. The lights have different colors and really show off the fishs colors. You will pay almost $50 for this tank anywhere else. This tank is easy to maintain and also comes with an internal filter which seems to do the job. You can't go wrong with this tank and that price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMG87 Great aquarium for small space or starter
The product quality was good and easy to setup. You will need some items to go with it. Colored sand, heater if you want tropical fish, thermometer, plastic plants, fish food and fish.

First off,this thing is kinda big.Second,despite numerous rants about the filter,I see nothing wrong with it.Third,The lights.What else can I say about the blue light? It truly sets my living room's ambiance...sheer beauty.Fourth,the Rat Pack (Sammy,Frank and Dean) seem to like their new home.
Tips:DON'T count on moving it while it's full.You'll have a wet mess on your hands.
WHAT IT DOESN'T COME WITH:an undergravel filter
WHAT IT DOES COME WITH: The tank itself,the hood,the light,power supply for the light,a 45 gph filter (that accepts Tetra small sized cartridges),a trial sized pack of fish food and a trial sized pack of water conditioner.
For beginners and non beginners alike,I like it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cat245 I didn't know what to expect with the size of the tank. But to my surprise, it is exactly what I was looking for. It has a nice size height, the colors at night are great. I put the fish in the tank, and I just love looking at it. My friends are even asking where I bought it from. The price is just right. Thanks Walmart.
