Wonderful little tank

Customer review by MissHaleyDawn

I love this tank very much. This tank was, at my request, a Christmas gift. I'm a college student, and had been wanting a fish to take back my dorm with me. I specifically asked for the fluorescent tank, because I wanted fluorescent decor, NOT fluorescent fish. When researching this product, I was delighted to find that it came with a filter that aerates as well as cleans the water. In it, I have one male betta, Clifford: The Big Red Fish. The filter is extremely quiet; much like the name implies: it is whisper quiet. For those who are complaining of noise issues, by simply placing the filter on a wash cloth, the vibrations from the air pump are drastically cut down. If it is still bothering you, I suggest a check-valve for the air line: this is what turned the low hum of the filter to virtually nonexistent for me. Thus far, I am completely in love with the filter included with this tank. My water has remained crystal clear and the water parameters for my specific breed fish are perfectly maintained. I do however, in keeping with the "be kind to your fishy friends" motto, suggest doing weekly to bi-weekly partial water changes, just to keep the water fresh. The water current churned out by this filter is not bad at all. It is very light, and my betta enjoys swimming against the gentle current from time to time. At first, your filter may churn out a lot of bubbles (You can see this in the second picture). But after a day, the bubbles stopped and have not returned. In addition to the filter, I purchased a small submersible heater (made by Tetra) for my betta fish. Even with the filter and heater, my betta's swim room was not compromised all that much. Do not be deceived by the product packaging, though! The box makes you believe that there is plenty of room for upwards of four plants, in addition to a large rock. Once the filter (and heater if you have a tropical fish) are in, the tank fills up quickly when adding decor. My betta ended up with a rock (similar to the one depicted on the tank box) and one medium sized plant. I like the under-the-tank-storage feature. It keeps my desk area clean and tidy. Some have mentioned being disappointed with the LED lights; I am not. As you can see from my pictures, this tank gets rather bright in the dark, and is still fairly illuminated with lights on in the room. Overall, this is a wonderful product. If properly set up and maintained, this is a perfect starter tank for beginners, college-pet tank, or hospital tank. My betta is happy and so am I. Follow the directions, and you will be too! :) I would NOT recommend this tank for anything other than a single betta, or equally small fish. Shoaling fish are probably not a good idea either, unless kept to a conservative number of three. Goldfish are also a "no," seeing as they produce A LOT of waste, which may overwhelm the small filter. In addition, it is a rule of thumb that one inch of fish needs one gallon of water--and goldfish can easy outgrow this 1.5 gallon tank.

Have had this tank for a month. have really enjoyed it so far. the filter is very quiet and keeps the water in the tank very CLEAN! (at first could hear the vibrations of the air pump alot but just simply put a check valve and that should stop the humming).I have 3 mixed fruit tetras (wich are white fish that have a neon blue or neon pink strip on the top) and a small algae eater for the tank, the tetras actually glow wen they pass thru the black light seam!! I guess since they are small fish it hasnt caused any problem with the space and water capacity. Overall the fish look happy swimming around. Only side affects: i agree with the other reviwers, the led lights dont really light up the whole tank enough to actually make eryting glow, as you can see in the pics only the plant right below the light is the only one that glows.But besides that this tank actually lights up any room very brightly!! .And like another reviewer said, the tank pic on the box makes is seem like theres alot of space to put plant and ornaments but there is not. As you can c in my pic i only put three medium glow plants and was not able to put the rock cuz it would not leve enough space for the fish to swim in. Besides the three plants i also bought a heater for the tetras since they are tropical fish so u got to take that into account for space if you're guna have tropical fish. BUt overall, for a beginner tank, its a nice looking tank ;) .

I adore this product. This is the first fish tank I've ever owned. I use it for my betta, Ernie. Even though betta don't require anything but a bowl, I thought this would be great,because I don't like the small bowls most betta are kept in and it seemed easy enough to use. Assembly was easy and not confusing. Not only do I love the tank,Ernie absolutely loves it. It's low maintenance,but of course you should still change water at least once a week. It's easy to use and it's looks great. Before purchasing a fish,I would recommend doing your research though. I learned so much from just browsing the web. The tank is somewhat small,so I would recommend 3-4 small fish at most. I highly recommended this tank for a first time fish owner or someone who just wants a tank to keep a few fish in.

its a cute aquarium. however i was highly dissapointed with the light that it comes with. I spent $6 a fish to get the glo fish thinking it would look awesome but the light doesnt light up the tank enough to really show off the fish.
