Originally we were looking at the Aquarius GloFish 360 Top Mounted 3-Gallon tank (sold in the stores), but after reading a review that suggested the 6-gallon might work better we bought this one instead (only available online). We have had it for a month and so far we love this tank. Even though the fish store sales clerk recommended that we only place 3-5 medium to small fish in a 6-gallon tank, we have managed to keep 8 fish alive (1 Electric Green Barb GloFish; this one is really bright with the tank's lights + the fish is genetically modified and its color will never fade, 1 pink GloFish; had three and two died, 4 Neon Tetras; had five and one died; 1 Chinese Algae Eater and 1 albino cory; my favorite to watch + favorite food is Omega One veggie rounds. Plus 3 large algae eating blue snails; all three are quite hearty and have survived. Tip: the sales clerk advised us to get the snails to help keep the tank clean, but after reading up on the matter I would not recommend introducing snails to your tank (even though tiny snails can hitchhike on any fish or live plant), they have the potential to reproduce by the hundreds and are very hard to eradicate. Additional items we purchased that did not come with the tank: decor, net, gravel, water treatment products, various food products, a submersible aquarium heater and an air pump (the pump creates a current in the water, to prevent parts of the tank from becoming stagnant). For the tank, our fish and related products we have paid approximately $150.00.

I received this tank as a Christmas gift and I just set it up last night. The tank was ordered online and when I received it, I was quite disappointed because it arrived with several scratches on it that didn't appear to happen during shipping. Because this item isn't carried in many stores and believing that the next one would arrive the same way, I decided to keep it. After completely setting up the tank, the scratches aren't visible. Beautiful tank once decorated. Love the three light settings and its definitely a eye catcher. The pump/filter system seems a little small/weak for this size tank, but time will tell. Extremely happy with this tank so far :-)

I had this item shipped to the store, and picked it up when it arrived. When I got home and opened the box, the first thing I noticed was a crack in the aquarium. It claims to be shatterproof, according to the labeling on the box. Overall, nice design, and nice aquarium, but wish I didn't get it broken.

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.

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.

  • A. Any really - I added a group of tropical fish that I liked (non glow ones) and added my own mini heater I picked up from the fish section and it works like any tank. The special lights are for showing off glow fish - but I don't have any of that type.

  • A. You can add a betta, guppies, platys, swordtails, black mollies, zebra danios, white clouds, corydoras catfish or GloFish. Don't overcrowd, start out with one fish and wait a couple days before you add another. You can go with an inch of fish per gallon so 3 to 4 fish are okay.

  • A. The official recommendation is an inch of fish per gallon of water. I put in 6 glo fish and 2 tetras. No problem so far but it's still early in the game.

  • A. You can get whatever type filter setup you want, I ditched the one that came with and chose a bigger size, sold at Walmart and now I just buy the MEDIUM sized cartridge, it may be only six gallon tank but I have a filter for a 20 to 30 gallon one, elimiantes constant water changes.

  • A. Mine didn't come w/ an undergravel filter - just the normal type that hangs at the top. I suppose you could find one that may fit the bottom at Petsmart or petco though.
