Great Small Aquarium

I recently purchased the aquarium after downsizing from much larger ones. So far this has been a wonderful tank with no problems at all. The filter is quiet, we've added a heater and currently have 2 male guppies and 3 live plants. Hope to add a couple more of both once the tank has cycled. This IS a very small tank though, so the breeds of fish are very limited. Rule of thumb is 1" of fish per gallon of tank, and this is if it's a 'thin' fish, not wide. Definately NOT for goldfish. Do your homework first. If you are limited on space and would enjoy a couple of small fish or a betta, this is the perfect tank!

Nice little tank!! small but nice. I am now thinking of getting a 30 gal. for my angelfhish. The only problem is that your fish out grow it pretty fast. It has a bio-wheel, thats a plus. Cheap 2, 20-30 $ more anywhere else. The acrylic gets scratches really easy.

I have to say, this is a great value at Walmart. I have not seen it cheaper ANYWHERE (and trust me, I've checked!). It is really a very attractive tank. The pros are: it is much less messy-looking than your typical tank. All the filtration equipment is built in to the hood. Also, it comes with a cord organizer which attaches to the back corner of the tank, which adds to the overall clean look. Also, it is acrylic, which is very durable (though you can still scratch it). The cons are: if you plan on keeping tropical fish in it (and I wouldn't really recommend keeping goldfish in here - they'll grow out of this 6 gallon), you will have to buy a heater, since it is not already built in to the system. Secondly, the way the hood is set up makes it difficult to feed without dumping some flakes into the filter itself. Additionally, for any aquarium maintenance you will have to take off the full hood, which is slightly annoying (but only enough for me to knock off one star). Buy it, it's a great value and very cute to boot.

I've purchased two of these from Wal-Mart and haven't had any issues regarding defects or quality. I'm sure there are folks who have had different experiences, but those are the exceptions, not the norm. I own several tanks with hundreds of fish and this tank is a great value in overall price and size. It's large enough to stock with a decent school of fish, and not overtax the filtration or bioload. I have a problem with the water overheating in the warm weather. The small quantity of water will really heat up with the light fixture on, so sometimes I end up dumping ice in the tank to keep from boiling my fish. I also keep the lid propped open with a cork to help dissipate some of the heat outward and turn the light off during the hottest part of the day as well. Another caution is that the filtration system does not have a prefilter, which is handy for us with planted tanks. The intake tube tends to clog up with dead plant debris and slow down the water flow so that the biowheel stops turning. It also means that your filter won't last as long because of all the sludge that builds up quickly on it. I've noticed this is more of a warm weather phenomenon, probably because of the warmer water. This is a constant maintenance issue, which is not cool. (ha, ha) My fix is to use a sponge filter for double filtration as insurance for when the biowheel stops turning and I can't make the time to clean the intake valve right away. Still, despite these problems, the aquarium system is a winner in my book. Best value aquarium system through Wal-Mart online. Nice size, good quality. It's a great small tank for a small school of fish. I keep several dozen fish in mine, I use a hydor sponge filter to help boost filtration, tons of live plants, tiny fish like the pygmaeus and habrosus corydoras, exclamation point rasbora, and celestial pearl danio. I also use a small heater for the cold weather.

This aquarium kit is really nice. The aquarium is just the right size to enjoy my betta fish without having to worry about constant water changes. The bio-wheel water filter works like a dream, and the light is really nice and natural-looking without being too harsh for the fish. The size and shape make it attractive, roomy for the fish and easy to watch them! ~ The only thing I didn't like (more importantly, what my fish didn't like) about this set was that the filter has no variable flow rate. Bettas thrive in still or very slow-moving water. Even though mine learned which areas to avoid swimming in so he wasn't pushed around by the current, I felt it wasn't right for him. I have since removed the filter, and my plants and shrimp have done a fine job in keeping the tank clean and the water hospitable (along with appropriate water changes). With a betta the filter really isn't needed, because they are very clean fish. ~ I have had the tank for a few months now and have had no trouble with it. My fish is healthier and happier now than when I bought him. I would definitely suggest this tank to someone who wants to keep just 1-3 small fish. I couldn't find a better value for this type of tank and accessories anywhere else. ~ What lives in my tank: 1 Crowntail Betta Ghost Shrimp Live Plants (mosses and ferns) ~ Accessories that I bought separately: Decorations Floating Thermometer 25-Watt Heater
