I was a tad skeptical with the price being only $25.00, but I LOVE this tank!!! It looks bigger than 5 gallons, the light & filter it comes with are great & my betta loves it as much as I do!!! The filter IS a tad strong for a betta, but once you baffle it, it's all good! :) Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with this tank kit!!!!

I got one of these for each of my bettas. They LOVE it. I keep live, low light plants in all of them and the light bulb does a great job keeping them looking good. The filter is easy to baffle and you can replace it if you ever want a change. It's not integrated, which is nice. A 25 watt heater fits nicely along the short side and keeps all my bettas toasty and healthy. Weekly water changes and vacuuming are a cinch with the pop up lid. It's an awesome tank for the money. Highly recommend.

This is a perfect starter tank. We bought it for our 2 year old's room & he loves it. It definitely looks bigger than 5 gallons. The light is a little bright, but he goes to sleep with it on (rather than his night light) watching his fish so its not too bad. I did have to turn down the filter so the fish weren't getting pushed across the tank from the water coming down into the tank. We decided on guppies & neon tetras and added a few decorations, gravel, heater, and an air pump. Overall this is the best I found from searching in local pet stores and online. The only thing I don't like is the small "feeding door". It should be a little bit wider because it is difficult to get the flakes in without spilling them. Its just a bit awkward the way it opens. But its easy enough to lift the whole lid to let my son feed the fish so I would definitely recommend this product.

Our Betta went from a Gold Fish Bowl to a 1 gal. Tank to this spacious 5 gal. Tank. It was worth the trial and error in getting Azul a place where he could have a warm heater put in. Its really a beautifully shaped Tank and brightens up our living room. Would totally recommend for first time Betta owners...as I was talked into this, by a 10 yr. old, because he looked at us at the pet store!

Like other reviewers, I was skeptical of the quality of this fish tank at the $25-$30 price, but have been absolutely thrilled and amazed by what a great product it really is. My 2 1/2 yr old son won a goldfish at the local fall carnival, and after a month in a vase, having to change the water everyday, and constantly fighting off our 3 cats, I had no choice but to concede that we needed a real fish tank for "Goldy". I love that this tank is one seamless piece and that it includes not only the hood and light, but also a great filter. There is also 2 extra pop out panels in the back of the hood to add a heater or other accessory as you see fit. I really love that the hood is hinged so if you need to access the tank, you don't have to pull the hood off, it just flips up giving you full access, even with the filter system on the back of the tank!! Also, the little flip door on the front of the hood is perfect for feeding time, ecspecially for the little ones who always want to help. Even the cats love to just lay in front of the tank and watch the fish...they are no longer trying to go fishing. It's great not having to keep a constant eye on them, and knowing that the fish are safe. We all love this fish tank so much that we are getting another one to replace my daughter's $50 3gal. tank.

  • A. The hood swings up on a hinge so you don't have to take it off to access the inside of the tank. The hood is easy to remove from the hinges if you do want to take it completely off, and can be put back on the hinges. There is a little swinging food door at the front of the hood so you don't have to open it to feed. Be aware that the hood in its fully open position adds to the height - about 22" total - if you are planning to put the aquarium on a shelf.
