An inexpensive tank!

Customer review by South323Gate

5.0 stars by South323Gate

Overall this tank has been doing a great job in housing my many pets ranging from fish, reptiles, hamsters, tarantulas, scorpions, etc... Its affordable and sells at a much lower price than Petco or Petsmarts. Unfortunately it's not tempered glass but it can withstand the weight of a full tank (with water and/or heavy rocks). I currently own 5 of these tanks and I custom build my own lids to fit my pets needs, I would defiantly recommend this product!

I bought the 10 gallon aquarium and I couldn't be happier with it! It actually seems bigger than my old 15 gallon! For the size of the tank, it is at the low cost of $10! It's perfect for my comunity tank of 1 betta fish, 2 mickey mouse platies, 4 dwarf rasboras, and 1 cherry red shrimp! I recommend this product to any begginner starting their first community tank!!

if so, how secure is it?
by an anonymous customer 12/7/2008
  • No lid or hood sold with it, purchased separately and available online at a site called, "Pet Solutions". It is a drop-in wrap around full hood, it doesn't have any fittings to secure it, but it is a snug fit. However, it would not stop an escape artist like an octopus from getting out. It would keep small jumping koi in, but even a lobster going through a molting phase would probably be motivated enough to push the hood open in hopes of finding a different, hidden location to go through the vulnerable molting. Also, the plastic hood has areas that can be cut out for placement of filter(s), etc. All of which should be installed as tightly as possible.

  • No lid. Buy the one that is sold separately. I think its about 4 dollars and it fits perfectly.

  • No the lid is seperate. The lid I got also from is secure but a little tricky to lock down. I suggest going to a petsmart or pet shop to look at the lids and choose from there.

  • It does'nt come with a lid, but if you are using it for reptiles they have a lid for it in the same area where you would have found the tank. It has a screen top and two little hatches you can open to gain access inside. It also has little locks on the edges to secure it to the top of the tank. They're about 5-7 bucks.

  • Not how many, but how much. Rule of thumb for basic setups is one inch of fish or equivalent per gallon. 10 gallons = 10 inches of fish. So, ten 1 inch fish, OR one 10 inch fish, OR 2 one and a half inch fish with 1 seven inch eel (or whatever) for a total of 1 inch per gallon, etc. Usually invertebrates are NOT factored into this formula, shrimp, snails, etc. Those types of critters are able to exist in overpopulated environments with little threat to their livelihood. Main concerns with tank occupancy are adjusting beneficial bacterial levels (so water toxins remain constant and don't fluctuate), amount and type of dissolved gasses (so suffocation or retardation doesn't occur, even during midnight power loss), and selecting a suitable community of co-habitable fish. Factors to consider should include, optimum temperature levels, food types and frequency of feeding required, behaviour type, preferred swimming depth, and specific environmental concerns; such as, needing smooth sediment to avoid bodily injury OR rough sediment to encourage burrowing behavior and trap floating food for bottom feeders, etc.

  • look at the fish you going to buy at pets mart if it says 1-10 gallons then you can buy it. it says how you can buy of that kind of that fish that would work best.

  • A basic rule of thumb is one inch of fish (adult size) per gallon of water. The larger the fish, the fewer you can have. So you could have ten 1-inch fish or five 2-inch fish or three 3-inch fish. This is assuming you have an adequate filter and do frequent partial water changes.

  • it is recommended that you have no more then 10 fish in that tank the general rule is 1in per fish per gallon. so if you get a fish that grows 3in long, 5 in, and 2in you can only have three fish. hope this helps

  • TKAB is right. 1 gallon of water per inch of fish... for fish 3 inches in length and less. For fish greater than 3 inches in length, 2 gallons of water per inch of fish. Keep in mind that this rule is general. Some fish need more space depending on their territoriality, energy level, body shape/size, and waste production. For example, goldfish require more space than your typical tropical fish, mostly because they produce so much waste. One fancy goldfish (in other words, the kind with fancy fins and strange body shapes) requires 29 gallons all to itself. And as for Tiger Barbs, they need a longer tank so that they can zip around. Think of them as a high-energy dog who needs a big yard to run in! It pays to do your research on the species you purchase. Every one will have its own specific individual needs.

  • General rule is 1 inch of fish for every gallon. For example. 5 fish that are 2" long.
