Great little aquarium! We have a 90 gallon, a 50 gallon, and a 10 gallon tank. My husband bought this little tank for in the kichen to replace an expensive plasic designer tank....that began to leak after 3 yrs. This tank is well made...up to par with our other expensive tanks. Very happy with quality. Great little size. I just popped a small heater in and was good to go. I would highly recommend this tank.

I debated for a few days on whether or not i wanted to purchase this tank...i am so happy that i did!I absolutely love this tank!!I have female Betta fish that live in this tank together and they love it as well!!Some people say the water pressure coming out of the filter is too strong..all you have to do is pull the black tube up a little and the pressure gets slower.Overall i'm definitely pleased with this great little tank!!Definitely worth the money!!

I bought this at a Walmart store and it was better than I expected. For merely 30 bucks, you get pretty much all you need for fish, besides buying a heater which you can do right on their website (the heater works great too). The tank is a great size for placing beside your desk and takes very little effort to clean. The people who are giving the tank low ratings are not considering the package they are getting. The filter works great and makes NO noise. It cleans the water well and is in fact a very strong filter. You can lower the intensity by moving the tube up from the filter. The light bulb provided is also very bright. All in all, a great buy and great starting aquarium. I have been a fish keeper for over 3 years I have no complaints and I have actually switched from a 20 gallon to this 5 gallon.

Just bought it for my beta and also got a castle and a couple of plants and it just looks great. I shopped around for about a week and after seeing the review that said that it was 30 I called the Walmart closest to me and they said that it was 29.97 so I immediately went there and picked it up. So, if you are interested in this aquarium then it looks like it's a good bet that it's 30 instead of the 50 that it's going for online. I would recommend to a best friend.

This product is perfect for a child's first fish tank. We've only had it for a little amount of time but everything is working wonderful! My son is six and it's perfect size for him to put in his room and to help me clean. I looked at every website possible and the was cheap and worth every cent.

  • A. I have 2 Mollies in the tank, and they are doing very well. I've also been told that guppies, platys, and swordtails do well in these tanks. General rule, for tropical fish (not goldfish), is an inch of fish per gallon of water. Personally, I don't like to put that many fish in a tank. Especially my little 5 gallon. ( I only have 5 fish in my 30 gallon.) Something I have learned the hard way......if you put more than one or two goldfish in a 5 gallon tank, be ready to do frequent water changes, and keep an eye on the ammonia level. So, I've been staying away from the goldfish, and sticking with the smaller tropicals instead. Hope that helps! : )

  • A. The tank would be good for a betta and a couple of snails. Turtles get WAY too big to be kept in such small tanks, and so do goldfish. It would be cruel to keep these animals together because they all have different needs and come from different parts of the world. Goldfish are coldwater pond fish, bettas are tropical, and a turtle could very well EAT both of them! Please research each fish before considering them!

  • A. The Tetra Setup Guide said: "For freshwater fish, allow one gallon of water per inch of mature fish. For goldfish, allow 2-3 gallons per inch of mature fish"
