I have had gold fish, snails, and bettas in your 1 gallon pentagon tank but this is my first time with a 5 and I must say I love it!!! I have a large leopard frog tadpole (Frogger), 3 neon tetras (Phineas, Ferb, and Perry), a black kuhli loach (Pangio), and an african dwarf frog (Drifter), and they all seem to like it! GREAT product!!!! very happy :) !!!!!!!

When I ordered this item online it arrived shattered in the box. It was very poorly packaged for a glass aquarium. There was no bubble wrap or styrofoam for protection, only paper. If you want this aquarium I highly advise buying it at the store, and for the price its worth upgrading to the ten gallon. You will appreciate it later. I love this mini aquarium and it is well constructed for the cost. It includes everything to get started minus the gravel, etc. I currently keep my Betta fish Nerite snail, Otto, and several Ghost shrimp in this tank. I changed the stock incandescent bulb out with a 15 watt max CFL "Daylight" bulb that I bought from Lowes. This bulb makes a huge difference in the appearance of the aquarium and growth of the plants. I also spray painted the whole inside of the canopy gloss white for better reflection. This seems to have helped also, and the tank has turned out really nice. Excellent set-up for any beginner or experience fish enthusiast. Also makes a nice grow tank or quarantine tank.

Bought this aquarium about 3 weeks ago. Set it up, and everything worked great. Only flaw is that the suction from the filter is way too strong for small fish. My angelfish fought the current every time it swam over to that half of the tank.. Had to pull up the tube about half an inch and wedge a piece of plastic underneath it. Slowed the flow of water a little, but doesn't bother my fish now.

When I received this tank & opened it, it was cracked all the way down the side so I had to return it the same day which was a bummer. :/ But it was cheaper at the store & I also got 2 free plants in the box! So far I like the aquarium, it's quiet & hopefully since the filter is so big it will stay clean and my little goldfish love playing in the waterfall. :)

The instruction manual says I have to wait 24 hours before putting fish in, that way the filter can work. Do I actually have to wait for the filter, or can I go ahead and put my fish it? Filter Model # 5-15

  • A. Yes, I would also wait longer for the fish tank to be cycled before you put any fish in it. If you put fish in right away in a un-cycled fish tank the fish will just die.

  • A. Wait! You need the tank to be cycled before you put any fish in. Generally pet stores will tell you to wait six weeks to make sure the chemicals are right for the fish
