I've had it 1 week aand then the LED started flashing so fast it was freaking the my fish I had to unplug it and take it out
I had hoped that this would be a good starter tank for myself and my toddler, however I was left disappointed. I have had this tank for shortly longer than a month and had hoped that I would learn to be ok with the tank but I am not. I have the 3 Gallon half moon bubbling LED.
The factors that I dislike the most are:
The light and bubbles need to be unplugged to be shut off
For the bubbling LED light there is a tube and a wire that come from the top of the tank and connect to the disk which is hard to keep submerged and only half of my bubbles work unless it is cranked up to high which disturbs the fish.
The filter is very very loud.
My tank has a fog in the back on one side.
I have since purchase added a small heater and an internal thermometer.
The top is all clear plastic and gets dirty looking after a short time.
The feeding hole is small and awkward for a child to try to use.
Currently the tank is surrounded by wires, loud and disappointing. :(
It is looking like I am going to have to start over and just throw the money I put into this tank into the garbage.
I bought this a few days ago for my beta, Bluey, and he loves it. At first he was afraid of the bubbles, but now he plays with them. I would recomend everyone get it.
I'm in love with this tank ! Little piece of ocean in my home :) xo I adore this aquarium ! Anyone who don't want a 10 gal tank and wants a beta fish or few guppies this is the tank for you ! :) takes time to set up but if your patient it works very well !! Love it !!! make sure to condition the water and clean the tank with bio cleaner for fish, and clean the rocks plants etc... Also let the water sit fur day or so for right temp for beta fish and guppies :)... I give this tank a 10 star :) love it !!!
Agree with others. LED/bubbler does not stay down no matter how much gravel I try and put around it to weight it. Filter is loud and bubbles from the top come out, making sure I wipe down the lid once in a while to clean debris from the filter off. Do not like the tubes/cord from the lights showing in the tank. Not exactly like the photo appears. And if you don't know about space requirements for goldfish....you can't put as many in it as the photo would make you believe. 1...possibly 2 would be max. I've had it 10 days and I'll be returning it to the store soon. Also, when filled with water, the back bows out slightly and occasionally the lid doesn't catch the lip right and will fall in if I'm not careful.
I am falling in love with this product. It gives me the piece of mind of owning fishes as pet. Beside the light glow in the dark, I enjoy the quiet filter inside.
This is a great small aquarium for a desk top and office environment. It is compact and extremely quiet. The filter is ok, but I only have one goldfish and have had to change the filter twice a month. Buyers need to understand that like with most small tanks, this tank took almost 5 weeks and daily partial water changes to finally cycle and balance safely. Great tank for a couple of fish, if you want more fish then go with a bigger tank. I love it and it works prefect for me.
I have this little tank in my office with a betta in it and I absolutely love it! any little kids that come in love to watch Leo (my bettas name is Leo). he's so happy, makes huge bubble nests and he's probably the healthiest fish i've ever owned! this tank though is seriously perfect for a betta, its a great size and having a filter in it helps so you don't have to do a full water change every day! I could go on forever about how awesome this tank is!
My 3yr old son wanted a fish so we bought him a betta and this for a starter kit. It was a bit frustrating trying to get the bubble and pump flow to work at the same time but I got it and I must say the bubble affect is beautiful. The red one went out after a few days but I took it out n moved it a bit and it came back on yay! The colors are beautiful and make a nice reflection on my sons ceiling as a bouns a great night light affect. All in all we love it.
It's a cool container, but the filter is quite loud and it does not make any bubbles (like the picture on the box would imply) - just light. I'm using it without the filter for my beta.
My daughter received this for her 4th birthday. We were disappointed when we noticed the green LED didn't light up after we had set the tank up. I called customer service the next day and the representative was extremely helpful. We will definitely keep Tetra brand at the top of our list when we're ready to graduate to a bigger tank!
I purchased this tank for a little desk top aquarium. Within 24 hours one of the bulbs went out. I have contacted the company and I am waiting for a response. I hope they send a replacement. Other than that, it is a great little tank for a desktop.
When I bought this tank the lid was missing so I contacted Tetra Care online. They quickly called me and replaced the lid with more than I asked for. They were very helpful and kind and I highly recommend purchasing this tank and other items from this company. :)
I bought the 1 gallon tank about a week ago, and have had no problems with it. I have a single male betta and he is doing great in this tank. Enough room for him to swim around. The filter and bubbler work great! It looks great in my office.
This tank is starting to prove itself! I am planning to get a single male betta,and/or some ghost shrimp, and I bet the tank will work out very well!
Nice little tank if you have your own tiny filter and a quieter air pump horribly loud air pump, horrible filtration system, high water pressure in such a small space
When I first got it the filter worked fine but the bubbles never worked. Now, after a few weeks even the filter does not work. I don't recommend this.
I have never owned any kind of fish before and this aquarium is just right
to start with. Thank You
LED lights don't last very long one of the three has gone out on me after only three weeks
This is a great aquarium for novices getting started in this hobby.
