I received this as a birthday present two years ago, so I can give long-term information about this product. Information:
Cheap plastic, as per usual.
Bulges out the back so that the lid does not fit very well
The "Color Changing Light" barely worked when I received it new, and I chucked it within a month because it refused to work.
Filter worked for me for about 2-3 months and then quit working. Fish life:
I tried and failed to keep guppies. No fish would last more than a month. I don't know if this is because of the tank, water, or another factor, but I worked hard to keep it clean to no prevail.
Finally, three zebra danios proved to be up to the task. They are extremely hardy fish, and aren't very pretty but seem to be living pretty well. However, one of the three fish mysteriously disappeared about a week ago. I haven't gotten around to cleaning the tank yet, but I am afraid it died and then was buried under the gravel. The other two are not in the best shape but are making it. Overall, over two years:
The filter has broken
The "Color Changing Light" Mechanism is not working
The excuse for an air stone has clogged
The cheap plastic tank is bulging out ...and I need a new tank...please comment what 3-5 gallon tanks are good for little schooling fish (and relatively cheap, please, thirty dollars or less)
