Originally we were looking at the Aquarius GloFish 360 Top Mounted 3-Gallon tank (sold in the stores), but after reading a review that suggested the 6-gallon might work better we bought this one instead (only available online). We have had it for a month and so far we love this tank. Even though the fish store sales clerk recommended that we only place 3-5 medium to small fish in a 6-gallon tank, we have managed to keep 8 fish alive (1 Electric Green Barb GloFish; this one is really bright with the tank's lights + the fish is genetically modified and its color will never fade, 1 pink GloFish; had three and two died, 4 Neon Tetras; had five and one died; 1 Chinese Algae Eater and 1 albino cory; my favorite to watch + favorite food is Omega One veggie rounds. Plus 3 large algae eating blue snails; all three are quite hearty and have survived. Tip: the sales clerk advised us to get the snails to help keep the tank clean, but after reading up on the matter I would not recommend introducing snails to your tank (even though tiny snails can hitchhike on any fish or live plant), they have the potential to reproduce by the hundreds and are very hard to eradicate. Additional items we purchased that did not come with the tank: decor, net, gravel, water treatment products, various food products, a submersible aquarium heater and an air pump (the pump creates a current in the water, to prevent parts of the tank from becoming stagnant). For the tank, our fish and related products we have paid approximately $150.00.
