Rated 4 out of 5 by Mamatotwo Meh, okay
I bought this tank along with the tank decor for my two boys although I thought I would enjoy it myself. The set up is just kind of okay. It mainly makes everything kind of blue. Even with the glo fish brand products in the tank. I would say it's not as vibrant colored as I was hoping for, but the kids enjoy it and that is what matters. I can't say how it runs as I just set it up. It is a quiet tank but I would not put more than three fish in the tank.

I have this, and it does look amazing. I love my tank, but buying this complete kit wound up costing me more. The filter it comes with is barely adequate. Unless you have only a couple fish, expect to clean your tank a minimum of 2-3 times a week. The whisper filter can not keep up with the bioload of a fully stocked tank. The filter cartridges also need to be replaced like every other week, which will kill your good beneficial bacteria levels, and they're expensive. It doesn't come with a heater, so you need to buy that seperatley also.
My suggestion, buy a plain 10 gallon tank for about $15, purchase the blue LED light which can attach to the inside rim of almost any tank, purchase a heater, and a decent filter (I have a fluval C-2 which I bought online for about $35). You will end up spending about the same when it's all said and done, but the quality of your tank will be much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mazt Nice tank
The only complaint I have is with the hood and light setup. I never did figure out how to mount the light strip and ended up just gluing it to the hood with some marine grade silicone. Works great now. All in all, a nice setup. I have 6 of the glow fish danio's and they seem to really like the tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by catxpa Great Starter but.....
Purchased this 10 gal. for my granddaughter. Put 4 glofish, 1 catfish and 5 neon tetras in it after the 24 hour setup period. Got up the next morning and all 5 neon tetras had been sucked in to the filter. The grooves on the filter are just too big for small fish. There is no way to adjust the suction on the filter that comes with the kit. Will be replacing the filter if she wants any of the smaller fish. Otherwise, it is a great kit, looks beautiful at night.
