An okay beginners tankI purchased the TopFin 25g bow front in 9/2014. It is my first aquarium. Over the last months, I have enjoyed most of it.
The TopFin 30 filter that it came with is decent. A good choice for a back up or secondary filter. The first up grade I made was replacing the filter with the Fluval Aquaclear 50. This new filter has worked wonderfully. I keep the TopFin 30 for a back up.
The in box heater has worked well and I have no complaints.
The one downside to the TopFin 25g Bow Front is the hood. It doesn't sit tightly on top of the aquarium. Water drips constantly from the hood. It also does not have a full length opening which means that you must fully remove the hood for cleaning. I like to scrub the sides of the tank in between water changes. This becomes difficult because I must remove the hood to do this. Which means I also must remove the light source. It becomes a little difficult to see growing algae or other water marks on the side of the tank without the light. It also makes debris harder to see while vacuuming.
I wish I had bought a larger tank (36 or 45) and one with a fully opening hood.
