Top Fin AquaScene 180 3.5 Gallon Aquarium
Great Tank-Be Aware of Number of Fish/Type
This is a really great aquarium for someone who is just starting out as an aquarist. It would be perfect for a betta (they like the smaller tanks anyway) or a group of neon tetras. I put some male guppies in there, because they stay smaller unlike the females, but you don't want to put more than 3-4 because they need some "breathing room". So I really love this aquarium.
The lights are a lot of fun. The lights are perfect for kids because you can change the colors, and the fish don't seem to mind the flashing colors. I just don't recommend it if that's the only light source for the fish.
Overall, great tank! Just be aware of how many fish you're putting in there.

Great tank - except for the lighting
I have bettas and bought this tank for new betta. I have had it for just over 2 months.
Pros- I LOVE the filter!!!! Mine came with a clip cover that directs the current downwards. This is the only filter that I have not had to rig to keep the current safe for my bettas. If you have bettas you understand the struggle with filters and I have not had to do anything with this, wonderful!!
Cons - the lights. Unless you are looking for 'mood lighting' (And if you are that's fine). But I wanted day lighting and when you put it on just the clear lights it is not that bright. I had to put a desk lamp by it. Also, if you want real plants in there (which I do real plants) that light will not work you will need another light source.
Other than that I really do like this tank. It's a great size, again I LOVE the filter (that can be a huge headache for betta owners) and would buy it again in a heartbeat if it came with a better light source. In fact, I like it enough I could see myself buying it again and just getting another lamp.

Filter stopped working after a week.
I loved this aquarium until the filter started making a weird sound one week after I bought it. The filter then stopped working about 36 hours later. I do like the aquarium just not the filter. I will buying an internal filter to replace the filter included in the box.
