Top Fin 5.5 Gal Aquarium Starter Kit
Good for starters.
I got this starter kit on Black Friday for my betta. The tank I thought was perfect when I opened it up and placed it where I wanted. It's a great size for a desk or in this case a night stand. The glue isn't the best but not that noticeable. The filter isn't the greatest. It's a little loud compared to the better filters. For a betta yes, it is too strong. I just listened to others and did the bottle baffle. Which is easy. Just make sure it's not sharp or it can hurt their fins. My betta loves it, and the space is big enough for the decor I wanted. The hood, like mentioned before is not what is pictured. But I'm happy with the hood. It's convenient enough to lift and feed him. There is a feeding hole but I like to bond with him a bit. Plus he has a certain spot of the tank he likes to eat. As for lighting, not the best. You have to get hardy plants if going live. I might change out the filter for a better one, but other than that, so far so good. The price was right. And my betta loves all the space. I even added two snails and a few shrimp. Also, a side note my betta could see his reflection in some spots and flared a bit. I just put a temporary price of paper to fix it until I get a background.

Not as advertised..
The hood that I got with my tank was a flat, cheap looking piece of plastic. There is a feeding hole and a slot for the filter. The light was not as described either, it was a snap on the hood LED strip like thing. The glue isn't as clear or clean looking as I imagined. It's a bit milky and done poorly (messy job).
I can't comment much on the filter because I haven't tried it and I use one that doesn't have a strong current for my betta.
Overall, I wish it was the tank that was pictured. I liked how the picture had a feeding door, instead of the open hole.

Perfect betta home
Got this to house a betta and it's pretty perfect for the small space I live in. The filter it comes with works better than I thought it would and I've had no problems with the hood or anything.
