Top Fin 5.5 Gal Aquarium Starter Kit
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.

This is my second one of these tanks. Wow did they make some changes. First they are now using black silicone sealer. The LED light is much better, unfortunately a little to bright for my Betta. The top now has a small feeding door instead of the old hole in the top. I put a Whisper 10i filter in, which by the way they have also changed for the better. I love the new sleek clean look of this tank and my Betta seems to be very happy. Great buy if your looking for a small attractive tank.

Great Starter Tank!
I got this tank because I really wanted to have a small simple tank in my university dorm in which I could have a variety of a few small fish. The tank itself is really good and the hood fits a bunch of Hang-On-Back filters which was a major factor in choosing this tank. The filter this comes with was fairly quiet on the first night and then got louder. I tried modifying it to see if would make a noticeable difference but I eventually scrapped the idea and just go the AquaClear 20 instead (A fantastic and quiet filter I totally recommend). The only thing I really have to say about this tank is that it is definitely good for the price I just don't recommend using the filter it comes with in the same room you sleep in.
