MARINELAND® 27 Gallon Cube Aquarium Ensemble
Nice sized tank, well made
I've had this tank just under a year [bought it 01/2014] and I like it very much. It does have a thick rim, so not all hang-on-back filters will fit; I use a canister filter instead. The smaller footprint gives more options for tank placement - it will fit where other tanks won't. It also has a style to it, being a cube - the shape gives the tank extra interest, and allows for more space front-to-back for aquascaping.
The light that comes with this tank is a joke, however. The Marineland Double Bright barely lights the tank, and is totally inadequate for growing live plants [as I do]. I replaced the Double Bright with an Evo 18" LED fixture and my plants are much happier now. Be aware that some extra money will need to be spent unless you don't mind your fish living in the dark.
Overall, I'm very glad I bought this.

This was the best tank I purchased! Just a warning, it is very hard to clean!!! The first time we got it you can't even clean it in a average size sink so we had to wash it in my daughters shower!!! It is very heavy too you need two people to carry it and it can't be a kid it has to be two adults. The filter was very hard to get on every once in a while too so we had to move it out then move it back in which was kinda bad cause we had tile floors and our fishes would go crazy. Other then that this is an excellent tank, hope this helped.

Beautiful tank with a small footprint!
We bought this for our youngest sons room about a week after setting up an Aqueon 36gal bowfront. We bought this one because of space limitations in the room (not enough room for a 36 Bow, but didn't want a 5 -10 gallon tank). If you want an awesome tank but have limited space, buy this tank, you won't regret it.

I got this for my saltwater fish and they loved it! I had a lot of rocks and anemones in there and this tank made them look amazing! It is very sturdy but it is kind of delicate, my mom and I were washing it out and we delicately but it in the sink, and the side of the tank cracked! It was only a little bit, and the tank still held water so that's all that matters! Im very happy with this tank, even though my fish got Ick and died, then we sold the fish tank :(
