Aqueon® 1 Gallon MiniBow Desktop Aquarium Kit
Nice tank, happy fish.
Attractive, easy to use and clean tank.
I am not giving 5 stars because the bulb seems rather fragile and blows at far to insignificant of a bump when setting the lid down, and the tank leaks when the filter needs replacing.
Also, although when I contacted Aqueon about the leaking tank they immediately told me the problem (they were right, filter needed replacing) this information should be far more prominent in their literature/instructions/help because I see most of the poor reviews here are due to this very issue; most people unaware that a dirty filter is the culprit.
But now that I know, its all good and the tank does what its supposed to (keep water in and betta happy).

Excellent value for the money!
I bought this product recently for my first ever pet Betta fish, and I have to say that I love it! I got it on a sale for about $22 and since I am a beginner, this was a great kit because it comes with everything you need to get started. Michael Douglas (my betta) and I could not be happier! I got some natural river rocks, 2 small plants, a bridge (so he has a hiding place), and a very small zebra snail to keep him company and he seems so happy! This kit is great and the filter is very quiet, which is nice because I keep him in my office at work. However, I feel the current the filter produces is a little strong for him. I turn it off during feeding time because it seems to push all the food straight to the bottom if I don't. Overall, this tank is excellent for beginners and makes a great home for a betta fish!

I bought this for my son's beta and snail because I was tired of cleaning his non- filtered tank weekly. We had it 5 months before we noticed it was pouring water out of the top near the filter. This soaked his book shelf and carpet. I cleaned the tank and replaced the filter, which appeared to fix it. Here we are, a week later and half of the water has poured out of the tank, ruining the wood on his book shelf. I don't have the box any more and doubt the store will take it back but I am definitely getting a different brand tank. This has been such a mess.

Thought this was going to be a great tank because it was super quiet. It started leaking after 2 months. We replaced the filter thinking that was the problem but it continued to leak. Poor quality and the worst part was we missed the 60 day return window. I do NOT recommend this tank.
