MARINELAND® Half-Moon Desktop Aquarium
Poor filter and worse customer service Marineland!
I LOVE the tank itself, however, the 10i Whisper filter that comes with it overflowed (Google it - I wish I had) and is not adjustable to slow the flow down. I came home to a soaking wet floor and did not realize it was the filter, I thought the tank was leaking! I ended up cracking the tank in my haste to empty it and now I have a cracked tank and have to buy a whole new kit as Marineland does not sell the tank separately. I tried contacting Marineland about the filter and they were less than helpful...downright rude...Petsmart was great at swapping it out for an Aquaclear that works great btw! ...but I am worried the crack will get worse with time. I am disappointed that Marineland wouldn't step up to the plate and at least give me a break on the cost of a new tank as it was the defective filter included in the kit that caused the whole situation...plus, the cost I incurred having my carpet cleaned...geesh.

I bought this tank for the kids the view is awesome I love the height only thing I don't like is the stand I don't trust all the weight on it I would recommend you have someone build you one with a canopy however the overall size fits and looks excellent anywhere in your home.

Tank started leaking after 6 months
I purchased this aquarium for my African clawed frog. It was very pretty to look at it and I loved it at first. Six months later it started leaking somewhere from the bottom. I had to go back to my old glass aquarium. I chose this one over the less expensive ones planning to keep it for a long time. I did not keep my receipt because I didn't anticipate having to return it and now I'm stuck with a worthless aquarium that I can't use. I'm very disappointed and will not buy this brand again.

Glass canopy maybe?
The tank is amazing, looks excellent and the bow makes everything seem so much better. Just one problem, cleaning water residue of the plastic canopy is very difficult. Would really appreciate a glass version as it would greatly help in the cleaning process. Please, get a glass version available and i'll be the first to buy it!
