Top Fin 5.5 Gal Aquarium Starter Kit
Cheap hood cover not as advertised.
They advertised this fish tank comes with Aquarium, 16" Incandescent Hood and Bulb, but I didn't receive that. I got some plastic cheap cover and its very disappointing. So please double check the product and don't end up like me.

Not as pictured
It doesn't have the same hood as pictured. It is a cheaply made, flat hood, with a (hard to put in)snap-in white LED light. The glue in the seams is messy and makes the edges look milky.
I gave it 3 stars because of the price, it's a nice heavy glass, it comes with goodies, and doesn't leak. I had a filter, so I can't comment on this one.
I wish they had the pay and pick up when I got this. Maybe I could have gotten what I really wanted. My tank was cracked and I really needed it. Eventually I will try to find the hood shown and purchase it. I guess I just lost my savings though.

Ok...filter is WAY too strong
Hi, I got this tank for my male betta fish and his otocinclus pal. I wanted to upgrade him from his 1.5 gallon, which was way too small. I overall tank is great, It came with a sticker thermometer, a net, LED lights, the hood, water tester, and 10 gallon power filter and cartridge. The filter is REALLY strong. It tossed around my betta really bad, and It makes high waves on the surface. I just used my old filter from the old tank and thats working great. the only downside is the bad filter.

Excellent small tank
I've had this tank for a couple of months now and have had no problems at all with it. It's pretty much silent. I have natural live plants in it, 3 guppies, 3 platies, 2 female bettas, 2 algae eaters and will be getting a couple of mystery snails. The filter flow is excellent, not at all too strong. I DO keep the tank topped up which I think is a lot of the problem some folks have when they complain that the filter is noisy or too strong. I keep mine less than a half-inch from the black rim along the top. So far everything is working well. It's a great little tank.
