Fluval Chi Aquarium Kit
Perfect for my Betta and Snail
Shipped well, no issues. The tank is really nice looking. The filter works well for the one fish and snail. I had to add a heater.
I like the plant box and ability to decorate the top of the filter. If you use the box on top of the filter, the water falling makes no sound at all. I prefer the sound of trickling water, so I chose not to use it.
My fish seems happy. Him and the snail get along. They both have room to hide and explore. I've changed the decor multiple times, easily.
I wish I could add a timer to the tank light, but it's within the filter, so you have to manually turn it off and on, otherwise your pump would shut off at night.
Overall, I really like it. I'd consider another one for another room.

I love this tank, it's housing my one Blood Parrot Cichlid, he loves it, I love it! I just love how it comes with it's own lighting and filtration system. I recommend this to anyone in need for a stylish, and sturdy aquarium!

Dissattisfied with product
When you look at the picture on the box, the aquarium is beautiful. The major drawback to this 5 gal. tank is there is no top for the tank, making evaporation a major issue. I have to add a large amount of water every day to this tank. It is also very hard to clean the way the center piece is made into the tank. Too much labor involved IMO.

Not so great
I think the tank looks very stylish and would be well suited for a beta fish since it's small. I have 2 small Goldfish in mine and had to take out the filter because it takes up a lot of space and doesn't work well at all. Bought a separate more powerful filter. Bought a background because the clear tank look was boring. Since I took the filter out I had to buy lights because the light was attached. Basically I would have rather bought a cheaper bare tank and gotten things myself, since I did it anyway. Not worth the money!!!
