My Poor Mr. Betta
This tank drove both me and Mr. Betta crazy!
The bubbles thru gravel approach to filtration is useless and because the tank is so small I was cleaning every other day.
If that weren't enough, Mr. Betta pretty much saw his own reflection any time there was light. And if you don't understand why this is a problem: male bettas freak out a bit when they think they see other male bettas-- and they don't know it's a reflection!
And even though he could see himself, I could never see him because of the weird angles created by the six sides of the tank.
Switched to a 3 gallon tank with a carbon activated filter and both Mr. Betta and I are very happy now.

An ok tank
First of all the "filtration system" is a joke. It's just a cheaply put together tube and under gravel thing that air comes out of, that sits right in the middle of the tank . It doesn't actually filter anything, and the air pump is loud and complete overkill for a tank this size. I use this tank for my betta, so I took it out so the powerful bubble flow wouldn't bother him. The lighting is a regular lightbulb and gives a yellow glare to the water. In the features part of the description it says something about an LED light with remote, but it's clearly just a lightbulb so I'm not sure what that means. Okay on to the tank. It's actually 1.7 gallons, though the product title makes it seem like 2 and in the description it says 1.6 which isn't right because it says 1.7 on the box. The tank is pretty good quality and seems pretty nice, and the shape of the tank is cool. Once you take out the cheap "filter traction system" there is actually a decent amount of room for my betta to swim around. The hood fits on nicely and looks good. The feeding hole is plenty big enough in my opinion ( other ppl said it was way to small) It also comes with an aqua safe trial pack and a food sample which is a cool. This is overall an ok tank and I would give it a 3.5/5

Excellent Betta Tank
I love this tank and so does my Betta. I had him in the smaller size (1 gall same brand), but had to change him once a week to keep him healthy. With this one I completely clean tank every 2 weeks, and it is easy. He is very happy, eating a lot, showing off and growing! I am in California so do not use heater. Do not scoop out left over food....I just watch him eat and try to feed only until he slows down and do not have much excess. Between the 7 watt bulb and the table light next to the tank he seems to be comfortable.
