Rated 5 out of 5 by FinnedEnthusiast Love this tank!
We have purchased two of these tanks, one for a betta and one for a pico reef, and are really happy with them! Instead of the provided undergravel filter, we are using the Whisper 3i Internal Filter instead.
Neither of the lights worked when we purchased the tank, but it was just that the light bulb was loose in the socket. Getting the cover off was difficult, but after tightening the bulb, both are working.
Do be cautious in hot weather though! The closed lid with that type of bulb generates a fair amount of heat and can make the temperatures raise to dangerous levels.

Bought for my daughter's Beta. Wanted the filtration and the light. Appears to be an all-in-one, but read in the directions that it needs some kind of extra air tube - no clear description of what that is, or how it connects to the rest of the filtering system. (Went out and bought an airline tube, as well as other parts, couldn't figure it out, gave up and used the tank with the parts it came with). Spent so much time messing with the air tube I didn't think to test the light... until the tank was filled and the fish in residence. Then I plug it in and... the light doesn't turn on. Fabulous. I'd return it if it weren't such a total pain to do so. Don't waste your time/money on this tank.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thailey Great little betta tank
It's a lovely little tank I got for my betta. I love the glow-feature! I found the undergravel filter created too much of a current for my fish and stressed him out too much, so I didn't hook that part up. Also, I don't like how PetSmart does not offer replacement bulbs if/when the one it comes with burns out.

This is a nice small aquarium that fits well on nightstands and dressers. Throw in some gravel and a few plants and you're ready to go. The aquariums is of a quality you would expect from the price point and materials. Setup is quick and easy as all parts go together as they should without any fuss. The glow feature works well, though as you might expect it is much more pronounced near the bulb area. The only real drawback to the product is that the entire hood assembly is not affixed to the product (it slides over the top of it). The hood assembly does not slide around and come off, but be careful if you happen to try to move it and your hands are anywhere near the top edges.
