    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Difficult to set up but so far I like it Bought this & it took me way longer than I expected to set up. To answer a question I know people have wondered(the directions aren't helpful in this regard), the pump goes in the section on the right side of the filter section with the pump pointing up. Took me forever to figure it out. I have one baby beta in this tank. I put a basil plant in the top that I already had & rinsed the dirt off the roots. My basil plant was wilting pretty badly and after less than 12 hours of being with the fish, it looks like a whole new plant. It's a good size tank. You do need 2 available plugs, one for the lights and one for the filter/pump. Some people have said the water doesn't circulate well enough but i actually haven't had that issue at all, however beta don't need heavy water circulation since they have weak fins. I'll update if that changes since it hasn't been long since I got the tank. So far, I am a fan, and so is my beta. I wouldn't recommend more than 1 or 2 fish of any kind in this tank, since it is small. The bioload would be way too much for this small of a tank.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One happy betta I’ve been involved in aquatics as a hobby and profession for about four years. With a basic understanding of aquatic plant requirements and he nitrogen cycle, success is easy! I planted this tank with peppermint on top and assorted aquatic plants inside. I wanted a heavily planted aquarium to consume as much nitrate as possible (the end result of the nitrogen cycle). Peppermint grows quickly and LOVES water. Bought two potted plants and rinsed the roots thoroughly before planting. They’ve never even wilted and are growing wildly! Two concerns: planting material, filter replacements. Planting material was not dense enough for my liking so I replaced it with a clay aquatic plant substrate. A personal preference, the clay it comes with is liked by most people. The filters are unusually shaped and have no commercial replacements. I substitute with activated carbon-coated filter material available at... a main competitor. :) I recommend water conditioner and live bacteria!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but cheap. I recently purchased this tank for my mother as a birthday gift. She has owned it for less than a week and the LED lights are already giving out. Any time a product has failed me in the past I usually just contact the manufacturer and typically they try to make it right. In this case I had to scour the internet trying to find a support number... which I eventually found on a random forum. I called the number and spoke with a representative who told me I would have to return it to the store. The nearest petsmart is about 50 miles away. What this means is that I have to drive to her house, pick up the tank, drive out to petsmart, and then back to her house. So I'm expected to travel 150 miles to fix an item that should have worked to begin with. I am highly disappointed with this tank and will probably never purchase a topfin product ever again. In case you were curious the support phone number is 1-800-804-2059. All in all skip out on this tank there are far better options out there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful tank, some design flaws Pros: The look of this tank is gorgeous. I have a peace lily on top, which is doing very well, and the hexagon shape and open top are definitely visually appealing. I also like that the plant light can be easily disconnected. The pump runs water over the planting media, providing a peaceful waterfall sound (some individuals might be annoyed by that). Overall, my betta is pretty happy here. Cons: There isn't a lot of surface water, as the planter is submerged in half of the tank. This means there is limited space for a betta to build a bubble nest, but really wouldn't be a problem for other types of fish. The planter is extremely difficult to lift or remove without taking out the entire casing for the water pump and filter. This is because the water hose hovers over the planter and is attached to the pump, which is suctioned to the filter casing. There is little room for a heater. Not wanting a lot of visible cords, I managed to squeeze my heater cord between the filter case and the planter, and it causes the planter to sit slightly askew. The instructions are vague at best, and there are no detailed instructions on how to assemble the tank. There are pictures, but some parts require adjustments tho match the pictures.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not buy! This fish tank is the worst tank I have ever purchased, the water doesn’t even circulate to give the tank a chance to get clean by the filter. And I have a extremely bad algae issue with this tank. I end up having to clean this tank every week.. I will have to buy a new tank so my fish can stay happy

    What are some good plants to place in the planter section?

    Asked by: DWINE75
    I have a small vinca and snapdragon. Probably too big but testing the effectiveness.

    The instructions weren’t In the box and I got it kinda set up but I can’t figure out where the pump goes and where’s the filter? Im so confused. 

    Asked by: Autumnawesome23
    You stick it to the bottom of the shallow part of the gray filter box that hangs on the back of the tank. You will need to use the longer tube to attach the sprayer tube to the pump. The sprayer tube is placed in the notch in the top of planter section.

    Is the tank plastic or glass? Would this aquarium also work with mystery snails

    Asked by: Sillyfish
    Tank is plastic, and as for snails, it might, although there is no top on half of the tank, so there's nothing to prevent those little buggers from climbing out to invade other nearby tanks (and trust me, they will).

    How do you place the spray bar

    Asked by: Moonlover

    Trying to see if my office will allow me to have this at my desk. They need to know how many watts does this pull, or require. I guess how much electricity will it use?
