    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! I'm very happy with this tank. I have a beta male in here and it's the perfect size for him. He swims around and seems very happy. I know that my picture doesn't do this justice - but the tank looks great sandwiched in between my other plants. I stuck in about 3lbs of gravel and a couple of Amazon Sword plants. He likes to swim in the leaves of the sword plants and the lights do a great job of showing the colors. I used a Philodendron on top and have to say that the planting media that this comes with is the perfect amount for the basket on top. I like that the basket comes out with the lid to make water changes easy. Also there is a small hole in the top of the lid to make it easy to drop in food for your fish. The pump is completely quiet - you can't hear it at all, but you can see the water moving on the top so you know it's working. Highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute little tank!!! This is a super cute tank....My best friend and I wanted to add a touch of whimsy to our office...our only complaint is the lighting, it could be better but, our fish is happy and a joy to watch...the media was the perfect amount. I read several negative reviews but, I am glad we took a chance...I’ll keep my receipt just in case lol!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design and great product! I have had this tank almost 1 year and have had absolutely no problems with it. I have a male betta and a mystery snail living happily inside. Air pump is super quiet, and the design is gorgeous. I have an Angel plant on the top that is thriving as well as my aquatic inhabitants. The planting media is fantastic. I did purchase a separate bag of the media and replace it every couple months, which isn't something that has to be done I just do.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate This tank is actually a fun design. Do not be swayed by a lot of the 1 star reviews. Many of them sound like they set it up wrong and that is somehow the products fault. Very quiet and can be fit into most places. My concerns. The tank is rather small on the inside. Most of the room is taken up by the center column. The fish don't seem to mind and my snail and shrimp love cleaning it but it makes decorating and cleaning kind of a pain in the butt. considering upgrading to a new tank for this reason. the general water flow is not great either. This is ideal for bettas from what i have heard but there isn't much agitation to help with gas exchange. Still working on a way to fix this without buying an aerator. Other than that functions fine. For those who are experiencing a lot of noise, try and ensure that base and center column are joined tightly and completely. Make sure the entire bottom plate is on the bottom of the tank too. could help reduce the vibration.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice tank...but.. I love the look and so does my beta. But there is no circulation at all! The water is all stagnant on the top. Is there anything I am doing wrong?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this aquarium! I bought this for my office at work and I love it! I read some of the negative reviews here, but I didn't have any issues whatsoever. My betta seems really happy in his new home!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks Bought this tank as it's an amazing concept and beautiful when set up. However, the first one I bought leaked. This was after it was completely set up and had to break down and return. The second one didn't leak initially. Set it up on my desk at work and came in the next day. It had leaked all night and actually ruined my desk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Betta Tank The tank is perfect for a betta. It has plenty of space and the filter is so quiet and gentle that it's hard to tell if it's even on. I am very pleased with this tank and highly recommend it for small fish or a betta.

    Is there a way to get new led lights for it? Mine just died.

    Asked by: AbsorbedTulip9
    I called customer service and they told me to go to a store. After a bit of a hassel in explaining everything they just switched out the lights with a pair on the shelf. popped em back into the hood and it was good to go.

    Has anyone added neons. I was told Bettas can get along with a small school of Bettas about 5 or 6 in this tank.

    Asked by: Metermaid 36
    Neons need a lot more space than this tank will provide,. They need to be in a school of 6+, they're extremely active and like lots of space, ideally a 10+ gallon tank. More space will also help reduce your betta's aggression toward other fish. The only decent tankmates for this tank would be a small number of invertebrates, like snails or ghost shrimp. Nerite snails are a good choice, they have attractive shells and won't multiply in freshwater.

    If tank isn't suppose to be near sunlight, how does the plant survive?

    Asked by: KatHCW
    It's best to go with a low light indoor plant such as a Pothos, which will be very happy with indirect sunlight or even ambient indoor lighting.

    Does this tank come with a filter, or is the plant the sole filtration system? Is there a filter you can buy or add if it doesn't come with one, and where would that go?

    Asked by: Lola33
    I added a sponge filter

    How often do water changes need to be? Are they weekly or more often because of the size and filtration?

    Does it come with a filter or do I need to purchase and additional one ?

    Asked by: Sealy
    The plant and media acts as the filter. Nothing additional is needed...make sure your tank isn’t exposed to sunlight to avoid algae blooms.
