    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features Great product just got it today for my Betta. Just have to do research on the plants you can use. I have Golden Pothos and Peace Lily. This does come with a glass tank, aquaponic media, and a pump. all in all great tank.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheaply made I bought this thinking it would be a great intro in aquaponics. Sadly I was mistaken. The first problem that i had is that the amount of planting media included with the tank is barley enough for 2 of the planting compartment let alone 3. Lack of planting media causes the plant to float and the roots be exposed to air therefore slowly killing the plant. Problem 2: the water line needed to keep the plants alive can only be obtained if the tank I half empty. Therefore u basically only have a 1 gallon tank if you want to keep your plants alive. Problem 3: cleaning this thing is a nightmare, there are sevreal places in the tank that you can't reach with an algae scrubber or gravel vacuum causing the tank to turn very swamp like in a very short period of time. Problem 4: bad structural design. This thing is held together with apoxy and 4 small pieces of plastic that aren't connected. I do not recommend this product to anyone because it is a waste of money especially for what they are charging because I purchased this for $5.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tank so much!!!! I originally purchased two of these and actually went back for 4 more for future set-ups! My bettas LOVE their home and quite honestly, do better in a smaller tank than a larger. (less territory to defend!) Perfect size, good aesthetic features, and simple to set up. I highly recommend this little tank.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice little tank, bad little pump I purchased this tank a few weeks ago and gave it three stars because the pump is already starting to die out. Assuming the pump is just faulty in mine, I think with proper maintenance it's a good tank for a betta. Size wise, because I was curious from the photo, it comfortably fits an anubias plant, three moss balls, heater, small rock cave, small floating hide and enough space for a betta to swim.

    Hello! The title says that this product 2.5 gallon, but the description says that it's 1 gallon. What's the truth?
