"It looks really bad."

I keep both on a low to low medium setting. And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite. Definitely recommend this tank hands down! This is going to be a sweet little setup! It has a hood with integrated LED lighting. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank. The heater was a no-name 200W UL certified.

capetsma Final Thoughts

"I like the all in one."

And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. Couldn't put the heater there because it does not heat the whole tank. It's raised at the edges and just looks bad.

Fluval 10505 First Impressions

"Recommend!"

It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. It literally made me provide others with a true review. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges.

Fluval 10505 Final Thoughts

"Scratch that."

- Though the base is plastic, it's sturdy. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. It also sits on the bottom glass pane, not the edges of the viewing panes. 1 gallon that a Betta really needs a 3-5 gallon home so I purchased this one as well. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. It literally made me provide others with a true review. It is perfect for small places like a kitchen counter, night stand, or even a desk.

"Perfect product."

This tank will be much easier to live with than the smaller 1-3 gallon options. The cherry shrimp had fries twice and now my Celestial Pearl Danios are laying eggs. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. It is definitely something that you can noticeably hear, but it is not an annoyance. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar.

Tetra 29003 Final Thoughts

"Mine came scratch free."

It comes with the filter and lights. The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants. So don't be mislead by the image on the box with five guppies. It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank. Instructions were easy to use and the filter system is relatively quiet. I wish I new about that before I got it.

Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions. The cherry shrimp had fries twice and now my Celestial Pearl Danios are laying eggs.

The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. If the disco look is not your taste, a different tank would better suit you.

Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. The description lists dimmensions but it still feels small. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. Ok let's start off with the tank itself.

"It's also really flimsy."

That piece is very poorly designed. This is a VERY SMALL tank, and can only house 1 betta fish OR 2-3 guppies. Once finished with both tanks will post pics of grass wall. Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it! Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. I wish I new about that before I got it. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also.

"It was all fluval brand."

I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. Bigger is always better for new people. So I ended up taking the filter out and replacing it with a sponge filter. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that. I purchased the hygger heater and it has worked out perfectly too. Nothing came broke and everything is working.

"Love this!"

The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that. He loves exploring his new environment with all the fresh vegetation. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. The motor has four little suction cup feet for stability. It's really nice to have for betta fish that need to be in warm water. My plants have been doing fine and the filter and lights have worked really well.
