"The tank itself is fine."

I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise. No doubt, I'll just be throwing that out. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. This is the best 5 gallon tank you will ever purchase for the price. I wish I new about that before I got it. I love looking at it while I'm in the kitchen.

DEECOOYA Final Thoughts

"Very happy."

All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. It is perfect for small places like a kitchen counter, night stand, or even a desk.

"Perrrrfect!"

And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. It just sits under the tank with no way of holding the tank in place on top of it. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. I have this unit deployed for a couple of months now. This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. Nothing came broke and everything is working. Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it!

"I gotta get them all!"

Instructions were easy to use and the filter system is relatively quiet. The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. The background is comes with is just super convenient! If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank.

"This is crucial!"

Definitely recommend this tank hands down! I love the tank and everything else about it but the background! I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. He was being suctioned to the filter. Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet! I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there.

"Scratch that."

- it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations. The aquarium kit is with the exception of the filter is excellent! Bigger is always better for new people. The blue light works great as a night light also. The aquarium kit is with the exception of the filter is excellent! The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter.

"Filter is quiet."

The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. Nothing came broke and everything is working. If hygger comes out with more designs I would def. This is going to be a sweet little setup! The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar.

"Feed fish."

The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. So I would say my tank is now fairly established. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance.

"Feed fish."

There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat. My beta seems to be adjusting well. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls.

"Nice tank for the price."

- it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations. It literally made me provide others with a true review. It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. The cherry shrimp had fries twice and now my Celestial Pearl Danios are laying eggs. I will get unboxing video posted tomorrow as well as any updates.

T F H PUBLICATION/NYLABONE First Impressions

"I purchased a 5."

Not crazy about the lid or the stand. The motor has four little suction cup feet for stability. This is a VERY SMALL tank, and can only house 1 betta fish OR 2-3 guppies. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I absolutely love this eight gallon tank. And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite.

There's also enough room back there to hide a heater. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. All of this is explained in the instructions.

"Love this tank."

He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. I put shrimp and guppies in it and they love it. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls.

"A soft humming sound."

I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. That piece is very poorly designed. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. They literally thought of everything.

"Could be used."

Absolutely perfect for a planted beta set up. It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank. I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank.

It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol.
