HuYaYa Final Thoughts

"5 tank for my Betta fish."

I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. We have had it for over a month now. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. - Though the base is plastic, it's sturdy.

"Recommend!"

All of this is explained in the instructions. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. I have this unit deployed for a couple of months now. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! The background is comes with is just super convenient! James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest.

"The hinges are a joke."

Ok let's start off with the tank itself. You are getting a premium quality tank for a reasonable price. It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. It also comes with a built in 3D back round. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. Instructions were easy to use and the filter system is relatively quiet. Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks.

The background is comes with is just super convenient! This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. Enough colors and gradients to please any demanding scaled pet.

If you are into dwarf shrimp that is.

"- A Color Fusion light."

I would recommend those back flow connectors for the air pump. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. I put shrimp and guppies in it and they love it. It is definitely something that you can noticeably hear, but it is not an annoyance. Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. Not crazy about the lid or the stand. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting.

  • MULTIPLE LIGHT COLOR SELECTIONS: Energy-efficient LED lighting with 7 color selections you can choose depending on your mood or time of day or night.

Unlike glass tanks glued together with silicone, this aquarium puts to rest any worries or concerns about possible leaks.

"Great beginners tank."

I will get unboxing video posted tomorrow as well as any updates. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. We have had it for over a month now. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank.

"But he loves it!"

The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat. Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. I've had it for a few days now and had zero problems hooking everything up.

"- A Color Fusion light."

The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. Ok let's start off with the tank itself. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. I absolutely love this eight gallon tank. Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. There's also enough room back there to hide a heater. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp.

"This tank is super small."

James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. It literally made me provide others with a true review. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit!

"- A pump and filter."

Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. So don't be mislead by the image on the box with five guppies. So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. It is perfect for small places like a kitchen counter, night stand, or even a desk. My plants have been doing fine and the filter and lights have worked really well.
