"Very well made."

I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. My beta seems to be adjusting well. It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet! The background is comes with is just super convenient! Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol. This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta.

  • 【Hygger Aquarium Kit Includes】one 7W 110GPH internal power filter pump, one colored led aquarium light, one 8 gallon glass tank with a decorative 3D rockery mountain background.

  • 【Durable Power Filter】The aquarium power filter is 7W 110GPH, for 2-8 gallon tank use. It's a super quiet and durable filter, and can be use for low water, the upper part is the 2 stage filtration system, the bottom part is water pumping systerm to pump the water upward. Please NOTE this filter may be too strong for small fish that is not long than 2 inch, may suck small fish, if you keep small in the tank, please don't run the filter or don't run it all the time
  • 【New View Curved Tank】Tank size: 19" L x 11.8" W x 9.6" H. This glass fish tank has a unique convex arc curve shape, can widen your view on the aquarium, and can hold more capacity of water. The total tank volume is 8 gallon, it can hold 6 gallon of water, because the tank has a undetachable 3D background decor. When it holds full water, the whole tank weighs about 68 pounds.
  • 【Multi-protection Packing】We used 3 layers of packing to pack the aquarium kit and with light lifting label, the innermost layers is a super sturdy poly foam with excellent cushion. We have done the shipping test by sending 3 of the packs to 3 different distance places and find the glass tanks are still in good condition when received. So don't worry the tank will be broken during the shipping, if you find tank broken when open the package, please take a photo and send it to the seller.

hygger Final Thoughts

"I like it."

I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. My beta seems to be adjusting well. I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants. There's also enough room back there to hide a heater. Absolutely perfect for a planted beta set up. It just sits under the tank with no way of holding the tank in place on top of it.

"Filter is quiet."

I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. It also comes with a built in 3D back round. I've had it for a few days now and had zero problems hooking everything up. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. My beta seems to be adjusting well. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge.

"I shut mine off."

That piece is very poorly designed. You are getting a premium quality tank for a reasonable price. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. I put shrimp and guppies in it and they love it. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. It also comes with a built in 3D back round.

"Fish seem happy."

The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. If the disco look is not your taste, a different tank would better suit you. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol.

"Great for a small space."

I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I keep both on a low to low medium setting. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting. Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet!

"I purchased a 5."

I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there. The background is comes with is just super convenient! Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. All you need to add for a happy Betta fish is an extra light and a tank heater. The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. He was being suctioned to the filter.

"Super easy to assemble."

I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants. So far I like it, and my betta seems to like it as well. All of this is explained in the instructions.

"Not protecting much."

The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. This is a VERY SMALL tank, and can only house 1 betta fish OR 2-3 guppies. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom.

"It's great!"

It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. He was being suctioned to the filter. All you need to add for a happy Betta fish is an extra light and a tank heater. The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. Advanced aquarium owners might find this space annoying.

"5 tank for my Betta fish."

Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. Not crazy about the lid or the stand. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. Bigger is always better for new people. I have this unit deployed for a couple of months now. 1 gallon that a Betta really needs a 3-5 gallon home so I purchased this one as well.

Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it! Even though it's open about half way up the heater. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. It also sits on the bottom glass pane, not the edges of the viewing panes. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. This would make a great gift for anyone wanting to get into the hobby.

"My lid is laying on."

Definitely recommend this tank hands down! Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar.

I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank. Bigger is always better for new people. They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version.

"Perrrrfect!"

Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. The heater was a no-name 200W UL certified. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all.
