"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 Horizon 8 Gallon LED Glass Aquarium Kit for Starters with 7W Power Filter Pump, 18W Colored led Light, Wide View Curved Shape Fish Tank with Undetachable 3D Rockery Background Decor
  • 【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. The 3D background makes the whole aquarium looks cool like a dream word underwater, is a great rest, play spot, shelters for little fish. Also you can plant some green grass on the rockery mountain.
  • 【Mutil-modes LED Light】The aquarium led light is DC12V/18W, with extendable brackets, length can be adjusted from 0 to 19 inch. It has a external digital controller, you can use it to set the lighting time to 3, 6 or 12 hours, to adjust the light brightness from 100% to 10%, 5 levels of brightness in total, to shift the light modes: White LEDS, Blue+white+red LEDS, Red+ blue LEDS.
  • 【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.
  • Unique convex arc curve shape, widen your view on the aquarium and can hold more capacity of water.
  • No need stand, there is a cushion pad stuck on the bottom, or you can buy an extra rubber pad for it.

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.

"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.

"- A pump and filter."

After reading only four reviews I was hesitant. They're not nearly as sensitive as these little 2. Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. The heater was a no-name 200W UL certified. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank. It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions.

"It's the perfect size."

I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat. I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting. All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! This would make a great gift for anyone wanting to get into the hobby. This tank will be much easier to live with than the smaller 1-3 gallon options.

Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants.

He loves exploring his new environment with all the fresh vegetation.

"The LEDs are beautiful."

I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter. I love the tank and everything else about it but the background! I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. No more then five or six tiny ones is my guess.

"Recommend!"

This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. This is a VERY SMALL tank, and can only house 1 betta fish OR 2-3 guppies. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! Definitely recommend this tank hands down! The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. It comes with the filter and lights.

There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. - it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants.

"It's an aquarium."

The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. The price is definitely a big plus.

"For the last two months."

So far I like it, and my betta seems to like it as well. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol.

"The kit is not complete."

I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. Advanced aquarium owners might find this space annoying. It also sits on the bottom glass pane, not the edges of the viewing panes. I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there. The lights have a timer and three different levels of brightness and color. Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7.

And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. I have this unit deployed for a couple of months now. The lights alone are beautiful to brighten up a space. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! We have had it for over a month now.
