"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.
  • Without aquarium cover, easy to install an automatic fish feeder on the tank wall.

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.

"Too many to choose from."

It is definitely something that you can noticeably hear, but it is not an annoyance. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it! It's just super bulky and hard to work around. It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise.

"5-3 fish, not 5."

I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet. We have had it for over a month now. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. I wish I new about that before I got it.

"Very good quality!"

Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. If the disco look is not your taste, a different tank would better suit you. This is the best 5 gallon tank you will ever purchase for the price.

"The tank itself is fine."

Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. The aquarium kit is with the exception of the filter is excellent! I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank.

"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.

Bigger is always better for new people. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol.

"Not protecting much."

All you need to add for a happy Betta fish is an extra light and a tank heater. So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. The price is definitely a big plus. I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me.

Instructions were easy to use and the filter system is relatively quiet. This would make a great gift for anyone wanting to get into the hobby. Not impossible to reach but definitely an odd angle you have to go in from lol. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. It literally made me provide others with a true review. The lights alone are beautiful to brighten up a space.

It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank. The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter.

"The stand."

I keep both on a low to low medium setting. Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge.

I have this unit deployed for a couple of months now. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. Bigger is always better for new people.
