"Final note of warning."

It literally made me provide others with a true review. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. - it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. The lights have a timer and three different levels of brightness and color. The price is definitely a big plus. The description lists dimmensions but it still feels small.

"Filter is quiet."

The description lists dimmensions but it still feels small. Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank. I do use the filter housing to house a heater and co2 diffuser. The background is comes with is just super convenient! Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. It literally made me provide others with a true review.

"Personal preference."

There's also enough room back there to hide a heater. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. That piece is very poorly designed. No doubt, I'll just be throwing that out. I would recommend those back flow connectors for the air pump. Nothing came broke and everything is working. This would make a great gift for anyone wanting to get into the hobby.

"It gets dirty FAST."

There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. Nothing came broke and everything is working. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. 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. - it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations.

"Very happy."

Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet! It literally made me provide others with a true review. This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great!

"It was easy to set up."

You are getting a premium quality tank for a reasonable price. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. It also comes with a built in 3D back round.

And the lights that it comes with are my absolute favorite. The lights have a timer and three different levels of brightness and color. Incredibly happy with this purchase. 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. Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it!

"I love my tank!"

It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. My beta seems to be adjusting well. Not crazy about the lid or the stand.

It just sits under the tank with no way of holding the tank in place on top of it. The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet. Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank. My beta seems to be adjusting well. Even though it's open about half way up the heater.

"2 bag minimum."

Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. Just loading gravel scratched the front of mine. BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol. The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that. I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there. It's just super bulky and hard to work around. 1 gallon that a Betta really needs a 3-5 gallon home so I purchased this one as well.

"It is non-adjustable."

I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. Once finished with both tanks will post pics of grass wall. The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol. All of this is explained in the instructions.

"- Fish food."

It comes with the filter and lights. Tank is great, quiet enough, no motor sound, lights quite nice. The background is comes with is just super convenient! No more then five or six tiny ones is my guess. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version.

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.

"Happy fish keeping!"

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. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is.

"- A heater."

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. All you need to add for a happy Betta fish is an extra light and a tank heater. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me.

"Great beginners tank."

- Though the base is plastic, it's sturdy. This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. This is the best 5 gallon tank you will ever purchase for the price. He was being suctioned to the filter. They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. - Though the base is plastic, it's sturdy.
