"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.

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.

3. MarineLand Contour Glass Aquarium Kit with Rail Light

"It was all fluval brand."

Tank is great, quiet enough, no motor sound, lights quite nice. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. I keep both on a low to low medium setting. The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. It also comes with a built in 3D back round. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion.

  • MarineLand Contour Glass Aquarium Kit with Rail Light
  • SLEEK DESIGN: Rounded corners and clear glass canopy allow viewing from multiple angles.
  • DAYLIGHT/MOONLIGHT SETTINGS: Bright white LEDs create a shimmering sunlight effect; blue LEDs produce a moonlit glow.

"Nice tank for the price."

It is perfect for small places like a kitchen counter, night stand, or even a desk. There's also enough room back there to hide a heater. It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! The blue light works great as a night light also. The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta.

MarineLand ML90608 First Impressions

"Now that's another part."

All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! Advanced aquarium owners might find this space annoying. Enough colors and gradients to please any demanding scaled pet. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter.

MarineLand ML90608 Final Thoughts

"The hinges are a joke."

It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. I've had it for a few days now and had zero problems hooking everything up. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. But overall the money was so worth this little pack. I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting. Incredibly happy with this purchase. This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank.

"It's hollow, too."

Definitely recommend this tank hands down! So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. Not impossible to reach but definitely an odd angle you have to go in from lol. - Though the base is plastic, it's sturdy. The heater was a no-name 200W UL certified. This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there.

6. Beta Cube Starter Fish Aquarium with Accessories

AQUA CULTURE First Impressions

"I highly recommend it."

I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank. I wish I new about that before I got it. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also.

"Scratch that."

It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it! I've had it for a few days now and had zero problems hooking everything up. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. He was being suctioned to the filter. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. I love the tank and everything else about it but the background!

"I shut mine off."

Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet! All you need to add for a happy Betta fish is an extra light and a tank heater. He loves exploring his new environment with all the fresh vegetation. I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. This unit was an upgrade for my daughters Beta tank.

"So far so good."

Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet! My beta seems to be adjusting well. It just sits under the tank with no way of holding the tank in place on top of it. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! It also comes with a built in 3D back round. It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. The background is made very nicely and doesn't take up a whole lot of the tank.

"This tank is wonderful!"

Even though it's open about half way up the heater. It's really nice to have for betta fish that need to be in warm water. Bigger is always better for new people. Once finished with both tanks will post pics of grass wall. You are getting a premium quality tank for a reasonable price. I purchased the hygger heater and it has worked out perfectly too. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version.

"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.

"So it worked out."

This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. We have had it for over a month now. 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. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. Incredibly happy with this purchase. I do use the filter housing to house a heater and co2 diffuser.

I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far. So far I like it, and my betta seems to like it as well. All of this is explained in the instructions. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements.
