"Great beginners tank."

Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. The description lists dimmensions but it still feels small. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon. Ok let's start off with the tank itself.

"It's also really flimsy."

That piece is very poorly designed. This is a VERY SMALL tank, and can only house 1 betta fish OR 2-3 guppies. Once finished with both tanks will post pics of grass wall. Stop now and BUY BUY BUY you will love it! Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. I wish I new about that before I got it. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also.

"I got this for my desk."

I absolutely love this eight gallon tank. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. 1 gallon that a Betta really needs a 3-5 gallon home so I purchased this one as well. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. So don't be mislead by the image on the box with five guppies.

3. Boogaa 9.84 Inch Aquarium Tweezers,Stainless Steel Feeding Tongs - Curved Tips

Boogaa First Impressions

"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.

"Cute little tank."

Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. My beta seems to be adjusting well. I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. 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.

"Very happy."

All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank. It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. It is perfect for small places like a kitchen counter, night stand, or even a desk.

"A soft humming sound."

I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. The background adds a lot of depth that feels missing in a standard aquarium. That piece is very poorly designed. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. They literally thought of everything. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work.

"Could be used."

Absolutely perfect for a planted beta set up. 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. I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. I say it's a good buy and a very nice tank.

"But he loves it!"

So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. I keep both on a low to low medium setting. It has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! If hygger comes out with more designs I would def. It's just super bulky and hard to work around. 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. So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. So I would say my tank is now fairly established.

"Personal preference."

They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. I wish I new about that before I got it. I've had it for a few days now and had zero problems hooking everything up. This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there.

"- A Color Fusion light."

I would recommend those back flow connectors for the air pump. And now, the pros and cons in my opinion. I put shrimp and guppies in it and they love it. It is definitely something that you can noticeably hear, but it is not an annoyance. Came pretty quickly and was not damaged. Not crazy about the lid or the stand. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting.

  • MULTIPLE LIGHT COLOR SELECTIONS: Energy-efficient LED lighting with 7 color selections you can choose depending on your mood or time of day or night.

Unlike glass tanks glued together with silicone, this aquarium puts to rest any worries or concerns about possible leaks.

I will get unboxing video posted tomorrow as well as any updates. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. We have had it for over a month now.
