"It's the perfect size."

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Beautiful little tank so much I bought another one. This is going to be a sweet little setup! Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. Then there's the very nice LED with sliding brackets and easy to use wired in remote. My plants have been doing fine and the filter and lights have worked really well. Once finished with both tanks will post pics of grass wall. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements.

LILYS PET Final Thoughts

"- 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.

This tank will be much easier to live with than the smaller 1-3 gallon options. But overall the money was so worth this little pack. This tank will be much easier to live with than the smaller 1-3 gallon options. I will get unboxing video posted tomorrow as well as any updates. Even though it's open about half way up the heater.

Tetra NV33231 Final Thoughts

"Mine came scratch free."

I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. After reading only four reviews I was hesitant. I didn't know that the background only goes halfway down the back of the tank. It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions. It is really just a trickle at the lowest setting. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. Hope this list helps those who are new to keeping fish-- they are a great first pet!

And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. Keep in mind that the tank, light and heater will require a total of three outlets. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest.

"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.

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.

"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.

"A soft humming sound."

I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. It comes with the filter and lights. The lights have a timer and three different levels of brightness and color. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter. Absolutely perfect for a planted beta set up.

"It's also really flimsy."

Incredibly happy with this purchase. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. 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. The cherry shrimp had fries twice and now my Celestial Pearl Danios are laying eggs. All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. The aquarium kit is with the exception of the filter is excellent!

"- 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.

"- More decorations."

I think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges. This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff.
