"It's hollow, too."

I cant wait to set this up and get some shrimp and cardinal tetras in there. It also comes with a built in 3D back round. All contents included were as promised and they work fantastically. He does swim under the shelf of the background but never hides there. It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light.

"- More decorations."

It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions. It's just super bulky and hard to work around. So far I like it, and my betta seems to like it as well. The filter is actually a pretty nice design. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. My beta seems to be adjusting well. We have had it for over a month now.

It's perfect for guppies, shrimp, bettas, neon tetras or any other small fish. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. I also bought a heater with a built in thermostat.

"Perfect product."

The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise. It has been working just fine and maintaining temp. The price is definitely a big plus.

"The LEDs are beautiful."

I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me. I'm a first-time fish parent, and this is my first filtered aquarium. The tubes get so dirty so fast and it messes up the flow for the filter. I love the tank and everything else about it but the background! I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. I put mine in the corner of my breakfast bar. No more then five or six tiny ones is my guess.

"I LOVE this tank!"

Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. Not crazy about the lid or the stand. Incredibly happy with this purchase. It has a hood with integrated LED lighting. This is the best 5 gallon tank you will ever purchase for the price. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. They're not nearly as sensitive as these little 2.

"This tank comes with."

It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! I always had bubbles on the front of my tank no matter how I faced the tubes. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. - it really only holds 4 gallons after you add gravel and decorations. Even though it's open about half way up the heater.

"Perfect product."

Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. There arent very many other aquariums at this price point with these measurements. It is very easy to set up and also comes with easy to understand instructions. The cherry shrimp had fries twice and now my Celestial Pearl Danios are laying eggs.

"5-3 fish, not 5."

The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet. Shipped fast, everything was there in perfect condition. Tank is great, quiet enough, no motor sound, lights quite nice. Fortunately, the way the arm is designed you can zip tie something like the 7. Enough colors and gradients to please any demanding scaled pet. And you can not take the background out of the tank,it is glued in! I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me.

"I gotta get them all!"

Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! I love the tank and everything else about it but the background! It's probably fine, but I don't like it at all. James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. This is the best 5 gallon tank you will ever purchase for the price. If the disco look is not your taste, a different tank would better suit you. This would make a great gift for anyone wanting to get into the hobby.

"2 bag minimum."

It's raised at the edges and just looks bad. This is a good deal for a complete setup, less the rocks for the bottom. Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. Disregard the videos that show the filter operating with a loud chattering noise. Plan to buy another filter as this filter will be too noisy for you to tolerate! And it builds up a lot of algae so it needs to be cleaned more. The rule of thumb is one small fish per gallon.

"- The fish tank."

BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. So don't be mislead by the image on the box with five guppies. So I now have a little cubby that my fish uses to hide. They're not nearly as sensitive as these little 2. So far I like it, and my betta seems to like it as well. I just set this up today and I absolutely love it so far.

"Now the big bad thing."

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.

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 has everything except for the pebbles we purchased separated we loved it! It's just super bulky and hard to work around. And it's a little awkward to put things in like a heater and stuff. If you are into dwarf shrimp that is. Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. No doubt, I'll just be throwing that out. The Mingdak strip is also waterproof and submersible so there's that.

"This is crucial!"

Problem is, the glass sits flush with that top edge. Ok let's start off with the tank itself. I purchased the hygger heater and it has worked out perfectly too. Couldn't put the heater there because it does not heat the whole tank. Fluval, BioOrd, and several other micro tanks. It only goes halfway down which may bother some people but to me it's great! I don't remove my lid that much so, not a big deal to me.
