"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.

"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.

"My lid is laying on."

The pump is also as close to silent as you can get. The shrimp sit on the wall and can hide in the back also. Of course the tank is an odd shape in itself lol. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter. I've included a video of it running so you can judge for yourself. The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet. Tank is great, quiet enough, no motor sound, lights quite nice.

"I gotta get them all!"

Even though it's open about half way up the heater. I'm working on a planted tank, will decide what fish will work. I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. We have had it for over a month now. Absolutely perfect for a planted beta set up. I would recommend those back flow connectors for the air pump. I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting.

"- A Color Fusion light."

It also sits on the bottom glass pane, not the edges of the viewing panes. The adjustable pump can be turned down really low so the flow does not bother a Beta. The light is fairly bright but insufficient for growing any decent live plants. Best of luck if you purchase it this kit! The lights alone are beautiful to brighten up a space. 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.

"5 tank for my Betta fish."

I bought this to basically replace a 5 gallon tank and make a new planted version. They'll have a lot more room to play around decorations and stuff, too. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. Will not grow anything aside from Anubias and moss balls. My plants have been doing fine and the filter and lights have worked really well.

James spends his days swimming all around his tank and working on his bubble nest. It literally made me provide others with a true review. It'll be fine, just be careful how you deal with the filter.

"It looks really bad."

We have had it for over a month now. Will be buying a second of these tanks for my step daughter's Betta. It just sits under the tank with no way of holding the tank in place on top of it. BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol. I love looking at it while I'm in the kitchen. Even though it's open about half way up the heater. The curve radius also makes it hard to clean the glass on the edges.

"5 tank for my Betta fish."

This is going to be a sweet little setup! Came with the tank and background along with a pump and light. The filter has great flow and comes with an extended spray bar. BUT it still looks pretty cool for a background lol. So I would say my tank is now fairly established. I absolutely love this eight gallon tank. The filter is the well known Tetra Whisper 60 that really is whisper quiet.

"It's also really flimsy."

This helps to build a small eco system that reduces tank maintenance. It's really nice to have for betta fish that need to be in warm water. I'm not sure that it could be much quieter. The lights have a timer and three different levels of brightness and color. Again, heater and light if you are doing real plants. They literally thought of everything. I keep both on a low to low medium setting.

"Very happy."

No more then five or six tiny ones is my guess. That piece is very poorly designed. This is especially important if you opt to keep tropical fish rather than a betta. 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 think it's a great looking tank and I would definitely recommend it to others. I dont use the filter, I covered up the filter vents with some netting.
