"I've had it a day so far."

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. The instructions are maybe two pages.

  • DreamDealsSG 100x Tourmaline Balls for Freshwater Aquarium Tank. Mineral Supplement Substrate. Live Shrimp Food, Betta Fish Food, and Crayfish Food. Water Conditioner for Freshwater Shrimp etc.
  • Vibrant health: Just like vitamins, minerals and pH balanced water for humans, your Shrimp, Bettas, Crayfish and Snails also need those things for bright colors, healthy breeding, molting and play! So, when you add DDSG Mineral Balls to your tank you’re giving your fishy friends, the best of health!
  • How do they work? Out in the wild, cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, amano shrimp, freshwater fish and all other water-lovin’ life are constantly exposed to pH balanced, mineral water from earth’s rocks – with natural bacteria. This is how they molt, breed and maintain healthy vibrancy. Our organic tourmaline is a natural rock with over 30 minerals to keep your tank balanced just like those wild waters.
  • Size and quantity: This is the most cost effective pack you’ve found on your search. Chances are you have at least one 10 gallon fish tank (but commonly 20 gallon tank, or 50 gallon). And because you’ll add one ¼ inch ball per gallon, you’ll need enough for every tank! So this 100 pack makes perfect sense.
  • Copper-free! Of course you may have some nerite snails and other friendly things in your shrimp tank, so you’ll love knowing each tourmaline ball is copper-free! And because they’re natural and pH balanced they keep your aquarium crystal clear, free from impurities, ammonia and hold a stable pH balance. And because they’re so mineral rich, your aquatic plants will get the nutrients they need, too.
  • Calcium-enhanced and more: DDSG Mineral Supplement beads contain 30 minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, boron, manganese and more. It’s like a daily dose of Spirulina for our splashy pals! Suited for freshwater aquarium snails, betta tank, freshwater shrimp, live crayfish and goldfish. So, feed them well, keep them clean, and supplement with DDSG Minerals so they can dazzle you for years!

"This was perfect!"

But even so, the tank is beautiful! The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad.

"My betta really likes it."

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. All in all it is packaged very well. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole.

  • Many fish can and will jump out of your aquarium. Nearly all fish can do this for numerous reasons.
  • On a similar note, a cover will help foreign objects from falling into the aquarium. If there are young children or pets in your household, this could be a very important consideration. Same thing if you keep any supplies above the tank.
  • A cover reduces evaporation, which means you will not lose water as quickly. This can be pretty noticeable in warm water systems. Evaporation can also leave mineral deposits behind.

"Great tank."

I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. But even so, the tank is beautiful! This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. I have been an active fish keeper for years.

"My betta is very happy!"

I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat.

"Big mistake."

Still waiting for the silicone to cure. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more.

"I just bought my 4th."

I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. Should survive the shipping process just fine! They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank.

I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I will update if I have any issues. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU.

"I just bought my 4th."

Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame.

"I am in love with it!"

Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. I find them very easy to keep clean. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases.

"Trying to contact vendor."

I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. Most important though is the lighting issue.

  • This package combines the Coralife Size 32 LED BioCube Aquarium and the NEW AND IMPROVED BIOCUBE STAND. This NEW & IMPROVED VERSION features a solid back panel for added stability. No glue is required.

"I inspected all seams."

It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump.

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. My other gripe would be with the lid. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank.

I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Also very important for filtration.
