"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.

Aquarium Masters AM13521 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Great tank."

I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this.

"Recommended."

I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade.

"My betta really likes it."

The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. Also very important for filtration.

Aquarium Masters AM32020 Final Thoughts

"Looks great!"

It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I have been an active fish keeper for years. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more.

An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. Highly recommend this for beginners. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. The instructions are maybe two pages. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way.

"Easy to assemble."

If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Most important though is the lighting issue. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Most important though is the lighting issue. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out.
