"Crystal clear viewing."

I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank.

AquaTop Final Thoughts

"I inspected all seams."

I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

2. AquaTop Pisces Nano Bowfront Glass Aquarium, 5 Gallons

User Ratings: 43 24

AquaTop First Impressions

"Easy read."

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

"Easy to assemble."

Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I will update if I have any issues. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! After the foam is in I put the gravel in.

AquaTop First Impressions

"Yes, it was expensive."

Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed.

"5 years in to ownership."

I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. My other gripe would be with the lid. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank.

"It's so sleek!"

I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Should survive the shipping process just fine! I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. The purple coralline algae is growing well.

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! Also very important for filtration. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

"Absolutely gorgeous."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. The size is in the description is accurate. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it.

"Who knows why."

The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. All in all it is packaged very well. I have been an active fish keeper for years. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Nothing to complain about with this tank at all.

"Hope this review helps!"

Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. The size is in the description is accurate. The instructions are maybe two pages.

"I love this tank."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. If this goes well I have a spare 75g at home I'll probably convert into a reef tank. But even so, the tank is beautiful! Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement.

8. AquaTop 6.5G High Clarity Glass Bookshelf Style Aquarium (HCA-3G)

AquaTop First Impressions

"I was worried about that."

I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

"Highly recommend."

I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.
