"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!

DREAMDEALS So Good Final Thoughts

"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.

"Looks great."

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.

"Will keep you posted!"

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.

I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. The size is in the description is accurate. Also very important for filtration. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less.

"Looks great!"

My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well.

"Really beautiful tank."

I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. Most important though is the lighting issue. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. All in all it is packaged very well. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Also very important for filtration. They are affordable and beautiful and well made.

"Who knows why."

I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

"Highly recommend."

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

"Trying to contact vendor."

Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

SoShrimp 7644662 First Impressions

"This tank is amazing!"

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. But even so, the tank is beautiful!

"Looks great."

My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing.

Penn-Plax BBT3 First Impressions

"Easy to assemble."

If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

"Stand is great."

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.

It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. Most important though is the lighting issue. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile.

I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! Also very important for filtration. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer.

"Filter finally gave out!"

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. Clean silicone lines and clear glass. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too.

"Seems a little wasteful."

Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it!
