"Hope this review helps!"

The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Highly recommend this for beginners. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. I have been an active fish keeper for years. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

Fluval 10531A1 Final Thoughts

"I love this tank."

It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. Also very important for filtration. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense.

"I inspected all seams."

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. All in all it is packaged very well. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video.

Fluval 15281A1 First Impressions

"Fantastic aquarium!"

Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

Fluval 15281A1 Final Thoughts

"Scratch that."

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.

"5 years in to ownership."

Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work.

"It's so sleek!"

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again.

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame.

"Will keep you posted!"

I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Also very important for filtration. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.

"5 gallon tank."

And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. I am especially fond of the raised base. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months.

Imagitarium Final Thoughts

"It's beautiful."

I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling.

"Seems a little wasteful."

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. It's simple enough to put together. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer.

"Really beautiful tank."

I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. It's simple enough to put together. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs.

"It's not bad."

So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. But even so, the tank is beautiful! I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co.

"I love this tank."

I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. Should survive the shipping process just fine! I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge.

"Don't overstock!"

DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.
