"Excellent buy!"

It is awesome for a very small amount of water. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank.

Landen Final Thoughts

"It's gorgeous."

Also very important for filtration. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also.

"Pretty Happy."

That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! The size is in the description is accurate. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches.

Landen Final Thoughts

"Attached some photos."

A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. Should survive the shipping process just fine! I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump.

"I would buy another."

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. Put in small fish at 1 inch per gallon. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months.

Polar Bear's Pet Shop Final Thoughts

"I sometimes have diatoms."

Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also.

Vepotek ATC2700BK First Impressions

"Hold temperatures better."

It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more. Not a fan of the filtration sponge.

Vepotek ATC2700BK Final Thoughts

"I inspected all seams."

I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I am especially fond of the raised base. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

"They work well for algae."

I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases.

"5 gallon tank."

I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. Unboxing the inner package, with the tank itself was not difficult.

"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.

"They work well for algae."

My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co.

"Excellent buy!"

Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I had a coworker who also likes fish helping me and we had it together in 15 minutes. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"Hope this review helps!"

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! Please note that the tank is 100% clear.

You can't even see the pushed in spots. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. My other gripe would be with the lid. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank.

"This tank is super small."

Not a fan of the filtration sponge. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria.

Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. Highly recommend this for beginners. Both my fish are doing well with this setup.

"Recommended."

It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill.
