"Great beginners tank."

Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater.

  • Tangkula 1 Gallon Aquarium Fish Tank, Fish Aquarium with LED Light & Power Filter, Fish Bowl Comes with Artificial Aquatic Plants & Blue Jean Aquarium Gravel
  • Impact-resistant Acrylic Cover: Made of acrylic for better light transmission. Unlike glass, this material has higher strength and durability. One-piece structure of this stylish shaped fish tank does not need to worry about any leakage. The modern design aquarium is a beautiful home & office decor.
  • Energy-efficient LED lighting: Simple by touching the button, the LED light will illuminate the whole fish tank, providing a new experience for you to viewing your fish. Not only that, LED light has the characteristics of high brightness and low energy consumption and provides super bright light while ensuring durability and long life.
  • Filter Sponge & Silent Water Pump: Equipped with biochemical filter sponge. When pouring water, you need to pour on this filter in order to filter through other impurities and keep aquarium water crystal clear. More importantly, the air pump can be tightened to achieve the effect of mute operation. The air volume also can be adjusted by simply pressing the air pump.
  • Easy To Set Up and Maintain: There is a drain at the bottom for easy water change. The top cooling holes are designed to dissipate the heat from the water pump and led to avoid overheating. There is also a feeding hole on the top for feeding fish. Most importantly, the minimum water level must be exceeded when filling water to prevent the pump from heating and damaging.
  • Stylish Desktop Fish Tank & Great Holiday Gift: The 1 gallon small fish tank can raise guppies, angel fish and other ornamental fishes. Include with artificial aquatic plastic plants and blue jean aquarium gravel to create your own desktop aquarium. Apart from that, this fish aquarium with LED light is a great gift for friends, colleagues and family members for festival days or birthday parties.

Tangkula AM2759HM Final Thoughts

"It's so sleek!"

Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months.

"Absolutely luv it."

I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Overall great package and would definitely buy it again and recommend it. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh.

"Attached some photos."

Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims. I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia.

"5 thats all I can say."

Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. Most important though is the lighting issue. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. Please note that the tank is 100% clear.

"I love this tank."

I am especially fond of the raised base. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape.

"Tank arrived intact."

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. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill.

"I am in love with it!"

It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank. I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised.

Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. Not a fan of the filtration sponge. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. An Eco Bio block is a good idea to.

"I absolutely love it."

My other gripe would be with the lid. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! Most important though is the lighting issue. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks.

  • Aquatic Arts 10 Live Freshwater Pom Pom Crabs | Real Living Nano Aquarium Fish Tank Pet | Betta/Danio / Rasbora / Guppy Compatible
  • The rare Freshwater Pom Pom Crab is named for its unique pom-pom-like claws. Their shells appear to glow with yellow or tan colors, black or brown designs, and a texture like smooth polish.
  • Unlike hermit crabs, these are fully aquatic and must live in an aquarium or vivarium. An internal or external pump, a heater, and a filter are needed (a canister and bio sponge filter is ideal).
  • The bulk of their diet in nature and in aquariums is algae, but it can be supplemented with extra assorted foods such as dry flakes or pellet foods, algae wafers and treats, calcium treatment, etc.
  • These crabs seek hiding places to feel safe, such as an aquatic plant, decoration, or some sort of enclosure with an opening, like a cave or pipe. They go great with Spongebob Crusty Crab décor!
  • Each Aquatic Arts brand plants and animals kit comes with a 100% live arrival guarantee, offer of replacement or return of DOAs, plus free email support!

"Really beautiful tank."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. I will definitely be purchasing a Landen tank for all future purchases. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on. My other gripe would be with the lid.

"Looked good."

I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. All in all it is packaged very well.

I think I am going to get the 28 gallon also for my office area in the loft. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap.

Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. All in all it is packaged very well. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work.

"I inspected all seams."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. 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. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. They look the same as the ADA ones which cost a fair amount more.

"Scratch that."

My other gripe would be with the lid. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. I will try to come back in a few months with an updated photo of this tank. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. The purple coralline algae is growing well.

"5-3 fish, not 5."

Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I grabbed the Sungrow Aquarium Gravel Cleaner Kit. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank.

  • Priadi Sanjaya New 20 Live Freshwater Clam Pond Aquarium Filter Feeder Water Clarifier Captive Bred
  • Flow Rate: Up to 1 liter per hour
  • Water Type: Fresh
  • I like to use these clams in my ponds and especially aquariums to help filter the water. They are very efficient water cleaners, almost to the point of needing supplementation on food because they filter quickly. They are a live bearing type of clam so your prized fish will be gill free of any parasitic larvae that other types of clams release into the water column.
