"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.

"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.

Toledo Goldfish Final Thoughts

"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.

"I have used the h."

My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. I have been an active fish keeper for years. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. Wanted the ADA look but on a budget and this fits the bill.

"This was perfect!"

I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it. Bottom line is~28 hours after receipt this is one star. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame.

"Don't overfeed!"

It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. But even so, the tank is beautiful! Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. I find them very easy to keep clean.

"Great tank."

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.

"Not a fan."

Both my fish are doing well with this setup. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. Also very important for filtration. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71.

"First go to Greatwaveeng."

It came quickly, and was easy to set up. The Landen box is labeled fragile and inside an Amazon box. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again.

"Would buy again."

So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. The purple coralline algae is growing well. I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. All in all it is packaged very well. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect.

"Recommended."

By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. I put in some white stones and it looks amazing. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. It is awesome for a very small amount of water.

"Tank arrived intact."

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I still keep it as a hospital tank. I have a lot of freshwater tanks, but this is my 1st attempt at saltwater. This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes.

"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.

I still keep it as a hospital tank. 5 watt works well and keeps it between 78-80 degrees if the room air is around 70–71. Given the price I paid, I am hoping it will continue to hold water! My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.
