"Absolutely luv it."

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. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures.

"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.

"Thank you Duncan!"

I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. Secondly, the up close picture of the logo and silicon work is VERY close. Just do your homework and don't overload this tank. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

"Crystal clear viewing."

Also have live sand on the bottom, about 1plus inches. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. I am especially fond of the raised base. It took less than 10 minutes to get a new light bar shipped out. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. I have been an active fish keeper for years.

"Easy to assemble."

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH IT. I will update if I have any issues. But even so, the tank is beautiful! I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. It's simple enough to put together. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. He is so happy and swims around all day instead of just sitting in a corner.

"Not a fan."

Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. I will update if I have any issues. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants.

"It's so sleek!"

I used an Aquatop Np302 and the tubing from the Portrait as my return pump. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Glass was very well packaged and arrived in excellent condition. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. Next is to cut your foams into donuts to fit snug around the bottom filter cartridge.

Red Sea 42082 Final Thoughts

"My betta really likes it."

Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again.

"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.

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. I recommend buying the biOtube polish to! I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far! Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. It came quickly, and was easy to set up.

  • Many fish can and will jump out of your aquarium. Nearly all fish can do this for numerous reasons.
  • On a similar note, a cover will help foreign objects from falling into the aquarium. If there are young children or pets in your household, this could be a very important consideration. Same thing if you keep any supplies above the tank.
  • A cover reduces evaporation, which means you will not lose water as quickly. This can be pretty noticeable in warm water systems. Evaporation can also leave mineral deposits behind.

"Looks great!"

It will help establish your good bacteria, and get the nitrogen cycle started. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums. I have been an active fish keeper for years. A little piece of foam in the bubble tube keeps gravel out while putting it in. I didn't wipe this tank down after unboxing it, those aren't scratches etc. I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more.

"Very well made."

Mostly I just love looking at this tank. Keep up with water changes and testing and it'll be smooth sailing. I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank. Both my fish are doing well with this setup.

"Tank arrived intact."

At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. My sponge, duster worms, snails and crabs, porcelain and emerald are doing well. I would like a heater, but it costs more than the tank. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. The standard filter doesn't work with a SALTWATER aquarium.

You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. I've wanted this tank for a LONG time, and I love it.

"Feed fish."

By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less.

"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.

Tangkula AM2759HM First Impressions

"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.

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.

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.
