"Tank arrived intact."

The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. I think it will provide a good home and upgrade for my current aquarium inhabitants. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

"5 years in to ownership."

They are affordable and beautiful and well made. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. Should survive the shipping process just fine! The longest delay was my downloading invoice. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater.

"Crystal clear viewing."

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. I have been an active fish keeper for years. I bought two of these tanks and the quality of them in just amazing. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! I could not put water in it as shipped because the return pump was compromised. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again.

"Don't overstock!"

1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. It contains 8 styrofoam corner protectors on the tank. The size is in the description is accurate. If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder.

"Easy to assemble."

If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Double the amount of ceramic media they give you. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. You must buy a special one they produce for marine tanks.

"Stand is great."

I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours. Both my fish are doing well with this setup. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in. I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks.

"The Fluval 13."

Most important though is the lighting issue. The pic is a bit cloudy since I just filled it up and its still cycling. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. It came quickly, and was easy to set up. After some experimentation And constant monitoring I found that the flat Aqueon 7.

"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.

DREAMDEALS So Good First Impressions

"I've had it a day so far."

I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Not a single smear or excess silicon in any place, no bubbles, ymmv. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. I set this up just like I would have a big salt tank. Mostly I just love looking at this tank. The instructions are maybe two pages.

  • DreamDealsSG 100x Tourmaline Balls for Freshwater Aquarium Tank. Mineral Supplement Substrate. Live Shrimp Food, Betta Fish Food, and Crayfish Food. Water Conditioner for Freshwater Shrimp etc.
  • Vibrant health: Just like vitamins, minerals and pH balanced water for humans, your Shrimp, Bettas, Crayfish and Snails also need those things for bright colors, healthy breeding, molting and play! So, when you add DDSG Mineral Balls to your tank you’re giving your fishy friends, the best of health!
  • How do they work? Out in the wild, cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, amano shrimp, freshwater fish and all other water-lovin’ life are constantly exposed to pH balanced, mineral water from earth’s rocks – with natural bacteria. This is how they molt, breed and maintain healthy vibrancy. Our organic tourmaline is a natural rock with over 30 minerals to keep your tank balanced just like those wild waters.
  • Size and quantity: This is the most cost effective pack you’ve found on your search. Chances are you have at least one 10 gallon fish tank (but commonly 20 gallon tank, or 50 gallon). And because you’ll add one ¼ inch ball per gallon, you’ll need enough for every tank! So this 100 pack makes perfect sense.
  • Copper-free! Of course you may have some nerite snails and other friendly things in your shrimp tank, so you’ll love knowing each tourmaline ball is copper-free! And because they’re natural and pH balanced they keep your aquarium crystal clear, free from impurities, ammonia and hold a stable pH balance. And because they’re so mineral rich, your aquatic plants will get the nutrients they need, too.
  • Calcium-enhanced and more: DDSG Mineral Supplement beads contain 30 minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, boron, manganese and more. It’s like a daily dose of Spirulina for our splashy pals! Suited for freshwater aquarium snails, betta tank, freshwater shrimp, live crayfish and goldfish. So, feed them well, keep them clean, and supplement with DDSG Minerals so they can dazzle you for years!

"This was perfect!"

But even so, the tank is beautiful! The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Also there is more floor space to spread out the live rock and create a cool scape. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad.

"Attached some photos."

I have been an active fish keeper for years. After the foam is in I put the gravel in. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My ammonia is undetectable including the N2 and N3. Mine loves lounging and swimming through ours.

It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Still waiting for the silicone to cure.

I'm really liking the Landen line of aquariums.

"Scratch that."

I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. They are affordable and beautiful and well made. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. The most serious issue thus far is the light bar. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny!

You can see the pic and decide what's right for your needs. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. We had a new home built this year, and just moved in.

"I just bought my 4th."

My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I wanted to wait a little before reviewing so I could give a good and honest review. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed.
