After the most recent demise of my last Betta- Hot Temper, who bless his heart, lived 2 years in a 1 gallon fish bowl, I found myself in a fish store (not so soon after, I did mourn the little guy). Wandering about I could not deny my instant love for a feisty beautiful little guy the size of a small drapery tassel, I brought him home (instant gratification and instant love is my middle name)...and proceeded to give him 'Hot Temper's' life all over again (yes...in a bowl), but this time I thought he might benefit from living at work with me (I work all the time)...fast forward to cute little fish, living on my desk, and between calls me looking up just what might make him happy (er)...I come to a sudden realization that I sucked as a fish mom(formerly) and needed to give the little guy what he truly deserved, more oxygen, more "toys", more room and heat. I bought this little aquarium wonder (w/a black top),bye bye bowl, and wow have I got one happy fish! This tank is an easy set up,the filter (that worried me sick) is great, it will not swallow or eat your Betta (as far as I can tell so far...thank goodness!),he is not struggling through any major currents and as far as I can tell, he is a happy camper (or show off). I purchased a small heater to keep his temp at what is most conducive to his normal habitat, my Betta is making bubbles nests, and showing off like a full finned champ. I always thought I had a happy Betta, until now, this fish is unbelievably active and showy. I know it's a fish, but he sure reminds me of a puppy with fins! I love this little tank, perfect on a desk top, easy to set up, perfect for a Betta (just buy a heater, plants, gravel and hiding nook and you're set!) Love this!!

I got this aquarium almost 5 years ago, and I love it! I even have two now.

I've had several different kinds of fish, neons, barbs, but this aquarium is really awesome for a betta.

The filter is great and with a betta I only change the filter every 4-5 months (no algae or anything). For multiple fish I had to change it maybe every three months because of the excess... waste :)

There is plenty of room in here for my betta, a plant and a little rock he likes to hide in as well as some gravel. The only reason I ordered the 5 gallon version of this tank is that my Betta has been alive for nearly 2 years and he's huge now! So I'm going to put my smaller betta in the 2.5g and I got the 5g mini bow for my betta-shark ;)

This aquarium has stood the test of time, I took it to my dorm and it moved with me into my apartment and has no scratches or leaks or anything. Because mine is rather old I've gone through about 2 light bulbs but Wal-mart carries replacements so it wasn't a big deal. Mine is also some what dirty on the outside (dust and gunk) but that's due to the age.

This aquarium would be perfect for any kids or first time aquarium owners! I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone... EVERYONE!

It's hard to find a small aquarium with an actual filter instead of just a bubbler, and this is perfect. I only wish I had gotten it in a different color because the red doesn't really match anything now!

Color: Black Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of articles about betta care, and this is a very popular aquarium among Betta fish owners. For the money, it is a very nice tank. I purchased a heater and thermometer, so that I can make sure that the water was warm enough for my Betta fish. (Ideal temp. is 75 - 81 degrees F). The only problem that I had with the kit is the filter. It blew my male Betta every which way. It frustrated my Betta fish, and I was concerned that he was going to get hurt by the intake vale. A pre-filter sponge is absolutely needed if you have a Betta fish (especially a male Betta which are generally not very strong swimmers). The pre-filter sponge fits on the outside of intake vale. It protects the fish from getting pulled into the intake vale and reduces the outflow current. Fluval EDGE Pre-Filter Sponge Item model number: A1387

I bought this tank (in black) from a local pet store. Its perfect for a betta fish or a few small tropical fish (not really suitable for gold fish as they get big and produce too much waste for a small tank like this) I bought a blue and red male betta fish named Carl to go along with it. I brought the tank home and set it up with black background black gravel (with some yellow for contrast) and a medium Anubias plant from a 20 gallon tropical tank that I have had for 8 months now. I also bought the Hydor Mini Heater designed for 2-5 gallon aquariums this heater is different then conventional thermostat controlled glass aquarium heaters. The element is a no-set plastic pad perfect for hiding in the gravel (this heater has not given me any troubles, and keeps the tank at about 75 degrees constantly.) I used water from my already established and cycled 20 gallon tank so as to not shock Carl.

The Good:
This 2.5 gallon tank has been great the filter is perfect, both mechanical and chemical filtration in a small silent form ( the filter would be better if it was a tiny backpack filter as it kills some of the functionality of the light, which I will talk about in a little bit) but overall does a great job keeping the water crystal clear.

The Bad:
The hood could be reengineered, the ballast is facing the wrong direction so the functional part of the light is hanging over the filter. This is a problem if you are using an incandescent bulb (which comes stock with this setup) as it causes unnecessary heat leading directly to excess algae growth in the filter and tank (I had to replace the filter cartridge after a week, because of the large amount of algae bloom I experienced in the first week.
