Product Description

Anyone can put a pencil holder on a desk - why settle for that when you can have something infinitely cooler, like this USB-powered desktop aquarium. The ingenious design recirculates and aerates the water, while the integrated color changing LED lights provide a captivating display.

It even provides soothing nature sounds if you'd like. It might be more productive than you are, but we'll keep that our little secret. Tank includes under gravel filtration system, decorative gravel and a plastic fern. Operates through USB power connector. You'll have to provide your own fish.

I bought this product once, and returned it because it was missing a part.
Ruth Arberman
Until I decided to add a tiny albino cory and a platty. this system pump works very well and my fishes have been alive for about 2 months now.
Juan
This would be fine if the volume of the tank was at all appropriate for small fish.

I read the first review and was put off but after having one for a month and loving every bit of it I have to tell everyone this tank is NOT big enough for Goldfish but it is PERFECT for Guppies and other small fish. When buying my fish it was easy enough to ask the man at the pet shop what would thrive in such a small habitat. I was given several fish that would work but this Guppy caught my eye, since then he's been my desk buddy. He is happy as can be and I have no complaints. It adds life to my otherwise sterile lifeless desk.

Bottom line: I love it! (don't use goldfish dummy)

This is a very nice looking little tank, I have had mine for about a month and it is still going strong. I have 2 ghost shrimp and a mystery snail housed in mine. I would not recommend putting anything much bigger in there. You might be able to get away with a couple small tetras or guppies tho.
It is a very small tank, so do not expect to house a goldfish or beta humanely in this.(as the above ranter mentioned goldfish need way more space and are really dirty fish so need a powerful filter) Their is no actual filtration on this tank when it arrives , so my water began to get a bit cloudy after a week. I added a bit of activated charcoal and a biosponge underneath the plastic grate that holds the gravel off of the pump so that the water has to be pulled through that before it is pumped back to the top and my water has been crystal clear since. I also cut a small square of black plastic mesh to make a little lid for this so my critters could not escape, and to keep my cats from drinking the water.

The first one I received had a leak at the base of the water spicket where the water goes back into the tank. It got water all in the accessory holder side and it leaked onto my desk. These things happen. The replacement works well enough but it has a flaw as well, but not worth me making a second return. The temperature gauge is wrong. It claims it is 81.5 degrees. I don't know if it's supposed to be outside temp or water temp, but either way that is impossible. It is 70 degrees in my house and there is no heater in the tank. It is out of the sunlight and the water is cool. I also expected the screen backlight to be on like in the picture, but it only comes on if you're changing settings.
The USB cord is ridiculously short. I needed an extension usb cable.

This is a neat little tank, however. It is good for one small fish, like a guppy, tetra, or glofish. It is NOT good for a goldfish or a better. It is too small, plus goldfish are really dirty fish, especially for a tank without good filtration.

Pros:
Good size for small office desk
Clock is a nice touch and bonus
Pen holder make this functional as well. Very nice touch
Good for small fish. I have two neons in mine. They are very small.
Faucet filter

Cons:
Battery install is on the bottom of the tank. If the batteries die you will need to disturb the tank and fish to get to them
USB should have powered the entire device. It would have been nice to have the USB power the clock, lights, etc rather than batteries at all. If it must have batteries, a tray install on the bottom right hand or rear right hand side would make it accessible once it has occupants.
Faucet filter: While I listed this as a pro, the con is that the flow rate is not adjustable and it does disturb the water heavily especially considering the size of the fish you can have in it.
The sounds option is pretty useless considering the quality.

Recommendations:
User should be diligent and willing to manually cycle a small percent of the water every 4 to 5 days in my opinion.
Do not leave the faucet filter on full time for certain fish (Bettas for example)
Put the batteries in first (Yes, I made that mistake)

I've had this tiny tank running on my work desktop for over a year now. The pump runs fine and I haven't had any leaks or malfunctions. I find the clock and temperature gauge are actually pretty useful. However, the year of running has lead to a considerable amount of corrosion on the faucet filter outflow. It's pretty obvious from the corrosion that under the silver paint, the works are made of copper. This would be fine if the volume of the tank was at all appropriate for small fish. (I personally won't keep a betta in anything smaller than a 5 gallon tank.) I had instead tried to keep small ornamental shrimp in it before the corrosion appeared but they all died off. Which won't be a surprise to anyone who knows that dissolved copper is toxic to shrimp and other invertebrates. So basically this small aquarium isn't suited to any aquatic animals that I can think of. You could set up a cute little water garden but again, the space and lighting is limited. While I still have mine running, it only contains some java moss and some moss balls. Perhaps if the space you have it in has other lighting you could grow some sort of aquatic plant out of the top of it. Just don't put animals in it. They're not going to live for very long.
