The water sound is relaxing.

I think that's a misleading and irresponsible picture.
This tank is perfect for a betta fish.

** Update/Added Comment: I just wanted to add to this review that Seachem Onyx fractured substrate (sand) is a REALLY good looking addition to these Chi setups. If you want to bring out the color of any plants or aquatic life in a Chi, especially Red Cherry or Ghost shrimp, put the Onyx substrate in there. It's pure black and sets everything off perfectly. It also contributes minerals to the water! ***

*** Update 2012-Jan-31 : A cover is now available for the Fluval Chi Fluval Chi Cover and works for the 5 and 6.6 gallon models. This is great if you're concerned about an aquatic pet jumping out. ***

*** Update 2013-Jun : About 18 months after first setting the tank up, the LED lights went out. They have been in constant use since setup, so around 13,200 hours. That's a low lifetime for LED's. The fact they all went out at once leads me to believe either the power circuitry had an issue (likely, since the low lifetime) or the LED quality was poor. I'm going to investigate, and install some new LED's of my own to increase WPG for my new natural setup. I will report back.

I didn't purchase my Chi from Amazon, but I've had it for a year and wanted to share my input. This is a perfect aquarium for some aquarium life/plants, or even just to have plants only. In fact, I'm buying two more this week for my living room!

There's several great reviews which go over the Chi in depth so I don't want to reinvent the wheel, if you'd like to see those as well just go check out the 4 & 5 star reviews.

The Chi is just gorgeous, it's a beautiful piece of art for a fish to live in. And when I say A fish, I mean a SINGLE fish.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this tank other than the fact that the people typically buying it have not bothered to research that you can not jam 10 fish in a 5 gallon tank. Of course this tank's filtration system isn't powerful enough to clean water from 10 fish, it was never meant to have that many. Nor is any 5 gallon tank. The way to keep your tank clean and clear? Let it go through it's cycling process (which takes months, not weeks), don't overfeed, and please, if you want your fish to live, do not overstock your tank! The rule of thumb is for every gallon of water you have 1 inch of adult fish (in community tropical settings), and it doesn't apply to all fish. So, on average you get 5 fish for the 5 gallon tank. Make your fish even happier by allowing them to have space (so they don't stress out over territory) and only putting 1-3 in a 5 gallon. Fish usually end up dying in their own ammonia build up in an overstocked tank - a great way to go, eh?

This tank is beautiful, tranquil, and perfect for a betta or 3 fancy guppies, but not much else... Like all other small tanks (and despite it's own advertising, most advertising preys on the mass' ignorance). This isn't a problem with this tank, but par for all small tanks. I HIGHLY recommend this aquarium for those with a betta. Please people, remember to research animals before you bring them into your home that way you can enjoy aquariums like these for what they have to offer.

Size Name: 5-Gallon Verified Purchase
I am a novice at this. This Review is based on only six weeks experience with: 1 male betta, 1 java moss ball, one java fern, Aqueon 50-Watt heater and CaribSea Eco-Complete substrait. The tank cycled in two weeks and has stayed stable since then. I am also in no way affiliated with any websites I link to.

The Good first (naturally):
-Attractive design...if you're into this sorta thing.
-Solid enough build quality. (Still made in the Glorious Peoples Republic of China...)
-SUPER quiet! You can move rocks around to dampen the gurgling water sound. The actual filter pump is almost silent!
-Built in light is convenient. (And it's not THAT dim...)

The Not So Good: (For me at least, but maybe not for you!)
-Light in fountain stays on ALL THE TIME. (seriously trippy at night)
-Filter placement and design.

It may look nice to have that filter placed in the middle of the tank will water cascading down the sides. But, if you have a betta fish or any species that don't like current this is a HORRIBLE set up for them. The waterfall effect creates a pretty strong down current in the center of the tank, and an equally strong up current at the sides. This may be great for filtering, but our long finned friends do not appreciate it! Gromit would get taken for a ride up and down with the current and try to stuff himself into a corner behind one of the moss balls to escape.

The center mounted filter also takes up a lot of real estate, which because of the current made feeding a challenge.

I was able to move the filter to the side, but it was no longer on its clip so it could tip rather easily. This helped a little, but not much.
